We stayed here for four nights and were really happy. The location is impossible to beat and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was fine and we had no trouble with noise. Although they don't do breakfast there is a pretty well equipped communal kitchen area so we found that whipping up a yoghurt and fruit breakfast... More

In the old town, this is very well placed. The reception was friendly and helpful. The room was a little spartan but adequate and clean. A shame they don't offer breakfast. It suited us for a one night stop.

The hotel is very well located in the old town. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. But... If you want to sleep at night, forget about that. There is no acoustic insulation whatsoever. You can hear the people in the next-door room talk (and do other things) and you hear every guest arriving late walking through the hallway. It's very... More

Stayed recently in Casual Gurea, rooms on one floor of building. Room was large, clean but very warm. No proper air conditioning but two fans provided. Adequate but we slept with porch doors open all night, not ideal in festival season with outside noise. We paid €95 for one night which I think is steep but saying that for convenience... More

Noisy overpriced, hard to find and small rooms. Apart from that it's ok. My title says it all really, it's in Bilbao which is a great city, however this accommodation is way overpriced.
