Old but clean room. Located in the centre, very nice. But rooms are very close. You hear every sound who enters from the main door. Very noisy group came singing at midnight, some people were checking out early morning with luggages passing from your door..

Very central, it's really near Bilbao's main theatre. No breakfast available but there are tonnes of bakeries, shops and restaurants around (including an amazing ham shop right opposite!) that make this place ideal for a foodie trip. The rooms are basic but very clean and have wardrobe, en suite shower, bath and loo and small safe. I am fine with...

Great place right in the heart of Bilbao. Very convenient, the room was quite big and incredibly clean. The size of the bathroom was also a nice surprise. You have plenty of places to eat at your doorstep and the places to visit are within walking distance. Don't miss the "pintxos walk". Our recepcionist was really kind and helpful. Thank...

Lovely hotel, situated in the Casco Viejo (Old Town) area. Friendly, helpful staff. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet ( room 301 ). The bathroom was first rate. No tea/coffee facilities, or breakfast. However, there is a plethora of tapas bars to accommodate you. Finding your way to the Casual Gurea is quite straightforward. Take the Bizkaibus 3247 from...

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...

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...
