Having booked for ourselves and another couple, I was a little nervous to read on Trip Advisor about the building works spoiling some guests stay. I was delighted to find all of the work completed. The hotel is very central, in the heart if the old city. It is exceptionally clean and our room was spacious with comfortable beds. Very...

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...

Thanks Macshortie for your nice review. NIce to hear you enjoyed our property. This summer we had few days of hot temperature, no usual at all. It is true we are just a few steps to underground and bus stops and that helps. Regards,

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. Having travelled from Gibraltar to the UK we stayed in 5 hotels on the way. This was by far the most expensive and by far the poorest...

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. There are 4 and 5 hotels in southern much more sad that our property for sure...is your option to book or not in Bilbao but qualify our property not comparing with others...Spain is too high and different. Being cheaper would improve your rate? Sorry for not satisfy your expectation. Kind...

Our room was a standard double, with a private bathroom. Basic, but clean and had everything we needed for a couple of nights in this fun place. The location is central in old town, so we were able to walk around, see some sites, come up to rest (siesta like locals) and then begin the evening pintxos feast. Front desk...

Although there was construction going on on the ground floor we managed to get the lift to the third floor and were warmly welcomed. Our room wasn't ready as we were quite early but the girl behind the desk gladly took our rucksacks and stored them in the room behind her until we returned. The room was fairly spacious with...

Shock upon realising that we had to walk past a construction site on the ground floor. Lift being renovated. Hotel on 3rd floor, so had to walk up dusty wooden stairs. Each floor looked a mess around the lift. Reception area all painted in matt white. seemed like everything was given a once over. Room was fine and bed comfortable....

The Casual was being refurbished when I was there but the location in the old town more than made up for that. The staff on reception were very helpful, marking maps with the sightseeing locations, bars and restaurants. My room and bed were very clean and the hotel amenities were very good. After booking out, I was allowed to store...

Don't go here at the moment whatever you do. We arrived and struggled to find the entrance - it was actually through the building site at the front! (see the pictures).
