Stayed only one night for business but I can tell you the place itself is a very nice design building, really modern. The restaurant they have is one of the best in the area, not cheap but you pay for what is worth for, try the fillet, you will not be dissapointed. The waiter was so attentive, always bringing homemade... More

A bit off the beaten path but that is the beauty of this hotel. Staff provided excellent service and always greeted you with a warm smile and Hello! Not your typical European hotel as the rooms are spacious! The breakfast buffet has plenty to off but only negative is the cappuccino machine is not capable of meeting demand as it... More

I enjoyed very much my staying at Zen Balagares. It is very relaxing with a very competitive spa. You can easily do some outdoors activities and enjoy some savoury Asturian food. The rooms are well equipped and very tranquil. The service was impeccable and I was very well treated. I will go back again.

Was expecting a lot more from a 4 star! The hotel lobby and bar area are very nice, but there is no atmosphere at all, the place has no soul. The reception staff were friendly enough though, about the only saving grace! The guy in the bar was horrendous, didn´t so much as crack a smile and was positively unfriendly!... More

You know those big monstrosity type hotels that stand out on the landscape being all ostentatious.......this is worse!! This is one of four hotels (three were great, this one wasn't) we stayed in on a trip around Northern Spain....it was the most expensive and meant to be a kind of one night of luxury....the hotel itself could accommodate that.....the staff...

You can take a Taxi to Hotel (from Airport about 30 Euro) I paid ONLY 55 Euro with breakfast for a huge room with great bathroom with shower and big bath. Staff are... More

I stayed here recently because my first choice of NH Palacio De Ferrera was fully booked up. This hotel would have been my preference as it is in the very centre of the town and convenient for everything on foot whereas Zen Balagares is about 10 minutes drive out of the town and doesn’t really have too much around it....
