Three of us stayed for a night in this old-fashioned hotel in the centre of Gijon. Very pleasant stay within walking distance of everything. Agreeable "post-war" feel to the place with very helpful staff. Stay here if you are in Gijon. It is also very good value.

We stayed here for a week over Christmas while visiting family in the city. It is located very close to the pedestrianized city centre, but only ten minutes walk from the sea. We had a very spacious room, with separate sitting area, in the old style with plenty of wood but also with modern facilities. The breakfast, which is an... More

We visited this hotel spontaneously and were pleasantly surprised by the friendly front staff, the decent price, the old fashioned but spacious rooms, the comfortable beds and the nice and again bargain breakfast. Otherwise we experienced Gijon as a very quiet place where you better book a restaurant ahead to ensure it is actually open.

Great hotel, excellent staff. Spent two nights in September and would recommend highly. Free wifi which worked!. Plasma tv in room. Staff recommended local restaurants and were very helpful. Room did not face the street and we did get a great night's sleep. Air conditioning was available although not needed. Would return.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel. We picked it because of its location. The rooms are spacious and facilities are well maintained, spotlessly clean. The bathroom ventilation connects you to the other bathrooms so you hear everything from other rooms. Since there is no safety grid, mosquitoes and other self-invited guests arrived through there. We had to sleep with... More

The hotel is lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely room with a sitting area and even though we were on a higher floor the wifi was very good. Breakfast was very basic with a very confusing 3 tier system that didn't work for us so we ended up eating breakfast out every day.... More
