We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and were very happy with the friendly and helpful reception we received. The location is about 20 min walk along the promenade from plaza del Carmen. It isn't close to the center but there are good transport links to get you there. The bus 20 ( stop called oasis)goes from close to the... More

On my first visit to Gijon, I stayed in the hotel next door NH Gijon. On my second visit which was just the week after, I stayed in Abba Playa. There was a huge difference in terms of energy level of the staff in this one. I felt that the reception staff are way more professional, friendly and efficient. The... More

Dear Sandra: Thank you very much for your comments. Check in time is at 2 and altough we try to have rooms ready before that time this is not always possible so that's why your room was ready by 12:30 p.m. We never confirm the bedding type on the room and we try to give each client the bed type...

Situated on the sea front near the Sporting Gijon football stadium , this nice four star hotel is very clean and modern with good rooms , comfortable beds and sea views . However this is the only hotel I have stayed at when I would recommend not to have a sea view because there is a busy road outside which... More

This hotel really does have a superb location if you like sandy beaches - about 50m from the superb San Lorenzo beach. It is, however, about 1 mile from the Plaza Espana (all along the sea front, so a lovely walk). Views from the east side are poor (another hotel), views from the west are a mix - to the... More

I stay at the abba playa regularly for business and am never disappointed. Rooms are clean and modern and reasonably sized Hotel is well maintained and location is convenient. Breakfast is always good and service is very friendly and just formal enough to make you feel special. Good value and good service!

My family and I stayed at the Abba, for 3 nights last week. In our opinion the the hotel has everything for both adults and children (5 and 9) it's 30 seconds walk from the beach, it has a swimming pool, but despite being near busy roads it was very quiet. We ate in both the cafeteria and the restaurant... More

This is one of the more modern hotels in the Gijon area. The hotel is front line offering good beach access but is a good 1.5km from the historic town centre. Despite being surrounded by busy roads the hotel is quiet. The AC system could be more efficient - but that is the only negative. The hotel bar and restaurant... More

Clean hotel, room was fine. Staff friendly but there only ever seemed to be one person on the front desk so I was checked in and out by staff on the phone to other people... Breakfast was fine; not the biggest spread but adequate.
