My girlfriend's family were visiting and we had to find a cheap hotel that was clean, tidy .. and we found this hotel, which was also brand new, modern and very confortable:
It has a taxi stop in front of it, it is 100m from the beach. We loved it!! Sadly it is not in Tripadvisor yet.
Best time to go to Gijon is from 21st of June until 15th of Agust.
That is the time when the "Fiestas de Prao" (Field parties) happen. There are small sparishes around the city and each one has a patron saint, so there is a party there all weekend when its the patron week. During the day it is more family friendly, during night its for younger people. The 15th is the patron saint of Gijon it self, so the week of the 7th to the 15th is when most of the activities happen and when the city is at its busiest.
Outside the summer, the best times to visit are in the Spring (Martch onwards). It can be cold and rainy, but Spring is usually better weather-wise than Autum. It is the best moment to see the land at its most "green" and try out the outdoors.
Gijon is pepered with museums to visit when the weather is not so good, but if it sunny there is loads to see in the city and its outskirts.
