After a turbulent few nights in a hostel in Gijón, we were pleased to find that our gamble for a super-cheap hotel in Oviedo had paid off massively! Though the location means those without a tolerance for walking might get frustrated after a few days, the hotel is just such good value that walking 10 minutes to the town centre is a very, VERY small price to pay.
We paid something ridiculous like £15 a night for a double room, with an en-suite bathroom AND shower, a working TV, free WIFI, remote control lights, a sink, and a super-comfortable bed. We stayed in the 'Budget' side of the hotel, facing north (it's really like two Ibis hotels put back to back; one Budget, one regular) and got the most spectacular view of Monte Naranco shrouded in mist every morning and glowing with spotlights every night.
The staff were incredibly helpful and were lively and attentive even in the dead of night. They were also happy to circle various points of interest and good restaurants on the map.
All in all, it was just a joy to stay in this hotel. It's one of those hotels you sometimes can't wait to get back to; like a little safe haven from the culture shock. Even more so when I think of the money I saved. Well done Ibis!
