“Comfortable but one or two downsides”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Myself and my husband visited hotel Alfonso II for one night in April.
The hotel is modern and the rooms are nicely decorated if a little lacking in character. We had a balcony facing the road which is great for my husband who is a smoker.
The bathroom was palatial, with everything you could want - but the floor was too hot to stand on! Even the cleaner did not know how to turn the heating down.
The location of the hotel is fine, ten minutes walk from the station in a residential area.
The breakfast was very nice but the service at breakfast was a bit hit and miss, with some people being served drinks by waiting staff but others not. I would stay again , and I would recommend the hotel.

Stayed April 2015, traveled as a couple

This is a really nice hotel. As other reviewers say and I endorse, it is a well presented hotel in a very nice part of the city. The centre is fairly easy walking distance.

The rooms are a good size and well equipped. The bathroom was excellent. Service from the reception desk was most warm and friendly.

The only issue for us was the amazing loud noises from the plumbing system which we found very intrusive. I was woken by the room above taking a shower which sounded like the water was draining over my head. The toilet flushing was also very noisy. This was a shame as I have had to mark the rating down on this basis. The WIFI was also temporarily unavailable on the second floor during our stay.

This small hotel is absolutely lovely---and a real bargain! The room was not huge, but had a good amount of storage space, and was tastefully decorated, with a comfortable bed (twins with a shared headboard). Our room had two charming, but small balconies---make that three, since the bathroom also had a tiny balcony! The bathroom was beautiful, with a bathtub equipped with a shower head that provided a very nice, strong spray. Wifi was excellent, and the breakfast buffet offered a wide variety of choices, plus eggs cooked as you like, with bacon or sausage. The man at the reception desk was extremely friendly and helpful. The parking situation, however, is not very good. The basement level space offered only enough spots for four cars with a very tight squeeze. Another reviewer said that they found parking on the street, but I saw no evidence at all of nearby street parking places. Other than the parking situation, the hotel is wonderful. I only wish we could have stayed more than one night...

We enjoyed two nights at the Hotel Alfonso II. We both felt like the establishment was more a private hotel or B&B, as there is no sense of it being big or having lots of guests. Our room was pleasant with all the conveniences and fixtures we needed. The hotel offered private parking, which is a great advantage when you are driving. Staff were very friendly and helpful, giving us good tips about places to visit and eat in. Breakfast was good without being extensive, but was served with great attention to our requests (the home made pancakes were sensational). The hotel is well placed as you can walk to all of Oviedo's sights. To sum up, this hotel offers friendly service, pleasant rooms, good position, all the conveniences required for an extremely well priced rate.

Alfonso II may lie a short walk from the historical center, the shopping areas and the cider street, but those steps give an excellent payback. The hotel is modern and well-kept, thr rooms are beautiful and well-equipped and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is worth every penny - delicious and plentiful. Car parking is available but street parking is also possible.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

We stayed here for three nights at the start of our trip. It's located slightly out of the centre of town, but about 15 minutes walk from the bus station and about 10 from the train station, so the location is handy if not using a car.

We were welcomed warmly by reception (others have mentioned this too), full of advice and recommendations about things to do and see. We had a room on the first floor, 106 I think, which faced the side and front of the hotel. It had three little balconies, all very sweet, but no room for sitting out. Although we faced the road, there was no particular road noise. I know others have mentioned this, but it's just the usual few cars and the bus going past. It's not a busy main street.

The room was comfortable, albeit with a 3/4 sized bath. There was aircon, which made our lives very comfortable. It had a mini-fridge, safe and TV (with Spanish channels). Beds were comfortable and we had the added delight of towelling robes and slippers. Very louche! We didn't have the breakfast, so can't comment on that.

There is a supermarket nearby, just above the station, so you can easily acquire the necessaries there. It's a reasonable walk uphill to the two churches of San Miguel de Lillo and Santa María del Naranco, so you don't to mess around with a bus, unless you want to avoid the walk uphill. We did it in about 20 minutes, with a few puffs at the top.

So, all in all, very enjoyable stay, comfortable hotel and recommend it to anyone who wants something a bit more cosy than the average big chain hotel.

Room Tip: Don't ignore the rooms by the road, unless you have the aural equivalent of the princess and the...
