Gijon was a waystop on our way from Porto, Portugal to San Sebastian, Spain. And what a fun waystop it was. The Hotel Asturias is great, right near the best restaurants and bars, and the plaza for sitting and watching people. The beach is just across the street. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
If you are looking for a Marriott or Intercontinental, this is not the hotel. If you are looking for a slice of Spain that you won't find in the numbing sameness of the big chains, then Hotel Asturias is a find. The beds were great, the room spacious, the view from our windows which opened fully, was spectacular.
This might become a destination for another trip to Spain.More
