We attended a wedding a couple of weeks ago, + this was the closest hotel to the church (in the old quarter as there are many) It's 2 mins walk to the Cathedral + historic quarter and 5 - 10 mins to the main shops. What a beautiful city + what a great hotel.
We got a really budget price for a room that was plenty big enough + a really good sized bathroom too! Everywhere was spotless + the staff were really friendly. The breakfast was hit & miss - quite pricey for the full buffet (you could get cheaper outside the hotel) + sometimes no coffee machine around, but was ok. Didn't eat in the restaurant but had a cheeky nightcap in the bar which was a lovely atmosphere.
We were lucky enough to be put on the top floor (after I asked!) so had great views, were away from the traffic + had a lovely big balcony (though a bit too nippy to take too much advantage of!) Although the down side was that the machines up there were very noisy - but that was only for the first night + then it seemed to disappear!
We were a bit wary as the room rate we got was so cheap we didn't know if we had got a real bargain (we had) or if it was going to be a dive (it wasn't!)
A wonderful city to visit, great shopping, fab food, amazing culture - and this is the perfect base to do that........
It is walkable from the bus or train stations, and less than 5 Euro in a taxi.
Whilst there, make sure to take the bus into Gijon (very Spanish city by the beach) and if you have a car don;t miss out on the Lakes & Cangis de Onis - another city in the countryside worth a visit.
Great trip - thanks Gran Espana - we will be back!
