“impersonal, insouciant staff in a hot, sticky concrete box”
Reviewed June 3, 2007

My wife and I visited Oviedo in late May 2007 and stayed at the Tryp. The good points were that the room was reasonably clean and the hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk to the centre. However, the night was hot and humid yet the hotel blandly informed us when we complained that the aircon had not been turned on in the hotel (though the heating had been turned off!) so we had an insufferably hot, sticky and sleepless night in consequence. Our room faced the main railway line, so opening the window wasn't an option. The duty manageress clearly couldn't care less that we were unhappy with the situation and flatly stated that the hotel had air conditioning - as per the brochure - even though she admitted it was off! Nothing had been said at check-in, of course.

Overall, it was an unpleasant experience, particularly at the (high) price. On our return to Oviedo later in the week, we stayed at the infinitely nicer Reconquista.

We arrived in Oviedo in the rush hour and did the usual circles while looking for parking/hotel. The TRYP shone like a beacon and although we guessed from its appearance that it must be expensive we were too tired to travel on. What a surprise! The price was so low we had to enquire was it per person. But it was per room. Car was whisked into the integral garage. Room was huge and, although on the busy corner opposite the station, the double glazing kept out noises. Staff were wonderful. Gave us maps and directions to enable us to eat in one of the typical small restaurants near the cathedral. Breakfast was great. Altogether a great find, and one that has ensured that we try TRYP first in every Spanish city we visit.

We'd never been to Oviedo before and were very pleased with this brand new hotel. If you're looking for quirky or individual, this is not for you, but as chain business hotels go this one is very nice, well-finished and quiet. I've found this to be true of all the Solmelia hotels I've used in Spain. The location, between bus and train stations at the top of the city's main shopping street, is excellent, and the hotel has a garage, although you have to pay 12Euros a night for it.
