“OK for the price”
Reviewed August 17, 2011

Pros:
The location is excellent, right off the Cathedral. The cidery downstairs is very pleasant--we had a great dinner there. Despite how popular it seems to be, we didn't hear much noise (our room faced the back, which may be why). Very clean facilities.

Cons:
Really a small bedroom and bath. There was enough for us and our overstuffed backpacks, but anyone with real luggage would have difficulty. In addition, the room was really, really stuffy and over-warm (again, maybe because we faced the back courtyard? maybe rooms facing the front get better ventilation?).

Overall:
While this place had some definite merits, I think we'll look for somewhere else next time if we return to Oviedo. Asturias may not be an especially warm part of Spain, but after two seriously uncomfortable nights, I'll pay extra for air conditioning. And just a little more space would be nice, too.

I can't believe this hotel hasn't gotten more reviews. It is in the smack center of Oviedo literally around the corner from the main plaza and cathedral. I was on the second floor and due to a very popular restaurant on the ground floor it was a bit loud. I don't personally mind this because I am a deep sleeper and, well, I'm from NYC and I'm use to noise but other people use to peace and quiet while they sleep may not necessarily find this easy to ignore. However, for the price I think I paid 40 euros, the location (walkable from both bus and train station and from main street Calle de Uria where most buses pass) you get a nice room with a small TV, a nice, clean bathroom, and friendly employees who try and go out of their wy to assist you even though they sometimes attend the restaurant as well.

A very basic, but solid hotel in an excellent location in the heart of the old city. A view of the cathedral from the back bedroom was fantastic and it's just minutes from the San Francisco Park and Campoamor Theatre.
Service from the reception and restaurant staff were excellent. The room was clean and comfortable; however the bathroom occasionally smelled of sewer. The food in the hotel restaurant on the second floor was very good and very inexpensive. The bar on the ground floor which shares the same kitchen, is always packed with plenty of locals and is open late (not so great if your bedroom is located above it).
There is a lift and free Wi-Fi, but connectivity on the upper floors is intermittent at best. The staff were extremely helpful in providing tourist information and recommendations.
Overall, our stay was very pleasant...so much in fact we stayed an extra unplanned night. Oviedo is an unbelievably charming city and the Ovetense played a large part in providing a safe and clean suite to put our feet up in after a long day of exploring.

I stayed here for four weeks in Jan/Feb of 2009 and the Ovetense was the perfect hotel for my stay. Unbelievably friendly staff who go out of their way to help you with anything you need, GREAT location in the middle of the old city just off the Cathedral Plaza and the rooms are lovely too - cleaned very well, every day, have TV and are nice and warm (quite important in Northern Spain during winter). The hotel's bar is one of the most popular in Oviedo, but the crowd are lovely, a bunch of old locals who play cards or sing traditional songs... if they're coming to the bar it can't be a bad place.

Food is great too - a real mix of stuff which is all well prepared.

All in all, stay here if you're making a stop-off in Oviedo, it's excellent value for money and you'll get looked after!
