“modern, clean, "diverse" neighbourhood”
Reviewed August 8, 2009

Hotel was modern and clean, and did an good breakfast. We'd lost the map of how to get there, so navigated via signposts to the St Julian de los Prados church, which is supposed to be a few meters away. The 16 year old & I got out of the car to find the hotel - that took about half an hour, as people understood our Spanish question, but we didn't really understand the answers. When we did find the hotel, it took us a fast 15 minute jog to get back St Julian - hardly "a few meters". The hotel is on a road that was socially very mixed - not many tourists there, though you could see Oviedo Catherdral in the distance. Walking into town wouldn't have been great as I think it would have involved a dual carriageway - though there may be a better walking route - we got a taxi at only 5 euros. The receptionist was very helpful and printed out a map of our next destination for us.

It’s a rather modern hotel. The room is well decorated and clean. The bathroom is especially spacious and clean. Good shower.
The location: the hotel is not in the centre – takes us about 15-20 minutes to walk from the hotel to the Cathedral in the centre. The advantage of this hotel for us is it offers an onsite parking place at Euro 7/day. They’ll give you a card to enter an underground garage which is connected to the hotel lobby. Parking is such a headache in the town centre, even with parking lots.
There’s a supermarket 5-min walk away, and there are quite a few places to eat and drink nearby. Quite convenient.
The staff is quite helpful in terms of providing info of sightseeing etc.
We stayed for one night here and it was a nice experience.

  • Liked — Modern and clean. In a quiet area.
  • Disliked — Nothing.

My husband and my parents stayed at the Hotel Castro Real for 2 nights, and really enjoyed our stay. It exemplified the hospitality we saw everywhere in Oviedo. We drove into town from Madrid, and immediately became lost (rainy day, bad map, lousy navigation, etc). When we stopped at a cafe to ask directions, one of the workers (or customers) literally got in his car and led us to the front door of the hotel! When we entered, the staff was very patient with our frazzled selves, and got us parked and in into our rooms. The rooms were small but nicely designed- it's a very modern hotel, and tasteful. The staff gave us a great recommendation for lunch, and gave us directions on getting downtown. The hotel is a an easy 15-20 minute walk from downtown, and the way is lined with restaurants, pastelerias and bars. When we embarked on a day trip into rural Asturias, the staff printed out a google map for us.

Breakfast was very good, with strong coffee. You can easily go out and get good breakfast as well, but the staff was so sweet, they made it easier to stay in. Oh, and the street is very quiet, so we slept like logs. No earplugs needed.

We would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to others.
