    • Great location - expensive for such a small room

      Ok this boasts 3* and that seems about right. Our "double" room was well appointed and modernised, en suite (very ensuite! See later) Lots of electrical outlets and clean. No bottled water always a thing with me but what the hey. Cupboard space and a safe. It's has a small breakfast room which gets busy so's you have to wait maybe. Breakfast is simple with cereals fruit cheese etc - the continental offering as standard but considering the price of the room 95/night pretty limited. Coffee is good. Back in the room - for two it is tight on space. Make sure you get on with your bed partner before booking. We had trouble getting to the shower (not together) but once in it does its job well - careful exiting. Towels are thin but absorbent. The bidet is handy for holding your spongebag and other body scrubbing accoutrements. As I am 6 feet plus fortunately my wife was able to fold me into the room then straightened me out come morning. The hotel is three minutes from the harbour and the tourist info place on the short pier. So a great location. In short it is a compact hotel. And of the five hotels we stayed in on our trip around Spain it was the most expensive and the smallest room on the positive side almost everything in the room was reachable from the bed. So, check prices and sizes before you book. Not good on value - OK but pokey.

    • Fine except for weekend noise

      We shouldve heeded other travelers warnings about weekend nights and the loud partying in the street below. The soundproofing is actually not bad, though even with the windows closed the thump of the music at the bar below us and a background hum of loud chatter could still be made out well past 6am. Earplugs took care of this, but if you dont like to sleep with earplugs, or if they dont work well for you, be aware that you will still hear muted sounds coming from the street on a weekend night. If you are a deep sleeper, youll be fine. The bigger problem for us was that the AC in our room not only didnt work (it was essentially a fan and nothing more), but it blew a faint cigarette smell into our room (and briefly a coffee smell in the morning). Granted, we have sensitive noses. This wouldve been fine if we couldve simply shut the fan off and opened the window to cool the room down. But the raucous noise coming from the street with windows opened was too much. So we shut off the fan, kept the windows closed and were a little too warm. It was not a comfortable night for us. Its a shame because the room was spacious, light-filled, clean and otherwise perfectly fine. The staff were all very personable and helpful, and the location favorable and giving you easy access to the main part of town. Breakfast was OK - there were a variety of choices though they were more budget than the average breakfast experience we had during our time in Spain. The staff will give you a discount ticket for a nearby parking garage - this was very convenient.

    • Little hotel in a great location

      It's fantastically located close to Cimavilla, port and beaches (San Lorenzo is a bit further). There is almost a lack of entrance/reception with one person working there. Although the reception isn't the best presentation of the hotel, the rooms are clean and modern (kind of small). The worst is the painfully slow lift, a challenge to patience so if you can chose, get a room in lower floors. They offer free WiFi, that works perfectly and 24/7 reception. Reception team are all friendly, helpful and really nice. Hotels in this area don't come cheap but there are plenty to choose from. It might be worth it to look other options.

      Great location! Booked a top floor room with small walkout on the roof! It was rainy but great to have all that extra light in the room. Clean and comfortable with a nice staff. Definitely would recommend this hotel!

      Having stayed in Gijon before but not in this hotel this was a lovely find. The staff are so helpful and nothing is too much trouble, and had lots of patience with me attempting to speak Spanish! However their English is very good thankfully! Rooms are of adequate size with all the amenities you need. It does get a little noisy on a Friday night as there is a late bar next door but saying that I am a light sleeper. Would definitely recommend this as it's in with easy reach of the harbour, restaurants and bars.
