This centrally located hotel is not luxurious, charming or stylish. But it is cheap and clean and the people who run it are friendly. The rooms are basic, but functional and come with private bathroom. The shower pressure is good and the wifi signal is strong. I was given a room at the back, looking into the light well and...

Thank you for your opinion. our hotel have not luxuries, but all our rooms have tv (flat screen), wifi (high velocity), private bathroom, and central heating. Remember, you paid 20 € in a twin room (to used like single room) per night, so the luxuries are imposible, if you want luxuries you must pay 4 or 5 times more than...

Central location, just off the main shopping thoroughfare, but no street noise at night. I had interior room that was very quiet. Wide selection of restaurants, cafés, grocery stores,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hostal Alvarez is in operation since 1981, and our experience in the sector dates back to 1967 when the first modest pension Alvarez situated very close to the Hostal Alvarez was founded, but times change and we with them, so today the Hostal Alvarez is fully modernized, and this website is an example of this commitment to new technologies for a better service customer communication and improved quality, without losing the personal treatment that Hostal is provided. Our experience of over 40 years in the industry supports us. The Hostal Alvarez is located in the heart of Oviedo, or more precisely in the center of the capital of the Principality. Its privileged location, opposite the School of Mines and behind the Hotel de la Reconquista, and 100 meters from Uria Street (center par excellence of the city), make it the ideal place from which to meet the noble city Oviedo. Besides enjoying excellent communications, meeting the train station within 5 minutes from the hostel and the bus about 10 thereof, likewise there are several car parks in the area. Our rooms have central services, private bathroom, TV, and free Wi-Fi, plus a familiar and personalized service with the customer, to which must be added at affordable prices for every pocket allowing anyone stay in a privileged part of the city without losing comfort. ... more   less
