“delightful hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2011

Family of four stayed here for 1 night as a transit stop before catching ferry back to saint nazaire.
Lovely art deco style hotel next to the casino in a very central part of town. We used the carpark 2 minutes walk from the hotel and received a voucher from the hotel for reduced carpark costs.
All staff at the hotel we found to be extremely friendly,polite and helpful.
We booked a suite - it was very spacious, the beds were very comfortable with quality cotton sheets,the room and all of the hotel was spotlessly clean.
Buffet breakfast was of very good quality, great coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice.
The view from our room was not all that interesting- but we had not specified a room with a view when we made our booking !
All in all an excellent hotel and amazing value for money..

Excellent hotel. Comfortable and clean, modern interior, friendly staff, central but quiet. All these in a four-star hotel at a very low price. In comparison, some of my colleagues stayed at a hotel that charged twice, and were full of complaints about it.

Compared to other places we stayed in northern Spain this was the best value of all. Rooms & bath were large, clean, modern, and well-furnished. Convenient (paid) parking is nearby as well as many restaurants, cafes, and the shoreline. They advertise 5-star sized rooms at 4-star price and I agree. Add free WiFi as well as 2 house PCs for guests to use and it's a good package. Breakfast offers 3 pricing choices (recently increased prices) but are about the same as anywhere else.

We stayed in one of their suites for two nights. It was brilliant. We loved every minute of it. Five minutes walk from the most fantastic beach. Recommend highly. Staff so kind and helpful. Something from days gone by.

This artdeco hotel offers only the best. Service is excellent, friendly, effective. Rooms and bathroom are so spacious and nice, way above the average.We even had a balcony overlooking the town. Continental breakfast excellent, situation couldn't be better. Main shopping area around the corner, beach at walking distance.It is the best hotel in its price range. We loved it.

Room Tip: Ask for a kingsize bed.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2011

stayed for two nights . arrived lateish to be met by a grumpy old man who brusquely directed me to the nearby underground carpark which ended up costing about 40euros.
Up then to nice room which turned out to be too hot.View from room was a grey wall.Alot of noise from casino nextdoor.Room big enough.
Hotel is quite far from beach but central to park bars etc..Gijon is a lovely place with a nice mix of restos and bars and galleries.
The breakfast is very nice in the Spanish style and the lady who works there could teach the rest of the staff that a pleasant manner and a smile cost nothing and generally make life more agreeable.
You get a free drink at the casino next door...which is nice!!
All in all a nice enough hotel but next time in this lovely city i will stay nearer the beach in a more friendly place..
took some pics and a vid that i may upload later
