The Gran Hotel is located in the beach half of Ribadesella, at the town end of the marine promenade.
Part of the building is the Marquis´ 1900 summer coastal house, and there are some bedrooms in that, which might have more character. Most bedrooms are in the modern annex. These are straightforward rooms with slightly old fashioned furnishings. Fair size, OK, well-lit bathroom (poor quality toiletries), modern television set (CNN). All have balconies that overlook either the sea (you have to pay a premium) or the mountains. On the sea-side you have good views of the bay and the sunset and can go to sleep to the sound of the waves.
Breakfast is a a decent buffet, served in the restaurant overlooking the promenade and bay.
At the moment (June 2008) there are works on the land-side as they are putting in a new lift. I had asked for a quiet room, so they put me on the sea-side without charging the normal extra - which shows some interest in meeting guests´ wishes.
If you do not have exaggerated views based on the star rating then the Ribadesella is fine.
