“A gem”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

This hotel is a 30 minute stroll through gardens and the beach to the centre of a city unspoiled by tourists.
I do not take liquids on flights, therefore, to have complimentary dental and shaving material as standard in the rooms, is wonderful. The rooms are spacious and the hotel is quiet. Breakfast is plentiful with a choice of eggs, excellent bacon and a full continental breakfast with wonderful Spanish bread.

Spent a Friday/Saturday night here at the beginning of December.
Was able to walk everywhere from the old part of Gijon, Cimavilla, to the stadium (Las Palmas was in town) just down the street.
Comfortable, clean room, great breakfast buffet, and an inviting lobby with large windows overlooking the park across the street. Parking available in the garage located below the hotel.
This hotel was a recommendation from a friend of mine who lives in Gijon, and I would recommend it to anyone considering a visit to Gijon.

Reviewed 13 August 2012

We stayed in this hotel for a week. They never mentioned that the air conditioner would only work from 4pm until 12 midnight.
I found this to be quite disrespectful. Who want's to sleep without the air conditioner in the middle of summer. My children and I would wake up all sweaty in the mornings. Also, who wants to go on vacation and have to sleep with their windows open and have to hear the city noise.
I would also like to mention that the hotel is completely outdated. All of the furniture in the rooms, lobby, and restaurant are in dire need of replacement.

The hotel is very nice and the staff is friendly. The room is also nice and has the usual amenities of the Tryp hotel chain. It is not located in the city center, but it is a nice area, with a large park just in front. The soccer stadium is only 200 m away. My only criticism concerns extras, which are charged to high prices. I paid 63 euros for the room and the breakfast was 14 euros. Same for the internet: they offered approx. 10 euros/hour or 20 euros/day for wifi connection. I did not use the covered parking (I parked in the street) but there is also a fee for that.

We stayed for two nights at this hotel in February. We were warmly greeted by the hotel reception staff. We booked a tryp bedroom. We had a lovely view of the park across the road. The beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean. We had a good size bathroom with a bath.
We opted for the bed and breakfast package and the breakfast was good, it was a buffett. Very helpful wait staff who bought us lovely hot coffee. There was plenty of different food to chose from, cereals, yoghurt, cooked breakfast, bread, toast, cake etc, all very good.
The hotel is in a good location, only a couple of minutes walk to the beach, shops, cafes etc. It is in a lovely area with the park just across the road.
We enjoyed staying at this hotel so much we have booked again for May and we are looking forward to our return visit.

Tryp Rey Pelayo is probably the best option in town. Official rates are quite high, but you can get a low rate in their website almost always. We have been there two times and we will stop there again if we visit Gijon in the future.

Roms are very comfortably and big, with nice furniture and big bathrooms, perfectly equiped. The Lobby and the Cafeteria are also comfortable and nice and the staff is always very kind and polite. But the best thing in this hotels is its impressive breakfast. It is usually included in room rates, but if you do not have it, book it eithout a doubt. It is the best breakfast i have tried in a Spanish hotel: regional cheeses, anchovies, a lot of differents pastries, cakes and puddings, salads, sandwiches, eggs, bacon, sausages, beans, fruits, regional desserts, Spanish omelette, fresh fruit juices, wine, local cider and also champagne.

It is not in the heart of the city, but it is in front of the park in a quiet area where you can find several cafes and tea tooms, 100 m. away from the stadium and at a walk distance (2 minutes) from the beach and a shopping and dining area (with lots of sidrerias, the local restaurants, italian restaurants and a mall). Downtown is 15 minutes away walking. A great place.
