La Casona de Jovellanos
Ranked #45 of 47 Hotels in Gijon
Reviewed 1 August 2010

Good locationm for the old quarter of Gijon but when you step inside the nightmare begins. A reception desk above a filthy bar, stinking of cigarette smoke. The room and bathroom were filthy with both dirty sheets and towels, the curtains were hanging from the tracks. It was so hot we had to have the windows open but the noise from the bar downstairs kept us awake all night. Having stated that parking was available we arrived to discover that it was a lock up garage two streets away that denied us access to the car without assistance. We were also led to believe that parking was free but in fact they charge 9 Euros per night.
Having booked to stay longer we left after the one night without having breakfast as the dining room looked no cleaner. The 3 stars is totally misleading and is grossly overrated for this hotel.

A large house ideally placed in the middle of the old town, packed with history and antiques. Comfortable en suite rooms. This hotel is definitely not a boutique hotel but has lots of original character and is all the better for it. The location is ideal for the old town of Gijon, the town and the beaches. The Sideria on the ground floor is packed with original features including exposed bedrock feature in the bar which I’m sure had a use in the past but my Spanish wasn’t good enough for the explanation. The tapas were also excellent. This is not a boring chain hotel, drawbacks for some might include no air conditioning, noise from Sideria, creaky floorboards and anything else associated with living in a big very old house. The staff were very friendly and the service efficient. Secure parking is available and note that traffic into the old town is restricted over night. In summary a real taste of Asturias.

A perfect place to stay. Low-key. Tucked away off a windy street, this hotel is wonderful. You are greeted by "Clinton", the little dog that stays around the hotel. Rooms are quite comfortable, and the continental breakfast is just enough to get you going to start your day. Close enough to walk to the center of Gijon. Stayed there twice, and will return on our next visit.
