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.
