“I'm Cheap but Not THIS Cheap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2013

Oy vey! Chalk this one up to my last minute reservation. The only cheap place available was La Asturiana. The location is actually not awful and the rooms should have been surprisingly quiet (more on this). But, this is easily the sketchiest (for non-English speakers, sketchy = not good) hotel I have stayed at in a long time. Even the broke-[--] college version of me would have found it terrifying.

The entry was delightful giving off an aura of high hope. Alas, the rooms are tiny (think jail cell-esque) bathed in a harsh glow of buzzing fluorescent lights. There were unidentifiable bits of debris in the bed, the soap comes out of a bottle that has been sitting in the shower, and the wifi signal was non-existence other than in the hallway. The manager spoke no English (not a problem in my book) and hosted a rocking party later that night (a problem in my book). Worse yet, the walls are so thin, the sound of a couple next door getting the groove on woke me up at 3 am. This was after 1.5 ambien which should have knocked me out. I left the keys on the desk in the morning and promptly never looked back. Sure, I could have saved 3.5 euros by leaving my luggage there rather than checking it in at the train station but the odds of its smooth retrieval later on that day were slim to none. What a mess!

If you have a job or receive a reliable source of income, do yourself a favor and spend a little more somewhere else. Not being able to sleep sort of defeats the whole purpose of a hotel stay.
