Hostal La Serna
Ranked #2 of 8 Potes B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 August 2013

We spent 3 nights in the family room "modo familiar" upstairs. It is actually 2 separate bedrooms connected by a tiny foyer which share a bathroom. The rooms are small and simple but clean and adequate. The adults room has a beautiful view of the mountains. The other bedroom faces the interior. The town and surrounding area are so gorgeous that you won't be spending much time in your room. It is like being in a Spanish version of the Alps.

There is some noise from the cafes in the street below the adults room, but it dies down about 12:30 am or so, which is just about the time one goes to bed in Spain, where one eats dinner starting between 9 and 10pm. The location is great- right on a plaza with La Serna restaurant and another good one next door, both with outdoor tables with beautiful mountain views and very reasonable menus del dia at about 11.50 Euros. There is a supermarket a few doors down and everything in town is easy walking distance.

Lucy, the owner and her daughter Alba are extremely nice and helpful. Alba's friend Cecilia babysat for our daughters one day while we went canoeing. She speaks English and was great with the girls.

As in other parts of Spain, it is hard to get anything for breakfast before 9am since people eat dinner and go to bed so late. The town has stunning mountain views and the funicular and great mountain hiking at Fuente De are only a 20 minute drive away, as is Covadonga, the spectacularly situated monastery. The narrow, curvy riverside road through the mountains to reach Potes, Desfiladero de la Hermida, is spectacular as well. Cangas de Onis and its medieval bridge are also beautiful and worth a stop.

Reviewed 4 July 2012

I spent a while scouring the internet for cheap places to stay in Potes, and was worried because there were no hostels. The only thing I could find was this 'Hostal'. I couldn't have been more pleased.

It's tucked away next to the La Serna restaurant (very good too, I might add), and initially feels a little creepy as you ascend the dark, creeky wooden staircase. But upstairs it's warm and homely, and the room I had was very comfortable and clean, with a big private bathroom. All for just 25 Euros - a touch above what you'd pay for a hostel dorm bed. I loved it so much I stayed three days, enjoying the views of the mountains from the window and the pleasant, friendly staff and their delicious, cheap food! (11.50 Euros for three courses with wine - can't go wrong!)

Just wish breakfast was included.
