fantastic location - recommended
Fantastic location. The team working there is great, believe me, this comes from someone who has worked in the front desk myself. Goes across the team (reception, restaurant, housekeeping), very good staff.
Now the hotel itself is nice but to some degree you notice that they have hard time catching up with maintenance. Looks like they have renovated some things but then some other things are starting to fall apart, it is a mixed feeling. On one hand you have nice wooden furniture and carpet floors in some rooms, high ceiling, more or less fine bathrooms, but then some bits and pieces stick out that simply are falling apart, not critical but it kind of underlines the age of the building. But overall dont let that keep you away, really. Again I am saying bcs I am the first one to look for new hotels usually, however we extended our stay in this one one day more that initially planned.
Food - the dinner was excellent, not gonna elaborate, just was very tasty. The breakfast was ok-ish, considering that in Asturias we have had better ones in a 3 star hotels. I think they could do better if they wanted. Again, not like it was a bad breakfast but simply in comparison of what we experienced in other hotels.
Back to location - this is specially excellent if you want to go to the lakes of Covadonga in your OWN car, because they let you on the road only before 8.30am, otherwise you need to take a bus or taxi. this is one of the closest hotels next to the road entrance.
