IMPORTANT NOTE CONCERNING THE SERVICES WE OFFER

    Although the Hotel is centrally located and most of our rooms have 5* measures and comfort, with Free high-speed Wi-Fi access to the Internet throughout the premises and computers available for guests to use free of charge, our rates are highly adjusted. We therefore have no bell-boy service (although we do help our elderly or impeded guests with their luggage) and Room Service is available only for Breakfast services, in addition to which beds are uncovered in advance only for guests with booked reservations.
    We provide all guests with abundant and highly useful touristic information, by means of our exclusive Map-guide of Gijón Restaurants and our Guide to Tourism and Gastronomy in Asturias, a book which is edited by the Hotel; the quality of its design, images and information is sure to be a pleasant surprise and come in handy in organizing excursions throughout the renowned Asturian Natural Paradise. We also offer another, reduced Guide to Asturian Gastronomy, featuring a list of 50 Recommended establishments.
    Guests are offered a free welcome drink at the Casino of Asturias (located in our very same building) and our check-out times are very flexible.
    With regard to the decoration of the rooms, the pictures are a true reflection of our classical style, which may not please everyone, so we recommend checking the aesthetics to avoid disappointments. Although the amplitude of our rooms by far exceeds the average size of rooms of hotels in Gijón.
    All rooms have a minibar with: mineral and sparkling water (0.75 litre bottles), Mahou 5* beer and Coca Cola, each costing € 2,00, including VAT.
    The interior measurements of the two lifts are: 1 by 1 meter, and the other 0.8 by 1.05 meters. The time it takes to go from ground to tenth floor (without stops) is 45".
    We continue to use the traditional key system with the card attached for the light switch, because although it may seem somewhat more uncomfortable, for your safety, it grants us greater control over the access to rooms. A second key can be provided if needed.
    We also try to be kind to the utmost to make sure our guests will return to our hotel whenever in Gijón.
