    I have no complaints about this place.

    A charming and cozy place right in the heart of Gijon, perfect for a short stay. Centrally located within walking distance from and to ALSA bus station. Lots of nice restaurants, shops and plazas nearby. Warm and helpful staff.

    Very good experience in general. The bedroom was small but good enough for 3 nights, very clean and the bed quite comfortable. They had gluten free products in the breakfast, which is quite difficult to find in Gijon in general.

    People with mobility issues or heavy luggage need to be mindful that there are a few steps at the entrance, up to the lift. Having to leave and pick up the key from reception every time you went out.

    The staff - they gentleman at reception spent time ringing accommodation at my next destination as I can’t speak Spanish. He was very kind and helpful. Staff also spoke excellent english. The location - the hotel is right in the centre part of Gijon, walking distance to the train and bus stations. Gijon is a lovely city. The price - very affordable The people - I found people in Gijon to be very kind and seemed to appreciate my attempt at Spanish (without laughing!) I will return for sure.

    Parking was a bit of a pain, as often with town centre hotels I did receive a discount for the nearest underground park but this still cost ten euros per day.

    Pleasant town centre location, brilliant room with comfortable furnishings and bathroom. Surrounded by a wide variety of restaurants and shops, within 5 minutes walk of the shore.

    • Stayed 2 nights

    When asked, I said no to cleaning and had the DND sign up. But they came in and cleaned up anyway, which was unnecessary. To be even closer to perfect, would have liked a bar fridge to keep a drink or milk.

    Excellent price at €40per night for a twin. Location is very close to the bus station (5min walk) which is what I wanted. Conveniently there is also the town market and a supermarket a minute away. It is near the corner of a large pedestrian street and plaza, but the noise and light are kept out very well by the shutters. You can walk to the port and Cimadevilla very easily. Staff are friendly and can speak basic English. Check in was easy. There is a lift (but didn't use it). The room (201) was extremely comfortable and much larger than expected with a desk and two big windows onto the street. The TV is reasonable size, facing the beds and has a USB port. Wifi worked well in the room. No issues with the shower - shampoo and gel supplied. Bed is comfortable and firm. There's no room temperature control but it was fine with the outside 5-15C. Would gladly stay here again, unless I wanted to cook.

    It felt a bit unsafe that you leave the key and just get it back from reception by saying the room number. I know it happens in other hotels as well but it felt a bit like i could say any room number and enter whatever room.

    Staff was very helpful, and reception is open for extended periods. They were very flexible with check in time and all. Room well cleaned everyday. Heating worked perfectly well.

    The only time I felt welcome in the hotel was when I was leaving. The receptionist I encountered most was in no way warm or friendly and only managed to muster a hint of civility was when I paid and left. There was a younger receptionist who was friendly and pleasant but I only encountered him once. The hotel is not well soundproofed and thus noisy. (you can hear other residents snoring, talking, walking, opening and closing doors, text message alerts, everything, The walls are so thin it's hard to believe someone thought it would work as a hotel. It is also pretty warm (much warmer than outside) although there is a fan on the roof which does seem to cool the room down but needs to be left in if you want to stay cool. I have previously stayed at a four star Hotel in Gijon, the staff were very polite and always treated my with respect, it was a little more expensive but infinitely more pleasant than Hotel Castilla, I would urge anyone to avoid paying over the odds for a stay in Hotel Castilla. There are definitely nicer places to stay in the area and with it's only selling points its location and decent bathroom facilities it's better avoided.

    The hotel is in a central location. Clean and tidy with instant hot water and good bathroom facilities.

    It states that there is car parking nearby but it doesn't tell you where. We parked on the street and then got told that we would get clamped so had to move it. Driving around the area is not easy! There is an underground car park directly in front of the hotel that you should park in denotes by the blue 'P'. Take a ticket and park overnight. Ask reception to give you a slip of paper to state that you stayed at the hotel. Then when you leave the next day go to the ground floor of the car park where the attendant is and give him the paper. It will then only cost you €10 instead of €16.
