    The towels seem to have seen better days; it's quite noisy outside downtown at night at weekends.

    Big selection for btreakfast; very friendly and helpful staff; close proximity to the old town and the bus station :)

    No parking on site, public car park at discount rate. This doesn’t constitute the hotel having parking , which cost us nearly more than the room. And as motorcyclists we only used 1 parking bay.

    Good location, very good room and excellent breakfast

    The hotel was nice for the money however the mattress was way too hard for our liking. The bathroom towels could use improvement as they were course and not absorbent

    Location was really good. Decent neighborhood and we felt safe.

    We didn't have a view from our room, which was also a little bit small - but didn't matter to us as we were out most of the time. That said, the room was very clean and tidy, so absolutely fine for a short stay.

    The hotel has a great location right by the marina and beaches, restaurants, shops and old town. We arrived on a Saturday night and there is an amazing atmosphere in Gijon with all the tapas bars and people out walking by the marina and beach. The staff were really friendly and helpful and always happy to answer any questions. The breakfast is simple, but has all you need with bread, cereals, cheese, cold meats, fruit, yoghurts and pastries - we really enjoyed it. The coffee was great too! Gijon is great place for a couple of days visiting! The rooms and hotel generally was also very clean.

    Staying in various hotels in the north of Spain, we have enough experience to judge that hotel Blue Marqués de San Esteban in Gijòn is way too much money for the value. Our trip to Cambados (a very lovely 2 star with cosy room and large bathroom for € 90 incl. wonderful breakfast and parking !), Santiago de la Compostela (a 5 star hotel with pool and spa in the city centre for the same price; with a huge romantic room and large bathroom, incl. great breakfast), La Corogne (a 4 star with swimming pool and spa for the same price with lovely room and bathroom and breakfast included), and now in Santander where we are in the most wonderful (1 star) little luxury boutique hotel for less money including breakfast. Hotel Blue Marqués de San Esteban in Gijòn is outdated, the towels stink and are so old that they fall apart, the room, corridor and breakfast room are depressing and a much better breakfast is expected for a hotel in this price range. We're very, very disappointed !

    The friendly girl at the reception when we arrived. Actually the only highlight at this missable hotel.

    It is a bit of a busy street where the hotel is located, and the windows are not particularly soundproof. When we were there Gijon football team won against Villarreal and managed to stay in the league, so there was not really any sleep for us. Best way to go about it was having a party with them ;-). But the not so sound proof windows will be a bit of a problem, also when there is no football

    We've stayed in this hotel in a similar room 6 years ago, and what once was a very cute, well appointed and serviced 3-star hotel, now seems a bit decadent and lacks of investment - mattress wasn't renewed and you could feel the springs, bath towels were very thin and raided on the sides showing fringed threads, there wasn't a minibar fridge on the door where it should have been, no frames or decor on the stained walls, some lids and fittings that had almost fallen apart, shower complimentary items were the kind of a budget hotel. Breakfast was included but at 6£, the product quality wasn't very good and felt more like a school meal. Slightly disappointing, sadly!

    Most of the staff was efficient, friendly and helpful. It was pretty clean. The location is good and convenient, plus we liked the closed balcony of the room.
