Classic five star elegance in central Oviedo, Cantabria and Asturias

Oviedo | Ref: HOVI1 | Bedrooms: 142

...

Oviedo’s most emblematic hotel, and renowned as one of the finest in northern Spain, this is the place to stay in the city, and is often frequented by visiting celebrities and Spanish royalty.

Well placed for the historic quarter, the shopping district and the famous Campoamor Theatre as well as the elegant Parque San Francisco, the hotel boasts over 300 years’ history and is listed as a National Monument. Its delightful baroque façade gives onto a cavernous hall and two spectacular courtyards. There’s a chapel designed by architect Ventura Rodríguez and original works by leading Asturian artists.

The hotel’s rooms are all outward-facing, light and spacious and are decorated in keeping with the architecture, in a traditional style. There are two restaurants on site offering fine dining and the buffet breakfast is truly outstanding.

The hotel comes into its own every year at the end of October, with the presentation of the Prince of Asturias Prizes, Spain’s most important honours ceremony, when the hotel is embellished for its most prestigious guests: the winners.
