NH Collection Palacio de Avilés5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I stay 2 nights for business . This hotel is located in the pedestrain area and central to visit the small city center. Godd bar and restaurants around. Perfect reception, quiet room in the new part of the building and excellent breakfest. Personnel is really friendly and check out efficient. Rooms are perfect, maybe air conditoinning system should be quieter but all you need in the room and nice TV. beds are comfortable. Nothing to say, really a good place to stay if you ravle there.
The NH Palacio Hotel in Avilés blends in nicely with its surroundings. Located on the city's main square opposite the town hall – or a building that looks surprisingly municipal – it gives nothing away from the outside. But once through the glass sliding doors all is revealed: this is a classy hotel offering a mix of grandiosity and modernity depending on where you are in the building. There is, for example, what might be called 'the old part' of the hotel, characterised by the grand staircase leading up to the hotel restaurant, which itself is rather grand in appearance with its high ceilings. Then, if you pass by the staircase and walk towards the elevators, the hotel takes on a more modern but nonetheless grand appearance. But let's start from the beginning: the check-in. It's always nice when checking into a hotel is a simple and straightforward process and that was the case here at the Palacio. Within minutes I was making my way past the aforementioned grand staircase leading to the hotel restaurant and trudging on towards a left turn and the elevator, which I took to the second floor and then weaved my way around the corridor, past a modern galleried area to room 209 on my right. The room followed a tried and tested layout: bathroom on the left, wardrobes on the right, then a long desk above which there was a flatscreen television facing the rather grand double bed with its six pillows and ornate headboard. Everything worked. The bathroom sported two wash basins and there was a pleasant shower and (mark of a good hotel, perhaps) a bidet, which I never used, but admired from a distance. There was a safe in the wardrobe. What I really liked about the hotel room (and, indeed, the entire hotel) was the doors. They were made of a rich wood and were heavy and dependable. I love hotels with wall-mounted sockets for the key cards. Knowing that the room simply won't work without inserting one's keycard into the slot is reassuring for one good reason: it means I'm not going to lose my keycard. It also saves on electricity as the room is plunged into darkness the moment the card is withdrawn. Unusually, I got a good night's sleep from day one and every morning a refreshing shower prepared me for breakfast on the ground floor. The breakfast room was bright and airy and offered everything one needs for the most important meal of the day: hot beverages, bread, pastries, cooked meats, fresh fruit, yoghurts, you name it. I tried the hotel restaurant on my third and final night. It was alright, but I could have done with larger portion sizes having eaten the night before at a restaurant across the road, which boasted plenty of meat and large chunks of bread, they even provided a grill on which customers could cook their own meat. And let's not forget the 'local brew' – cider – served in the same way street sellers in India serve coffee (by pouring it from a great height into a cup). Travelling can be a stressful affair and every now and then I must admit that I, like everybody else, get things wrong, things which only have an adverse effect on myself, like spending two weeks staring at a boarding pass and somehow thinking that 1030hrs was at night and not in the morning. I convinced myself that I was flying out of Avilés at around 1030pm and hadn't for one moment considered that it might be 1030am, bearing in mind that the airlines rely upon the 24-hour clock. I was happily sending emails to people saying I needed picking up at around 8pm in the evening when really I should have been saying I needed a lift in the morning. How all this came about, I don't know, but I didn't finally twig until it was too late. I was sitting at the desk in the hotel room looking at the boarding pass and suddenly I got it. I started to panic. How, I wondered, could I resolve this problem? There were no flights out of Aviles, not after mine had departed, and I needed to be back home so I had to get a flight from somewhere. I decided to book a plane out of Bilbao and quickly purchased a one-way ticket online. But how do I get to Bilbao? I slung everything into a suitcase, didn't bother shaving and headed down to reception in a flustered state. Fortunately for me there was Anabel and Konchy, both of whom knew exactly how to resolve the problem and, in the process, calm me down as everything around me seemed to be going wrong. I was advised to take the 1345 bus from Oviedo to Bilbao, which would take three hours, and then find my way by cab to the airport and my flight home. It all went very smoothly. Anabel even wrote out (in Spanish) instructions to the man behind the desk at the bus station – everything went smoothly and I got home safely. So, in addition to being a great hotel, the NH Palacio employs great people too. Should I ever find myself in Avilés, I'll be rebooking this amazing place. Avilés, by the way, is a lovely place. It's a small but perfectly formed city in a picturesque region known as 'green Spain'. And it's only 90 minutes from London.
Went for business from Monday - Friday. Ate at the restaurant one night for dinner and it was the best Hotel dining experience I ever had. The break buffet also offered many great choices. The location was perfect right in the center of town and was an easy walk to all the shops and restaurants.
A very beautiful hotel in the center of the town located in a former palace. The staff is very friendly, speaking good English. The room I had was in the "old" part of the building and it had everything you would need and more (exceeding my expectations). The restaurant serves great food and the breakfast is also great, Certainly a place one can recommend.
I stayed in the hotel for 3 days and it and it is very good .. enjoyed my stay. The location of the hot3l is good and staff were very friendly.. overall good stay.. Wil recemond this hotel for a nice relaxed stay
I was in town on business. My host put me up, here. The entire experience was delightful. The front desk team was quite pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was ample and tasty. My room was extremely comfortable. The bed was wonderful. I have nothing but high praise for this hotel!
Beautiful location in an ancient palace located in the middle of the old town. Very quiet, nice rooms and a good service. I was there for a buisiness trip but can recommend it also for a private jouney.
the hotel is very nice hotel, the room is quiet spacious and there's a lot of luxury. The bed was big enough and comfortable. At breakfast, there's a lot of choise. The bathroom is spacious and comfortable and very clean;
Arrived in carpark, took lift down to reception and checked in. No help offered with luggage and pointed vaguely in direction of lifts. Wedding party in full swing with deafening music meant that I was unable to enjoy any of the hotel's facilities. Woken by drunken guests singing and chanting at 4 a.m..Corporate policy to change sheets every 3 days for 'environmental' reasons, i.e. it saves them money. Asked for ours to be changed (if I'm paying for a 5 star hotel I expect 5 star treatment) which was done by the surliest person I have ever encountered in a hotel. Breakfast OK. Room clean and spacious but overall I have to wonder how this hotel could possibly have been awarded 5 stars, compared to other establishments of similar status it falls very short.
I was given one of my favorite rooms and the staff was very helpful and kind. It made the "away from home" very tolerable. I enjoyed the coffee with steamed milk prepared for me every morning often with a repeat cup. There was plenty of bottled water in the room and a robe and sleepers for my use. I don't want another hotel in Aviles.
