The Ayre hotel Oviedo is located in the Oviedo’s Congress Palace, designed by the architect Santiago Calatrava.
"A Hotel inside the Conference Centre"
Located inside an enormous modernist building designed by Calatrava, where the conference centre is. The staff were highly professional and helpful, the service was excellent. The breakfast buffet was well supplied and varied. The rooms are wide and quite minimalist, with few furniture. The bathrooms were quite ample with both shower and bath. An excellent option if you're staying in Oviedo for a conference.
"Amazing hotel!!! A must go!"
This hotel is incredible. The outside is amazing. Try to see some photos to know what i mean. The rooms are like suspended in the wings of the hotel The room was fantastic. Wooden floor and walls. Spacious and luxurious. The bed great. The windows from wall to wall. One of the best hotels i have ever been. The 4 bottles of water in the fridge where a gift from the management...
We decided to treat ourselves on our last night in Asturias to a suite at this hotel. We are big fans of Santiago Calatrava after seeing his buildings in Valencia, so were interested in seeing what he had done here. It’s a very striking, imposing building and inside is very spacious with lots of quirky touches, like chairs in the shape of heads which were surprisingly comfortable. Our suite 149 was very big with a superking size bed, soft pillows, dressing gowns and slippers and a mini bar just containing free water and lots of buttons everywhere that do different things, you just have to find out what! Even the shower was pretty sci-fi looking. The location and views aren’t great, you are off the main drag and surrounded by tower blocks with mountains in the distance. Wifi was very weak here, it’s one of those hotels were you can pay extra to have very fast Wifi, but it seems to come at the expense of the normal Wifi. My partner had breakfast here which at €11 was great value with lots of choice. You have to pay for parking here, either by meter outside max. 2 hours at a time for a couple of euros or €13 a day to park in their underground parking, although we did notice that some cars parked overnight in the ‘loading only’ area with impunity. It’s a very stylish hotel and not style over substance by any means, personally I would rather stay somewhere more central but it’s great to stay here for one night just to have a nose around. Also for the price of this suite I would have liked to have had tea and coffee making equipment in the room, and more in the mini bar than just water, so you don't have to order things over the phone.
"Bizarre Building. Helpful Staff"
This proved to be very good value for us for a Four Star hotel although it is a bit of a walk into the centre. The building is bizarre and also houses a shopping centre and conference hall. Shame there was no kettle in room. Staff extremely helpful. Maria sorted the wifi for me and Jorge answered my wife's many questions!
A very modern hotel which is visually stunning however not so good functionally. Located 20 mins walk away from the centre which was just a little inconvenient for us. Room disappointing. Shower leaked on to floor .Many previous reviews mention same.Lots of fiddly annoying things.Toilet roll holder loose.Window difficult to open. Internet very annoying.Constant re entering of password really irritated us. Breakfast very good. Service poor.Refused drinks in hotel after 11.30.pm.Staff in bar were rude. Overworked or under motivated ' No facility to make tea/coffee in bedroom.Requested a kettle but "none available.Will put you on the list " they said.No kettle became available. We had laundry done and were charged 50%surcharge to have it back the same day. Even though we gave it in before breakfast. The charge was dropped when we complained. We just want it right first time.The ma n on reception was very rude saying it was only a few euros so what was the problem in paying. He apologised for his attitude afterwards. We had a very early flight and left hotel at 5 am. Hotel could not even offer us a bowl of cereal. How hard would it be to leave out a packet of cereal or a hard boiled egg or a bit of fruit ' I have stayed in many small establishments where we have had good breakfasts on early departures. Would not return to this hotel on next visit to Oviedo.
