One could ask no more of the host and his family's care of us during our stay. The hotel is clean and our room though bijou was adequate and quieter at the back of the hotel away from the adjoining main road. Parking is available though limited with overflow facility at nearby premises. There are local restaurants within a short...

We were not impressed with the choice of hotels in Cangas de Onis so began to look slightly outside the city center. We picked this one. A very friendly, family run hotel that is about a 10 minute drive out of town. Clean, reasonably quiet, with an excellent breakfast. Highly recommended.

Spent a week traveling Northern Spain and this hotel was the best I stayed at. Good value for your money, great service, clean and cute room and super yummy breakfast with freshly baked cake and omelette cooked according to your request. This place is worth staying at if you're in the area.

We spent two nights here while visiting the Picos. The hotel is a beautiful stone building with a nice terrace. It is right on the road, so during the day there is some traffic noise but it was quiet at night. The owner was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was about the best we'd had in Spain. The hotel...

If you are looking for a beautiful, cosy and welcoming place to stay, this is it. Emilio and his parents go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The double bed was firm and comfortable. The room had a lovely, old wordly feel with a skylight in the bathroom. My only gripe was the thin...

we stayed for 7 nights in mid September 2015 and toured the Picos de Europa using this small hotel as a base. Absolutely the best choice we have ever made. Very pleasant, welcoming and helpful hosts; nothing too much trouble. Lovely breakfast, clean and tidy rooms what more could you expect. We are visiting the Dolomites in June but hope...

We stayed in La Balsa for three nights in late September. The location is perfect; the hotel is a perfect base for visits to Covadonga as well as Poncebos and Cain whereas Soto de Cangas is not quite as busy as Cangas de Onis itself (which we loved as we were looking for a more quiet stay). This does however...

My son and I stayed for one night near the end of July. I have to compliment the service. They are very switched on when it comes to looking after their customers. The room was nice. The breakfast was great. With them nothing is a problem. I would recommend to anyone!! Well done.
