Hotels in Asturias, Spain

Hotel classification in Spain

Paradores

The Spanish parador is the highest level of hotel in Spain. The accommodation is of a very high standard with matching facilities. Parador hotels are often former historic buildings like stately homes, castles or buildings with a strong connection to the past. They are state owned and managed.

Hotels

Hotels in Spain are the same as everywhere else and have a star rating that should reflect the facilities of the hotel in question. Hotels should provide on suite bedrooms, bars and dinning areas, plus other facilities which may include swimming pools, a spa, sports complexes and business facilities. The star rating ranges from one to five.

Pensiones

Pensiones are below a hotel standard, but superior to a Fonda (below). Pensiones should not be called hotels (although they often are). They have their own star classification standard. There is a significant difference between e.g. 2 star pension and two star hotel (the latter being superior).

Fondas

These are similar to boarding houses. They have their own symbol, a blue letter F on a white background. They have a small number of bedrooms (not usually on suite), and are cheap and cheerful.

Refugios

These are Spain's equivalent of hostels.
