The cultural city of Oviedo, capital of Asturias, is known for its UNESCO World Heritage monuments and traditional cider bars. The city makes for a great location for a budget break and is filled with a good range of budget hotels and guesthouses. Here’s our pick of some of our favourites.

1. Hotel Santa Cruz

It’s located right in the centre of the city, close to many restaurants, shops and cafés. With just 12 rooms, it is intimate and offers a very personalised service. Rooms are simple, but spacious and tastefully decorated with tiled floors and dark-wood furniture. It also has free Wi-Fi, satellite TV and private bathrooms.

The two-star Hotel Fuente de la Plata lies in the suburbs to the west of central Oviedo. It may not be close to the central sights, but it is very close to bus and train stations for easy access to and from the city. It’s also very close to the Campo de Futbol del Real Oviedo CF, in case you want to catch a game. It’s a great option for those walking the Camino del Norte route to Santiago de Compostela, too, as it’s located just a five-minute walk from the trail. Rooms are clean and functional, decorated in warming tones of reds, yellows and oranges. There’s also a small café for breakfasts or afternoon coffee, and a cosy restaurant serving good quality meals.
