I booked into the Europa as a last minute stop on our campervan tour after realising we were going to want a decent bed and a shower after mountain climbing all day. When you arrive if you're booked into one of the annexe rooms there is no signage or direction to get your keys from the main hotel building down the street. I phoned the number I had and attempted in broken Spanish to explain we couldn't find reception. I was hung up on several times after just being told the hotel was full. Despite giving booking numbers. Only after seeing other guests and asking them was I able to find reception. The receptions seemed almost smug that I was soaking wet from walking around their building in the rain. The room is clean-ish, tiny and hasn't been updated for many years. But we expected this. We didn't expect the noisy plumbing, that wakes you when any toilet in the building flushes or the freight train track 50 meters from the property that starts sounding loud train horns from 5:30am.
We only knew about the train from a distance as we abandoned the room at 1 to drive and stay in the canpervan after using the room for a shower then the same in the morning before returning the keys.
Convenient, comfy but no lift

Convenient hotel to find plus it's on the Camino route. We had a nice room in the new part of the hostel with wooden beams etc - mostly comfy but only a bolster rather than pillows, which didn't really work for us. Also, we were on the third floor and with no lift, that was a lot of carrying stuff up and down. Considering the location is quiet, the night was fairly noisy - masses of farm dogs barking at dawn, plus hooting freight train at 8am. Don't bother with the bar next door - walk down to Parilla La Veguca 5 mins away for excellent Asturian cider and great food with really friendly staff. Otherwise, a good stop off point.
Ideal for a base while moving around Northern Spain

we visited Asturias a few Years ago..This hotel was perfect for our needs! My Husband and I and four children, We wanted to visit Asturias/Cantabria during 6 Days, the locatcion allowed us to enjoy our excurscions , then enjoy wonderful accomodation to recuperate ready for the next day! The hotel is on the main road , Making it easy to find . Our rooms were towards the back of the hotel, recently refurbished .We slept like logs. The cafeteria for breakfast was Spotlessly Clean..as was the Cider House in the evenings the Bbq was excellent , the homemade croquettes were voted the best ever by the kids.. a homely atmosphere after our long day. The Village of Llanes and surrounding areas is beautiful . We do hope to go back again!Try the local cider and cheese !
Perfect highway hotel near a nice town

We stumbled upon this place on our way to exploring the Picos de Europa. It made a very good sleeping point for one night. Nothing too fancy about the rooms, but adequate. Llanes itself is quite a charming little town.
