Bottom Line

Ayre Hotel Oviedo is a one-of-a-kind four-pearl property that was converted from a soccer stadium into a bold and stylish hotel. Prices are low for what you get in the spacious rooms: modern furniture, chromotherapy headboards, free Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs -- but expect to pay extra for breakfast, garage parking, and access to the whirlpool and sauna in the spa. El Bistro restaurant serves homestyle lunch and dinner while the chic bar area attracts locals and guests for cocktails. There are six event rooms and a full business center. The location above a mall with restaurants is a nice perk, but expect a 20-minute walk to the city center of Oviedo.

Oyster Hotel Review

Ayre Hotel Oviedo

Scene

Space age decor

The exterior of Ayre Hotel Oviedo resembles an artistic spaceship and this extends into the lobby. The structure was originally built as a soccer stadium, which explains its enormity and arched white lines that intersect at sharp angles. The lobby is made of gleaming white marble. Silver columns draw the eye up towards tiered recessed ceilings with royal blue accents. White modular furniture is placed on gray shag rugs. Oversize chairs shaped like drama masks are an unexpected touch. Potted topiaries warm up the space. The hotel largely attracts couples and business travelers who have meetings in the event spaces.

Location

Located in a residential neighborhood, about 20 minutes by foot from the city center

Ayre Hotel Oviedo would be an oddity in most cities and it definitely sticks out (in a good way) in its calm and quiet residential neighborhood made up of mostly apartment buildings. There's a restaurant nearby and easy access to the A66 Highway. The University of Oviedo is less than a 10 minute drive from the property. The hotel was built directly over a shopping mall which is home to numerous shops and restaurants. Expect a 20-minute walk to get to Oviedo's city center.

Rooms

Rooms are modern and spacious.

There are 135 rooms and 20 suites inside the expansive Ayre Hotel Oviedo. Rooms are so large that some have complained they feel a little empty. Each features chic and minimalist decor with hardwood floors, white Lucite furniture, and chromotherapy headboards. Watch out for twin beds pushed together to make a double bed. In-room safes are large enough to stash a laptop and flat-screen TVs are mounted to the walls. An otherwise empty mini-fridge holds free bottled water. Cavernous bathrooms include double sinks and some have bathtubs. Views of Oviedo's hillsides are best from the higher floors.

Features

Features include a small spa, fitness center, and restaurant.

The best feature at Ayre Hotel Oviedo is the small spa, though it costs extra to use it. The spa's whirlpool faces a full window overlooking the city. There's also a steam room and sauna, plus a few massage beds that need to be booked in advance. The cardio equipment is free to use in the fitness center. There's a weight bench and dumbbells, but no strength-training machines. Breakfast is provided for a fee. El Bistro serves good quality Spanish food for lunch and dinner and there's a chic bar and lobby for cocktails and wine throughout the day. The hotel has a full business center and six event rooms for conferences or meetings.
