Occupying an 18th-century hospice that's emblazoned with a huge stone coat of arms, the luxurious Reconquista is by far the most distinguished hotel in Oviedo. The wide lobby, encircled by Doric pillars and an oak balcony, is decked out with velvet upholstery and 18th-century paintings. One wing's guest rooms are large and modern, with comfortable beds and large armchairs, while the other wing has rooms decorated in traditional opulence. It's a good idea to ask for a room
facing over the wide interior patio, as rooms on the road can be a little noisy.
