Greetings,
Our accommodation is in a lovely old building and the hostel is on two levels. The ceilings are 11ft, the double doors to our room are 9ft high. The whole floor is tastefully done in period furniture with tiled floors, carpet runner down hallway stained glass and leadlight windows. The only downside is the noise. Our room overlooks …

Today we took the hour train ride to the mountain of Montserrat. We then took a cable car to the mountain summit where there is a monastery. There are currently 80 Byzantine monks who serve and work at the monastery. This monastery is home to Our Lady of Montserrat, which is a 12th century Romanesque carving. According to the legend the Virgin was …

Happy Birthday to Nick

Today was Nick's birthday. We spent the day walking around Barcelona and visiting some of the tourist sites. We are staying in a really cute little hotel and taking it easy.
We visited the Sagrada Familia, a church that will rival Notre Dame once it actually gets finished around 2020.
We also saw several of Antoni Gaudi's builds which look look like something you would see in Disneyland.

Barca, you wild thing.

Earlier I had met another guy from Sydney, a new solo traveler who had similar experiences and life realizations that I did, so we got each other's information and planned to meet in Pamplona for the running of the bulls. After a nice chat, a group of 80 of us started to walk to the beach.
I have never been part of something so obnoxious in my life. It was fantastic.

... saw the inside. It was absolutely incredible. Although I wasn’t a huge fan
of the outside, the inside was so stunning. The ceilings were so high and had a
quality that is so unique to the cathedral. I was so thankful we got to
experience it, and it proved to be one of my favorite parts of our trip. The park was the perfect cherry on the cake
for our crazy day and the view it had was spectacular. Gaudi’s park was
inspired by Hanzel and Grettle and ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hostal Girona Barcelona

    OK for the price

    from

    Set a little off the beaten track, we had a room with a balcony facing the enclosed back of the hostal. Apart from the usual thin walls common to most Spanish hostals we've stayed in, this made for a reasonably quiet night. The room was clean and the air-con worked well. One rather large cockroach spotted scuttling from the bathroom, other than that a good base for exploring the city.

    Good place

    from

    My sister and I stayed in this place on december 20 2004. As we arrived from Girona to the Saint Joan Point by ryanair buses we didnt have any problem to find the place just walking 5 minutes. The place is calm and quiet inside and outside. You can walk to the hostal entered night without any problem and you have a subway station within 3 blocks. The rooms are huge, you have a lot of space (more than in other hostal you have visited). When you dont have a bathroom into the room, that is not a problem because the shared bathrooms are really clean. the attention is good too. The price is not as cheaper as other hostal but believe me this is more than a hostal. The beds and towls are clean too so you can sleep really good and be ready the next day to visit the exciting Barcelona city.

    Good and bad memories...

    from

    I stayed 4 nights at this little hostal in July 2004. As some have posted, there are good and bad points about this hostal. On the plus side, the location is fantastic...I was alone and felt safe walking back at night from the metro or Plaza Cataluyna (both just a few minutes away). It was very clean and tidy, including the shared bathroom/shower facilities. I had a single with balcony which, although tiny, felt a little less stifling.

    The only major downside was the noise - walls are super-thin (which some guests didn't notice or seem to care about, particularly very late at night). However, for the price its a good, basic choice.

    Had a great stay

    from

    My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay in this beautiful building. It is ideally situated in a quiet street very near the Plaza Catalunya. The room was very bright and comfortable with air conditioning and a balcony. The staff were all very nice and some went out of their way to help us with directions, calling taxi's etc. There is a very easy-going atmosphere in the hotel and for the price range it offers excellent value.

    I will definitely stay there again when I next return to Barcelona and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for budget accomodation in there.

    Balcony rooms are best!

    from

    For budget accomodation in an expensive city this was excellent value. Spent out first night in an airless interior room, but we'd booked balcony rooms so after a small complaint we were moved into an airy room on the back of the building with a huge balcony. Our advice pay the 6 euros extra and get one of the much better balcony rooms. The Girona is a fabulous old building, the staff/owners are helpful in the brusque Catalan fashion and the rooms are basic. That said, we'd go back as the VFM factor is excellent.

    You get what you pay for...

    from

    Well, I suppose I'll separate this review into postives and negatives.

    Pleasant

    from

    we stayed at the hostal girona from 19 to 23 jan 2004 and it was very pleasant. Not sure how it would be in the heat of summer though!

    Excellent location 5 mins walk from the ryanair bus stop and also from placa catalunya. Our room had an o.k. shower, balcony and beautiful tiled floor. It was an interesting building with spectacular entrance hall. Very reasonably priced, would certainly recommend it for anyone on a budget trip to Barcelona.

    Highly recommended (except for the shower!)

    from

    Two previous posters have voiced differing opinions & I can see where they were both coming from.

    What's the definition of oasis?

    from

    We must have a different interpretation of "oasis" - we expected a quiet place to refresh in a hot city after reading your review. What we found was a dark, dismal, airless hostal - our room did not even open out into fresh air - the courtyard it overlooked had a roof on. The "en suite" was a loo in a cupboard without a ceiling partition from the room and the shower room had no door to the room - good job we know each other well! The staff were not particularly friendly and were not available when we wanted to check out - luckily we had arranged to leave our bags to collect later so we could pay then. However, it was very centrally located and the price was right. It was clean and OK for one night but certainly not an oasis.

    A Quiet Convenient Corner

    from

    Hostal Girona was an Oasis of tranquility, all the more surprising since it is located just a few yards from the Ramblas and the central Plaza Catalunya. The staff are friendly, efficient and very helpful with advice about Barcelona and beyond. There was always someone in the lobby nomatter what time I returned. The room was basic but clean and tidy. It's the best place I have stayed in Barcelona for that sort of money.
