Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ciutat de Girona
Excellent location but otherwise average.
We booked this hotel having read the excellent reviews but we were rather disappointed. The best feature of the hotel is its excellent location in the city centre. It is a stone's throw from the fashionable shops and restaurants and just a few minutes from the Cathedral. Everything you might want is within easy walking distance, which is certainly a big advantage if you are staggering home at night after a heavy meal. However, the hotel rooms have no balconies and views only of walls; and there is no terrace or other outside space for relaxing. The hotel has no carpark and finding a parking space in the street often takes ages and entails quite a walk.
Our room was clean and smart with a comfortable bed, big TV and a fridge but it was rather soulless and design triumphed over function in that it had no drawers for clothes or other stuff. Equally the bathroom looked very good but the floor got flooded every time we had a shower.
The restaurant is OK for breakfast, serving the usual hotel fare but with nothing freshly prepared. We had one evening meal there which was tasty but the helpings were miniscule. The restaurant is called Blanc because it is decorated mainly in white with a few coloured bottles for accent, so looks like someone overdosed on House Doctor.
The bar is in the reception area and looks very unweloming like an airport lounge.
Truly excellent - found this hotel via the internet as a last minute booking. Although it was a little hard to find it was well worth the effort. Friendly staff, lovely rooms (with lots of nice touches). Right in the heart of Girona with everything around you. Restaurant was superb too at ridiculously cheap prices. You won't be disappointed. A true gem.
Wonderful place,great hotel
Stayed in Girona for our last night,after a busy few days in Barcelona.A wonderful hotel,the girl on the front desk was very helpful,the breakfast had lots of choice,rooms very stylish;cd player,internet access,a quality place.Girona is a good place to visit,wish we could have stayed longer than the one night.Make sure that you check out the gardens and walks round the city walls,very peaceful.
Really nice hotel and very obliging staff
Although a little hard to find, the parking is not at the hotel but very close by - the hotel is in small cobbled streets which makes getting there a little challenging but the road signs definitely help.
THis was a really nice hotel. The staff were so obliging that when I realized I had booked a room for June and we were there for the same date but July, they had charged me for the no show but then gave us the room for free in July. Very very sweet of them as they did not need to do this.
The hotel itself is very nice - a good quality 4 star hotel and the beds are quite comfrotable.
The old town and restaurants are all very close by and you can easily walk around the town, thus leaving your car in the garage ;-)
Would definitely go again!
Excellent. Staying in Gerona? Stay here!
Staying in Gerona? Stay here! Nearly new hotel, modern and stylish. Very central location, 2 minutes from where you want be but still enjoying a peaceful location.
Mini Bar is free yes free, it only has a few drinks in it but free noneless and refilled when empty.
20 Euros for a taxi from the airport to hotel, approx 20 minutes.
Very worth while. Trian station is a short walk, 10mins tops. train to Barcelona is 75mins and costs around 10euros return, they operate a frequent service.

First Class Hotel
Got Hotel off the internet. Have absolutely no regrets. Would recommend the hotel. It's location in the city is perfect and the helpfulness of the staff made the stay easy. The service was superb, the room was first class, well worth a return visit.
We found the hotel on the net at a small hotel booking agency in Barcelona. We were amazed at how good this hotel was when we arrived by train a couple of hours later. The receptionist who spoke perfect English could not have been more helpful. The room was first class as was the bathroom and it even had a complimentary bar ! all for 90 Euro's for both of us. The restaurant was very good and was one of the few which has a no smoking area. My only complaint which was not the fault of the hotel was that in the early hrs of Saturday, there was a lot of noise in the street below. Rather drunk young men and women singing. However this did not detract from an otherwise excellent hotel in a very nice town.
Must visit city and hotel
1st class hotel in a great location. the staff are a credit to this very modern,clean hotel with a great resturant. girona is a gem of a city and is well worth a visit you wont be dissapointed.
Brilliant Gerona Hotel
Picked up the hotel on the internet and came here with some trepidation, neednt have worried its superb!
The rooms are first rate, the service exemplary and the restaurant has food you could die for.
A real pleasure to stay here, no small compliment as I spend my working life in hotels across the globe. Real value for money in a wonderful city.

We are in Spain! Found a camping site in Barcelona for tonight and tomorrow to celebrate New Year's Eve. Can't wait to shower and do laundry! (After boondocking in parking lots and "Aires" - essentially roadside rest stops - in France for several days, anything with real showers and toilets feels like a palace!) This campsite comes with a bar and restaurant ...
So I really haven't written in this properly for a while, probably because I've been busy, and having a lot of things on my plate than when I first got here. Figurers was pretty great actually. I firstly rushed this morning because I thought I was going to miss my train, but it turns out I could catch one first to Sant Celoni, then transfer to Figureres. I had to wait around half an ...
Last day here. We are going to the caves this morning and then having paella for lunch, so keen to finally have some traditional Spanish food. Last night dinner was quite good, we went to a restaurant and had muscles which were so yum! Also some fish soup which was strange but good. It's sunny here today and looks like a beautiful day. Let's see how the day pans out ...
Zzzzz kids you are so slow at getting ready. Today was quite nice! We woke up, got ready (slowly apparently) and headed off to the lighthouse. The view here was honestly gorgeous! It was slightly warmer than yesterday, although today was super windy so my hair was blowing everywhere. We had sandwiches, croissants, muffins and coffees; all really tasty. This was relaxing and nice and warm instead. We then walked around down to the actual lighthouse, which was beautiful. ...
... The people here are gorgeous, they all wear beautiful clothes and never looked under dressed. I want my Spanish to improve so maybe I can live here one day. I love the food, clothing, lifestyle, familial values and just everything. It's truly a unique and wonderful place. I haven't felt home sick at all, although I did Skype Luke today, which made me miss everything slightly. Tomorrow is the first day of my true life here, where I ...
