Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Peninsular Girona
Peninsular highly recommended - but get larger room!
Good value hotel in the centre of Girona. We stayed for 4 nights in October 2004. Our room was very very small but clean with en suite bathroom with (power) shower - good for stop over and we were out all day. Would definitely recommend the Peninsular to anyone visiting Girona and would be my first choice for my next visit to Girona. However, I will definitely book one of the larger rooms or even a suite - slightly more expensive but still excellent value. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Good range of eating places in the area - Cafe & Te next door good for early morning coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, breakfast sandwiches and cakes.
Great value for short breaks
Girona is a beautiful city,and The Peninsular hotel is a clean, friendly and convenient hotel to stop in.
It's officially 2 -star,as it has no air-conditioning(the only drawback).However ,the rooms are spotless with decent sized en-suite bathrooms .The reception staff are extremely helpful, both when booking and also when staying.We plan to return when it's cooled down a bit.
Good value in the heart of the city
Very good value for money with spotless rooms and at a very cheap price. Nicely furnished breakfast room. Excellent location in the centre of town but it would have been nice to have a fan in the room at the end of June as it was hot and there was no air conditioning
Great little city for short stay
My wife and I stayed here in late Feb04 after a 3ngt stay in Barcelona on our way home. Flew in by EasyJet (?48 single) We travelled from Barcelona by train to take advantage of Ryanairs new flights from Girona - we flew on the first of the their new schedule for ?16 back home. The train from Barcelona was about ?3.50 and took 1.5hrs. The hotel is a few mins from train station-you could walk it in 8-10 mins or 6 Euros in a taxi. Taxi from hotel to Airport 16 Euros. Hotel staff were very nice/helpful and spoke excellent English - we wanted to sample some traditional Tapas bars/restaurants and we loved the ones that they recommended. The rooms were basic but clean,tidy,quiet-typical commercial hotels. I work in hotels-a word of advice-check out the web,find the best price then email the hotel with what U find,and ask them to match or better it. Usually they will coz they save agents fees.
Cheap clean and convenient
We found this after rejecting several others and felt very pleased. For 50 euros we had a big room (405) with two twin beds and lots of space + quiet as it was facing a court yard. And you couldnt be nearer either to the shops or the old town. Highly recommend the Basque tapas at the Zanpanzar bar there - not named but definitely the bar described on: ....
This is a fantastic hotel situated in the heart of Girona - superb location for sightseeing, shops and restaurants. Very friendly, helpful staff. Rooms very clean and comforable - well worth a return visit.
Perfect stopover hotel
The Hotel Peninsular is ideal for a night stopover or weekend break in Girona. A very convienient location by the river in the old part of the town. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Clean functional rooms.
Girona is a delightful town, pretty squares and narrow streets to stroll around. We had an excellent meal in the Cafe Mozart on the Placa Independencia.
In our two-week trip in Spain, this was the best value. It was close to everything--the train, the sights, the shopping, the tapas. The walls were a tad thin, but nothing kept us up. Staff service was excellent.
An underrated value in an underappreciated town.
Nice, but pretty basic
Overall a very nice hotel, only thing about it that we had a room with NO air con in mid July.
Otherwise I would have given a higher rating, because it was well kept, clean, with very friendly and helpful stuff, in a very central location.
Girona's Cheapest Jewel
Hotel is located in the heart of the city, close to pretty much EVERYTHING. Facilities are very clean, staff is extremely helpful and the price is right ($58 per night). Our only dislike was the lack of A/C (same all around Europe), if it is too hot (Summer weather) you need to open the windows and the street noise at night is sometimes unbearable (mopeds, motorcycles, you name it). Recommend you have a couple of glasses of Sangria or awesome Spanish wine with Tapas before going to bed.

... van at about 7pm- every night we would go to the on site supermarket and decided what we would have for dinner, usually it would be what will we have with salad. We would have dinner and stay up till 11 ish drinking our way through the amazingly priced San Miguel. We have had an amazing time here so much to do and cannot recommend it enough! Tomorrow we Are up early to go to Barcelona, we are just going to spend the day there and go to see the football barca vs Roma, should be ace! ...
... is fab and air conditioned. Chilled for a bit then all showered then found a basic but great tapas bar - friendly service and fab food and cheap to boot. Finished with a wander up la rambla and into the barri gotic. Lovely evening. Kids managed to persuade us to play a few games of cards so not a very early ...
... night so it whipped up a bit of a swell but nevertheless we pushed on a moved to another fjord a short distance away. This fjord, Fornells, is quite pretty and full of boats and watersport
Just as I was doing laundry the heavens opened – which was great for the washing down
the decks but dreadful as we didn't managed to close all the hatches in good timing. At least the surfaces that got wet were with rain water and not salty water.
While everyone went to a water park Chris, Les and I drove over to Tossa De Mar today. It is a seaside town with an old walled city. I really enjoyed wandering around the tiny streets looking in the shops. We walked up to the top of the hill then stopped at a restaurant on the way down for lunch. I had duck with a berry sauce then a rice pudding with cinnamon ice cream, yum. Got home at about 5 pm and just taking it easy ...
... for the solar panel but electricity is included in the price so no big deal.. We got semi set up and headed to the shop to get some dinner. BBQ was the most obvious choice and nice and easy so we tucked into that with plenty of San Miguel to wash it down. The campsite supermarket is great, dirt cheap for booze and pretty reasonable for everything else, the strong pound against the euro is really helping this year!! We eventually decided to put the awning up as someone on ...
