Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A fabulous, family run hotel in the heart of the old and very beautiful city of Girona.

The original building has been tastefully refurbished whilst retaining much of the original architecture within both the hotel and the rooms. We stayed there on 2 separate occasions during our trip and on both occasions the rooms were of a very high standard. Buffet breakfast is served in the morning with a wide range of items to choose from.

The owners are very attentive to your needs, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our luggage was lost by our airline and was due to be delivered to the hotel just after we checked out to go on a 4 day cycling trip. The owners said not to worry, they would receive our luggage, put it away somewhere safe and it would be there for us when we returned.

Girona itself is a very popular cycling destination and if you are thinking of bringing a bike or renting one not to worry, the Historic has a safe place where you can store them when you are not out cycling.

Also if you're fan of Game of Thrones the hotel is a stones throw away from many of the major filming locations.

We stayed in 8 different hotels on this trip through Spain and the Historic was our favorite, we would definitely visit again.

A beautiful, sensitively restored historic and family run hotel in the old part of town close to the cathedral, with steps and alleyways leading to cafes and restaurants. We had a lovely clean and spacious first floor room with ensuite bathroom and comfortable beds. There was an excellent breakfast with fresh fruit, cereals and eggs cooked to order in the vaulted dining room. There is a great view of the cathedral and the rooftops from the top floor roof terrace, particularly at night. We cycled from Girona and were given secure storage for our bikes in the lobby. We had problems sleeping the first night due to a street light opposite our window. There were no curtains, just a thin external wooden blind that let the light through. After we reported this, the owners were really helpful and temporarily blacked out the windows on the second night, so we had a great night's sleep. Thanks guys and maybe invest in some curtains or internal blinds going forward. We have stayed here before, several years ago and liked it even more second time around, particularly being so convenient for the city sights.

Room Tip: Girona has a lot of steps and narrow alleyways, so you need to be reasonably fit.

Me & my husband booked "Romantic package", stayed only 1 day & half.
Room was nicely decorated, hotel is in historic building which really impresses you.
Location is perfect, just 3 minutes walk from the main cathedral.
This is family owned small hotel, nice people, always ready to give a recommendation about sightseeings or food.
Breakfast was fabulous.
Only disadvantage is the address, which is not correctly marked in GOOGLE map, this should be fixed by owners.
Just a little note, its not even disadvantage - when I asked for a warm blanket they gave us without covering /duvet, it was stained & definitely worn by previous gust (there was lots of stains on it).
Rest was very nice & generally memorable trip.

A beautiful building in prime position in the heart of old Girona. The building has been tastefully renovated and decorated. The manager gave us information on Girona on arrival.

However… this is not a four star hotel. There wasn’t even water left in the rooms for guests, which is a basic especially in this heat! We were waved in the direction of a vending machine by the lift for water, Coke or beer- not impressed. The room only had a shower attachment over a small bath, no stand up shower. Plastic glasses in the bathroom. The fridge was old and stained. The bed was rickety and squeaky. The electronic door keys only work intermittently. There was nobody there on morning checkout so we made our own arrangements for transport.

A few thoughtful attentions to detail would make all the difference to this hotel. It’s good to support a family business but at this price, staff could be hired to man the reception more frequently and more welcoming details could be invested in at little cost. Just because you are in prime position in a tourist area, doesn’t mean you should shirk the detail.

Despite the best efforts by the hotel front of house this is not a four star hotel. We had a number of problems with the first room allocated including a lack of curtains onto a brightly lit square, a broken glass bathroom door and being absolutely adjacent to the lift shaft. To their credit the staff on reception changed our room to one with shutters but the bathroom floor flooded whenever used. The character of the hotel is quirky and position in the old city is good . However this makes it very difficult to find and we had a nightmare navigating the narrow lanes of the old city by car. My advice would be to make for the Placa San Domenq and walk the rest of the way. My thanks to Javier who did his best for us but it was not the luxury boutique experience we had hoped for.

Fabulous location in the old city by the cathedral. Great value. Clean. Adequate amenities. Would definitely come again. For a short stay it was perfect however lacked a few of the comforts that often make a difference. For example, no tea and coffee making facilities (but when asked have us a kettle), no bottled water in room. However proprietor was helpful.

Beautifully restored historic building in the heart of the old city with just a few hotel rooms. This is a family run place and tended to with great kindness. Our room was small but comfortable. We enjoyed the communal terrace for a glass of wine before going out to dinner with views of the illuminated church bell tower. We felt very well taken care of and enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend.

We decided to book this hotel based on location, which is very good and star rating.
Mind you this is not a uni expensive hotel. We decided to treat ourselves.

And what a let down it was.

Mind you this was 2021.
The hotel didn’t provide a bottle of water. If you don’t have, drink from bath room tap… euuu.
The fridge was filthy.
The hotel didn’t provide a kettle for coffee or tea. You literally had to was few hundred meters to find a coffee shop.
The shower was so bad. Have a look at the picture and imagine yourself.

This hotel should not advertise as 4 start.
It’s very misleading and a total ripoff for that reason.

Sorry hotel historic for giving this feedback but I had to mention these.

Complete remodel, very stylish and high end fixtures. Large bath, no stand up shower, just tub. Nice subdued lighting. No safe in room. Balcony not really useable. Large room, but lots of wasted space. No coffee in room. Was at the top of the hill next to the church. A bit of a hike up and down into town, and the church bells go off every 15min. 24/7.

This family run hotel is lovely and just around the corner from the cathedral. It's been beautifully renovated in stone. Our room was gorgeous and we had a superb nights sleep. They provide secure bike storage too. Just a perfect place to stay and explore Girona.

Answer from jcinminn

I would advise dropping off the car and taking a taxi to the hotel, since the streets that allow cars in the old city are limited, and even in the 'new' city no easy trip. The taxi drivers know the way. Returning your car can be tricky because you have to be going in the right direction on the street the car place is on, so the garage is on your right. When picking up your car, ask for very specific instructions for getting to the garage. Otherwise you may be frustrated and trapped by one-way streets and no-left-turn intersections.

We had the Angels Suite on the top floor. It did not have a balcony, but it had wonderful windows across the front of the building, and the terrace was a few steps away. Other rooms described on the website list balconies as a feature, and I would trust them because the owner is wonderful.

You can park for free in a parking lot just outside the walled old town. The hotel is a very short walk away. Email the owner. He is very helpful.

We stayed in the hotel, not the apartments. We did have a hairdryer. The owner is very helpful and I am sure if you request one then it will be provided.
