The hotel is conveniently situated in the centre of Girona.
We were in room 4.1 which is a very large apartment on the top floor of the hotel. For guests who have difficulty walking up stairs this won’t be ideal, because the lift only goes up to the third floor and stairs are required to get to the final floor.
More generally there are apartments facing the street and apartments facing the pool area. We stayed in one facing the street, which was fine by us, but it can get loud at night during the weekends. All rooms have air conditioning and are equipped with a kitchen area. The bath rooms are clean (ours only had a shower, no bath) and essential toiletries are provided by the hotel.
Some apartments have a balcony, most don’t. One thing to note is that these are apartments and not typical hotel rooms. The pool is fairly small and comes with few amenities although it’s perfectly fine for a bit of tanning. We didn’t try the breakfast or the dining in service, so can’t comment on that.
The service in the hotel is fine and the staff is more than happy to help you figure out where to eat, how best to get to certain towns, etc.
The town of Girona:
The town of Girona is fairly small, but picturesque. The hotel is conveniently located in the old part of town and about 10mins walk from the train station. There are many tapas bars around the area and a few nice restaurants as well (recommend restaurant Llevataps and restaurant Nu, which are walking distance and the world renowned El Celler de Can Roca, is about 10mins by car, but you’ll need to reserve a table months in advance). The old part of town has some nice historic sites and has a decent shopping area for those who interested.
For our trip in Girona we booked the following restaurants: El Celler de Can Roca (Girona), Sant Pau (Sant Pol de Mar) and Compartir (Cadaques). We didn’t have a car so we depended completely on taxis and public transportation.
- El Celler de Can Roca is perfectly fine to travel by taxi from Girona centre.
-Sant Pau is possible via train, but takes about takes about 1.5h and you’ll need to change once. The trains are very nice and air conditioned.
-Compartir is pretty far from Girona and will take about 2-2.5 hours by train or bus (the bus only goes during the week and not on weekends).
-If you book any of these restaurants, I’d suggest booking lunch as you have plenty of time to get there, can enjoy the surroundings before / after and in the case of Sant Pau or Compartir, you won’t need to take an expensive taxi ride back in the middle of the night (taxi will cost you about 90 euros from Sant Pol de Mar).
