“Very good 3star hotel”
Reviewed 24 August 2009

Hotel is very good all round. Nice rooms, clean, a tad on the small side but bathroom more than makes up for this. Nice reception staff. Lovely pool area which is a massive bonus in a city. Pool area is small although extremely pleasent, relaxing and clean. Hotel has a small gym, jacuzzi and sauna which you can use for 9euros pp. Just outside the city so be prepared for a 15-20minute walk. There is a small bar area and public room where internet is available. Hotel serves evening meals at approx 15euros pp 3 course which was nice. Breakfast is more continental with a good choice. Small selection of hot things although they were very cold when we tried so avoided eating. Good all round hotel. Clean,comfortable,friendly and welcoming. Would definately return and recommend.

The hotel turned out to be detestable.

First of all the location - on the outskirts of Girona, far from the town centre and you will not enjoy the walk as there is even no pavement so you will have to walk right on the road!

The rooms. We got a room on the first floor and were shocked upon opening the window as we found out that the level of the ground was higher than our heads!!!!

The staff. Absolutely unhelpful. "I don't know" - was the most frequent answer. "How long does it take to get to the centre" - "I don't know". "What place could you recommend to dine out in the town?" - "I don't know." "What is the temperature of the water in the pool? Do people swim in it at the beginning of April)" - and again "I don't know"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And at last the category of people staying there. It is a common thing for a group of people there to open the doors of their rooms, to turn on TVs very loud and to shout something to guys sitting in another room watching TV. And it happened every evening and nobody cared so we made a conclusion it was an ordinary thing there.

Hateful, hideous hotel. Do not go.

Stayed at the Costabella for two nights in june09. got a very good rate thro the Ryanair website. The room was a large double with well stocked bathroom, flat screen TV and reasonably priced mini bar. The old town is a 10 min walk or euro8 taxi ride. The pool was much appreciated in the hot weather although the pool furniture was a little hard on the back

Arrived expecting to have a lovely last night of our countryside holiday in the city of Girona and enjoy a nice cool swim.

The hotel is not a leisurely 10 minute stroll into the centre as other reviews suggest (not even the hotel staff claimed the walk to be this quick) but a good 20 minute walk along a dual carriageway on the cycle path for much of the walk (no pavement).

The relaxing swim was accompanied by the noise of the traffic on aforementioned main road which really is a small stones throw from the pool and the sound of which was accompanied by what I assume was the outlet for the hotel's aircon system, also by the pool.

All was clean and sparkly except for our bath which was coated in scum that I could wipe off with my finger.

Don't get me wrong, you could do a lot worse, but I felt cheated out of a nice night and only paid £70 on laterooms. This is a business hotel, a decent travelodge type place, and not a holiday hotel. Everything was clean and comfy enough but not worth staying out of town for. I'd take a more expensive or less comfortable option with more character in the centre of Girona (or at least a truly 'short stroll' away) if I were to go again.

Couldn't fault this hotel or it's helpful staff. Stayed here in difficult circumstances when visiting a relative who had been seriously injured in an accident. The hotel is directly opposite the Dr Josep Trueta University Hospital and ideally situated for hospital visiting. The staff were brilliant, spoke good English and couldn't have been more helpful. It's a ten minute stroll to the lovely old town of Girona.

Just returned from a 4-night stay at the Costabella while the flower festival was in full swing. We have stayed in Girona 4 or 5 times now and usually stay at one of the 4 stars but we were very pleased with the Costabella. The rooms were clean with large comfortable beds, a full bathroom and a selection of toiletries. The breakfast was excellent, it was included in our rate. Perhaps would be a little expensive at 12 euros but maybe that is the exchange rate at the moment!

It was a fair walk into Girona - a good 15 to 20 minutes but you can catch the L2 outside the hospital opposite at 1.20 euros and it only takes 3 - 4 minutes to the centre. They run until about 10.45 pm and are much cheaper than the taxis now (6-7 euros for short journey.)

The rooms were a little noisy as they are not carpeted (agree with a previous reviewer) but we were not unduly disturbed and felt that the overall stay was very good value for money. Would go again. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Arrived at hotel on bus from Besalu...which helpfully goes straight past door saving taxi from bus station. General impression was of clean and tidy hotel, we had no problems. Didn't get to use the facilities or eat in...and much too cold for the pool!!
Was a little worried beforehand that it would be a long and lonely walk into the centre of the city but in fact it took us only about 10 mins to get to the park and there are a few shops along the way to look in. We were lucky that we arrived at the time of Gironas festival, so the park was one big funfair/ concert venue...in fact we could hear the live music from our room.
There is a bus which stops at the hospital, but by the time you have waited for it and caught it you can be nearly in the centre.
