Reviewed 10 July 2013

I booked this hotel as it was central and had good reviews. It was not easy to find with being a first timer in Girona but once I got my bearings I realised that it was an ideal base form which to explore the town.

The hotel is basic and you get what you would expect from a low priced hotel, however it has everthing you could want including a phone and TV (with english channels, cartoons for the kids) and even an iron if you request it. It had great air con so was never hot and the room was cleaned every day regardless of how late you left the room.

While I was a little unimpressed with the bathroom as it was a little worn in places, there was clearly damp on the ceiling and the paint was peeling, it all worked and there was ample space to move about.

I could not fault it otherwise, the staff spoke very good english and were always polite and helpful. There was a tv rooom on the second floor with vending machines and plenty of local shops and resturants near by.

Its easy enough to get the airport bus to and from Girona and the bus station is 5 mins walk away

Overall I found my stay very pleasent here and would definetly choose it again when visitng Girona

This was our second stay at Hotel Condal, and we've been pleased both times.
The locations is great, very central, short distance to walk from the Girona bus station.
The service is very friendly, the girls at the front desk are always ready to help.
Rooms are clean, and on both times we've had a room that is also decent in size with a good window. The only minus was that since weather was rather cold and windy, the window didn't seem to be made for that kind of weather and gold air was coming in through the window. But with an extra blanket for the beds this was not a problem either.

We're a family of 5, and we stayed 4 nights in the Condal (2-6 April). It's a small hotel with no restaurant or bar, but it has a lobby on the 1st floor. Lots of cafes around for breakfast, and no shortage of restaurants and shops nearby. Relaxed atmosphere, and we felt safe walking around the area at night. We got exactly what we asked for - a double room with extra bed for a child, and a twin room nearby for 2 teenagers. Spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. Both rooms had en-suites with toiletries provided and plenty of towels. Friendly, helpful staff. The old city, and access to the city walls only one street away. Large tourist information office just across the road. Bus and rail station almost as close. We had planned to go see Barcelona, but then didn't bother as Girona itself was fascinating. No need for a car. We took a train to see the Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres, and a bus to visit the beautiful medieval village, Besalu. It's not a luxury hotel, and it wouldn't take much to make it 'boutique', but we found it just fine as it is.

The hourly bus from Girona Airport to Girona center takes 25 mins, 5.20 euros return. A short walk from the bus station and you're at the Hotel Condal.
The staff are fine, courteous and friendly. The cleaners do a great job, everywhere is clean and tidy. Small hotel and rooms, but hey!, You're not going to be sitting there watching Spanish telly all day & night are you?
The hotel is ideally situated for the busy modern Girona and the quiet medieval old town, just across the river, with it's narrow alleyways, shops, bars and restaurants.
If you stay at the Condal, don't expect the Savoy or Claridge's, but, you will find a nice, clean, safe and friendly hotel that's great for the money and it's location.

Room Tip: Stayed in high a double room looking out towards the old town cathedral.

As you sometimes get with European hotels the single room i got was tiny and a bit dark but it was perfectly adequate for my needs. First time i've slept in a single bed in years but it was very comfortable. The whole hotel including my room was immaculately clean. The hotel is well located only minutes from the main train station in Girona. They don't have a restaurant but there is huge choice just outside the door. The old town of Girona is a few minutes walk away. Its a beautiful city to have a wander round and ther are some amazing restaurants and cafes to eat in. There is a regular bus to the university from just round the cornor in the square. Wifi worked really well, quiet fast. The only negative comments that i have are that the shower required a bit of contortion to fit in it as it was very small, and it was a bit noisy one morning when people were leaving really early. (Tile stairs and heels are a loud combination). All in all a good budget hotel in a good location.

Luxury accommodation this is not - but it never claimed to be.

The location and price were both excellent for exploring Girona - reasonably close both to the railway station and to the old town of Girona, at an affordable price.

Travelers should note that the hotel does not have a restaurant (there is a snack machine in the small, functional lounge) or bar - but this is no problem, given the range of facilities in the town itself.

The room was clean and functional, with everything that one needs. Given that the window looked out onto a main street, we experienced no external noise problems.

Front desk staff were extremely helpful and friendly with the usual language skills that put the stuttering English to shame.

First of all I have to say that I have rarely met such helpfull and friendly hotel staff. In a lot of hotels you get the feeling they are just doing their job but here, they actually enjoy it, and it shows. My room was spotless every time I came back to it and the reception staff were wonderful. I had a single room and if you like your pies you may find a double room more practical. For me the single room was just right. Someone mentioned the small window but all I tend to do is sleep in my room so....well I never noticed it. The shower is ....errr....on the small side. In fact its the smallest I have ever been in. Saying that it worked and there was always plenty of hot water. It also added to my amusement. Hotel is as everyone says 5 mins from the station and about the same to the bridge into the old town. Its also right next to the market which was great for me as I like to buy all my food for the day there. nope, if you dont want 5 star luxury (and lets face it you wouldn't be reading this if you did) its just about bang on for the price. I paid 37 euro per night and was over the moon with the place. Oh and the pillows were great!
