Reviewed 21 February 2012

We spent 2 nights in the Hotel Peninsular and found it to be an excellent base for sightseeing.
Our room was spacious and clean with a very comfortable double bed, the bathroom was also an excellent size.
The staff was very helpful and recommended some great places. It is an excellent 3 star hotel.

excellent location at a few steps from the river and the rambla, with a very good parking and a kind staff. the hotel has rather a long story - look at their vintage pics in the lobby - and is being continuously refurbished in such a way to look a bit cool, but quite in a traditional mood which was for us delightful. silent, clean, cozy... perfect!

Went with 3 other friends from University days (long ago!) We wanted to see and do as much as possible and found this hotel really central. Staff were extremely helpful and we will all stay there again should we return to Girona.We did not actually use the restaurant so cannot comment on it.

Room Tip: all our rooms were good although one of our group was near an elevator and could hear it going up an...

Stayed for one night . (Single room 401) was spotlessly clean and the bathroom was gleaming and had a shower over a small bath. The room was not over big and was a bit dark as the window only looked out over another wall, but hey, I wasn't in the room during daylight hours. There was a wardrobe, bedside table and dressing table. A flat screen tv, but only Spanish channels. The staff were helpful and friendly and let me into breakfast early as I had to catch a bus to the airport. The location is perfect, close to the old quarter, the roman wall and the cathedral, plus close to lots of retaurants.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the higher floors, although street didn't seem particularly busy on the night...

An excellent hotel situated centrally and within walking distance of many areas of interest. Excellent accomodation and helpful staff. Fast trains to Barcelona make it possible to make day trips if you don't mind the extra travel. We stayed in a cold and dull February but still enjoyed exploring the city. Would definitly want to stay here again.

Stayed for a week-end break in August. Great location, reception very nice, but stairs leading to first floor - very shabby with threadbare carpets which let down the nice entrance. Rooms basic, chipped paint and generally shabby. Breakfast poor, restaurant smelt musty, tablecloths had not been wiped, bit off a put off! We just had coffee and went elsewhere for something to eat. We did'nt get a bargain break and so can't even say 'we got what we paid for'.

Tip - Come out the front of hotel, turn right over the bridge, there is a restaurant a hundred yards walk. El Cub!!! Think that was the name of it. Excellent food, so much cheaper than the restaurants in the old Town. Bottle of house wine 8 euros! (It was a really decent bottle of wine). The food and ambience was great.

Girona is well worth a visit, superb architecture. We took a train to Barcelona one day, 30 euros return for both of us.

The Peninsular came with positive reviews so was anticipating a pleasant change from chain hotels given it's homely look from photos.

The reception is nicely decorated, however I was disappointed with the room itself. Old beds with paper thin linen, with little in the way of furniture. The bathroom had a shower held up at waist level and there was no toilet soap ( we had to ask for it). Fine for a basic experience, but having stayed in three other Girona hotels in the last month I felt that the Peninsular didn't offer value for money. Yes, it is central.But if you have a car, you are better off getting a deal from one of the chain hotels that are just outside the centre and driving the 5m into town.
