Reviewed 27 May 2013

Booked this hotel while visiting Spain for the F1. Good location, clean rooms a little bit on the small size but we weren't in the room much. Took the bus from gerona airport 5 min walk to the hotel. Also by the train station which we used to get to the circuit, bit of a challenge no timetables. Got lost coming back but it's all part of the adventure. Gerona is a nice city, plenty of places to visit, eat and drink. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel. Plenty of shops or cafes close.

Really comfortable room. Clean and the room aircon produced heat quickly which was important as it was very cold for end April!
No real view from the room but quiet and good dark shutters. Friends stayed in less good room but with superb shower . They got transferred next day to more spacious quieter room.
So best to arrive early so you can pick your room
Great location as close to old town but part of new town which is much better for eating drinking options

The hotel is well situated to visit Gerona. We arrived by train from Barcelona. The hotel is an easy walk from the train station. Our purpose was to stay one night and depart for a week's bicycle tour around Costa Brava. The receptionist provided maps and advice for walking the city wall and visiting the town, which we enjoyed. The shops were closed for siesta.

We requested a room on the quiet side of the building. The room is indeed quiet, but has no view except to an air shaft. We asked for a different room and were cheerfully accommodated. The second room was larger and overlooks the street, The open windows bring noise, of course, from footsteps and voices and music but not vehicles, as this is a pedestrian-only street. Occasionally the workmen up the street can be heard drilling up pavement, but that was only until 6 pm.

The mattress is very firm, really hard, making a restless night's sleep. Breakfast was good.

Fabulous city and this hotel was very convenient to everything. The staff were informative, friendly and very helpful.
Our room was functional although rather small with a view of a fire escape so not very appealing. The rooms could do with updating but were very clean.
Unfortunately parking seemed prohibitive. The hotel has an arrangement with a nearby car park for 8 euros until 9.00 am then you pay cash for any extra time. We left at 11.30 am and we're charged an extra 10 euros for 2 1/2 hours!!!!!!! Beware.

Stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. The location is extremely strategic and the condition of the hotel is excellent. Will definitely go back to the Hotel if I ever go back to Girona. The hotel staffs are extremely helpful as well. It is indeed good value for money stay.

The hotel is located beside the river and within 200m of the old town. Perfect location for exploring Girona. Breakfast was basic but sufficient. Rooms clean and good bathrooms. Staff friendly and helpful. Would stay there again.

Although maybe not as atmospheric as some of the hotels within Girona's historic centre, Hotel Peninsular is in a very convenient position - just across the river from the historic centre, and only a 5-10 minute walk from the train/bus station. The reception staff were helpful and welcoming, and it was no problem to store our luggage at the hotel before check-in and after check-out. Our room was on the 4th floor, clean and pretty spacious. There was a little traffic noise but it wasn't too bad and it certainly didn't keep us awake. Breakfast was okay and as expected for a hotel of this kind. If I were to stay there again, I would probably opt to have breakfast in one of the many cafe-bars nearby. The cafe-bar within the hotel itself was nice and looked to be frequented by locals, as well as hotel guests. Girona is a great small city with a lovely historic quarter and old city walls that you can walk on for some great views across the city to the mountains beyond. I hope to go to Girona again some time and, if I do, I will stay in Hotel Peninsular again.

Room Tip: I suspect that rooms overlooking Carrer Nou would be quieter as that street is pedestrianized.
