Just back from 3 nights at the Peninsular in Girona and as I used this site for all my info, I thought it only fair to add my comments.
The Hotel couldn't be in a better location - walking distance to everywhere you would want to go in this compact city. The building itself is bland, but inoffensive, as is the reception area. On the other hand the breakfast room wouldn't look out of place in a trendy little boutique hotel, all crisp white tablecloths! My room was on the 5th floor, with windows opening onto an internal area, so no noise from the street. The bedroom was basic, 2 single beds, old fashioned fitted furniture, a tiny TV, all exactly as I expected for a 2 star hotel. However, when I opened the door to the bathroom, it was another story altogether! I could have been in a different hotel. It looked like it had been completely refurbed very recently. Modern tiles from top to bottom, huge shower, new fittings, good hairdryer, complimentary smellies......and the worst towels I have ever come across! Threadbare and grey! Bizarre.
When i was looking for help from the dayshift Receptionist to travel out of the city, she was totally uninterested. When I asked the evening Receptionist the same question he found and printed off both the train and bus timetables for me, and gave me lots of helpful advice.
I had a great weekend tho', and I have to say Girona is high on my list of favourite Spanish cities. I found it easy to get the coast (Roses) by train and bus, and wouldn't hesitate to visit again. Not sure about the Peninsular though, all a bit "hit and miss".
