December 2011 - I stayed here with my partner to photograph Girona (which is such a beautiful, colourful, safe place). She and I were both delighted with the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff. It's close to the train station so gets a lot of use from business travellers, but we really felt 'at home' here.
We asked for some information of what to see in Girona, and were given a lot of really valuable local knowledge, as well as maps and guides on the 'must sees'. We walked to the Cathedral from the hotel on Sunday, and found it to be majestic (and free). The Jewish 'Call' makes great pictures too.
Breakfast was good - LOADS of choice. Freshly squeezed orange juice, Iberian ham, a range of croissants and cakes, salads, fresh fruit and hot English breakfasts too. We enjoyed a Romantic dinner at the hotel in the restaurant. The food was delicious and the Catalan wine is worth going back for alone!
Also worth mentioning that the wifi is free, fast and with good coverage; and there's a computer available for you to use to - which was useful to check emails and look for local opening times. Our bed was comfortable, the hotel was quiet, and the little bottles of shampoo were good quality. I don't often write reviews for hotels, but I wanted to share my good experience.
