“Absolutely superb”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

It is clear why this hotel is so highly regarded. Excellent in all respects. Very cordial welcome from all members of staff who made every effort to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Fantastic breakfast, with excellent service. Extremely convenient location. Most comfortable bed ever! We shall return on our next visit to Girona.

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights in January 2012. We booked it directly on the hotel website and paid eur 80 per night for a double room (just accommodation).
The hotel is perfectly located: 10 minutes walk to the railway station and at the same time 1 min away from the old town. A room was not big but had absolutely everything in it, including robes and slippers, a kettle, etc. External soundproofing is excellent (a very quiet room with no cars, and double glazing). Internal soundproofing is not ideal, but the hotel was half empty in January and it was not a problem for us.
I would recommend a breakfast in the hotel. It is a little expensive (12 eur per person) but offers a truly fresh orange juice, which is a great start of the day. A nice cosy restaurant where is is served is also

we were so pleased with this hotel from great beds good quality restaurant
lovely helpful staff its a real find

it is set in a pesdestrianised section of shopping streets att with decorations for the festive season

the river is crossed by many bridges the closest two mins from the hotel so off to the Ramblas or old town and catherdral

Indepenza plaza is round the corner with many good cafes and restaurants we ate in two we enjoyed both

la Docle Vita was where we spent New Years Eve which was superb silly hats etc and bottles of champagne and the traditional 12 grapes to eat between the bongs of the clock at midnight

our the hotel restaurant was booked up for New Years Eve by the time we got there with outside bookings

Blancs is a very popular local restaurant and witha lunch menu of three courses with glass of wine and water all for less then 10 euros who can blame them

we also ate there one night and found the quality and prices very good
all in all a lovely holiday of three nights

Room Tip: we were on the fourth floor it was fine a walk in shower good quality seperate hair dryer free safe...

Ciutat de Girona did not disappoint our expectations - on the contrary. It is a fine hotel, right in the centre of Girona. The reception service is friendly and tries to fulfill every wish (a quiet room was important for us). Our room was spacious and really quiet (due to the perfect closing windows), the bed was big and we liked also the interior design of the room. There was even a kettle and some tea bags, things you wouldn't expect in a hotel in Spain!
Last but not least we can recommend the hotel restaurant "Blanc", where also breakfast is served.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in December 2010 -- very happy with both the hotel and with Girona. The bright red design emphasis in the rooms appealed to me in person as much as it did online. Great (firm) bed, fine shower, interestingly designed bathroom sink. No problems with noise. Our room overlooked the patios of apartments in neighboring buildings; looking at the various unique plantings and other features in these small outdoor spaces added local color and character.

The front desk provided a cable so we could get wifi on our computer. I'm assuming an iPad (have now stopped lugging the computer on vacation) could simply pick up the wifi signal from the room. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel, but there were plenty of cafes nearby. The parking cost is real money, which we were able to avoid when the receptionist told us about the option of parking in a vast free lot some distance away -- but still a pleasant walk in early December weather. Uncertain if the lot fills up at busier times of year. But I appreciated the receptionist not trying to strong-arm guests into using the pay-lot (which is around the corner and not attached to the hotel). A different receptionist was also friendly and helpful when a friend came to meet us on his bicycle; he was encouraged to simply leave his bike in our room.

As other reviewers have mentioned, it's tough to find the hotel, even with one person driving and another one navigating. Patience, and a cell phone if you get lost, are helpful. You will find it eventually.

Girona, with its river running through it, is a wonderful small city, very walkable, with sights ranging from several museums, including the thoughtfully put together and beautifully laid out museum of the Jews of Girona; an old city wall for a good long stroll and photo opportunities from on high; and shops and cafes of all varieties. The location of the hotel, a minute's walk from one of the bridges over the river into the old city, makes it very easy to reach destinations on either side. A well-stocked bookstore, with a reasonable number of English-language titles, is another minute or so from the hotel, as is a toy store that invites lingering. A huge government-operated bookstore attached to the nearby tourist information office has almost every conceivable kind of reference, history, photo, cooking, or art book you might want related to Catalonia (and some, beyond), though nearly all are in Spanish or Catalan. I bought a paperback aimed at Catalan speakers who want to learn English; reverse engineering is really tough in that strange and wonderful language but it's been interesting to dip into the book and try to learn a few phrases.

Girona is close enough to the Costa Brava to make it inviting to explore the towns and beaches nearby, even in the offseason -- including the area in and around Empuries, with its Roman ruins. The town of Figueres, the birthplace of Dali, is not too far a drive either.

A note to the reviewer who asked what's up with all the gelato shops in Girona . . ..Yes, they're ubiquitous, not only there but in Barcelona, and the flavors and displays are almost beyond imagination. On our 2010 trip, one shop was featuring "Avatar" -- blue, of course, though it tasted like vanilla. It's the US which is behind the curve on gelato, unfortunately, though there's at least one city in North America where it seems to be sold on every corner -- Vancouver could give Spain a run for its money on gelato shops.

Pros
- great location. Very close to the old town and yet you're outside of the old town so you have access to better restaurants and great shopping nearby
- The hotel's restaurant, Blanc, has amazing food with very reasonable prices. I normally don't trust hotel restaurants, but this one was an exception --- gourmet food at regular bistro prices.
- great service
- spotlessly clean rooms
- comfortable beds
- nice decor
- very fast internet!

Cons
- only thing i can think of is the very limited English TV channels

Definitely deserving of its number 1 status in Trip advisor.

Excellent boutique hotel. Room comfortable, quiet, usual amenities. Hotel staff were great in helping us with directions and information. You are within walking distance of many shops and restaurants as well as the medieval village just across the short foot bridge.
