The location is excellent and difficult to beat. It really is right there next to one of the cathedral's plazas. It's terrific. Who cares about the bells? It's awesome.
The decor is a pleasant mix of the old stone from the original building and modern granite and wood. It functions very well from an aesthetic standpoint.
Staff were friendly, competent, and quick to do what they said they would do.
If you can get a deal, the apartments are a steal. For us, even just for two people, an apartment was cheaper than the regular hotel room, which turned into a wonderful blessing. The apartment was massive, and not just by Catalan standards. It could sleep five, including the couch. The kitchen was quality, with all appliances functioning perfectly. A drawback, though, is that we had no washer. There was clearly the typical alcove for a washer, but it was vacant. And the fridge was a monster. It chilled better than anything I've ever experienced in Spain.
Also, flat-screen tv, satellite (I watched the Barca-Chelsea semi) all work great. My only real complaint is that lack of wireless internet. The rooms are, however, wired with ethernet jacks, and the guy at the lobby desk was only too happy to lend us an ethernet chord, thus remedying the problem.
I highly recommend this place to anyone, especially during the off-season when the deals you can get for such quality are just unheard of. This is the best hotel in all of Girona, hands-down. The only other complaint is that I was with friends and not able to take advantage of the uber-romatic atmosphere of the hotel and Girona's old quarter with a significant other.
