“very happy to be back”
Reviewed 9 September 2010

second time staying here and this time we chose one of the apartments to give a little more flexibility. Great location and facilities, were greeted by the owner who was lovely and helpful - if you're worried about the bells, just get some earplugs - I found them less troublesome than my hubbie's snoring!! If you're driving here, definitely get some directions in advance - it's quite tricky but all part of the fun.

Stayed for one night. Everything was exactly as the other reviews stated -- amazing location, great staff, and beautiful, clean rooms at a great price. As for the church bells, we definitely heard them in the morning, but we also left our windows open, and they were not much of a bother. We stayed in the Mosque room, and it was exactly what we wanted.

We stayed for one night in July whilst visiting Girona. The room was a good size, comfortable and clean. We had a balcony which was great and the service was friendly and although we didn't drive to Girona we noticed that they took the trouble to explain at length to some other guests the somewhat tricky route to the hotel parking spots. We really can't find fault with our stay and will no doubt return in the future.

This is a family run boutique hotel. Modern decor yet still not out of place with the old city of Girona. The family, which built the hotel about 10 years ago, goes out of their way to help. They even warned me about the infamous bells from the nearby cathedral before I made the reservation. The bells did not bother us at all. A beautiful hotel, with a beautiful room in a great area of Girona.

If you want to see Girona then this hotel is a great base. The hotel is a real hidden gem situated right by the cathedral - the rooms are really comfortable and the manager is a wonderful source of information about Girona.

If you want to explore the old town in Girona this is an excellent base.

The family owned hotel has been very tastefully upgraded with every room offering something different. The location is perfect for walking through the old town and is very close to Girona Cathedral.

The proximity of the Cathedral does have one draw back. As mentioned in previous reviews the church bells do tend to ring often and can be a bit loud.

Apart from that the hotel is highly ecommended.

This boutique hotel is a GEM! Wonderful lodging located right next to the Cathedral and within walking distance to everything loverly Gerona has to offer. I highly recommend it and would encourage anyone considering Gerona to visit and stay at this hotel. Everything was A #1.
