Reviewed 6 May 2011

We had a one week stay in November 2010 at this excellent hotel which was really good value for money. The rooms were spacious and comfortable with a good bed & bathroom. The hotel was spotlessly clean throughout and the service great. The free minibar was a nice touch and was re-filled every day, and the bar prices were also good. The staff were friendly and helpful. The walk into town was pleasant and you are in the old town within 5-10 minutes. The wonderful terrace was great for sitting in the sun and reading a book & looking out across the fabulous views of Girona and the surrounding hills. Free Wi-fi in the public areas & the reception area was very stylish. Girona is a delightful city with wonderful sites, shopping and restaurants/bars and a great public transport system. We will be returning to this hotel & to Girona.

AC Palau de Bellavista was a wonderful hotel. Situated at the top of the hill, it's approximately 5-10 minutes walk to the centre of the town (down) or 15 minutes walk (up). The hotel offers free parking, which is great as we'd hired a car. Staff were excellent. Reception was always helpful. The rooms were clean and beautiful with the illuminated pictures of Girona.

Bathroom was good. Toiletries provided were more than sufficient (including, toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving kit). Overall the hotel is a great modern hotel. They also offer a great free Wi-fi service in the lounge (and occasionally you can pick it up in your room). The free mini-bar is also a fantastic touch with a selection of drinks.

My only small comment is that the hotel offers a 15% early bookings promotion, which on the website says 'This package includes complimentary fitness centre'. When we asked, they had an excellent off-site partner, which was not complimentary. We tried to argue it, all they told us was that the hotel hasn't got a gym and the offer applies to only hotels with a gym. There was no additional info on the website to exempt the hotel from the offer (as it did with other AC hotels that did not offer a gym). If the management is reading this, could you please change your website, or include small print, as it is very confusing (and probably against any promotional regulations).

Our stay at the hotel was very pleasant and we were made to feel very welcome on our arrival. The room we were allocated was more than adequate although if you are unlucky you will have an inward facing room with a view of rooms directly opposite. The mini bar is a nice touch with soft drinks, water and a single beer. Don't be put off by the location of the hotel which is located uphill from the main hub of Girona a 5 minute stroll downhill with a 10 minute walk back upwards, is not a problem for the vast majority of people.
We ate dinner in the hotel on our second and last night and were impressed with the quality of the food on offer from the set menu of 3 courses with wine, water and coffee for 25 euros each. An after dinner drink in very comfortable bar area whilst enjoyable may have been extended had the cost of drinks been a little bit mor resonable, we paid 9 euros for a spanish brandy and I would suggest that if the hotel were a little more realistic in their costs then the bar area might be a busy and more vibrant area with perhaps an increase in the revenue?

I consider this to be very good 4 star hotel, I would return!!!

Room Tip: Ask for an outward facing room

The hotel, staff and rooms are wonderful.
The 10 minute walk to Girona from the top of the top is amazing.
Have stayed before and will always go back to the same hotel
Taxi drive from the train station is 5 minutes.
