“Worth the uphill walk!”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

We decided to go with this hotel as the price was great. In the end it was a good choice as it was a lovely hotel and the rooms and decor were excellent. It did have the feel of a business hotel rather than a romantic getaway but it served our purposes. We didn't have any meals at the hotel (we got breakfast at bakeries or cafes and meals elsewhere) so can't comment on the quality. Staff were very friendly and helpful, providing us with maps to get our bearing.

Free internet available in lobby via hotel PC.

As a word of warning: the hotel is located on top of a hill. From the old town or the town in general it is quite a steep climb back. Despite being 6 months pregnant I managed it fine but it did take a toll on our breathing and heart rate :)

This is a very modern hotel on the edge of Girona. The decor is very chic and modern with a slight industrial edge to it. Rooms are very comfortable and spacious. There is a fantastic terrace that has stunning views over the city and this is a great place to while away a few hours just sitting soaking up the ambiance. Food is good although the menu is not extensive. Can be a bit pricey for what you get though. Free parking and loads of it. Staff are great and cannot do enough to help.

We booked a hotel in Girona as a stopping point on our way from France to Barcelona. it turned out to be an inspired choice as both the hotel and the town were delightful. The hotel is located on the crest of a hill situated immediately above the old town. Its modern with large rooms and a had a good king size bed. Only drawbacks were no room safe (but easy to use the lockers at reception) and free wifi only available in the lobby. You could buy credits to use wifi or hard wire in your rooms. Positive was that the walk to the old town only took about 10 minutes and there are a wonderful range of cafes, restaurants, etc. Its uphill on the way back so plan for double the time to walk back, but at least it helps walk off some of a great meal.

Room Tip: they all seem the same - no views as all are located on the side of the hotel

This modern, minimalist hotel is perched high on a hill overlooking Girona city - and it's well worth the climb! Very good value rooms are quite spacious and have every modern amenity. About half enjoy open views over the city skyline. Staff are friendly and the free car park a blessing in an otherwise congested town. The buffet breakfast is good, too and overall, this hotel is highly recommended. There is a bus service to the City centre but it's quite fun to walk down (then up again) the steep hill past the fortified walls and castle. That might remove some of the kilos gained whilst eating at one of a myriad of 'tourist' restaurants or even at the recently-nominated 'best restaurant in the world'! Only two, minor grievances here; one, there really ought not to be glass tumblers in the bathroom and,two, beware the rather slippery bath when showering!

Room Tip: Try to get a 'room with a view' - overlooking the city skyline.

Hotel is situated at top of hill overlooking Girona. Great views of skyline and beyond!! Easy 15 minute downhill walk to Old Town. Very few cabs in town so walk back uphill is very challenging. Hotel rooms are nicely appointed with all the amenities. Staff very competent. Good choice if in town.

A modern hotel within walking distance of this exquisite city although the trek back up is hard work. The room was spotless, high tech and very comfortable with an amazing bath and a proper hairdryer (a first) .plenty of towels and product included. The layout of the hotel is a bit strange, the inside looks as though it hasn't been quite finished but the terrace is beautiful for a relaxing drink. Underground car parking a little difficult to negotiate as you have to arrange beforehand and buzz for the doors to be opened. The evening meal was acceptable if a little expensive but breakfast was good. Staff very helpful and efficient.

Room Tip: Rooms don't have a terrace as this is taken up by the front of the building. Bin men a little ea...

Great place to stay whre you get the view and comfort within walking distance of everything in Girona. A little bit dated interior but great design and a wonderful large terrace facing the ton and the mountains. Wonderful terrace to have a morning coffee or a drink in the evening. The hotel is next to the countryside and very green surroundings and bird twitter. Service is good and breakfast healthy and well presented. On a hill so walk back to hotel is a bit steep but to us it was just perfect.
