Sleepless in Girona for the price of 55 Euros

Review of Bells Oficis
2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 25 Jun 2011
Sleep, overrated!!!!! Who needs sleep when you can have the great sounds of a cleaning truck at 5 AM followed by the chirping of seagulls. Mind you, Girona is not an ocean city. Granted, you could say this is not their fault. Except, in true US fashion we needed to breathe in the room. No A/C sort of forced us to be obliged to open the window. In other words we had two options:

1) Open the window and get some fresh air.

2) Suffocate and sweat like pigs.

Sure, Europeans are used to this type of accomodations as opening windows is part of the experience. Not all travelers are European; not all travelers like to face a noisy street.

Back to sleep being overrated, why would I substitute the bed we received with a sleeper number when I can feel every spring on my back? That just added to what was a sleepless night right before a nice long drive to the north to Port Lligat, Figueres, and then Barcelona.

In some ways I wish this were the only thing wrong with the place. Yes, we agreed to share a bathroom, but never did we think we would not have ANY type of soap available to us. Thankfully my girlfriend brought a bar for emergencies.

In all fairness, Silvia, the girl who tended to us was very nice and even gave us a great restaurant recommendation. She was not, however, the owner of the property and was doing them a favor. We were leaving early and left us "breakfast" outside overnight including orange juice, milk, and yogurt (don't get me started about milk being left at room temperature overnight) She was very nice, but nice does not make for a good night sleep or a good experience (wifi was down too, by the way). A good night sleep on a comfortable bed were the two things we were looking for. In this case we received neither.

Very good service, location, breakfast. No wifi, no credit card payment accepted, bathroom too far away from room, no hand towels available in room. Too expensive for comfort offered.

Our family of 5 had a superb stay at Bells Oficis which is situated right on the Ramblas area of Girona. My wife and I had a room with a balcony overlooking the pedestrianised street itself, and it was great just to sit there and watch the comings and goings. Everything was within walking distance of the B & B. The owners, Javi and Olga, spoke perfectly good English and couldn't have been more helpful. We found our own restaurant on the first night (awful) and took Javi's advice for the second (brilliant). The breakfast was plentiful, the rooms nice and clean. It's not a 4 star hotel but I loved the place and would definitely go back - soon I hope!

Room tip: I'd go for one of the 2 rooms at the front.

We loved our newly renovated Large Room with private balcony. Our accommodations were very comfortable and also quiet considering we were located conveniently inside the old part of town. Our host provided excellent recommendations, and even held our luggage for us after we checked out so we could continue to enjoy our surroundings.

My wife and i stayed in this B&B for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. Olga and Javi have made it extremely easy for us to settle in and even upgraded our room the day we arrived. A friendly atmosphere, great breakfast and awesome location are some obvious qualities of this place, but you will also find some very easy going owners, ready to help you out with anything you can throw at them :) Thanks Olga and Javi for making our stay in Girona memorable !! We ll definitely come back, with more family this time.

No regret booking this B&B at all! Location of the B&B is eas to find and approximately 10min walk from the train station. The owner of this B&B, Javier, is very hospitable. Breakfast provided is excellent and meet my expectation. There is free WIFI too!!! I will definitely come back to this B&B again....
