Hotel historic is in the historic part of Girona very close to the city's beautiful Cathedral and as is the norm the bells ring every 15 minutes the tone of the bell is very deep as is becoming for a Cathedral we were not disturbed by the bells it is what we expected and adds to the drama and romance...

Our tour operator Inntravel recommended and booked the hotel so although we were pleased with the location, rooms, value and breakfast, we hadn't really done our homework and perhaps should have. You can't drive to the hotel without a permit. You can get pretty close and park there with a hotel permit, but to find it by sat-nav isn't really... More

The Hotel Historic is located in the old Jewish neighborhood. It is 1 block away from the Cathedral. It is run by husband, wife and son and they could not do enough for us. We had a total of 5 rooms. Actually one of them, since we had asked for a triple, we were given an apartment with 2 bedrooms... More

This small family run inn, built from scratch by the owners over old roman ruins, is handcrafted and charming, if you take the time to acquaint yourself with the owners. They make the breakfast of whatever you want, tell the story of their years if labor, and can tell you more about the city than any guide. We had a... More

We spent the weekend during Fires festival at the end of October. Hotel Historic is a spectacular location to view the midnight procession. Rooms are clean and modern for a hotel located in medieval heart of Girona.

There is much to like about the Hotel Historic: great location, beautiful building and room, good breakfast, helpful host. However, the bells from the cathedral next door rang every 15 minutes 24/7. We could not sleep Saturday or Sunday night, so could never recommend this hotel. As well, the bathroom features a clear glass door (always a peeve and spreading).... More

The Historic is a small, family run hotel just next to the cathedral and its character rings true to this medieval city. My room was on the 1st floor at the front of the hotel yet was pretty quiet. The room had a comfortable queen bed, working desk, a room safe and air-conditioning; very comfortable and modern throughout. The bathroom... More

We visited the Girona Tourist Office while passing through the city. They recommended we stay a few days and see their lovely city and offered to help us find an apartment for 3 days. We were worried about parking but the hotel parked our van right outside the hotel. They recommended this apartment for us that was in the "old... More

My wife and I stayed here on a birthday trip and loved it. The service was excellent, the room was quirky, but spacious and very cool, and the hotel is very well situated, a minute's walk from the cathedral and easy walking distance to all the town's sites. Prices were very reasonable, and we would definitely stay here again. Highly... More

This place is in a perfect location, right up by the cathedral. It's easy to walk anywhere. We had a family apartment, with 2 separate bedrooms and a lounge, which was great for such a central city hotel. The owner was very helpful especially with directions and parking. Highly recommended.
