“Atmosphere, historic, character”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2010

I booked this place after reviewing several from trip advisor. I was looking for a place with character, atmosphere, clean, spacious and affordable. Casa cundaro has ticked all the boxes.

It was difficult to locate the place in the dark as most Spanish towns are massive, and Girona particularly can be difficult to know where you are! There are several exits from the highway, and many long roads after that. The old town, where the apartment hotel is located has very narrow streets, and it was made more difficult with what seemed like 'no entry' signs erected on these narrow streets which in fact we can enter! The landmark for Casa cundaro is in fact the University (not the cathedral).

We parked the car at the car park at the University, and walked up cobbled streets to the reception of Casa Cundaro, which is the Historic Hotel, the parent hotel. Xavier greeted and welcomed us to Girona, and gave us the parking label (for free parking), and got our luggage form the car. He even helped my mother in law with her rather heavy bag. He provided pointers for restaurants with local flavours: the first shop round the corner from where Casa Cundaro is, Divinum (greatest tapas we ever had!), and other restaurants a few blocks away from the tourists spot. He also provided us some challenge for us about the church bells and also got us intrigued about the history of Casa Cundaro.

The apartment-hotel was full of character, from the doors, floors, steps, and balconies. Very tastefully decorated. The apartment we inhabited was 204 (which had 2 rooms), and it was warm, clean, comfortable, and well lit. We could not hear a lot of the bells on the first night, but there were more bells on a Sunday morning. Very atmospheric.

According to Xavier, we were the first to see the newly renovated room - the one with the twin beds, as it had a window on the ceiling, where you get a great view of the cathedral tower. Our room, with double bed, has lovely french doors - very romantic indeed. The kitchen was adequately equipped and contrary to some reviews, the place was so warmly heated.

There is internet connection but you need to get it going first by going to the middle floor, where the lounge is.

All in all, a great find. I have no hesitation in recommending anyone to stay at Casa Cundaro. Girona is a great place to visit, and you can drive to various places such as , Banyoles, Castellfolit de la Roc, Besalu, Ripoll, Santa Pau, and Figueres if you wanted to). It is hard to find a place with such great value, history and superb Girona hospitality.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2009

Casa Cundaro has a handful of tastefully and very recently restored rooms in a centuries-old Jewish home a stone's throw from the cathedral. We stayed in Room 104, with the luxury of a huge bathroom. The house is the latest project of Xavi and his family who also run Hotel Historic round the corner, where you can get breakfast for a very reasonable 7 euros. Friendly, down to earth service and the chance to experience a little bit of historic Girona for yourself. I'm sure there are cheaper places to stay, but this was unique. Don't forget to ask Xavi if you're interested in the house's history - you'll be amazed by the stories that will pour forth!
