I echo the thoughts of other reviews - the hotel is minimalist and is a reflection of you get what you pay for - but nonetheless I found it to be very nicely presented and the staff helpful and friendly. It's pretty new and is built side by side with an Ibis - both are part of Accor and in my experience you will pick up the best rate by using either the Accor or the individual brand website. Finding the hotel was a little tricky - but once you get to know the layout of Girona it's a breeze. From the airport it takes around half an hour by going up the motorway towards France and coming off at the Girona north exit. Car parking is plentiful either on-site (free) or on the dead-end road outside and you can stay in one property but use the facilities of either. The room was small and very basically equipped but it was spotless and everything worked fine. The shower in particular was of the oversize walk-in variety and was powerful. Breakfast isn't as extensive as at the Ibis but then you don't pay as much and I thought the quality was good for the price. Apart from using the restaurant in the Ibis there aren't a lot of options for eating other meals nearby and a car is almost a necessity - although it is possible to walk into the old part of Girona in around 20 minutes by following the busy main road. Overall the Etap is very good value and is very well located - in addition to being close to the motorway and the airport you can easily drive down to the coast or up into the mountains and therefore makes a good base for exploring the whole area.
