“Very good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

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.

Very basic hotel, even too much! :)
I stayed in this hotel for one night in July 2011 and it was OK. The place is new and light. Everything very clean. However no wardrobe, bad ventilation in the bathroom and noisy acclimatisation system, that is set up on too cool temperature. I tried to switch it off or regulate - but it didnt work - it seems to be central. So there I was in a cold "hospitals room"... :D :D :D
Anyway, the position is good, because close to main roads. And most of all - price is democratic. To sum up, even if the stay was OK, next time ill check some cosier place to stay.

Good for short trip / when you plan to stay in Girona for a day/night just to see the sights before moving on to Barcelona. Clean hotel without any frills ( well, you get what you pay for eh?). Place is a bit of a walk to the city centre but still okay. The staff were not the friendliest but still fine, just thought this was probably due to language difference. Breakfast were plain and simple bread and butter and jam and coffee, nothing spcial. One disappointment, we brought UK plugs (3-heads) for our camera and phone chargers and this is the only hotel that didnt have any adaptor. Would be a good thing if the hotel will have this in the future as a good number of their guests are from the UK.

A good ETAP hotel. Situated on edge of town (4 min drive from centre) in quiet area. Secure parking. Good breakfast for price. Rooms modern and cleaned well. Air con included. Good staff - keen to please. Swapped rooms immediately with no question (just to get a double bed instead of singles wrongly boked). A good place from which to explore Girona.

When I first made the reservation I expected a very basic hotel, but at 45 euros at peak season this is actually an excellent option. Room was spacious, incredibly clean and very well kept. Even the bathroom was reasonably big for the category. Although it isn't located in the city center, if you're driving, there is parking space and it is easy and quick to get to a public parking next to the heart of the city.
