We stayed at URH Girona from Monday - Friday at the start of September. The glorious late summer weather allowed us to make full use of the small but adequate rooftop pool & terrace bar facilities. It was a pity the rooftop bar only opens Thursday - Sunday from the start of September or we'd have been up there every night! Thursday night was an al fresco film night with a couple of old classics being projected on a large screen.
We had days out at Tossa De Mar & a rather quieter, picturesque beach at Sa Conca which is reached through an exclusive, gated estate of villas hidden behind high fences & security cameras. Both destinations are within 45 minutes drive and well worth the trip.
We can highly recommend the URH Hotel. The decor is tasteful, modern & quite 'funky'. Everywhere is very clean and the staff were unfailingly polite & helpful. Our 4th floor room overlooked the street but it was well soundproofed and the beds were as comfortable as any hotel beds I've ever slept in. The hotel food was also spot on. It is worth taking the bed & breakfast option with plenty of choice in a pleasant dining room. We also ate from the lunchtime a la carte menu before leaving for the airport.
The hotel is on the edge of the city centre but it is a pleasant enough 10-15 minute walk to the main attractions. We ate tapas at Xic on the Placa Independencia. Prices were very reasonable, the food was excellent and the service friendly. By contrast, we emailed El Celler De Can Roca which is rated the 'best restaurant in the world' but we are unable to rate it as we didn't get the courtesy of a response.
As documented elsewhere on Tripadvisor, there is plenty to see in the historic city of Girona and we will definitely be booking our Ryanair flights for a repeat city & beach break next year.
