“URH = Utterly Relaxing Horel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

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.

This hotel seemed to offer everyrhing that we needed as first time travellers to Girona, but in some ways it disapponted...
Comfortable, clean and fresh rooms, but somehow the bar and restaurant did not live up to expectations....lacking character or choice and pricey!
Our stay did not start well with probkems with the lifts which were not explained by reception, and caused us a lot of unnecessary frustration.
Overall though, it was a pleasant stay.

Great modern, well designed fresh rooms. Very clean, we did have two single beds pushed together as other reviews state instead of one double but didnt bother us. Pool isnt huge but is a lovely place to relax. Films shown on a night on the roof terrace and bar open, great atmosphere and views.

This Hotel is a joke staff could not run a bath check-in was shocking for some reason I had to do it twice then when I got the room card went up and the room to find it not made up so goes back down and wait for the to be cleaned at this point not ONE WORD LIKE SORRY FROM STAFF gets card back goes up to room looks like it’s been cleaned this time.

Gets bath on the night only to find pubic hairs in it by this point I was dead inside so washed it myself

The hotels location is good . 14 min walk to the old town. The reception is nice and so is the little bar. The breakfast selection is delicious, the staff take pride in serving.

Room great. Only thing is at this time of the year, room gets super hot. For some reason the AC does is not powerful enough!

There is a pool on roof for a quick dip.

Would be nice if hotel had gym and sauna. Otherwise a great stay.

This hotel has very good price and really nice standard. Rooms are spacious, I loved big show rain shower. Lobby area and whole hotel is very modern same is roof top bar&pool area. It stays open till 1am so nice for last drink (mojito was ok, but gin&tonic much better). Pool is really small but if you want to chill out a bit why not... 15min walking distance is Jewish quarter and medieval part of the city...

This hotel is of modern décor with rooms well appointed and a swimming pool on the roof. Its buffet breakfast is excellent and it is only a 20 minute walk to the lovely old city with cathedral & Jewish quarter. When here make the effort to walk on old city walls for great views over the city. Many tapas bars make an enjoyable evening. Visits of note include medieval town with old bridge of Besalu, Lovely coastal villages with windy paths to walk for spectacular views include Begur & Calella Parafrugell. Another interesting place Is the town of Cadacques (Salvador Dahli lived here) with its whitewashed buildings against the blue sky. This would make a wonderful weekend visit.
