“Great location, lovely breakfast, helpful staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We stayed at the Hotel Peninsular for one evening, the staff were very helpful despite our late arrival. It was the perfect location for exploring Girona, walking distance to all local attractions and sights. Lovely breakfast to start the day, a range of items. Rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable, only thing I would ask for is more electric points, only one socket in the whole room. Lovely stay, thank you.

One of the best Hotels I have stayed in for the price. I went at a busy time of year and had a great room. Very classy. Went to the restaurant once for lunch. One of the best I have ever had and not expensive. Simple tasty and healthy.

Room Tip: I only stayed in one but it was a high standard. Single bed quite narrow.

Booked this hotel while visiting Spain for the F1. Good location, clean rooms a little bit on the small size but we weren't in the room much. Took the bus from gerona airport 5 min walk to the hotel. Also by the train station which we used to get to the circuit, bit of a challenge no timetables. Got lost coming back but it's all part of the adventure. Gerona is a nice city, plenty of places to visit, eat and drink. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel. Plenty of shops or cafes close.

Really comfortable room. Clean and the room aircon produced heat quickly which was important as it was very cold for end April!
No real view from the room but quiet and good dark shutters. Friends stayed in less good room but with superb shower . They got transferred next day to more spacious quieter room.
So best to arrive early so you can pick your room
Great location as close to old town but part of new town which is much better for eating drinking options

The hotel is well situated to visit Gerona. We arrived by train from Barcelona. The hotel is an easy walk from the train station. Our purpose was to stay one night and depart for a week's bicycle tour around Costa Brava. The receptionist provided maps and advice for walking the city wall and visiting the town, which we enjoyed. The shops were closed for siesta.

We requested a room on the quiet side of the building. The room is indeed quiet, but has no view except to an air shaft. We asked for a different room and were cheerfully accommodated. The second room was larger and overlooks the street, The open windows bring noise, of course, from footsteps and voices and music but not vehicles, as this is a pedestrian-only street. Occasionally the workmen up the street can be heard drilling up pavement, but that was only until 6 pm.

The mattress is very firm, really hard, making a restless night's sleep. Breakfast was good.

Fabulous city and this hotel was very convenient to everything. The staff were informative, friendly and very helpful.
Our room was functional although rather small with a view of a fire escape so not very appealing. The rooms could do with updating but were very clean.
Unfortunately parking seemed prohibitive. The hotel has an arrangement with a nearby car park for 8 euros until 9.00 am then you pay cash for any extra time. We left at 11.30 am and we're charged an extra 10 euros for 2 1/2 hours!!!!!!! Beware.

Stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. The location is extremely strategic and the condition of the hotel is excellent. Will definitely go back to the Hotel if I ever go back to Girona. The hotel staffs are extremely helpful as well. It is indeed good value for money stay.
