“Best location in Girona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

Truly great location in the city center (and can't beat all the street signs that help you find it if you're driving as we did, coming in from Barcelona). Very pretty area with cafes and stores and then a half block to the bridge to the old quarter. We really appreciated the staff, too. They were extremely friendly and helpful, and I don't say that about many hotels and their staff. The room was modern, and the price was good. Our only criticism was the bed, which we found to be too firm and uncomfortable. The room had a great shower, which helped in the morning. We'd stay there again. One more note on the parking. As others here have noted, you can park for free near the bridges. But we could never find an empty spot and cars were lined up there awaiting openings. We opted for the parking garage about two blocks from the hotel. Finally, one question. What's with the fascination with gelato in Girona? Unbelievable amount of gelato stores. Not necessarily a bad thing. Just remarkable.

Right in the centre, near the river - just a hop over a footbridge to the old town and just round the corner from the Cinema Museum. Lots of restaurants close by. Pleasant multilingual staff on reception and in the restaurant. Undoubtedly a business style chain (Faderson) hotel but with lots of pleasant touches. Good buffet breakfast (a trifle expensive at 12 EU). Spotlessly clean. Good for a city break.... and to answer a previous reviewer's comment - there's no English TV because you're in Catalunya - we don't have Catalan TV in the UK or the USA do we?!

Room Tip: Because of the tight layout of the city there's no such thing as a room with a view - it may be...

Ciutat de Girona is a modern, upscale in a wonderful location. The rooms are considerably larger than typical European rooms. There is an excellent, popular and reasonably priced restaurant in the hotel, with a value-priced midday 3-course fixed-price menu with several options for each course. The double beds are big and comfortable--and are true doubles, not two singles pushed together. The bathroom is bright and immaculate, with a wonderful supply of toiletries, including the ones you'd want for a short overnighter to the coast or to the mountains. The staff were extremely helpful, even helping us store rent-a-bikes when we came back from a 3 day bike trip down to the Costa Brava on Girona's amazingly wonderful bike path.

Girona itself is a beautiful city with plenty to keep you busy for several days. There are FOUR major museums (cathedral, history, Jewish and cinema) and we spent a couple of hours at each. Descriptions of the exhibits are available in four languages at least (including English) and are detailed, clear and interesting. There are also an archeology museum, an art museum and several temporary exhibits. And if that's not enough, there are two self-guided walking tours, plus a guided tour of the city, plus a cute little tourist train, plus several well-marked walking paths into the nearby hills, etc. Girona describes its historical core as an open museum, and we'd agree....we'd also call it an open art gallery. In sum, Girona is a beautiful, wealthy, old city which has made a serious commitment to tourism, but is by no means overrun/spoiled with tourists.

Three minor criticisms of the Ciutat de Girona:

1. The TV is a good-sized well-located flatscreen, but there are no channels in English.
2. The soundproofing is good, but not perfect. We heard almost no street noise, but we could hear people in the hallway, and the sound of doors opening and closing.
3. The hallway carpet is grey, without a pattern, and shows dirt and wear.

Stayed here for one night with teenage son. Room was good size. We drove to Girona from Tossa de Mar and found the hotel with the help of numerous road signs. Parked in a free parking area under the railway and walked 5 minutes to the hotel. Close to all the sights in both the old town and the new. Highly recommend Girona - a smaller, less frenetic Barcelona! Lots to see and do - cathedrals, churches, medieval walled section which is a nice late afternoon stroll, museums and much more. Plenty of places to eat.

Agree with others that rooms are clean, comfortable, spacious and extremely well located for walking to old town. However, if you drive to Girona, the hotel is difficult to locate even with GPS, parking garage is difficult to find with very narrow entranceway and very expensive. Even after 3 days there, it was hard to locate. Girona is a beautiful town and we used it as central point for 3 days with trips to Cadequez and Figueras.

We booked 4 nights in this hotel and were a bit worried beforehand about spending 4 days in Girona. However, Girona is an amazing place... Way more character that Barcelona.. Which Is overcrowded! The hotel is in a good location , nit far from modern part of town and just round the corner from excellent square. Rooms were good and comfortable .. With tea and coffee which we didn't have in Barcelona. My only quarms were 1) no fresh milk/tea bags (as they'd run out) 2) no wifi in some rooms which is ruddy annoying and 3) some out of date tourist information given to us at main desk. Thanks for a great stay! Ps the sweets in the counter were lovely!!

Fantastic hotel in a very central location - lovely rooms with very tasteful decor and attention to detail. Warm and welcoming staff indeed. Parking facilities available very close by. This hotel is a true gem - a really high standard 4 star hotel which I would highly recommend to anyone - will surely return when in region. Thanks!
