hap dreams vs costabella

Hi

I am looking for 4 night's accommodation for a family of 5, and am torn between these two. Any feedback would be most helpfull!

My kids are 9,7 and 1, and the pool at the Costabella looks great, though a kitchen (Hap Dreams0 would also be fab, decisions, decisions...

We have 5 days in Barcelona first, and thought Girona might be a nice wind down!!!

Ta

Claire

I can't pretend to know much about these two hotels but I can tell you that the Costabella is quite far out of the centre of Girona on the edge of the motorway... It's not the most accessible place.

Hotel Ultonia on Gran Via Jaume I is reasonably priced with large rooms, and I hear that the Peninsular is similar.

Anyway good luck booking your trip and enjoy Girona - I live here and I love it, it's beautiful! :)

Hi

I came to the same conclusion and booked the Hap Dreams self catering flat. It is on Portal Nou, which I hope is nearer than the Costabella!

What would you recommend for the kids in Girona in terms of to do / where to eat. My kids eat dinner at 6, so we will most likely be dining at home but having lunch out! We are thinking of a bus to Tossa or L'Estartit...

Thanks for your reply!

I know you've booked but in case anyone else looks at the post..... The Costabella is out of the centre but accessible from motorway and a good base to explore the area, if not so convenient for Girona itself.

We stayed a night there on a mini-tour of Catalonia with my brother's family incl. 3yr-old and his in-laws.The pool was nice and we cd use it until 9pm (which is later than a lot of places). My brother and family also indulged in the morning before leaving (the other half of the party headed off early to Ceret). Hotel is right next to the hospital on the north side of Girona.
