I selected this hotel based on reviews on Tripadvisor. It was listed as clean, friendly, convenient, etc. Our stay would be for two nights.
We arrived before check in time after disembarking from a cruise ship. They did not have our room available and offered to keep our luggage while we went site-seeing. This we did. We also used their public restroom. Clean and tidy.
We returned after 2:00 PM and our room was ready. They assigned us a room at the front/street side of the hotel. Very small balcony. It was clean but not as spacious or user friendly as I expected. I asked for an alternate room and they offered a side room with a mall window and even less floor space. We accepted the first room.
The next morning we discussed cancelling our 2 day booking and getting a refund. They offered us a room at the back. Much nicer room, obviously recently renovated. Large balcony. We decided to stay based on the new room.
We did not include breakfast in our stay.
GET A ROOM AT THE BACK of the hotel with a balcony. We ended up in 303. Very acceptable.
Note: Sink is outside of the toilet/shower area.
Note: This is a two star hotel. Very small lobby. They are happy to help within the scope of what they can do. We asked for hot water to drink-not available.
Note: No phone in the room.
Free internet (WIFI). Relatively slow.
Elevator is big enough for 6 to 8 people without luggage.
Plenty of hot water for showering.
Room very cleana and neat.
Location: Close to Girona Metro station (one block away).
