Reviewed July 18, 2011

We stayed one night while in transit. On the internet booking a breakfast buffet was included. But when we got to the hotel the staff said that breakfast cost 6 euros a person. I told them that the internet site said buffet breakfast included - they told me that was for the more expensive rooms. When I tried to bring up the internet to show them, there was no internet connection.
So, I don't recommend this place - they are dishonest.

We stayed here because of the short distance to the train station. The next day we planned to travel by train to Dali Museum in Figueres. But it turned out that the ancient city of Girona center here is also very close. Our room was small, but enough cosy. On reception us have pleasantly surprised. If not to reserve a breakfast online, and to pay for it in hotel, it costs at a discount 1 euros :) The breakfast a buffet was plentiful and tasty. In general, we remained are happy. There were no irritating factors.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms spotless and peaceful, and the location perfect as it's close to the stations and is in the Centre. We would certainly stay again.

The Hotel in the rate of 1 star, so no demand for the luxury room with kettle or air-conditioning.

We stayed there for 1 night only because of early flight back to UK. So, we had the visit to Girona town, about 15mins walk to Cathedral and 6 mins walk to main bus station which is very good location if you need to travel to airport in the early day (euro 2.50 single to airport)

Plenty of comtemporary shops surrounding such as zara, H&M etc But we hardly to find the restaurant for dining. so make sure you have it in town before you back to hotel.

Luckily we were there for 1 night in May, so the weather still not too warm as there was no fan or air con in the room. We offered to have twin single bed, a medium hard bed in good condition. The bad thing was, roller shutter installed in the window, we couldnt open the window for fresh air. I am not sure is this for security system or what. Since it is located in the main road, next to the roundabout, so it was noisy because people shouting on the street for football celebration (we stayed in 1st floor).
Bathroom was clean with good quality hair dryer.

This is suitable for simple stay to business/ short trip in budget traveller. What to expect more this is the cheapest I can see for Girona town nearby to Bus station in euro57?

Room Tip: Try to ask for upper level room

I stayed in Pension Margarit for a night during my visit to Girona. The staff tried to seem friendly but was unprofessional and incompetent. When I arrived (after check-in time) I was told that room was not ready yet. After waiting for an hour I was given a twin room while the booking was for a double one. Fortunately, everything was sorted out but it was such a waste of time.

The room was clean but very old fashioned and gloomy. The walls were very thin and you could virtually hear everything from adjacent rooms. Our window overlooked the main street which was very noisy all night long. No key card system was used and you needed to carry a heavy key. It was still March and room was not heated well. Surprisingly, bathroom was very modern and spacious (much larger than a bathroom in a standard hotel). The hotel offers a free WiFi and a good breakfast. However, the best advantage of this accommodation is its excellent location - very close to the train station and main places of interest in Girona.

In the end, I would say this hotel is ok but overpriced for what they offer. Paid EUR 50 for a night. I would not recommend this hotel to travelers who require some privacy either as sound isolation is very bad.

Excellent value for money. Good quality continental breakfast and if leaving hotel early hotel management are flexible on breakfast times.
Very good location as close to both rail/bus stations and the old town.
Airy rooms with refurbished bathrooms and flat screen tvs make for a pleasant stay.
Have stayed in various hotels in Girona and consider this one to offer by far the best value.

We have just had four nights at this super little pension/hotel. Our room was very comfortable and a good size. The bathroom was excellent, spacious...and plenty of hot water.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly.
The buffet breakfast was excellent.
The location was also very good - well placed for the station/'bus station and the old town of Girona. It is a very good area to stay in.
We would be very happy to stay here again.
