Located in the heart of the city’s commercial area (the Ensanche) near the most popular shops (El Corte Ingles/ Espai Girones), boutiques and fashion outlets and very near the historic city centre (1,300m), the Melia Girona is the perfect option for discovering Girona, thanks to its easy access and excellent communication with any point in the city, its complete facilities and the quality of its services. Furthermore, the Melia Girona provides 111 rooms; different dining spaces (breakfast buffet, restaurant and lounge bar); free high speed WiFi internet throughout the hotel; Internet Corner (E- Point) with a computer and printer; a fully equipped; 7 meeting rooms with natural light and a capacity for up to 200 people and private parking for 52 vehicles for the exclusive use of our guests
Welcomed by a rude front desk attendant and followed by an outdated property with cigarette smelling rooms. If that was not enough, it is next to the railroad tracks and far from the interesting part of town. If you are in Girona as a tourist, find yourself another place. The good reviews must be fake. The good times of the Melia chain are long gone.
Enjoyed our stay at this hotel. 10-15 min walk from centre of Girona. Staff are friendly. Free coffee machine at the reception hall was a plus every morning. Breakfast was good but not much variety. Would definitely recommend this.
We stayed two nights in late Sept. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the entrance. The windows opened, allowing in fresh air as well as noise (the train tracks are close by). Room was clean, beds were comfortable, shower was small and the safe was appreciated. We had both breakfast and dinner there. Good variety with both but the portions for dinner were rather large. They also have a "rewards" program whereby you get money back if you are eating in their restaurant and billing your room. As others have mentioned, it is a bit of a walk to the old town center, but one that is interesting and enjoyable. While not spectacular, the view from the old walls was worth the climb and, if you follow the river walk to the outskirts of town, you might spot a wild boar. I was told that they were quite common. A special thanks to all the helpful staff, especially Rebecca. Roger
LOCATION: somewhat away from the old centre, next to the Corte Inglés shopping centre; by car it's a 10' drive to the old town --> you can park for free around Plaça Vincens Vives if you are patient enough to find a spot, and then cross the river on foot on the pedestrian Pont de Sant Feliu; on foot it's a 20' walk to the old centre (always straight, you can't miss it, but not a particularly attractive road). PREMISES: modern and efficient premises SERVICE: staff is very friendly, helpful and efficient BREAKFAST: excellent choice of products, in line with Melia standards ROOM: very spacious, clean and efficient, no street noise; the bathroom was spacious and with everything in good working order. WiFi: reliable and fast in the room and all common places OVERALL: perfect place to stay for business, and even for tourism if you don't mind the walk to the centre
Stayed at the Milia Girona for 2 nights over the long weekend on the 12th October.
My review based on the following criteria:- 1. Location: About 2kms from the Jewish Quarter, so if you’re on vacation it’s at a pretty good place. - 5 stars
2. Parking: free public parking across the street at the hotel. We were a bit hesitant and nervous about the neighbourhood and our rental car so we chose to park at the hotel which was €9 a night. - 3 stars
3. Room Size: large for European size. Keep in mind an extra bed can make it quite tight. - 5 stars
4. Room quality/feel: all a bit dated and old. -3 stars
5. Housekeeping: probably the friendliest and the most efficient staff you will find at the hotel. - 5 stars
6. Wifi: terrible!!. Our room was at the end of the corridor and no devise would connect. Multiple and daily complaints to the front desk were met with excuses- ‘I’m sorry, it’s a bank holiday, maybe tomorrow we try’, ‘it’s late right now, we’ll call the technician tomorrow’, ‘it’s working in the TV room can you go there’ the moment we would reach mid way the corridor it would work. Seems like the staff knew it all along but just had no attempt to resolve it or suggest a change in room. - 1 star
7. Staff availability and Service- Poor. Only had 1 staff, at all times - check in and check out the Process was slow with fairly long wait times as the front desk had just 1 person at any time. - 1 stars
8. Fitness Center- located in the basement, with equipment that should by now make it to the museum and dysfunctional air conditioning and poor ventilation. This should never be a reason to choose Milia. Went in and straight out to take a walk on the street instead. - 1 star
9. Elevator: Ancient and slow. We stayed on the first floor and during checkout had to wait over 25 mins because the elevator was way too small and busy for Sunday checkouts. -1 star
10. Breakfast: good spread, long wait times, indifferent staff and gets way too noisy for comfort. The service and the noise levels makes it a - 2 star rating
In Summary: would I stay here again? Probably not.
Room Tip: don’t pick a room at the end of the corridor and pick a higher floor as the elevators are not intelligent and a lower floor gets deprioritized in the elevator logic.
