“Terrible-beware!”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

Still living through one night in the peninsular. Add a non- working air conditioner to my previous review. I'd ask for a refund but anyone cheap enough to use the toilet paper they use here wouldn't be someone you'd want to deal with. This is a One Star hotel and if you want to know what that means, there is no such thing as a no-star hotel.

I am writing this in my room at the hotel, which has two windows that look out at a blank wall five feet away in an air shaft. When you open the windows, the room fills with the smell of cigarette smoke from the "non-smoking" rooms below. The bed feels like a box spring without a mattress and sags in the middle. The pillows are hard and heavy as cement bags. The toilet tissue is thin individual sheets that are grudgingly dispensed from a tin box on the wall. There are cracks in the wall of this room and the carpeting feels like sandpaper. Even given the location, which is convenient to the old town, I would NEVER recommend this hotel to anyone! It's a dump with a fancy lobby. Go elsewhere or be very disappointed.

Clean, great price, just a 10 minute's walk from most things in town, half an hour at most. Free WiFi that is actually broadband - it really works.

Beds are hard, air conditioning / heating is noisy, and, BTW, this is the 21st century - one spare mains socket in the whole place - and that's in the bathroom. When it's time to rewire, at the very least, should put 2 more sockets by the desk. One on the bedside table for the mobile phone would be great.

Girona. What a lovely City. We arrived in there without any booking, walking in the main pedestrian street looking around. The tourism office indicated that the Peninsular is a good option. The public areas were nice and wormy. Nice decorations, flowers and an intimate atmosphere. That was nice.
The room was rather Spartan. 2 twin beds in a small room without any warmth in the room itself. The mattress was too hard and the pillows were small long, like a sausage. Not very comfortable. The light bulb next to the bed was so soft so it was impossible to read my book. Even the soap in the bathroom was so tiny that you needed a magnifying glass. The towels were small and thin, suffering from too much washing.

However the shutters were electronic and the button was next to the bed and that was very convenient. It was quiet so we slept fine.

I wonder why one could invest so much energy and care on public a reason one hand, neglecting the bed rooms on the other hand?

I really do.

Had a vacation trip and spent 4 nights there. Very good location, all sightseeing, railway station, shopping areas are in a short walking distance. Room was perfectly clean and big enough. Staff was friendly and English speaking. Free internet in the lobby. Breakfast was tasty with a local Catalonia hint. Good value for the money.

Room Tip: Street noise was sometimes heard but higher floors should be quieter.
