Perfect hotel for a weekend break in Girona. Pleasant staff on reception, room modern and clean, but most of all so close to the train and bus station. Girona is a fantastic town, what a little gem. More compact than Barcelona and so friendly. Arrived on Friday lunchtime and did the usual tour of the town, with a trip on the tourist train. Went to a fab indian restaurant called Taj near the historic part of town. Great food and good wine at a reasonable price. Went to Estartit on Saturday, lovely resort with some great fish restaurants, very relaxed and not spoilt with english bars and "all you can eat buffets and breakfasts". Came home Sunday feeling very relaxed after two wonderful days away - because the airport is only 20 minutes from the town you really feel like you have had a break. - and the bus fare is only 5 Euros return.
The great thing about Girona is you can get a bus or train up the coast to Estartit or Figueres or go the other way towards Costa Brava or Barcelona and the fares are very reasonable.
Try it, it's cheaper than a weekend in London and although I am not a culture vulture (I also do all inclusive in Tossa Beach Hotel, Tossa De Mar) I love the history and general relaxed atmoshere of Girona and the Carlemany Hotel.More
