“Nice Looking Property, Decent Location, Okay Staff”
Reviewed 10 May 2012

My wife, young daughter and I stayed at this hotel in late April 2012. The hotel is located on a hill overlooking Girona; great for views, but not great for getting to the Old City. Rent a car if you stay here.

The hotel was very clean and our guest room was spacious and well appointed with a mini 'fridge, flat screen television, and comfortable seating. The AC was nice and strong, as was the shower, The guest rooms have the AC Hotel signature glass-walled bathrooms. However, the walls of our bathroom were completely covered in a pretty, mostly opaque, photo so privacy was assured. With a critical eye toward the small details, some of the furniture, and wallpaper, looked like it was from--and installed by--Ikea staff; not very good quality or installation. Overall though, a cheery-looking hotel.

The staff were not particularly friendly and some seemed downright dour. A few smiles and some pleasantries while performing services would be welcome and improve the customer experience greatly.

We stayed for a weekend with my husband at AC Palau and I can very much recommend it. Although it is a bit off-town (and with a steep climb - better take a cab!) the magnificent views make up for this fact. The hotel is small - two floors and a huge terrace on the lobby-bar level, with sofas to enjoy the panorama. Rooms are spacious and modern, breakfast is very hearty and you have free drinks (sodas & water) in the mini-bar.

But it is well located.
Too bad the rooms are facing the parking.

Reviewed 23 April 2012

This hotel was really nice and great value for money. The hotel is very clean and the staff are very nice. The views of the city are wonderful, the terrace is faultless. The free mini bar was also a lovely extra and the beds are nice and big and very comfortable. The only issue is that they advertise 24 hours room service and this is true but after 11pm it is very limited to cold food, it is just something i would have liked to have known before. The breakfast isn't fantastic but is nice and a good choice. I have stayed in Girona a lot and i would stay here again although i would probably only ever stay at this hotel for one night as it is quite a long walk to the center of the Girona, not a big deal but i wonder fancy it after a nice and large evening meal. The only other thing i can add is that i am very surprised there is no pool, it seems large enough to have one. overall i have no complaints and would stay here again.

Reviewed 2 April 2012

We wished the weather had been a bit better so we could have enjoyed the spectacular terrace overlooking the city! The hotel itself is beautifully sited, and the rooms are large and comfortable with a unique glass wall with a scene of Girona separating the bath and bedroom. Marriott gold and platinum members have free in-ro.om internet, and all guests have free internet access in the lobby and breakfast room/bar areas. Since it was cold and incredibly windy, it made the walk to/from the city seem longer than it was the following beautifully sunny day. My only complaint is the rooms, themselves, do not enjoy the same spectacular views as the public areas.
