We arrived for a short two night stay at this hotel which is a 25 minute bus ride away from the airport then a 5 minute taxi ride up from the centre. The hotel is really nice and very modern. The terrace is wonderful with some great views over the city. It is a 10 minute walk (downhill) to the edge of the old town which is the other side of the old wall. Ask reception for a map. There is a very small local bar half way which is fine for drinks and snacks on the climb back. The old wall is a really nice walk. You can access it at any of the ends that you can see on the map. Great for photo opportunities.
The old town is lovely to walk around with some nice shops and bars. There are lots of small streets to wander around; the architecture is a real treat.
Back to the hotel. Lovely bedroom, very comfortable, fresh and very clean. Sadly no view!! The crazy thing about this place is there is no pool. There is enough room within the grounds to easily build an Olympic sized pool but no, some bright spark forgot to tell the architect!! So picture our day, up after a good night sleep in a fab room. A walk down at 9:30 to the old town, walking and shopping and snacking until the shops close around 2pm and the heat starts to take its toll. A hot but steady walk back up to the lovely hotel to chill out for 3 hours or so but wait, no pool!! No leisure facilities at all. A lovely terrace but it’s really hot and on a Saturday afternoon in 30+oC heat there is nobody sat out there.
I would recommend Girona for a short break. I would definitely recommend this lovely hotel especially if you can grab a good rate. But if it had a small pool I would be happy to stay longer and base myself here to explore the region.
