“Lovely, but wait a minute....no pool?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2012

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.

Stayed with wife and daughter for two nights, no breakfast (better price downtown, 10min walk). Extra bed for kid supplied at slight extra charge. Very clean, modern style big room and bathroom - excellent value for money. Would stay here again. Town centre close nearby, hotel has lots of parking. Staff polite and proper.

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.
