This is a solid hotel, of the kind to be found in all western cities, but which opens out onto a beautiful city nearby. The price seemed excellent; but worth noting that hotels in the Old Town put you right in amongst the best tourist areas.

The 4 star Hotel Gran Ultonia in Girona Spain is located right in Girona city centre , a privileged environment to visit …More
Does what it suggests -- provides basic accommodation with no frills ; good spacious room, helped , of course by having the bed as the only furniture ,bar a small plastic stool.
Breakfast was ok, as continental breakfasts go -- we had to use the better cafe next door in the non-budget Ibis as ours was closed -- good value as we got ours at our budget price -- Euros 4.5 ,as opposed to the non-budget price of 9.0 ---difference was a nicer environment , and extras like ham and cheese ; our cafe was a bit 'hostel like'.
Biggest negative : no soap dispenser in the room -- they provide 2 shower gel sachets and 2 bath gel sachets ( but no bath) --- so assuming you use the sachets for having a shower, you either don't wash your hands after using the facilities, or as we did, used our own shower gel . I've stayed in hotels all over the world, some budget, and I can't remember ever not having soap ; I know it's budget, but that's unacceptable --- no we didn't complain.
It's more than 0.5km from centre of town, but we needed the walk
This hotel was easy to find, and a convenient, short drive away from the city of Girona. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The best part was the wonderful breakfast. The bed was fairly comfortable, although the room was a little chilly, and we were told that the heat hadn't been turned on for the season yet. But later we got a call that the heat was working, and the room seemed to warm up somewhat. We didn't try the sauna and pool, so we can't comment on them. The only drawback was the noise--the walls were very thin. Also, our fridge didn't work, and the floor hadn't been mopped in a while. Overall, I would recommend.

Catalonia’s second city after Barcelona, Gerona is the gateway to the Costa Brava although overlooked by most visitors. Its historic centre is compact and atmospheric, with narrow cobbled streets and steep steps. Highlights are the intriguing Jewish Museum, the magnificent cathedral and beautifully preserved Arab baths. Excellent restaurants, bars and shopping complete an enjoyable excursion.
