Apartment was exactly as advertised and instructions for access were spot on. The stairs were a little tricky with luggage but once inside and seated at the window overlooking the river, we felt completely at home. Watching the ducks and the passersby on the bridges was great and the town itself wonderful for exploring. David went the extra mile to make sure we made it to the train station as the taxi company was deterred by demonstrations taking place. Very much appreciated.
The apartment is in a superb position in the old town - near to all amenities and places of interest. The apartment was very clean , the bed was comfortable and it was lovely to be able to look out of the window over the river while having breakfast.
All in all we were satisfied with our stay there but I do have some constructive criticisms. The apartment is on the third floor up some steep stairs which is something to bear in mind for anybody with mobility issues. The stairwell itself could do with a clean. The shower entrance is very narrow and might pose a problem for some and the shower head holder on the wall was very wobbly and could be replaced for a more functional one. There is a frosted window in the bathroom, next to the toilet, which looks onto the laundry room shared with the apartment opposite - I think the window should perhaps have a blind otherwise one can feel rather exposed especially at night when you need the light on in there. Also an extractor fan would be good. We ate out all the time we were there but, if we'd wanted to cook a meal at the apartment the equipment is quite basic and the crockery is mismatched which isn't really a problem although a few proper wine glasses would be nice.
If you are visiting in the summer, as we did, the air conditioning is excellent and not too noisy and the riverside location means there is not a lot of noise at night.
Perfect... We don't want to say too much as this really is a hidden gem. Without a question, book it. Perfect in all ways for a small family. Massive comfortable bed and a sofa bed separated by Japanese screen. Wonderful view of river... And envy of our family who were staying nearby for a lot more!
We spent two weeks in Girona in November, staying in Riverside A. Previous reviews cover pretty well everything - Bright and airy apartment, perfect for two people (might be a little crowded for any more that that), everything worked well. David's check-in instructions were easy to follow, he provided lots of useful information about restaurants, places to see, hiking trails etc. We walked everywhere. Apartment is located in the old town and close to everything. Loved how quiet it was with the view of the river. Hard to believe you were in a city! We took a taxi from the train station and the driver was surprised we were staying for so long - said we could see everything in four hours...absolutely not true :-) Lots of historical sites, cultural spaces, music, markets, restaurants etc. etc. We would highly recommend this place - except for people with mobility issues, as the apartment is located on the third floor with steep windy stairs (59 steps...)
