Girona, Spain – Apartament Torregirona
This apartment is inside a residential building with the owner staying right next door. There are only 2 apartments on the same floor.
The building is next to the train station and less than 10 minutes’ walk away from the Old Town. Cafes, restaurants, bakeries and supermarkets are nearby so it was really convenient.
Even though the apartment was really quiet, I was awoken by the train in the morning. BUT that was because I am a very light sleeper. Also because I had to open the window slightly since the heater got too warm for me. My travelling companions had no issues at all.
The house was tastefully done up, clean and had was fully equipped with everything a “real house” needed. It looked exactly like the photos they posted on their website. There were 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, both with heaters installed – perfect for us in March when the weather was still cold. We even had great views of the sunset from the living room!
The owners were really friendly and helpful even though there was slight language barrier between us but everything worked out well.
We booked the apartment through Booking.com for the first night for €139 (including car park for a night). However, we managed to get a cheaper rate through the owner himself for the second night when we decided to extend our stay. The location is perfect for us since we wouldn’t have been comfortable driving around the narrow streets in the Old Town. The private carpark in the basement was ideal. If you do not wish to be paying an arm and a leg for staying in the Old Town of Girona, Apartament Torregirona will be a good choice!
