Got put up in this hotel after our flight was cancelled by Ryan Air. The staff were excellent and very helpful after a very stressful situation. The hotel was very clean and wifi in all areas including the bedrooms which was amazing for us as we had to sort out how we were going to get back home to the... More

This hotel is a 15 minutes walk far from the city centre, at the end of the long rambla that cuts tarragona. The personnel is really nice and kind, breakfast is ok and the rooms are nice. In a strategical position for the hospital and university. The only Downside is that there are strong lights on the adjacent square, so... More

We stayed here to save driving into Barcelona late at night and it was perfectly decent and good value for money. Nice clean rooms and friendly staff plus a decent little bar opposite.We are not likely to be passing but if we were we would definitely go back.

This hotel is ok but nothing more. It's convenient, and if you get a room at the top overlooking the boulevard, you'll have a splendid view. Shame there is no balcony or floor-length windows by which to enjoy it. The hoovering in our room left a lot to be desired. We found a toe-nail cutting in the hall, and enough... More

As has been mentioned by others, this hotel offers great value for money. Our room on the top floor was comfortable and clean. Service was very helpful, certainly by finding my shoes that I had forgotten in the room when checking out. The city center is 20' away on foot. We were lucky enough to find a free spot for... More

If you're looking for a reasonably priced, decent quality hotel in Tarragona then you could do a lot worse. It's a good 15-20 minute walk from the train station/old town, but it's not an unpleasant walk and it is straight down the main boulevard so it'd be pretty hard to get lost. The hotel itself does everything it says on... More

We didn't expect that it will be so good! Due to some change in our vacation plans we booked this hotel only 2 weeks before the arrival, so we haven't a big variety of choices. But all was fine - nice clean quiet room, wifi, free parking (it was a special bonus for booking on-line). Breakfast was simple, but with... More

I don't like ranting but I have to be honest. We Didn't enjoy our stay. Lets start with the negatives: - Extremely noisy Maids, want to lie into 11am? - No hope with the sound of scraping beds being moved about from next door and the rooms above, while beds are being changed. I also had to ask reception for... More

A very clean hotel with friendly staff. Basic Restaurant food but good value. Free WiFi but was very slow. We found the air conditioning a bit noisy (constant hummm) which I was surprised about for a modern hotel. Underground car parking available but at €11 per day. Street parking is free and the hotel is in a quiet, clean area.
