This hotel was perfectly located on the Placa de la Font which is in the centre of the Old Town in Tarragona.
I arrived to the hotel quite late in the evening and had no issues with finding it, checking in and getting to my room. The rooms are quite simple but have all the essentials (en suite, tv, aircon...bed) and I definitely recommend booking a balcony room with a view of the Placa de la Font. You would think having a balcony would mean more noise but it was very quiet with the balcony door closed - no disruption at all. The only thing I would say is that some may find the bed a little small especially if sharing with someone - I think it is a double rather than a king or queen.
The staff are friendly and very helpful. I had no trouble with accessing the free WIFI (in the reception/restaurant only) and the staff were more than helpful when trying to sort out a broken plug adapter (unfortunately they didn't manage to find me one but that was only after ringing/speaking to local shops and searching the hotel!). Oh and don't worry if you come back to the hotel late in the evening to see it all 'locked up' - there is a porter on duty and will let you in.
The hotel itself is pretty small with a combined reception/bar/restaurant area with some tables outside (perfect in the warm weather and for people watching with a drink). It's furnished/decorated in a modern style (think perspex chairs and white 'leather' in the bar and chunky wicker furniture in the reception) and there is a nice touch to the rooms with the picture/painting of a part of the local area on the wall.
Being located on the Placa de la Font means you are in the hub of the Old Town - lots of bars, restaurants and cafes with people socialising all around the clock. You are also right in the middle of the area that contains the Roman ruins, sites and Cathedral; great for any sightseeing. Tarragona is quite small so you can navigate your way round pretty quickly after a few days.
One of the main reasons I booked a room here (apart from the location) was that the hotel was in the cheap end of the price spectrum but still ranked VERY high on the list of hotels for the area. I was very happy with my decision and will go back to this hotel on my own, with friends or family at some point.
I hope your stay is as good as mine - enjoy Tarragona!
