“Great location, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

An aparthotel is a good solution for all those who want to be on their own and prepare their breakfast or meals but also enjoy the services of a hotel. Alexandra offers a well-equipped kitchenette in a spacious room and friendly 24-h-service. The best: it is located right in the centre of Tarragona, closy to the old town, the "balcony of the sea" etc. We had a room to the backyard, so it was quiet. We enjoyed our stay very much! There is even an outdoor pool, but as it was winter, we couldn't test it....;-)

I would endorse almost everything in the revue by MijoSpain - and even the grouting has been attended to (!) though some of the plaster is still scuffed in Room 303, very quiet at the back. Rooms at the front have balconies overlooking the Rambla Nova, which some people may prefer, but it might be noisier at times. Our week in October 2011 was extremely enjoyable: great location, smiley helpful staff and decent facilities in the room, though a second armchair would be appreciated by couples. Excellent value for money and we would even recommend it to friends.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

I have stayed in this place twice now and I think it´s great - for location, price, cleanliness, friendliness of staff and general facilities.
I booked very late, with a range of questions and requests and Noelia in reception did her absolute best to accommodate us and to answer my questions. I speak Spanish but it seems like all the reception staff speak English as well. It is quiet (I only ever stayed at the back though), good bedlinen and pillows, light and airy. Plenty of neighbours (at the back as it faces other flats on all sides) but I haven´t heard any noisiness or felt overlooked by them. The location is pretty unbeatable as far as I am concerned.
If I have to make one less than positive comment is that rooms 304 and 303 (the only ones I know) are pretty scuffed and could do with someone coming in for a day to sort out the grouting in the bathroom and the places on corners where the paint and the plaster has come off. Perhaps an autumn job, after the summer rush season?

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2011

My husband and I stayed here in late June for two nights. The staff was very nice and spoke English. The hotel is clean and breakfast is tasty and plentiful. It was nice to have a refrigerator and kitchenette in the room for snacks and chilled wine. The location on the Rambla Nova is convenient to a lot of sites. My only complaint is that our room needed a fresh coat of paint and the shower curtain could stand to be replaced. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed our stay.

Central hotel close to all the best parts of Tarragona. We stayed 4 nights in March and got an apartment on the top floor. It was a good size with a double bed, wardrobes small kitchen, a couple of armchairs and a large balcony. The staff where helpful and made everything easy.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2010

Decent size bedroom and bathroom,minus points shower was a bit eratic and could be dangerous for children.I know it's an English thing but a kettle and toaster would go down well.
Reception staff did their job pleasantly and friendly maid kept our room spotless with a plentiful supply of clean towels,we were there for a week so this was important.
The hotel is well situated on the Rambla Nova but we had no trouble with noise during our stay.
The hotel has a small plunge pool and whilst adequate for a quick cooling dip it offers no more.
I would stay at this hotel again and it should fit the bill for one night stays or longer.
