We booked a 2 night weekend break through the hotel's website and breakfast was included in the price, (€8.50 if purchased at the hotel). The hotel is wonderfully situated on the Rambla Nova close to the seafront and the Mediterranean balcony. We were arriving late in the evening during the Sant Magi festival so I emailed the hotel to confirm that they would hold the room and requested a room overlooking the Rambla Nova if possible. They responded promptly to acknowledge our late arrival and when we arrived we were given a room overlooking the Rambla. But this was no ordinary room, we were given an apartment, with separate living room and full sized bathroom with bath and shower over the bath. There was air conditioning in the hallway which made the apartment really comfortable as the heat in the city was oppressive.
There are lots of bars and restaurants along Rambla Nova but we found it more atmospheric to eat in the old town just a few minutes stroll from the hotel. It was the Sant Magi festival and there was entertainment and a real buzz in Placa de la Font which is lined on both sides with tapas bars and restaurants.
We took the little road train around Tarragona which provides a good overview of the city. you can get on and off at any of the 8 stops and there is a stop at the bottom of the Rambla Nova, stop number 7.
Tarragona is a lovely city and our weekend break just gave us a small taste of what it has to offer. We would love to go back when it is a little cooler so we can explore further.
