Hotel SB Ciutat de Tarragona
Ranked #6 of 20 Hotels in Tarragona
Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for two nights for a weekend break. Good size room, modern decor, power shower. Fab breakfast choice. Friendly and helpful staff. Located right in the middle of Tarragona. 15 minutes easy walk up the Rambla to the view over the amphitheatre and the Med. 10 mins to the old town. Above the bus station so easy to get about to local beaches and beyond. We had a good time here.

Good location. Is just a nice 10 minute stroll through La Rambla all they way to downtwon. If your flying from Barcelona, the hotel is next to the bus station, and a bus drives you directly to the airport.

Our first impressions were overall good. We then discovered there were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room and also were not provided when asked for. The bar closed at 11.00pm and we were asked to leave with our drinks and go up to our rooms or the salon on the first floor. Which was deserted and dark, terrible atmosphere, unhappy staff. The manager didn't even come to see us when we tried to complain. Ruined our stay in the city.

Room Tip: Don't bother!

10-15 minutes walk to the old town (nice stroll down rambla nova with the main market and small cafes to tempt you) and 15min walk to serallo (port with great seafood options), this hotel was convenient, with ample underground parking (€13.50/night or if you book via the hotel they have promos with free parking included as we got).it backs onto the bus station, where you can catch a bus to barcelona,airport or other day trip sites eg Montblanc (historic town about 45mins out of tarragona).
Really helpful staff- we thought we had lost our car key at the airport, and they tracked it down for us successfully. The staff made this business style hotel more personal, and welcoming, and they gave a lot of good recommendations for things to do/where to eat etc.
We were upgraded to a bigger room on arrival. Big comfy bed, spacious room, great shower. Wifi worked in the room after we had activated it first in the lobby. Some noise from the traffic outside (asked for a front facing room as suggested in other reviews), but not intrusive (we are used to countryside village quiet).
Pool- tiny, cold, hot tub also cold, so didn't dare venture in.
Not for someone looking for an intimate or luxurious hotel, but you don't mind an easy stroll into town,and are looking for a comfortable base to explore this lovely region of Spain I would definitely recommend this hotel, and would stay again

This hotel is a practical choice if travelling to Tarragona. It is next to the Bus Station and has a Taxi rank right outside.
The hotel is comfortable and clean. Good for Business or for sightseeing.
The breakfast room is large with a selection of standard breakfast items.
Pool & Jacuzzi on the roof for Summer travel is a bonus. (I travelled in May and didnt get to test it on this occasion)

Room was exactly as described and the facilities were very clean and modern. Breakfast was good and there were a choice of hot and cold options, including pastries, cereals and cooked food.
We used the roof terrace a few times which was good for sunbathing, however both the pool and jacuzzi were ice cold so it was difficult to be in them for more than a few seconds. We stayed 5 nights in total and had no issues with noise from either traffic or other people staying in the hotel. All in all it was a very good stay at the hotel.

Stayed at the hotel for one night in May 2013. Rooms are of a good size with air conditioning, but a lot of traffic noise.There is no coffee maker in the room but has free wifi. The hotel is just next to the bus station but a little far away from the main sights.
