Hotel Urbis Centre
Ranked #16 of 20 Hotels in Tarragona
Reviewed 23 July 2011

I stayed herewith my husband and 2 kids. The location is very good, It is basic, which is fine. You're not going to stay in a hotel for your whole holiday though are you? It is very affordable. The restaurant is very good. We enjoyed it very much. It is better than all the other 3* hotels in the area. This hotel will not disappoint you at all! The lobby had a computer which was really helpful. We will definitely be back!!!

Hotel Urbis is well-located, close to both the Rambla Nova and the Roman Forum, and within easy walking distance of all Tarragona's sights, shops and monuments. It is adjacent to the covered market. The Rooms have free WiFi, good hot water showers, big flat screen TV. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped, the beds comfortable and the breakfasts generous. The hotel's restaurant is excellent, and offered us a good vegetarian Pealla (famous dish of Tarragona) for dinner. The hotel staffs are very sympathetic and helpful in providing advice. We would definitely recommend the Hotel Urbis to other visitors looking for a basic no frills hotel, close to the Roman ruins and other tourist attractions.

Room Tip: Prefer the top floor rooms facing the street

This hotel is for people looking for a basic no frills hotel, close to the Roman ruins and other tourist attractions.

Pros: location, decent and FREE wifi, good hot water showers, room size decent, big flatscreen TV, two blocks away from parking garages that the hotel has deals with

Cons: Standard ugly hotel decor, narrow corridors, you can hear your neighbors flush the toilet and worse, watch TV because their flatscreen is mounted on the wall behind your head.

We opted out of breakfast because we figured we could find any amount of better deals in Tarragona. There is an awesome Tapas place just in front of the hotel, and a great morning market with a mindboggling array of fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood, meat and other eatables.

I would recommend this to people looking for a basic, cheap option.

I agree with the previous review. A good 3 star hotel for the money. It was comfortable, good amenities, good restaurant and very helpful staff.
The best part was the location. We could walk everywhere. Parking lot was very convienent.
I would recommend hotel for comfort, location and price.

Hotel Urbis is very close to most Tarragona attractions. It has a good deal with a parking located one block away (15 euros per day). Even though the parking spaces are a bit small, it is a fair option as you will not need the car in town. Front desk staff is very helpful and warm. Rooms are quite big, with furniture that looks a little bit updated but OK. Bathroom is also big, it has not many amenities but is far better than other 3* hotels in Spain.
The hotel's restaurant is very good, we enjoyed a very nice supper and a fantastic breakfast. Hotel Urbis is an affordable lodging that will not disappoint...

Our family of 2 parents and 2 teenage boys stayed in one room with 4 twin beds and a bathroom. We paid extra for the breakfast buffet and enjoyed the variety of food options offered.
Pros: The room was adequate, but was an internal room so the only view was off an air well in the center of the building. The room had 2 different areas, each with 2 beds and a TV. We were grateful for the air conditioning—a must in July! Lobby had a computer (though it was slow) with internet for guests. We walked to the hotel from the train station with our small wheeled luggage and it took about 15-20 minutes.
Cons: Room was not ready at check-in time which meant rearranging our site-seeing schedule.
