“Very good hotel for the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2011

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...

Incredibly tiny, unclean rooms. Rude staff. Excellent breakfast though...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2010

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.

The Hotel Ubis 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 also adjacent to the bustling covered market, where there is a colourful array of fresh food. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped, the beds comfortable and the breakfasts generous. The hotel's Cocula restaurant is excellent, offering a changing fixed-price menu both at lunchtime and in the evening, using fresh produce from the market.
We were due to stay for four nights, but were stranded when our return flight was cancelled due to the Icelandic volcanic eruption. The hotel staff were very sympathetic and helpful, and, due to a late cancellation, were able to find an extra room for us, which was a great relief. They were also helpful in other ways, providing advice, printing off itineraries, etc.
We would definitely recommend the Hotel Urbis to other visitors.

We stayed at this hotel on Decembre 2007. We found it very nice, located in the city centre, we could get everywhere on foot: coliseum, cathedral...
Maybe rooms were a little bit small, I would say as frequent in Europe.
Breakfast buffet was also good, with fresh sliced fruits, several different breads, toasts, saucisses... and a little bit of everything.
Reception staff were very friendly.
Nice restaurants and places to see on the area.
Next to the city market, with an underground parking, wich makes easy to keep the car, but we found place on the street without paying anything.
If a go to Tarragona again, I will go back at the same hotel.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2008

Stayed for 1 night and the hotel offered a special parking rate at the nearby underground garage for hotel guest. The lobby was modern but the decor of the hotel room was stuck in the 60's with visible age on its furniture and fixtures. Nonetheless, the room was clean and just adequate considering the rate we paid. Breakfast was a very pleasant surprise with a spread much much wider than expected for a hotel in this range or for the price we paid.

There was an internet station which the guest could use for free. Front desk was extremely helpful when we asked for directions on the day we checked out.

  • Liked — great value breakfast spread
  • Disliked — aged rooms
