“Hotel Better than expected”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

Booked hotel night before travelled across from Tortosa, had booked minmum 4 star hotels throughout road trip and Hotel Astari although a 3 star unit came across well in reviews.
Hotel although a little worn in places was better than expected, well located with only a short stroll 10 mins into centre of town, ideal for working off food eaten!
Very Clean and well presented, Staff very helpful and friendly.

We stayed here for 1 night with a group of 50 scolars. Luxury rooms, good noise isolation.Good breakfast with very good coffee! You have to take your coach to the city centre. Coach parking near the hotel is no problem( in the autumn).

We had 3 nights in Tarragona last October, and were so beguiled by it, decided to come back for 4 nights this time. Last years' hotel was unsatisfactory, and as this one was about 30% cheaper we were somewhat apprehensive, especially when allocated room 405, which was the subject of a poor review 2 years ago, I now find. However, we were then given a choice of two more, and chose 106, which turned out to be a gem. Overlooking the swimming pool of some nearby apartments, it had a partial sea view, but more importantly was more spacious than 405, with a small ante-room on entering, and a fairly large bedroom kept spotlessly clean, with a bathroom with bath, shower and bidet, nice toiletries and plentiful supply of towels. The air conditioning tended to be noisy but was effective.Disappointingly, the Grundig flat screen TV had no English language channels, but the odd American or British film was undubbed. The crucial difference from 405 is that it had block wood floors, which can be dicey if the people above are clompers, buth this didn't happen. For the price at this time of year it is a steal.I suggest you would be well off with any corner room, ie 106, 206 etc, until all the carpeted rooms are refurbished in the near future.
The other plus point was the pool area: large clean pool, various matched sun loungers, and a drinks and eating area with chairs and sofas. Well worthy of 4 stars.Finally, the manageress Rosa was engaging and incredibly helpful in giving information about her home city. She is certainly the best we've ever encountered. We didn't take breakfast ( we never do) but it is only a 10 minute walk to the roundabout at the foot of the (old) Ramblas, albeit uphill, and the bars and restaurants. Rosa can tell you of a short cut, but the steps are so numerous and steep that she's probably lost a few clients to heart attacks on the way.The Placa de la Forum with the Roman wall is lovely for a quiet drink or meal, and seems to be cheaper than the more spacious and lively Placa De La Font just below it.
The hotels in Tarragona don't seem to be as impressive as the place, but I would have no hesitation in coming back here.

Room Tip: A corner one with block wood floors would be best all round.

great value , a hotel that would put many 4 stars to shame . Just a 10 min walk to the old town with all its history and a further 5 to the main shopping areas. Our room was city facing and was very large with a full size bathroom. Food in the restaurant is good , staff are very helpful and the pool and surrounding area is well kept , all in all a great place to stay.

I've stayed at a few hotels in Tarragona in the last few years and this one is easily the best so far. Not being in the centre of town is ideal; its quiet on a night, whereas anywhere near the Rambla means noise! Its only a few minutes walk up the hill to the old town and a 10/15 minute stroll into the centre so it is very convenient. Its also a short walk in the other direction to the beach.

The staff are great, pleasant, good english, and the breakfasts are very good with a wide range of everything from really nice fresh fruit to cooked food. The hotel is in two halves of an older and newer section. The rooms in the older section could with a bit of updating but the bathrooms are excellent and clean, and the room service is reliable. They can cater no problem for families and beds are good, firm and a good size. There is a good sized pool too. If there is one criticism, its that smoking should not be allowed around the pool; it is almost exclusively used by smokers as their very own outdoor smoking area and it makes for a non-too pleasant area to hang out and eat, drink or swim! The management need to sort that one; there is plenty of space elsewhere for the smokers to pollute the atmosphere!

All-in-all, it is very good and we will be back.

We spent 11 nights at the hotel and had a wonderful time. The hotel is a bit tatty in places but the room was spacious and clean and bedding and towels replaced daily. There was air conditioning which worked well. The people on reception were very helpful and provided us with a plug adaptor having brought the wrong one! The breakfast is excellent and well worth having. We did not need to eat again until the evening. There snacks were good but the lunch / evening menu was very limited so we generally ate out. The location of the hotel means that it is about a 10 to 15 minute walk in to town. All in all a great time.

Room Tip: We booked sea / pool view which are at the back of the hotel and therefore quiet

Stayed here for a week during Sant Magi 2013. Very pleasant and as cheap a place as we found for that week up and down the coast.
Room was small but to be fair we're used to aparthotels for a week long holidays. Room was cleaned every day and staff were friendly. We didn't eat here but spent plenty of time in the comfortable and relaxed pool area. 2 nice beaches a ten minute walk in either direction and a 10 minute walk to the old town. Would recommend.

Room Tip: Nicer to face the pool area than the street!
