“Good overall hotel”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Just spent 3 nights at this hotel as part of a Riviera travel tour of Barcelona and highlights of Catalonia tour. The hotel is very well situated for strolling into Tarragona, where there are lots of good restaurants. The hotel bedroom was very spacious, and the shower and air conditioning were both very efficient. Staff friendly, and the only small niggle was that the cooked breakfast food was cold, but overall would thoroughly recommend the hotel

This hotel is located in the centre of town within walking distance of tourist attractions.

Room was clean and spacious. Double glazing was effective in keeping out traffic noise from the street outside. Only problem was noise from the room above: with tiled floors noise of chair being dragged above was annoying.

There is a small swimming pool on the roof but it was unheated and very cold. Likewise a "hot" tub was unheated and too cold to sit in. Shame.

Good choice of food at breakfast and a spacious breakfast room.

Overall, a good place to stay.

A nice welcome from the receptionist and we found ourselves on the 4th floor but no view again. The room was big and spacious and had air con which was needed as the temperature was still a hot 28 degrees. It also had a mini bar which we used as a fridge. We did not hear any noise during our stay and breakfast was very good but you had to be quick to get the fried eggs, ther was also plenty of cold fare on offer.
My one moan was that, on the second night we booked for dinner and found it was not in the restaurant but in the cafe bar, it was one of the worst meals ever, the 3 courses came out one after the other and we were done in 30 minutes, i thought the whole idea in these countries to take it nice and slow. However we would stay here again but would not eat.

Stayed at this hotel for three nights as part of a Riviera travel tour.
Really nice hotel bedroom large with large double bed (not two singles pushed together as you sometimes get).
Nice powerful shower ( it takes a long time for the water to get hot). The shower gel /shampoo comes from dispenser on wall - a better idea than small sachets. Hair dryer also included. 
Flat screen TV. Mini bar fridge in room containing snacks and drinks. I did not buy anything so not sure of costs - we used it for cooling our water. 
Room overlooks large roundabout outside hotel but we had no problem with noise. Hotel is centrally located within a few minutes walk of the town square.
The staff were friendly and speak English. The drinks are really cheap in the ground floor bar e.g 2 glasses wine 3.4 euro with complimentary mixed nuts . 
We did not have a meal at the hotel but breakfasts were very good, self service with bacon eggs sausages etc and lots of hams cheeses croissants etc. 
Ice machine in corridor (did not use).

Just returned from 3 nights in Tarragona on Riviera trip
LOCATION; on Place Imperial Tarraco (the old name for Tarragonna). It is at the top of Rambla Nova; just about the smartest street with plenty of cafes and shops .Good centre from which to explore Tarragona
FACILITIES Very clean modern and well furnished. Friendly helpful staff. Bedroom large and facilities good. No tea making facilities. Breakfast good. WI-FI was free but could not get it in our room on 3rd floor. It was ok in reception.
LOCAL SHOPS Supermarket on opposite corner of square "OpenCor" sells usual needs including alcohol.
FOOD AND DRINK Plenty of cafes and restaurants around for all tastes, A lot of fixed price menus, e.g. 2 or 3 courses for about £12 sometimes includes a drink. Very good square for restaurants is Place de la Font just off Rambla Vella on edge of the old town., recommend Cappuccino and La Pigot for dinner.
THINGS TO SEE Loads (the hotel has a guide map and staff will help with what to see); Old town and Cathedral area well worth a visit.

Altogether a lovely town and a good hotel; big tourist area so do keep your bags safe.

Really clean room. Pool and gym isn't amazing but the whole hotel was clean and luxurious. Front desk staff were a tiny unhelpful and seemed like they did not want to be there. Maids were excellent and always cleaning though. Perfect for a few days stay in a lovely town

The central bus station of "Plana" sits behind the hotel- hear nothing inside the hotel. We arrived for a meeting, directly from Barcelona air port, terminal 1 (nearly 13e p. person one way, could have a round trip ticket) and slept 4 nights. The hotel is modern, room is big. Good a.c, comfortable double bed. Breakfast has a wide selection of choices. Including fresh tomatoes, pineapple, melon and watermelon, orange etc. Cold meats, cheese, cereal, juice, hot drinks, eggs. The hotel is in a walking distance from the major sites, 15 min. to the end of Rambla Nova next the beach. We liked the seperation between the shower area and the sink but disliked the too short glass portin on the bath tub... We used the coputers in the lobby. Their location is not the best on day time (the screen is too lightened from the outside). Haven't tried the hotel restaurant, but there are many around for 7-10e (or more) per 1 combo meals.

Room Tip: 4th floor is very quiet
