AC Hotel Tarragona
Ranked #5 of 20 Hotels in Tarragona
Reviewed 8 July 2011

I was there on a business trip, hotel is not downtown, is 15 min walk from the heart of the city.

Room are the classical AC hotel style, all the same without soul. Small flat tv with poor choice of international tv channels, Minibar is free but almost empty (just one coke) wifi in the room is an extra 6euros 1h or 12euros 24hrs.

Wifi is free in the lobby, to use the pc in the lobby is also an extra.

The biggest disappointment was the breakfast buffet. Poor, i think one of the poorest i've seen in ages. No eggs, just one kind of brioches (just with chocolade), no one asking if i want a cappuccino or a tea.

Definitely not a 4star

This hotel was in a great location minutes from the sea. Rooms very comfortable with a fridge, bath, and balcony to oversee people on their evening stroll.
Staff were most helpful with great restaurant recommendations and tips. The foyer had a bijou bar and seating area where locals enjoyed a morning coffee or evening martini Rosso. An amazing heritage town with loads of charm. Would go back again.

Been there one night in july 2011. Classic Marriot hotel, 15 minutes by walk from downtown and close to a nice park. Good service and clean rooms. Worth the price, but breakfast could be better.

Our daughter is living in Tarragona for the summer and her initial hotel experience at another hotel was poor - dirty rooms, poor service. We found this hotel on Tripadvisor and noted the excellent reviews but still doubted the information given the price. We were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is very clean, modern and comfortable. Two bonuses - we arrived from the Barcelona airport via bus and we were pleased to find that the bus station is less than a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The other is the staff - so very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: Back rooms are noiseless with best view

We stayed in the AC Tarragona for two nights in June 2011. We had booked through LateRooms and got the hotel for around 50 GBP per night for our seventh floor double room despite this being close to "high" season.

The hotel is not ideally situated, particularly for visitors to the Old Town, but it serves as a useful hub to other parts of Tarragona. However, the addition of a free mini bar, with soft drinks and water that other hotels would charge 10 EUR or more for, and reasonable parking charges of circa 12 EUR meant this was a budget stay in a very well appointed hotel. The only minor disappointment was a very average contintental breakfast for 12 EUR per person - this was particularly drab with a poor selection of food.

As you would expect, bar and restaurant charges are high but there are plenty alternatives on the same street. Wi-fi is free in the lobby but internet access in the rooms has to be purchased in 1 or 24 hour packages.

A word of advice for anyone travelling by car - the hotel car park is one of the smallest I've ever had the misfortune to try and park in. If you are bringing anything larger than a mid-sized car then prepare for lots of manoeuvring around pillars and walls.

We were travelling through Spain and had had a few bad experiences so when my wife saw that it only cost 60-80 euros (from memory) I thought I would be in trouble again. But, we was very pleasantly surprised. It presents as a business/function hotel so it is 10-25 minutes walk to the old town, but its clean, modern, comfortable bed, the staff are friendly and even the drinks in the mini bar are free, yes no catches they are free :-) Other than the walk, def no negatives.

A great hotel and excellent value. Not too far from the old town. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our stay that we extended it. Nice to have free minibar for waters etc

Room Tip: Ask for a park view, better than the street.
