We stayed at the AC Hotel Tarrgona in April 2014 for 4 nights on a short city break.
The hotel is approx 20 mins ride/30 euros taxi ride from Tarragona airport. It is about 5 minutes walk into the modern city centre, and about 10-15 walk to the ancient city area. 5 minutes walk away from the park and 10 minutes to the nearest shopping mall.
The hotel is an fairly modern building, and is well signposted. The foyer/reception is spacious, well presented. Check-in staff were polite, friendly, friendly, spoke excellent English, and were REALLY helpful - WELL DONE!.
The room was a good size, and was obviously fairly new and modern. Room was well furnished, clean and comfortable; the only concerns we had were no lock on the bathroom door (!), which was just a frosted glass pane - a bit unnerving to be honest! Bed and sleep quality excellent. Good quality complimentary toiletries, a modern styled bathroom, shower AND bath - and everything was clean and tidy, with everything working! Plenty of lovely thick clean towels - WELL DONE!
TV was digital, good size, decent range of channels.
Now for the grizzles - very minor ones:
- view from the room non-existent, straight out on to another wall of the hotel
- slight drain smell from the shower on occasion
- CHARGE FOR WI-FI INTERNET IN THE ROOM! In this day and age?!! Wake up Marriot - your competitors offer this for FREE! Having said that, there was free wi-fi in the foyer, along with free coffee and pastries!
- price of food, not bad but not great either - especially when you can walk out of the hotel and 2 minutes away there is a great cafe with excellent food at half the price!
Checkout out was fast and efficient.
As a base to visit Tarragona this was fantastic. I would stay here again. On the whole, I can recommend this hotel.
Decent sized clean rooms
Good sleep quality
Strange bathroom doors and no locks!
NO FREE WI-FI IN ROOMS!
Cost of food, esp.breakfast - you can get cheaper options in cafes outside
