“Fabulous location and excellent value”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

Stayed for 1 night to explore Tarragona and could not fault the hotel for this purpose. Location perfect, full of atmosphere, very clean and comfortable. Would stay there again if we revisit Tarragona.........a great place to visit.

Room Tip: choose a room with a vie of the square

Stayed one night to see Tarragona during a visit to Barcelona. (Tarragona is well worth a detour to see). Stayed in the 60 Euro square view room.

The best feature of this hotel is the location. So central and the square it is on has lot of bars and restuarants to eat on in the evening.

The hotel itself wasn't overly exciting. The room and bed were fine, everything was clean. It's in line with the price range,

Also had breakfast in their restuarant sitting in the square in the morning which was very nice.

Stayed here for a few days with the other half. The location is great, extremily central although not easy to find without sat nav as the actual square can only be got to on the one way system. We parked the car in the public car park which is under the square with a pedestrian exit that comes up right by the front of the hotel. As previous people have said the car park entrance and exits have some mean bends in them, definitely slow 1st gear and we paid 25 Euros per 24 hours so it quickly adds up.

The room itself was ok. We had a juliette balcony and a view over the square which was nice but the double bed was distinctly on the small size for two tallish northern europeans. The TV was mounted basically over a odd drinks-cabinet style piece of furniture (used it as a dresser but was never sure that was what it was supposed to be). Having read previous reviews we chose to have breakfast elsewhere so we had 2 x 5 mins interactions with the staff whilst checking in and out. There was WIFI access but it was very weak, even in the lobby and the signal often dropped off.

Basically an ok hotel, brilliant location, expensive car parking but this isn't run by the hotel (but maybe they could come to some arrangement?) not exactly ideal but guess you pretty much get what you pay for and there aren't that many hotels in the centre of Tarragona, glad we were only there 2 nights though, my back couldn't have managed more!

Room Tip: Think you must accept paying a little more to people watch at the front of the hotel.

This hotel has a great location, convenient public parking (at a hefty price) and friendly staff. The rooms were clean, the television was oddly placed (really up high). However, the odd thing was that this hotel closes at around midnight and you have to bother some really old man to open the door for you, and you can see that you're pissing him off when you keep going in and out past midnight.

Reviewed 18 September 2011

As previous reviewers have remarked this hotel is ideal for a short stay. The rooms are small but very clean and beds were comfortable. Nice staff with some English. Do pay a few more euros for a view over the square but DON'T waste euros by eating at the restaurants around the square - there are plenty of more modestly priced places in the surrounding streets. The double glazing very efficiently cut out the street sound but the aircon is a) restricted to two hour bursts and b) doesn't work outside certain hours. Breakfast is suited to the local custom - a coffee and a nibble. If you want bacon and eggs head to the greasy spoons on the Rambla Vella. If you arrive by train please be warned that it's a long and steep haul with bags to the old town and... if you're flying out from Reus airport do not believe anyone who tells you there's an airport bus. It does not exist! Take a taxi and keep your blood pressure down.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front (overlooking the square) have a little balcony and great views. Ask for one on th...

The hotel is right in the centre of the city so all the sights are in easy walking distance. The square rocks at night. The room was very comfortable. Only minus points are the breakfast and the fact that wifi is only available in the lobby.
