I was under absolutely no illusions of grandeur with this property but having seen other positive reviews and just wanting somewhere to sleep rather than stay we opted for this hotel.
The good parts are it is in one of the nicest parts of Salou with lovely bars and restaurants (not over crowded tourist horrors) just down the street. The train station is a few minutes walk and the walk down to the each is not a difficult one. It is on a quiet street and the area generally felt safe.
The hotel itself has a great cleaning policy, the maids were in every day with fresh towels. The reception staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is very basic but there is definitely something to eat though I would recommend getting down before 10 as the best of the food has gone after that.
On the down side our bathroom was from around 1980! It was so old and out shower just fell off the wall as soon as you turned it on. We were given a triple room if single beds (we are a married couple!) but didn't complain as figured we probably lucked out with space. The beds were comfortable but more like camp beds. Not a problem for us but larger, more weighty guests may struggle with them perhaps?! The room again was somewhere 1981 with a very bad lick of paint to the wardrobes. This is just aesthetic, and everything worked so as a crash pad fine but the room wasn't as nice as some of the pictures we saw. The only real problem was the noise. As many people have said it just echos down the corridors and you hear EVERYTHING! We were prepared and had ear plugs and we STILL got woken up by people talking loudly and doors slamming. If you are a light sleeper this place is an absolute no go.
This hotel absolutely served it's purpose as a base for us to explore Tarragona and Barcelona (trains are a touch sporadic btw) but just be mindful you will be ok to accept the bad qualities. For how much we paid it was fine.
