This was our first time in Tarragona, and we weanted to have a comfortable hotel near or in the city centre, not far from the old town. This hotel was an excellent choice: comfortable, efficient, fairly new, walking distance to everything important for us. The reception staff did not know the Michelin-rated restaurants in the city.
everything was nice, quiet and clean. 15mins' walk to railway station.
The location was very central and the staff were very helpful. The roof terrace provided a wonderful view. The room was a smokking room as smelled quite strongly of it. There was no gym/the sauna wasnt on and the hottub was empty despite assurance it would all be working.
basic city centre hotel difficult to find initially as it was situated on a very large roundabout and the hotel's signs were not easy to see while driving. Evening meals were not served until 8.30.
facility, cleaness nothing
Location was excellent. Good access to the beach, castle and restaurants. Staff was friendly. The DVD check out program was a nice feature. The bed was just a little firm.
Very nice hotel, very clean, hotel staff extremely helpful, It was very short stay, and we liked everything
The room was fantastic and breakfast was included in the price
Nice room. Easy to find. Close to airport, although we were charged €30 for the Taxi, which seems crazy for a 10 minute trip. Poor selection of TV channels
The hotel is nicely decorated and the rooms are very confortable, specially the bed. The staff is helpfull and they speak fluent English. The room was pretty small.
The free minibar and fitness room w/sauna were great! Hotel is 20 min walking distance to downtown
The hotel was ultra modern, luxurious and clean. The minibar was free! (soft drinks)It was in the centre of town within easy walking distance of the old quarter. Garage facilities.
This was a modern hotel, excellent restaurant, excellent staff who went out of their way to be helpful. Would recommend them highly.
room was comfortable and v clean, free soft drinks minibar was useful for my 13 yr old son. no
The price and the quality provided for it - £70 (paid in advance) including excellent buffet breakfast. Good 40 minutes walk to the Miracle beach - however I believe there were buses to take you there.
Second time we've been as we love it- smart,convenient,stylish,comfortable and very good value!
The rooms we're spacious and well kept. It was 1.5km from the cathedral. Itbwas close to the main shopping drag but pretty far from everything else.
Excellent breakfast & free minibar. Very helpful & polite staff Underground carpark very difficult to get in and out of!
AC was not working well....
An excellent modern hotel set on the outskirts of Tarragona .Very friendly staff and a handy cafe by the foyer for food and drink. The room was a pleasant surprise with an excellent bed and bathroom. If you like jogging there's an excellent path beside the river you can enjoy behind the hotel. A little far out of town for some maybe, personally i prefer this option myself. I got a bus from the train station and after 10 mins. in the Hospital direction there is a stop by the roundabout outside the hotel.
Few requests about internet have been promptly addressed and fixed. I was travelling by car and the hotel was very handy close to the motorway. I was looking for something simple and I've found a very comfortable accomodation.
rather spacious double room, with nice bathroom and AC. it's rather far from city centre to reach on foot. and time spent in public transport is comparable to that when you walk. we enjoyed breakfast at hotel cafe, but the "breakfast room" in basement was a bit unplesant and unfortunately we had there dirty plates and unwashed tomatoes...:-(
Free wifi, calm area, big rooms, sound and light insulation was good, free parking places nearby Not exactly on the city center, breakfast paid was restricted
Friendly people, easy to find WI-FI connection was only partially working: still to be fully implemented. No Hotel parking available.
location, big rooms breakfast
Splendid hotel, large room an good coffee shop next to reception. Parking by the hotel was at first difficult as its a far outside city centre people moved as they finished work so we were abloe to find a space behind the hotel. No restuarant by there is a Wok close by.
Excellent value, easy to find Parking not in same building
Helpful staff A bit too far out, though there are buses.
The staff was very helpful. They understood that we were all trying to pay separately so they allowed us to use different forms of payment for one room. I also liked the large size of the towels It was a little loud. Everything from voices to doors closing echoed into our room
ok for overnight stay but not in a good location good secure paking restaurant is good
location is good for going to the beach and also close to the shops and 3 mintus walk from train station. but if you want to sleep and not parting during the night thr room could be nery noisy as the hotel is just next to the main street. room was very old. no double bed. breakfast very simple and poor. its not a 3 star hotel. at its very best i would give it 1 star.
Nice rooms (although the first one was tiny, but we were switched after the first night and the second one was great), friendly staff, free private parking and wifi. Reasonable price. The hotel address will lead your GPS navigator to the wrong place. Check the location on the map to make sure you'll get there.
The Staff was extremely friendly, the breakfast was continental and the dinner was excellent and the parking was very safe and plentifull during our stay. The satelite TV and the TV set need updating
The hotel is very well located, close to the center of town wich is very attractive. Neat and clean hotel although it isn�t new. I had a very nice stay there. Helpful staff. The Air conditioning was blowing to near the breakfast-buffet table.
good value, close to airport, interesting little city
polite staff card entrance on rooms
Relaxed, informal atmoshpere and helpful staff
It was very spacious and comfortable.
excellent location lack of wifi
location and convenience for the town center and airport. helpful staff.value for money and beautiful room. everything was A1.
Only stayed for one night, so not sure. Very conveniently located in the centre of Reus. Also close to a taxi rank The covers on my bed had holes. The bathroom was old, the bathtub did not drain properly
the room only not possible to get food to eat in the cafeteria at 9.25pm after arrival
Excellent location. Clean and comfortable. Staff helpful and friendly. Not a lot of frills but just right for us. Stayed a day longer, partly due to excellent accommodations. Would be nice to have a vending machine in the hotel.
Difficult to classify your hotel as we only stayed one night, so didn't avail of any facilities, Your restaurant was closed so we had a bar meal which was very poor. We liked the hotel and the staff were very friendly. We also liked Reus, lots of buzz, shops and sunshine. Food disappointing,but maybe this was because the restaurant was closed.
value for money
Spacious and very nice room, 10mins distant from the Reus airport, bus direct to the airport even in the early morning, the bust stop is right in front the hotel.
Staff were extremely helpful and informative. They gave us information about the fiesta which was taking place in the town. It was great fun.
Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms, restaurant in hotel
Easy to drive to the hotel. Own parking garage under the hotel. Great design of the rooms.
The location to the the towncenter was okay. Terrible hotel. They did not provide us the correct reserved room. Airco didn't work. Airport shuttle is an ordinary public transport bus, which you have to pay for additionally. Lousy hotel, not worth the money.
Helpfulness and friendliness of staff. The glass doors for the bathrooms were a bit of a strange thing.
The staff were very helpful and the hotel is in an excellent location to reus airport.
Great staff, great location, great value
stylish decor and very well-positioned to visit the town
Location - pillows very hard and uncomfortable - breakfast expensive and not very nice (much nicer and cheaper in cafe further up the street) - coffee purchased in bar tasted poor quality and expensive - no coffee making facilities in room. Hotel generally lacked warmth, was outdated and not very welcoming.
excellent location and lovely entrance to the hotel we were supposed to have a double bed but had two single beds; some pictures on the walls would be good to create a softer tmosphere.
Great location. large, comfortable bedrooms with a lovely view of the hotel's courtyard and swimming pool.
They allowed my dog to stay and the hotel was close to the old town. They allow dogs at this hotel but the manager was snotty and appeared not to like animals.The room was very outdated and the bath I was unable to use as was worn,rough and rusty.The room was very hot even in October as the air conditioner did not work and a lot of noise from the street when trying to sleep
It's central position.
The hotel is perfectly situated on the town's lovely Rambla by the Mediterranean. We had a view of the sea from our balcony which was much appreciated.
Good hotel,very central,excellant staff
The girls who worked on reception were very nice and accomodating and spoke excellent English. They were the nicest thing about this hotel. The front of the building is located on a good street. It is just over one minute from the most beautiful views of the beach and sea and is perhaps 3 minutes from the roman ruins. About 15 minute walk from the bus station and 7-10 min from the train station. Therefore location is prime. But the views from the back of the hotel were of another building and there was a pub across from our rooms that stayed open until 2.30am. Bins are collected at about mid-night. Rooms are not sound proofed. Rooms are dated and the wardrobes were smelly. Breakfast very expensive given that you can get coffee and crossant in a very nice cafe down the street for €2. I requested a double room with a view of the sea for my parents but were given a twin room with a view of another building .Tarragona is a beautiful, clean town but don't expect too much from the hotels. Not three star in terms of Irish hotels that i have stayed in and over priced for what you get.
The city of Tarragona is lovely so the hotel offers a well placed accommodation with excellent staff and well sized rooms
A good middle of the road family hotel Not enought seating outside and not enough shade when the sun ws very strong
Walls in the building were quite thin and we could hear when our neighbours were speaking loudly or a child was crying.
the food been excellent,near to the beach some waiters unfriendly
It was a convenient location, for travelling to Tarragona, Barcelona, and a nice resort While there was some nice staff the majority were cold and unfriendly, both in the restaurant and reception with quite poor english
I did not like hotel staff
Everything was easy and smooth. No problems or worries. Small and complicated parking.
Good location, first line to the beach, 300 m from aqua park. Sand on the floor of the room, poor cleanliness of the hotel pool, very poor animation (better cancel any then keep what they have in tbe evening), food (same breakfast every day for 12 days, poor selection in the evening - almost no seafood, same pork neck every evening, expensive drinks - 3 euro for small beer and 2 for small water, water not included into to the dinner). Next time will go on breakfasts only and many nice cafes and restaurants around with much better food.
I love the hotel been there for four years now, very frendley polite.
I have stayed there for the last 5 years and I love it.
Seeing Tarragona Right on the square during festival week - Loud music into the morning. Not really a negative but meant for younger crowd. Very very hot - no breeze.
A nightmare.on internet price was 55 euros plus promotionof 50%discount (22 euros) after i saw how z hotel was, checkedr the regular price announced in the hotel it was 22 euros. no entrance, you pass inside a long low class bar all the way to find stairs,no reception,elevator from z 1st floor,no english,very noisy,rooms are corridors(very small n dirty)
location, staff, service, clean and confort place
the views from the room, however not all rooms have the same view. Take a room with views on the placa de font the smell in the gangway
The location The entrance is the same as the cafe-restaurant and last but not least the airconditioning or ventilator lacks.
It was a greate experince! Good price, centrally located; Advise to everyone!
convenient location for old town narrow stair case to rooms
Staffs are nice (although they don't speak English much). Room was clean. Tv in a room. Good location, in the old city area. Great value for the price. It was kind of cold at some night. The wall was thin. No fridge. No amenities like tooth brush or soap. But again, for the price I paid (twenty something euro per night), this is a very good hotel I can recommend!
The accommadation was very satisfactory.Staff and management likewise.Location ideal for exploring the city.Close to beacj and station No lounge/sitting room facilities.
The location and our balcony opened out on to the plaza. Wasnt sure what to expect from a hostel but we stayed in a total of 3 different hotels while in spain and this was 1 of the nicest. Would definately recommend Nothing
Food, services, clean. noisy
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at hotel, the staff at the reception were very helpful. We found that the tables in the dining area were a bit too close to one another and also the satelite tv in room didn't have enough English channels.
The location of the hotel was fantastic There were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room which as self catering meant you had to get up and go out for a drink first thing in the morning.
The chicks at reception are sexy and nice, a rare combination! Breakfast is only till 10.
Only access to rooms was by lift, no staircase. Reception staff nice and polite, resturant staff rude.
The rooms were kept very clean and comfortable but a little tired and out dated. The restaurant was shabby and very noisy and unable to deal with the volume of people efficiently. Restaurant staff were particularly miserable and abrupt but, the food was good and there was a wide selection each day. The pool bar and pool area was kept really clean and the staff there were friendly and helpful, not enough beds around the pool and didn't enjoy the fight with the Russians to get one at 8-30 in the morning! All in all this is not what I would consider a 4 star hotel at all yet they are charging 4 star rates.I also think it is worth mentioning that during our stay only 3 out of the 450 rooms were occupied by non Russian guests!!
Hotel was very nice and clean with ample pool area. Breakfast was very disappointing and would not recomment it as this is an all inclusive hotel, I would not consider this hotel for an all inclusive deal based on the breakfast buffet. La Pinda as a resort was very disapponting. Good bus service which helped. Breakfast was very disappointing. The resort as a whole was very disappointing, with little choice of resturant or night life. Spa break as advertised was just access to the spa and nothing else. I think the spa element in the advertisment was misleading.
very short breakfast\dinner`s time for this big hotel.:(
Calidad precio fabuloso, muy familiar. El servicio impresionante.
Central location, Minbar in room and friendly staff Carpet in room a bit grubby
tidy clean room and generally good facilities no
it was central for all of the city and sights the breakfast
Close to the city centre. There was no toilet brush in the bathroom and internet in the public area was not working always.
Staff were very helpful. Location right across the street from the train station was perfect for my needs. If I have to be critical it was quite noisey (traffic noise), but that is to be expected given its city location.
free internet access room small toilet kept running
Urbis is a 3star hotel,nothing more nothing less. In that case what you pay is what you get would be fair enough as the location is good. I am not a fan of 3 star hotels, but in Tarragona there is not much choice if you want a decent location.
good hotel, central location - can walk to all the site seeing spots. internet did not work :( but they were fixing it.
Very good location. Clean room. Good for budget stay.
Hotel is central, clean and well maintained. I found the staff to be friendly and efficient and they spoke English.
Staff helpful, room clean, location near railroad station and go signage that made it easy to find. The bathroom was so small that the door could not be opened without bumping in to the sink.
Convenient, good location, good breakfast Very basic. Army barracks atmosphere.
The best thing about Catalunya Express is the staff. Very friendly and helpful. Reception is open 24 hours, which is a definite plus. The hotel is fine - good location and clean - but the rooms are small and devoid of personality and charm. If you're planning on spending most of your time out and about then the hotel is a good choice, but it isn't a place that invites hanging out.
The fact that the hotel was in a quiet area. No!
Small Rooms but excellent value for money - would stay again
The hotel was perfect for our short stay in Tarragona. Unfortunately the Catalunya Express was not very accessible for disabled clients, and I found the stairs a problem.
Excellent value for money. Located very close to the train station and just a 5 minute walk to the city centre. The self-serve buffet breakfast had a good selection. The airconditioning did not work.
Great breakfast, as people have said!
Friendly staff, very convenient to walk into centre for shops, restaurants etc. Useful to have free laundry facilities available as we had no balcony for drying. Also good to have free wifi available. Ideal for one or two nights, not sure about a longer stay. No parking facilities but found on street free parking nearby. We experienced a lot of street noise but this could have been due to our stay coinciding with local festval.
Good position, nice and helpful staff
Location on beach. Peace and tranquility -- not a sound in hotel after we went to bed. Access to excellent public transport. Access to international airport. Staff courteous and helpful. The weather was perfect for us and not too hot. With very little modifications the vegetables in particular could be served hot for lunch and dinner. We had a lovely few days and have no complaints. We even managed to spend a day in Barcelona using the excellent public transport system
nicely decorated, friendly staff, close to Port Aventurer theme park Too many old people. Bar area dull
The staff tried really hard to be polite and welcoming even though their grasp of english was poor, the maids were efficient and unobtrusive and overall the hotel was quiet and in a great location for the beach. As it was close to the end of the season (Oct), the entertainment was poor and I think there must have been a problem with the dish washer as it was very hard to obtain a clean plate to dine off in the restaurant. The piped music in the residents lounge was at times overly loud and very repetative, so if the 60's was not your era - take an ipod! It was also very quiet in La Pineda at this time of the season, with few of the local businesses being open so a bus trip into Salou was the order of the day - three trips - three different ticket prices - very frustrating when you go to the trouble of politely asking in Spanish for your tickets!
Friendly staff, good food.
Good location, free public parking near the hotel noisy restaurant and staff not very motivated, free wi-fi just at the bar, had to pay for the remote control (they've returned the money but still ..)
Food is very good for Spain. Quiet guests, which is very important for those who travel with infants. Air condition been switched on at the second day only after several claims. If you want to have a 95% Russian hotel it is yours.
pleasant modern rooms, next to beach, quiet. could do with more choice for evening meal. (chips were the only potato available on all four nights)
Good view from the room, you can see sun rise Big oilfield factory very close to this town, very early check out, deposit for tv control...
The fantastic rooms with a fantastic view of the sea. The staff were very friendly and the new renovations have been done to an excellent standard.
beachside location, good food, rooms clean bright and comfortable. Staff friendly and professional. Lovely hotel and would recommend it for future holidays. bath towels were small and worn thin. No other dislikes.
The staff were really friendly and helpful. The air conditioning unit worked really well. The room description said "balcony" but my room did not have one. The soundproofing to the room next door was poor.
The location was good, room was clean, staff friendly. The bed was very short and too small for 2 people. The air conditioning for the building (outside the building) was very loud (and we asked for a quiet room).
Clean,towels changed on request,friendly greetings by reception and helpful when asked advice or taxi bookings.Good size room and bathroom. Shower had plenty of power but controls were poor,showers should be thermostaticlly controlled for safety.Kettle and maybe toaster would be helpful at breakfast time.
Very central location, practical as comes with a kitchen. Also not far from the beach and train station
Great little hotel in an excellent location on the "new rambla" which is actually quite old. The hotel was within walking distance to the amphitheater, the old town and the Roman forum. Our room was at the front of the hotel with a small balcony overlooking the rambla. The room was in very good shape -- newly redecorated with a great kitchenette and big bathroom. Very pleasant, very clean, and nice to come back to at the end of the day. Absolutely no complaints -- we would highly recommend this hotel for value, location and pleasant staff.
Hotel staff very friendly and hospitable. Ready to aid the guest as much as they can. An excellent location. The room was reasonably well-appointed and clean, but quite small. Nice bathroom of good size, however.
The staff are friendly and helpful, and the location on the Rambla is excellent. The walls are a bit thin, and you can hear people on the stairs outside, as well as running showers in other rooms. Not a major problem, though.
Excellent central Location with very helpful staff.
The location was excellent, you walk out the front door and the market is right there. Also it is within walking distance of all the attractions. The room also was very comfortable and spacious.
Central location, close to everything we wanted.
nice room for reasonable price - optional breakfast all morning long railway not too far away (very noisy) - need transport to get to city centre, nothing to see/do in neighbourhood
The best thing is that I was too busy to spend much of my time there. Perhaps there should be screens on the bathroom windows to keep out the mosquitoes. The room was cold during the autumn night. My colleagues and I will continue our search for a more amicable location to meet our accommodation needs for an upcoming series of trips to Tarragona during the next year.
It was close to the centre of town, and there was free parking. Staff friendly, good place to stay for a night if you are travelling onwards. Small narrow access from the main road, and it was quite difficult to find in the first place. The long and lat co-ordinates were not correct.
Clean and friendy place, the staff is always helpful, excellent location, very comfortable atmosphere. One of the best places I ever stayed in.
cheap and cheerful, no frills, fine for a stop over, don't expect a quality night sleep. Car parking on sight a bonus. there is no fan or a/c. can't leave windows open as lots of mosquito's. i had to remove the bulb from courtyard light to get to sleep, very thin curtains, but this does help you get up early to get back on the road, drive way very narrow and tight.
Helpful, friendly staff and cleanliness
The location was superb and the price amazing. It was the best 1 star hotel I have ever stayed in more like 3 stars. Right in the centre of the old historic part within the old roman Circus. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby. The afternoon is best to see the roman and medieval sites as the coach tours have left!! A taxi is a must from the train station as it is up a steep hill, especially if its hot. On the way back we walked with our cases. The bed was very uncomfortable - very hard. We used the blanket after the first night under the bottom sheet and that was much better
excellent location - excellent meals
The location was excellent, but parking is a real problem. There are no parking facilities. We were told to find space on some nearby streets, but there weren't any. Ended up parking in a public garage that cost 18 Euros per night.
Clean, comfortable, efficient, very good value for the money. I have no real complaints. Staff was efficient but not always friendly. I don't recommend the restaurant.
Good, clean and well located hotel offering high quality at a reasonable price in a tidy city
Very central location, cleanes and interiour of the rooms, WC
Excellent location, really good atmosphere right in the centre of things Parking was very close but very expensive
The location was very nice - you could look down at the square and see all of the people eating, shopping, talking. The room's heating seemed to be stuck permanantly on "high" and we had to keep the balcony doors open. The noise on the square was unbelievably loud with the doors open, making it impossible to sleep soundly.
Location and outlook from room balcony There is almost no soundproofing betweens rooms. Very noisy being able to hear the shower in the next room
