We stayed here after getting the train from Barcelona -the station is round the corner from hotel and the nice beach-restaurants are very close. The Hotel is very clean and buffet breakfast was super. Gabriella on reception was very welcoming and kind.Our room was adequate and clean, shower room small but functional.No outlook from the windows just backs of apartments which are above the Hotel(quite common in Spain) we didnt come here to sit in the room so not a problem. The main shopping area is high up lots of steps but there are outside escalators all the way up! A nice quiet break after busy Barcelona!

We had a triple room with 3 single beds as 3 ladies travelling together. Room was tight but bathroom was large. Hotel is central. Very clean but basic. Breakfast is ok. Good value. There is only one flight of stairs to all rooms but NO LIFT. which is a problem if u have lots of luggage or large cases. We found Tarragona very nice sedate town. Made a change from crowded Barcelona. A visit to the towns Mercado is a must.

We were driving down to Morocco and had to stop due to a mechanical issue, we pulled into Tarragon and checked out the sta-nav accommodation and this hotel was the closest so we booked in for one night. Doesn't look much from the outside but it was everything we wanted / needed, helpful and pleasant stafff, clean and quite in the bedroom and a sufficient breakfast in the morning. At the very affordable price its a no brainer.

The hotel's location is great. Some of the advantages: It is next to the train station where you can take the train to Salou or Barcelona etc. and at a walking distance from the city centre. The beach is also very close (a 5 minutes walk). It is quiet during the day and during the night and the bed is comfy so you won't have any trouble getting a good night sleep. Some of the drawbacks The air conditioning wasn't working very well and the shower is very tiny and cramped. Not bad at all but you should take this into consideration. It is very clean and the staff is super friendly. The breakfast is not fancy but you'll find a little bit of everything. All in all the experience was great and if you know what to expect you won't be disappointed. You can not ask for more at this price.

+)very close to the train station and on a walking distance to the touristic area (about 5 minutes walking and a lot of stairs to climb to Balcón del Mediterráneo, or 5-10 minutes to the beach). Comfortable bed and pillows. Very good breakfast with a lot of choice for food and drinks. -) Imposible to sleep without good ear plugs because you will hear everything the neighbors speak or every car or noise in the street. small room, especially the bathroom and the shower area.
