Without doubt the worst restaurant we have experienced in many years of visiting Spanish cities. Location and service were good but the food was appalling. The gazpacho came straight out a carton as another reviewer commented. The paella was tasteless and crusty as if it had been under a heat lamp for a while. My son had lamb with fries,...

I arrived at Placa de la Font to a small lobby which didn't have much seating or room for relaxation. There was no delay at reception on checking in. The room was fine I got a decent sleep on the first floor. Although it was early in the week when I stayed so it may be noisier at weekends. I...

This hotel has an absolutely gorgeous location (our room was overlooking the central square in the beautiful old centre of Tarragona) - it was really easy to get to the ancient and medieval sites we wanted to visit in the old town, as well as the nearby train station to transport us to Barcelona! The rooms were very clean and...

Hotel Placa de la Font is a very good hotel in the “budget” category. It’s location is on the main square of the town and there is an underground parking 10 meters from the hotel. It’s also very close to the sea should you wish to walk there (though it isn’t a nice walk). The room wasn’t luxurious by any...

Good budget hotel in central part of the Roman old town, within walking distance of the main sights. On a busy square but not particularly noisy. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful.

This hotel was recommended to us by a friend. We knew it was going to be basic but were drawn to the fact that it was in a very central location. First impression when we walked through the door was the sheer delight of the receptionist - 'Melissa'. She was so bubbly, enthusiastic and helpful, immediately putting a smile on...

This small hotel is in easy walking distance of the train station and beach in the old town. The room was very clean and had great wifi. My room over-looked the busy square, but with the windows closed (very quiet air conditioning on), I couldn't hear any noise. The only toiletries provided were small sachets of bath gel, but I...

Clean and adequate hotel, right beside car park and Roman circus, for £60 per night. Old city is largely for pedestrians, so park car and walk (but get hotel to stamp your parking ticket for big discount).

I'm not sure the rule of real estate applies to hotels. While the location could not be better for this charming hotel, the mattress could be. It is very hard. The room with a view you love becomes the room with the noises you are not as fond of. We actually like being "in the center of things." We didn't...
