My GPS had a hard time finding this one. If you are coming in a vehicle and you don't know the city, it is a bit of a struggle. You have to enter the old city from the ocean side: go down Rambla Vella to the roundabout, come back and take the first right, then the second street on your...

Little rooms, but clean and good beds. Get a front room, much nicer than those viewing back. Friendly service, if only few persons speak english, but thats not a problem.No fridge, but you have drinks near in many good restaurants.

We stayed at the Placa de la font in Nov 2013 and found it to be perfect for our vacation in Tarrragona. This hotel is located right at the heart of the historic old city. Facing a square that bustles with restaurants, the hotel has rooms that are just about appropriate in size, sparkling clean bathrooms and very friendly staff....

This time we managed to get a room at the front with a balcony, far nicer than the back rooms to be able to look out and see the world going by. The bed was comfortable and very clean room/bathroom. Went for the weekend and misplaced my coat on first evening, found in cupboard when we put our cases their...

Well, this hotel deserves more than 1 star ! Location is top, on a lively plaza, at the entrance of the old city, near a parking where you can get 50% discount. Rooms are clean and bathrooms were renewed not so long ago. let's stop and rush there

Location, location, location. Right on a little plaza within walking distance of all the sights. Tarragona has a rich history and a wonderful archeological museum. Room was a little cramped. Couldn't get WiFi in room. It was a bit hard to find and our GPS tried to drive us through an ancient Roman wall! Be sure and have good directions.

Not what we expected at all. The room was nice with a balcony overlooking the square - which the hotel shows photos of with restaurants and bars and a nice place to eat out in the evening. What we got was all the chairs/tables cleared away and a huge sound stage erected at one end of the square. All evening...

We picked this hotel on the basis of other reviews and weren't disappointed. The location is great and although the party in the square seems to go on all night (we were there on a Friday and Saturday and the Festival of St Tecla was starting, so maybe it was busier than usual) the room was sufficiently soundproofed to get...

One of the few hotels actually in the old town, all the sights are on the doorstep. It's set overlooking a large square where, at peak time, there must be 1000 people eating and drinking, but if you get a room overlooking the square the double-glazing effectively blocks the street noise and it's a great view for people watchers. Room...

We choose this site based on recent reviews and overall were delighted with the location - close to the historic part of the city and easy to walk to most attractions! Friendly staff and modern interior which was quiet pleasant. However, the beds were extremely hard and uncomfortable and the aircon did not work! The hotel sits above a busy...
