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.
Good hotel,very central,excellant staff
The city of Tarragona is lovely so the hotel offers a well placed accommodation with excellent staff and well sized rooms
Great location. large, comfortable bedrooms with a lovely view of the hotel's courtyard and swimming pool.
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 Hotel generally lacked warmth, was outdated and not very welcoming.
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.
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 They allow dogs at this hotel but the manager was snotty and appeared not to like animals.The room was very outdated and the bath I was unable to use as was worn,rough and rusty.The room was very hot even in October as the air conditioner did not work and a lot of noise from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
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.
It's central position.
Central location, close to everything we wanted.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excellent central Location with very helpful staff.
Very central location, practical as comes with a kitchen. Also not far from the beach and train station
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.
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.
My friend and I wanted to go to Tarragona after a week in Barcelona to see the historical buildings and also to relax. Husa Imperial was perfect for our needs. Clean, excellent location, and friendly staff.
If you are staying here be sure to book a "sea view" room. being able to look out into the ocean was the best part of our stay as there is not much to do or see in the city, it is a smaller city. room was cleaned everyday, but could have been cleaned better. the staff was very friendly but didnt tell us much about the hotel when we checked in.. somtimes its nice to know where breakfast will be, where the pool is, where the elevators are ext.. however we were just handed our key and had to figure the rest out on out own.
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
Good, clean and well located hotel offering high quality at a reasonable price in a tidy city
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.
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.
Very central location, cleanes and interiour of the rooms, WC
Helpful, friendly staff and cleanliness
Excellent location, really good atmosphere right in the centre of things Parking was very close but very expensive
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
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.
it was central for all of the city and sights the breakfast
Central location, Minbar in room and friendly staff Carpet in room a bit grubby
good hotel, central location - can walk to all the site seeing spots. internet did not work :( but they were fixing it.
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.
Very good location. Clean room. Good for budget stay.
free internet access room small toilet kept running
Close to the city centre. There was no toilet brush in the bathroom and internet in the public area was not working always.
Hotel is central, clean and well maintained. I found the staff to be friendly and efficient and they spoke English.
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.
tidy clean room and generally good facilities no
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
location, staff, service, clean and confort place
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.
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!
convenient location for old town narrow stair case to rooms
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!
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.
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
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)
Convenient, good location, good breakfast Very basic. Army barracks atmosphere.
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.
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.
Great breakfast, as people have said!
Good position, nice and helpful staff
The fact that the hotel was in a quiet area. No!
Small Rooms but excellent value for money - would stay again
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 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.
