The hotel is in the neighbourhood of a nice beach and a promenade with bars. It is very local. The rooms are well equiped and the beds are excellent. The hotel is not easy to find, because there is no indication. It has an ideal position if you arrive by rail, but then you should know that you leave the station on the beach site in the direction of Barcelona and then take the third street to the beach.
All ok (nothing special), but they should have a wireless network covering also the rooms, not only the restaurant
Location and the fact that it's new and not run down Air conditioner not cold enough, and this is the second time this has happened. However, Internet in my room worked this time although it was unreliable. The shower is so small it really is too bad. It is such a nice hotel. Food did not taste as good as before. I think that they have a new chef. Next time I'll definately drive to the coast for seafood and tapas
The hotel was extremely comfortable and the staff was very friendly and accomodating. I liked everything
Friendly, clean and modern hotel with excellent facilities... all at a good price. Lack of English speaking staff in Restaurant. There was however an English version of the menu available.
The food at the restaurant is presented nicely in a pleasant environment. Very nice establishment. The beds are hard which may suit some but personally I prefer a softer matress. I wish that there were more english tv channels. And tv access to services f. ex. wake-up service, billling info, pay pr. view. Lastly, I've stayed at the hotel atleast 3 times annd have never been able to log onto the Internet from my room. I usually give up and access my mail from the central lobby area.
Quality of the rooms
value for money
Staff were extremely helpful and informative. They gave us information about the fiesta which was taking place in the town. It was great fun.
Easy to drive to the hotel. Own parking garage under the hotel. Great design of the rooms.
Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms, restaurant in 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.
Helpfulness and friendliness of staff. The glass doors for the bathrooms were a bit of a strange thing.
Great staff, great location, great value
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.
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.
The staff were very helpful and the hotel is in an excellent location to reus airport.
ok for overnight stay but not in a good location good secure paking restaurant is good
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
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.
facility, cleaness nothing
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.
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.
everything was nice, quiet and clean. 15mins' walk to railway station.
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
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.
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.
spacious and well kept room and bath, nice surroundings, good restaurant attached, easy to get to
The general level of cleanliness and the kind and helpful staff. Nothing to complain about
every thing nothing
Nice rooms. Clean, large and modern with good room service. Adjustable king size beds. Friendly staff and a buffet breakfast with a large choice. Very nice resturant close by. Plenty of room around the hotel and swimming pool and under cover free parking. We would go there again. Gps location using the hotel address took us into an old part of town about a km from the hotel. The hotel is actually on the main road to Tarragona. Only the desk attendant could speak english. No english menus or instructions.
it is a calm area, the rrom was big enough and the bed we just love them they can be adjusted automatically for head or legs comfort it was nice
Small but pleasant and clean hotel, nice pool and garden area. Restaurant for evening dinner is located away from hotel and offers a special menu for hotel guests which we found to be very limited choice.
Hotel rating below quality of accommodation. 2nd time we have stayed. Improvement on good hotel.
Quietness, size of the bed..and bathtub in the bathroom No
Excellent value, easy to find Parking not in same building
Helpful staff A bit too far out, though there are buses.
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.
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.
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...:-(
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
Friendly people, easy to find WI-FI connection was only partially working: still to be fully implemented. No Hotel parking available.
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
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 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
location, staff, service, clean and confort place
convenient location for old town narrow stair case to rooms
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
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)
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.
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.
It was a greate experince! Good price, centrally located; Advise to everyone!
The location The entrance is the same as the cafe-restaurant and last but not least the airconditioning or ventilator lacks.
The free minibar and fitness room w/sauna were great! Hotel is 20 min walking distance to downtown
Excellent breakfast & free minibar. Very helpful & polite staff Underground carpark very difficult to get in and out of!
room was comfortable and v clean, free soft drinks minibar was useful for my 13 yr old son. no
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 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.
AC was not working well....
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.
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 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.
This was a modern hotel, excellent restaurant, excellent staff who went out of their way to be helpful. Would recommend them highly.
Second time we've been as we love it- smart,convenient,stylish,comfortable and very good value!
The city of Tarragona is lovely so the hotel offers a well placed accommodation with excellent staff and well sized rooms
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 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.
stylish decor and very well-positioned to visit the town
Good hotel,very central,excellant staff
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
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.
It's central position.
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.
Great location. large, comfortable bedrooms with a lovely view of the hotel's courtyard and swimming pool.
excellent location lack of wifi
Relaxed, informal atmoshpere and helpful staff
polite staff card entrance on rooms
It was very spacious and comfortable.
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
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.
good value, close to airport, interesting little city
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.
the room only not possible to get food to eat in the cafeteria at 9.25pm after arrival
location and convenience for the town center and airport. helpful staff.value for money and beautiful room. everything was A1.
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.
tidy clean room and generally good facilities no
Hotel is central, clean and well maintained. I found the staff to be friendly and efficient and they spoke English.
Central location, Minbar in room and friendly staff Carpet in room a bit grubby
it was central for all of the city and sights the breakfast
Very good location. Clean room. Good for budget stay.
free internet access room small toilet kept running
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.
good hotel, central location - can walk to all the site seeing spots. internet did not work :( but they were fixing it.
Close to the city centre. There was no toilet brush in the bathroom and internet in the public area was not working always.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
Good, clean and well located hotel offering high quality at a reasonable price in a tidy city
Helpful, friendly staff and cleanliness
excellent location - excellent meals
the friendliness of staff and locals, cleanliness, and excellent service n/a
The staff is very friendly; there is a nice library with free internet access and the Spa treatments are great. Easy location, close to Reus airport The minibar was empty; the gym is just a bike and a mirror with some weights ... not really worth to called a gym.
Excellent hotel close to Port Aventura No bar facility,Lack of public transport in the area
Comfort, location, mini kitchen facility. Fridge for keeping the wine cool. Street parking available but availability sometimes a little variable.
The hotel was new, warm athmosphere, rooms were very clean, quiet and the breakfast was excellent! It was included in the price and it had a wide selection of continental and spanish foods. It is nice when you get up in the morning at a hotel abroad, you go for breakfast, and instead of two choices of cereals or a greasy english breakfast (adapted to narrow-minded english tourists that don't want to try new things) you find a huge selection of lovely foods!
nice clean rooms . Friendly Staff The food in the Restaurant was not very good
The comfort of the room, the friendliness of all the staff from the moment we arrived, very welcoming.
The room size is quite OK, the room was very clean, it gives you the oportunity to cook in your room, hence saving some money, but on the other hand the food from the restaurant is pretty good, and the menus quite affordable! It is 5 to 8 mins away (by car) from Port Aventura. Great free SPA!! The only tiny bit is that the cleaning ladies did not change the toilet paper. Hopefully a one-off oversight...
The hotel and staff were excellent in a very peaceful place, it was the ideal place for a romantic and relaxing weekend break for myself & my partner. The range on the menu could be wider and altered from week to week.
The hotel is modern and beautiful. The rooms are huge and well-appointed. The pool area is fantastic. n/a
Excellent central Location with very helpful staff.
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 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.
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.
Very central location, practical as comes with a kitchen. Also not far from the beach and train station
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.
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 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.
Central location, close to everything we wanted.
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.
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.
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.
Great breakfast, as people have said!
Small Rooms but excellent value for money - would stay again
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.
The fact that the hotel was in a quiet area. No!
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
Convenient, good location, good breakfast Very basic. Army barracks atmosphere.
