We were a young couple traveling. We lived in the standard double room. The room was quite small, but tidy, breakfast was basic. Hotel is near the rail station, but quiet enough. But Tarragona city is really worth to visit!

Very convenient for the train station, and overall great value for money. Breakfast very good for a budget place, with nice espresso coffee. 10 minutes' walk to the main attractions, so even if the immediate surroundings aren't the nicest this isn't a big problem. If you don't feel like splashing out and don't mind a small room, then this is a great option.

We were at the hotel in Aug 2-3, 2011 and it is a good hotel with comfortable rooms. I do recommend this hotel and would stay again. Location of the hotel was a short distance to the shops and restaurants.

Very nice and close to the sea and rwy station. We stayed in DBL there for a night only, but we liked it very much. As well as the town itself. Small, cosy and quiet. Good luck to you!

A clean room, comfortable bed and adequate facilities. A good breakfast buffet included in the very reasonable rate. Helpful receptionists on arrival and departure. Easy walking-distance to the train-station. Only minus-point: A triple set of stairs to get to the reception area. Not so easy for older guests with luggage.

A good basic hotel if you don't want to share with others. Small, but sufficient ensuite + TV & airconditioning (although noisy) was an added bonus. Located close to train station, although surrounding area noisy at night (as I found most of towns in Spain) & a bit of a 'dodgy' area. Easy walking distance to main street, museums and beach.

This hotel was ideal for our 1 night stay and was in an excellent location, close to the train station and walking distance from the port, old town and historic sites. Only dissapointment was that there was no lift in the hotel and to reach the hotels reception you must climb a flight of stairs which can be difficult with heavy cases! Our air conditioning also broke during the night which made our stay slightly uncomfortable. Apart from this, would highly recommend this hotel for its location and price! Tarragona is a lovely city well worth exploring, we wish we could have stayed another few nights!

Caro per quello che è. La colazione non è inclusa. E' fuori dal centro di Barcellona, ma dall'hotel a piedi in un'ora lungo il mare si arriva. Le finestre sono sigillate per notivi di sicurezza ed in camera al ritorno dopo la colazione c'è, ovviamente, odoe di chiuso!
