Hotel SB Ciutat de Tarragona

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a nice hotel in a good central location in Tarragona. The rooms are very well equipped with mini bar, TV, AC, good free WiFi etc. The staff are friendly, there's a good restaurant (the Mare Nostrum) in which we had a nice dinner, which also hosts the buffet breakfast with a good selection of both continental and hot traditional items. There is also a bar, which was alright. On the roof, there's a small pool, gym and sauna too. I was most impressed by just how quiet our room was. We had a room at the front of the hotel on the fifth floor and It was absolutely silent all night, ensuring a great sleep. For exploring, it is only about ten minute's walk from the picturesque old town and seafront, which is very convenient. Altogether very good.

The reception staff leaves the impression they are not interested in the client. The bill was presented wrong: four rooms and the breakfast was booked all on one room. For a business trip that is not acceptable. Furthermore only the guy who booked was allowed to pay all rooms. Who do these people think they are? I did not question the bill because I did not like the tone I was talked to. I will just not visit this hotel again.

A nice hotel in a perfect location in the center of Tarragona. Big and clean rooms. Friendly and service minded staff. However, the breakfast needs to improve and was not up the an acceptable standard.

Average hotel with a good location. Ok breakfast buffé but the breakfast and the gym open too late for business trips. Close by the old town and a very nice walk. Tarragona is a very nice place to visit.

Friendly staff on reception. Large room with comfortable beds. Fridge in the room but no tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Towels rather old and thin. Pool area not very inviting. Would look better with some plants and greenery. Sauna was not turned on. The jacuzzi was cold. We were told that it is always cold and is not heated. Very disappointed as we didn't want to swim in the cold pool. The down stairs cafe was very nice and made good strong coffee. Even had a reasonably priced dinner of pizza and salad there. Too far to walk from the station with luggage so had to get a taxi to and from the hotel. Next to the bus station but there was no bus to Sitges which was our next destination.

We spent three nights here at the time of the fiesta Santa Tecla. Situated at the top of the Rambla Nova, it is within easy walking of the old town and the processions and fireworks etc. Also, during the day one can amble to the sea edge with many cafes en route. Tarragona is a lovely city - much smaller than Barcelona. The week of the Santa Tecla is packed with events culminating with the human towers. If you don't mind heaving crowds and the usual Spanish/Catalan ignorance of health and safety, then this is a great experience. We enjoyed dinner in the hotel at amazing prices - £17 euro for the menu, which in any city centre hotel is great vale. Also all the drinks and snacks were reasonable priced with no add-ons. I recommend it.

A pleasant large hotel, centrally located in the main square with its own parking. Good modern rooms with all facilities. Great king sized bed with a fabulous bathroom. Plenty of choice within 15 minutes for bars and dinner.

The hotel is well placed and within easy walking distance of the town. It has a cafeteria on the ground floor, restaurant on the first floor, a gym and swimming pool on the top floor. If all the bedrooms were the same as ours then they are great. Large, modern, and clean. The bed was kingsize and very comfortable. We were on the 4th floor and overlooked the main road and a beautiful roundabout with a fountain and a childrens park on it. The double glazing kept out the traffic noise. Thoroughly recommended.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights as part of an organised trip. Room was spacious and clean. Bed very comfortable. Bathroom good. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast is buffet style with good range of cold and hot food. Ate one meal in restaurant which was disappointing and certainly not 4* quality. Location is good with all points of interest within walking distance. Hop on, hop off road train stops outside hotel.

We stayed for one night on our way back home towards France. The hotel is set on a roundabout and is about 15 minutes walk to the old part. A modern hotel but the room was a bit basic, standard room, although it did have a kettle for drinks. There is a rooftop swimming pool but we didn't use it as we had little time. Breakfast was good. Reception staff were helpful when we couldn't open the safe. There is car parking. The hotel is next to a bus station but we didn't experience any noise.
