Parador de Tortosa4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The hotel is a development/restoration of a castle fortress at the top of an extremely steep hill overlooking the town of Tortosa. Wonderful views of the mountains and across the River Ebro. Room was generous sized with good bathroom and a little balcony with a brilliant view. Good food, friendly staff, nice pool and we enjoyed a very pleasant two nights here.
This was our last Parador stay nearing the completion of our one month tour of Spain and Portugal. We were fortunate to get a complementary upgrade to one of the two room suites - thank you. The room had an outside balcony area with table and chairs offering views onto the Ebro River and town of Tortosa below. A minor let down was the bed - although this was a 4-poster the size was rather small. There is an out door pool which is accessible by stair only - so potentially a problem for those less able to negotiate stair cases. The pool size and surrounding sun terrace areas are excellent - again providing commanding views onto the town and surrounding countryside below. The walk into town takes around 15 to 20 minutes - this is all downhill (so coming back means negotiating uphill pathways). There is ample parking. The restaurant is excellent. We dined there both evenings. The menu selection is adequate offering a sampling of local dishes as well as more traditional fare. The breakfast buffet (served in a separate location) is again very good - though getting a decent coffee was oddly problematic. The coffee (both from machine and table served) was disappointing. Something to do with the local water - perhaps? Would we consider coming back? Definitely.
Stayed several nights. The location is spectacular, a walled fortress above the city and river. Views great in all directions. Staff helpful and friendly. Room was comfortable, with a small balcony overlooking part of the walled city. Wi-Fi was a bit slow. We did not take the breakfast, but went each morning down into town. Be sure to check out the market alongside the river.
Beautiful location with great views over the city. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Nice pool. Nice breakfast. Evening dining also good. Plenty of parking and very easy to find the hotel. Will stay here again.
This Parador is really special for me, I have been coming here for the past 3 years, the location, layout, friendlyness is superb and my stays here are always very relaxed and enjoyable. The entrance driving up through that impressive archway is unique.
Parador picked for its location. Spectacular views over the river and historic city . Our expectations were fully met.Good welcome on arrival and room was comfortable.Our room over looked the city but some rooms overlook the car park. Staff in the restaurant looked after us well the food was excellent and we appreciated the lesson Spanish. Bar meals were also excellent.All in all an excellent experience.
Located in a castle at the top of the town with beautiful views of the town and the Ebro valley. Checking in and out was friendly and efficient. Our room had a small balcony overlooking the town. Wifi worked fine in the room but not on the balcony. Took some time to find the bar, which is on the other side of the courtyard and the restaurant is on the first floor. The dinner menu offered locally produced ingredients. Although service was average, the meal was good. Good selection at breakfast in an historic setting.
We have stayed at a number of Paradores in recent years, this one at Tortosa was not one of the best. There's a strange sewer like smell that lingers from time to time in the reception area and was very strong in the first room we were allocated. The staff were friendly and efficient, and the food was very good. Beds were hard and the rooms were a little tired.Would I go back? No. Is it worth a visit? Difficult to say since the town was closed for a local holiday when we visited.
I would recommend you stay here - we had a superior room with Balcony and a fantastic view of the mountains. The room was large but the air con didn't work brilliantly so we had the window open for most of the night. However it was quiet so don't affect sleep too much. The old town is steeped in history and has old buildings dating from roman times to when the moors occupied Spain. There is the beautiful river Ebro too. The food for dinner was exquisite.
What a beautiful castle with such a fantastic view over the town and cathedral. Difficult to park, too many cars badly parked. We were given a room the furthest possible from the reception and even though it overlooked the 2nd car park, there was no shortcut to get to the carpark. Took us 10 minutes every time to get to the carpark from our room. Staff not particularly helpful nor friendly. Dinner (in a beautiful huge room) and breakfast average. Something was missing to make our one night stay (onto another parador) a memorable experience, don't quite know what. No atmosphere, in spite of the magnificent building. No soul, no warmth, no feeling and the pool was only open from 10 to 7 I think, so we were unable to use it unfortunately. Why open so late and close so early in full summer season?
