“Very good location, but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

Apart from the location (close to the sea and to the historical quarter) and spacious rooms, almost everything else in this hotel is disappointing: for example, cramped bathrooms and bland and mediocre breakfasts (the croissants were always soggy). Hardly deserves its 3-star rating.

The entrance lobby maybe raises your expectations, however this is a basic hotel with updated decor patched on to its Executive rooms. Some aspects feel minimal i.e. no tea/coffee in room, no iron/ironing board in room, shower only (no bath) in the bathroom and self-service uncooked continental breakfast. I could hear the next room's phone vibrate in the morning for their alarm. The WiFi is not reliable in the room, or maybe that was just my bad luck. On the other hand - it feels clean, the location is excellent and if you want an iron you easily get one from reception if you just ask. I would be happy to recommend this hotel and stay there again.

This was our 4th stay at Hotel Lauria out of 5 trips to Tarragona mainly for the wonderful Festa Santa Tecla in September. The location especially, but also the hotel size, value and satisfactory standard of rooms, service and breakfast make it our regular choice.

We had an un-refurbished room on the second floor facing onto the pool area, with a partial sea-view. Not bad, but definitely in need of up-grading. The refurbished rooms look good and we would probably opt for one of them next time if there is still the same degree of comfort differential.

Tarragona is a fantastic city to visit anytime of the year. It has everything most people could ever wish for but without the tourist tack. Then there is Festa Santa Tecla!!!. This is a video of the Traca Final that happens on the Rambla Nova right outside the Hotel Lauria after midnight and brings the festivities to an end: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzgWeR0pNvQ

Room Tip: Up-graded rooms are worth considering at 15 euros extra per night. Upper floor rooms either facing e...

We have stayed here a few times on our driving trips to and from Spain. The upgraded rooms are worth the extra and the ones with a view over the port are the best. Reception are very friendly. The car park is tight but that is the case in most places in Spain. Everything you want is right on the doorstep - bars, restaurants, shops, culture and sea. A stone's throw from the hotel is the restaurant pastificcio - worth a visit and not far to stagger back!

Room Tip: go for an upgraded room.

This hotel was a great surprise for the price! Very clean, a bit outdated but perfect location in the center of tarragona. 5mn from the seafront, a bit more to go down to the beach as it is near the old town. Less than 10mn from the old town and little places. Very friendly staff. Highly recommended...

Great location in the centre of Tarragona. Room - on second floor facing a side street -was clean enough but old, tired and like something out of the 1950s. Receptionist claimed the free wifi was available in the rooms - not true only works on the ground floor. Impossible to sleep with noise from a bar next door to hotel - so moved at 2AM to an equally dated but quiet room on ground floor next to the pool. Price [around 55 euros] was ok for the location but were I to stay again would want one of the renovated rooms. some of the parking spaces along the Rambla in front of the hotel are free but the hotel [pay] car park is a 10 minute walk away

This hotel is very nice. Rooms are a bit outdated but comfortable, however not sound proof. Each room (as far as I could see) has its own balcony - try and get one overlooking the large pool. Dont expect a selection of white wine if this is what you drink. The location is PERFECT!
