        Clean room; quite a decent price range; close to train station; left luggage facilities

        Street noise very loud all night

      • Couple
        7.0

        A bit worn up, but good value for the money. Ac (a box in the corner of the room) was very noisy, even when turned off. Breakfast was a typical spanish breakfast. Parked the car just around the corner, for free. Free wifi also a plus.

      • Older travelers

        Staff are very friendly. Room is clean. Breakfast was quite good. Good internet. I enjoyed staying there. Need to train station if you want to go to barcelona

        Staff do not know english very good. But they will help you.

      • Couple

        Free Wifi and continental buffet breakfast included in the cheap price, can't really be disputed. Shower worked well after some shoddy experiences with French hotels. Laundry facilities in the hotel as well.

        You get what you pay for. Very old saggy beds but not as uncomfortable as I expected. The staff were like wardens patrolling the halls and looking into the breakfast room constantly, clearly making sure that everyone was heeding the 'removal of food from this room is forbidden' sign. It's obviously a converted nursing home or similar so it's quite sterile. But none of this is particularly concerning. For a quick, easy accommodation, and somewhere to crash cheaply at night this is quite good. Just as long as you know what you're in for

        very comfortable room, great breakfast, short way from railway station

      • Single

        The hotel is wery close to railway station, only 1-2 minuts, which is very convenient to discover other places of Catalunia. Beach is not so far neither, not more that 10 minuts.

        Breakfast is not so good as it announced, actually it is not real buffet, mainly continental.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        Value for money, good location close to the station.

      • Couple
        7.4

        Great location, right aside the train station. They offer free safety boxes, kind small tough, but it's OK to store documents. The staff looks small, we've only seen three people, but they all were very kindly. Rooms are clean and organized. Bed is nice even for a 6.1 ft 240 lbs guy like me. The bathroom is small, but the shower is really good with hot water.

        When we got to the breakfast, almost everything was over. We had to ask the staff to replenish things up. The coffee machine wasn't working, but they offered a Nespresso on other room with different kinds of blends, which was nice. Free of charge, of course. Besides that everything was fine. FWIW, we're a 28-year couple from Brazil traveling around EU. We spend most of the days walking through the cities, so all we need is a silent place with nice and clean bed and shower. No fancy stuff. If it fits your profile, this hotel is definitely a good pick.

      • Couple

        Free Wifi in room.Breakfast was ok - but no different from any other Spanish hotel breakfast.

        Very budget hotel, the low end of the 2 star range. No lift, and no offer to help with bags on arrival from staff. Bedroom very basic indeed with a very uncomfortable bed which left me with bruises in the shape of the bed springs. I would recommend asking for a twin bedded room rather than a double as bed was quite small. Walls very thin, and area was quite dubious to say the least. Bathroom (actually a shower room) would challenge even the most adept in small spaces......very very small indeed.In my view not worth the money, I think you can do much much better by paying possibly a few euros more.

        Great breakfast, as people have said!

      • Couple
        9.2

        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.

      • Couple
        6.6

        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.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Small Rooms but excellent value for money - would stay again

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        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.

      • Couple
        9.2

        Clean big room! Good Wifi available! Staff super friendly! Breaky included and less than a miniute walk to train station! Easy access to restaurants and central tarragona!
