Would like to spend 4 days in Tarragona late March.
We need a hotel very close to the railway station.
I can recomend Hotel Placa de la Font.
If you do book there, ask for a room at the front with a view of the square, rooms at the back look onto a narrow alleyway and building right in front of you!
I also liked Hotel Plaça del Font
But I wouldn't say its "very close to the railway station"
Its within walking distance though ( about a 10 minute walk if I remember right ) .Edited: 06 March 2011, 21:41
I'm a bit late to this. I would probably not want to spend 4 days near the railway station, assuming there are any hotels nearby. You've a steep climb to most of the interesting bits of Tarragona and the area is not hugely attractive, because of the railway line. I'd also recommend Hotel Placa de la Font. We're hoping to stay there again in September.
10 minutes walk - maybe - with bags perhaps a little longer, but mainly downhill. We got a taxi. Seem to remember it was €6 or €7.
"Tarragona is not that interesting ..." - it is if you know when to go, Debbie :)
Thanks to everyone for their input.
have booked Placa de la Font.
I would recommend Tarragona if you have a couple of days to kill.
Try for a hotel in the old town - very atmospheric.
The old town is very compact, thus very easy to get around.
Have a great time in spain.
