We stayed in May in the parador in Tortosa. It formed part of a trip along different Parador hotels. The parador in Tortosa is nice. Good and comfortable rooms with a nice bathroom and very quite located. Also the view from your room is nice. They have a nice bar with outside terrace for an appetitive , a good restaurant and a very good buffet breakfast. The hotel is on walking distance from the town.

We stayed here twice, driving from and to Barcelona during a month in Spain. Parador Tortosa is most pleasant. It's a wonderful building in a spectacular location. The staff were uniformly helpful and courteous, from reception to dining room/cafe to accommodation. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We had dinner three times, each was very good. We also enjoyed the breakfast room, which has marvellous views. Free parking is a bonus. The walk in to the city centre takes about 20 minutes and is first-rate, alongside the River Ebro. In summary, an excellent place to stay.

We have stayed four times ar the Tortosa Parador on our way to southern Spain and enjoyed the rooms with a view at the city, rooms with a view at the Ebro are noisy due to a aircomachine on the groundfloor or basement. The staff at reception,bar and restaurant are friendly altough as a guest you better speak a few words of spanish. The last two years the food at the restaurant was rather poor,while three years ago they served a menu based on local plates which was exellent. The breakfast in the Parador of Tortosa is the best you can get in Spain
