Room Tip: pool side are quieter than main rd, need close doors to block out street noise

From the moment we checked in to our departure we were more than happy with our choice of accommodation as we were unsure of what to expect being a one star hotel. The reception staff were excellent, helpful and informative and our room was very bright and clean. We were on the street side of the buiding but once the balcony doors were closed we didn't hear a sound and the air con unit was also very silent.
Breakfast suprised us as we expected a basic minimum, instead we had a massive choice of pastries, juices, coffee and teas, bread, bacon, egg, sausage etc etc etc, it was great.
We certainly would stay here again and would highly recommend it.

A group of 4 ladies who wanted a resort not too far from Barcelona. We were a little unsure about booking a 1* hotel but the reviews on here were really good so we decided to go for it. We flew home yesterday and I can confirm that all the great reviews are accurate. It's a good value for money hotel. Pluses included a fridge in the room, superb buffet breakfast available till noon, friendly staff and free wi fi throughout hotel. It is a little dated but characterful. We had rooms with balconies overlooking the street which were good for people watching. All spotlessly clean and towels changed daily. Close to all amenities. Handy for buses, train station, bars, restaurants and beach. All 4 of us loved our first visit to Sitges and to El Cid. It won't be our last. The airport bus is another plus. Costs €6 each way and is quicker than the train. If you do come by train and intend to have trips to Barcelona etc, buy a T10 ticket for €10. This gives you 10 journeys and can be used on trains, buses and metro. Not airport bus though. Avoid Splash Travel if you arrange transfers. We paid £142 through Travel Republic for a return 7 seater car and at Barcelona airport we were told they would not take us as they didn't have our booking. This was despite me having all the correct paperwork and a ref number. We ended up travelling by train and getting to the hotel at midnight on a Sunday. When contacted the next day they told me to complain through my travel agent and hung up. For a great value meal try the Galleon hotel. Fab buffet dinner for € 10 pp and bottle of house wine for €5. It's part of the same group. Use your voucher for a glass of cava at a 3rd hotel in the group, overlooking the sea. Fab 5th floor bar with those sea views. Final word - don't miss out on El Cid or this resort. After that dodgy start we had a fab time!

Room Tip: Definitely opt for a balcony room. We were on the 1st floor which was ideal

Given the price and star rating of this hotel, it surpassed my expectations by far. I had booked their most basic room type as this was the only one left on a busy weekend - while it had only an inside window and was rather dark, the room was spacious with a large double bed and en suite bathroom. The service from all staff I encountered was great, and they genuinely seemed eager to please. The icing on the cake was the peaceful pool area and the great breakfast buffet - again, surpassed my expectations. Handy location for train station, beach and centre of town. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if coming back to Sitges.

Very close to everything, and a most friendly and helpfull staff. The rooms are small but ok. Bathroom is ok, and they offer clean towells every day. Breakfast, as well as the coffee that comes with it, is excellent.

I stayed here for a single night in June 2014, due to a late flight into Barcelona. I chose it because it was the cheapest available hotel. The staff were lovely. Check in was fast and we were hooked up to the Wi-Fi which worked fine. We were also given vouchers for complimentary drinks!!

its an old hotel. Its clean. its fine. The main areas are quaint enough.

The rooms are basic. The beds were not very comfortable. The aircon worked fine, and the bathrooms weren't overly appealing. They were clean. Basically, if you were on a budget and u got it a very cheap price, id go for it. I wouldn't return myself, simply because its not my type of accommodation.

Breakfast was great though. Full variety of everything. We helped ourselves. Probably ate enough just to cover the price we paid for the room!!!

Location is fine. Its about a 3-5 minute walk to the sea front, through the town. Its pretty close to the train station.

I'd suggest it suits people who just need an inexpensive place to lay their head, and aren't too bothered about hotels and comforts.
