Hotel Medium Sitges Park
Ranked #12 of 40 Hotels in Sitges
Reviewed 5 November 2011

I knew this place was cheap and cheerful and it was, but with just a little effort on the upkeep it could be so much better. The rooms are pretty small but big enough and there's just enough storage and a safe for 18€ a week; the aircon works and the bathroom is big enough.

Location-wise it's great, 5 mins walk from the station, the same from the main shop/bar/restaurant area and about 10-15 to the beach. The crowd was a mix of young students, gay men and senior citizens but that may be just the last week in September. Also worth noting with this date is the sun deck is more shaded than sunny and the pool didn't get the sun at all and was cold - and I mean stunningly cold! I'm guessing the promo photos were shot in the Spring or early Summer. This might be why there were only ever half a dozen people on the sun beds and most sunworshippers went to the beach.

We only stayed bed and breakfast and only managed that for the first three days and then went elsewhere instead. Food consisted of bacon (Spanish streaky), eggs (griddled and always half raw), sausages, varying accompaniments, varying breads and pastries, processed ham, pork, and cheese, yogurt and a tinned fruit. Given where we were, I'd expected much more fresh fruit and juice that wasn't mixed from concentrate as it was machine-dispensed and despite the great coffee machines, they used an urn with the most acidic bitter coffee I have ever not drunk. The evening buffet seemed very popular but we never tried it.

As other reviews have mentioned, the staff couldn't be more helpful and are a true credit to the hotel.

Now for the disappointments: the hotel has been left to go to ruin a bit - missing grout, rotting shower seals and a shower head so blocked the first thing we did was buy a descaling gel so we could have a decent shower. The aircon had mouldy walls around the vent and broke down one day; similarly we couldn't get any hot water at all one evening so made sure we always showered before 1900 after that.

And it was noisy - not from street noise but internal - slamming doors (inconsiderate people obviously but there's no padding in the frames so you'll always get a good slam), plumbing (ground floor), thin walls and the staff dragging tables around at 0720 each day setting breakfast in the central garden/pool area. I didn't have one good night's sleep in a week and that hardly bodes for a relaxing holiday.

Sitges itself I loved and will go back again - but I will pay more and stay elsewhere so that I can enjoy it.

I spent a week at the Sitges Park Hotel in September of 2011, and overall was very unhappy with my stay. The biggest issue was that my room had an infestation of bugs. They were crawling all over the bed spreads...now, to be clear, these were NOT bed bugs, but rather some sort of ant. Still, it was unpleasant.

The bathrooms were ridiculously small. When you open the door it opens part of the way until it hits the toilet. There was a cut-out in the vanity so that the door could clear to the toilet. The towels were well overdue for replacing, and for whatever reason, my housekeeper was very stingy and providing a single towel each day. This was a bit of a problem when you take multiple showers a day - given the beach and nightlife lifestyle of Sitges. I asked for extra...to no avail.

The room is very bare bones. Everything is tired and needs updating. Even base expectations are not met. No refrigerators, no mirrors, 5 TV channels, uncomfortable beds...Even the simplest of things, like a 'Do Not Disturb' sign were not available. Now, I was on holiday and staying out until 4 in the morning, and housekeeping was knocking and coming into the room at 8 am...and I had no way to tell them to stop...really frustrating.

The service at the hotel was just short of hostile. When I checked in (for 1 week), I was told nothing about the hotel. I was not told where breakfast was served, anything about WIFI...nothing. All subsequent trips past the front desk were completely devoid of pleasantries. I had a friend stop by to call from the front desk, and he couldn't believe how rude and unprofessional the woman at the desk behaved.

Maybe this place just wasn't for me, but I have stayed at several places in Sitges, and my friends stayed at a place very nearby which are all better value and service. I will never stay here again, and couldn't recommend this place to anyone.

The Park Hotel is very central and convenient for the beach and gay nightlife. Very gay friendly ( approx 80 % gay guests when I stayed) and most of the staff friendly and helpful. The real plus point is the fantastic garden with a small pool and bar.The rooms were clean but basic and could be improved by the addition of a fridge and coffee making facilities. The food was perfectly acceptable and half board is great value.

This was the third visit to this hotel and pleased to see the familiar and friendly faces of the staff. Many of the guests we knew from previous visits and good to meet up again. I learned, however, that the hotel was to be "upgraded" and thus lose its charm. A very sad day for all the regulars.

This hotel has a central location at the top of the small town of Sitges and therefore is well located for the shops, the supermarkets, the train station and the beach. Sitges is a very pretty and very Spanish style town so it is a joy walking through the streets around this hotel to find the many restaurants and street cafes. The hotel is old and retains it's very Spanish feel. While it could be described as 'dated' we found all areas of the hotel to be exceptionally clean and well cared for. We had half-board. While the food was quite simple and basic it was always very tasty, always warm, fresh and plentiful. Dinner is buffet style and normally had 3 or 4 meat/fish dishes, with a range of hot vegetable and various presentations of potatoes. As a vegetarian I never had to ask for anything special (although when the restaurant manager knew I was a vegetarian he offered to provide me with an omelette) because there was always a range of nice salad dishes available and also meatless pasta dishes. The room was pretty standard but had an excellent air-con system. We stayed in room 309 which had a huge balcony with 2 sun loungers and was excellent for sun bathing. The bed clothes were clean and fresh and the towels changed every day.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back on the top (3rd) floor have huge balconies with sun loungers - I think the numbers...

I liked this hotel mostly because the area around the pool is a lovely, peaceful, green oasis of relaxation - so quiet and relaxing, whilst the hotel is so well placed for access to the bars and nightlife, not far from the beach and very close to the train station. perfect location.
