Ours was a mixed stay so only average rating. Overnighted twice at the start and end of a trip so two different rooms. Our first had a balcony and overlooked the busy main road so was quite noisy. The twin beds had extremely hard mattresses so we didn't sleep particularly well. Our second overlooked the swimming pool to the rear... More

My partner and I have been staying at the El Cid twice a year for more then 8 years. For a one star hotel, it delivers in spades, clean and comfortable rooms and great breakfast but it is the warmth and friendliness of the staff that makes the El Cid special. It is like staying with family. The fact that... More

Thank you, for the lovely things you said. I guess the highest compliment we can be paid as accommodation providers, is to have guests return and enjoy their stay for another time, thank you for that and for your company. Thank you very much. More

A quirky but very lovable old hotel with a number of amenities that you would not expect in a budget hotel. Very hospitable staff that let me check in when I arrived about noon. Well kept pool area with comfortable deck chairs unlike the hard plastic ones you find in so many places. Only about a five minute walk from... More

I've stayed there with my sister for one night at the end of August. Good location- short walk to the beach. Rooms quite basic but clean and we had everything we needed. Little balcony with view to the pool. Lots of choice at the breakfast; If you want to save some money on accommodation- perfect choice. The hotel could do... More

I stayed in Hotel El Cid for a few days in September. I was travelling alone as meeting my family in Sitges. The Hotel is ideally situated, just a short walk from both the beach and the train station. Room was cleaned everyday and was well kept if not a little dated. Shower was very strong which was great. I... More

Stayed one night as had to meet family at Barcelona airport next day. Excellent choice of hotel in Sitges, Central, clean, friendly, rooms adequate, lovely pool, good breakfast, super evening meal in its sister hotel. There was always some iced lemonade in reception, very nice touch. You can hire huge pool towels. The hotel receptionist looks after your luggages when... More

There is nothing seriously wrong with this hotel. It offers value for money in expensive Sitges if you are on a budget, but I think I will stay elsewhere next time. Good location. The room was big, the bed could easily accommodate 5 adults to sleep in. OK breakfast with lavish selection of pastries and fresh fruits, nice friendly reception... More

El Cid's modest 1 star still shines brightly against its rivals in Sitges' economy holiday sector. Recent years have seen a big upgrade to the hotels in the town, and prices now reflect this. But 'value for money' are still the watchwords at El Cid. Given the excellent location, lovely pool, spotlessly cleaned rooms (serviced by a walkie talkie wielding... More
