“March 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

We spent two nights here after arriving in Barcelona, we actually stayed here instead of staying in the city and it worked great for us!!! Sitges is very manageable, and much quieter than staying in Barcelona with lots of good restaurants, a very nice beach, and vibrant street scene at night. We opted for a top floor room with a private terrace, which was great for us as it overlooked a residential square and provided a place for us to sit outside in the sun. The weather at the very end of March was perfect, about 70 degrees and clear! Our room was quite small and very basic with a tiny bathroom but exceptionally clean! There were black-out shades which worked very well for sleeping and jet lag. The owners went out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable and provided lots of information about the area. We highly recommend the Alexandra, especially if you are looking for a clean, basic, no frills hotel. Ask for a top floor room with a private terrace!!!

Room Tip: Go for the top floor for the view, terrace, and quietness!

My wife and I arrived in Sitges without any hotel booking, on the spur of the moment, and stumbled across Hotel Alexandra. When we were shown to our room we were amazed at the standard of the room, for the price that we were paying. It was streets ahead of the other options in Sitges in that price range (and compared very favourably with other more expensive places). We were on the second floor and had two balconies, and a huge and very comfortable bed. We didn't mind at all that there is no breakfast - it is so easy to grab a tasty (and cheap) breakfast in the town. And it is perfectly placed too. Only 5 minutes from the beach, but far enough away from the main strip so that we weren't bothered by the noise when we wanted to go to sleep. Our only gripe was that we didn't find out until we were leaving that they have beach umbrellas to borrow for free - we unfortunately shelled out 8 Euros for the day for the privilege... Next time we will definitely make use of this! We will be back!

Room Tip: We were on the second floor facing the square, on the corner of the building - it was a very spaciou...

This small one-star hotel does more than most five-star hotels. Owners Michel and Michel go out of ther way to make your stay with them in Sitges a truly memorable experience. The cleaning staff meticulously clean the rooms. I slept like a baby on the foam bed. My room had Wifi. It's 5 minutes from the beaches, restaurants, bars, and stores. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: They are all similar - some have balconies which look out to a small plaza - I didn't have one a...

This was an amazing hotel! The owners were so nice, and the rooms were spotless and beautiful! We stayed in a corner room on the second floor and had two balconies. The hotel was a quick walk from the beach. The air conditioning worked perfectly and the room itself was spacious and bright. We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in Sitges!

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. We have been visiting Sitges every year for the last 8 years, so we have been trying some hotels by now, and this is the best! If you compare the prices with the hotels just by the beach, this is a very inexpensive hotel, but still only 5 minutes walk from the beach. Very clean, fresh, and located so you are in the middle of it all. Very friendly and helpful owners, so it feels more like a cosy guesthouse rather then a hotel. We will definitely stay there next year again!!

Have stayed at this little hotel on numerous occasions with different family members and in different types of room, the most recent being with my daughter. It is extremely clean and very comfortable and is booked on a room-only basis. Some rooms are internal, with the window looking into an air-conditioning tunnel so you need to specify what type of room you want when booking (the ground floor rooms have no balcony, but windows are barred and secure). The hotel was previously owned by an elderly Spanish couple but since last year has been under new ownership (French). My only disappointment when attempting to book this week is that the prices have increased dramatically since our last visit.
