“Overall good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Mixed feelings about this hotel. If you don't get a sea view room it's not worth paying a premium to stay. The location is fantastic rooms very clean and spacious. Very good choice at breakfast although the hot food was a little cold especially the scrambled egg. Service at the hotel is very hit and miss. Bar staff disinterested and level of service clearly effected by there mood. No iron and iron boards due to health and safety ! Booked via booking.com a double room which we then had to pay a supplement as it was double occupancy. After much arguing and insisting on seeing the manager this was reduced but still annoying. I would stay again but not worth it if you don't get a room to enjoy the view.

Ignore some of the reports. The Hotel staff are excellent all speak English. We were upgraded to a Junior Suite which was lovely very modern and large with huge balcony overlooking the sea.I will agree that there is a lot of noise from other rooms but i spoke to the reception about it and they were pleased that we had raised the problem.Perfect for walking around to see this wonderful town with fabulous bars and restaurants will be coming back.

Room Tip: avoid rooms on first floor

This hotel saved me from the Terramar. Rather expensive, and reception staff a bit too formal and not willing to discuss rates, but all in all correct. Nice bathroom, but street noise and noise from other rooms as well so I ended up byuing some ear plugs, which was a good investment. The floor surface in the rooms are made of ceramic tiles, and they did not have any tissue on the rear ends of the furniture. So every time somebody in the neighboring rooms moved a chair, or the cleaning staff did their work, it sounded like an earthquake. But with ear plugs you're saved!

Overall, I liked my six-night stay at Calipolis. I disagree with the need for renovation some other reviewers mention as I thought the place was very clean and maintained. I booked a reservation over Expedia. I usually never do this as I prefer to deal with hotels directly. Expedia had my reservation as booked. When I arrived at the hotel after traveling all day from the US, the front desk had no record of my reservation. With a little research I was good to go and this involved me e-mailing the Expedia confirm to the desk manager. I was set up on the 7th floor room 727. By standards the room was small, but nicely decorated, basic and clean. The bathroom was fresh and clean. The balcony of the room was twice the size of the actual room itself and overlooked the sea and city. My room service every day was very good, including the refresh of the minibar. Noise level was ok, with most of the noise I experienced coming from floors above moving balcony furniture. The walls are not totally soundproofed and only one night I heard voices from the adjacent room (why I travel with 33db earplugs). Overall I would say it was what I expected, no disappointments, friendly staff and average value for what I paid. I would recommend this hotel as it's a 5 minute walk to the center and opposite the main beach. Location is perfect.

Room Tip: Definitely request a higher floor.

This was my fourth stay in this hotel and it's starting to look like this hotel would be in a dire need of renovation. The overall decor and surfaces are beging to look really old and tired. Not to mention the bathrooms that are never dry and are like steamrooms for the rest of the stay right after the first shower.

The double bed in the delux sea view room had a huge crack in the middle of the bed so if you want to sleep close to the one close to your heart you'll have to settle with half of the bed.

+ be sure to leave tip for the room's cleaner to get the service you need.

We stayed at the Hotel Calipolis for a week in mid June in a Junior Suite and then a Suite. They were similar except the Suite had a separate bedroom. The reason we switched is simply that we extended our stay because we loved Sitges so much and had met new friends there, and the Junior Suite wasn't available.
Both rooms were facing the beach with lovely balconies. The rooms themselves were a little tired and we expected this based on photos. The bed wasn't the most comfortable and the couch in the Suite looked like it was from the 80's. The rooms were generally clean and staff were always friendly. Management had been kind enough to organise a car for us from Barcelona Airport before we left Australia.
We tried the breakfast twice and it was nice.
The key to this hotel was its location. It was directly across the road from the gay beach and an easy walk to the restaurants and bars. It would be great if management started a refurbishment of the hotel and modernised this place, because it would attract even more people.

I have recently stayed at the Hotel Calipolis and am writing to speak to the excellent attention and administrative effort from the Director de Alojamiento, Edgar Labadia. This fine gentleman was truly thorough and fair with a business matter from my recent stay in Sitges. I would highly recommend the Hotel Calioplis for many reasons and would state that all the guests are better served by the attention to detail and business prowess of Edgar. His attention to the customer needs is beyond reproach.

Thank you for all your help,

James B, Toronto ON
