Just back from my first trip to Sitges. We stayed at the El Cid hotel, we decided to spend as little as possible on the hotel as we were there for 10days, our requirements were, clean and close to everything and the El Cid delivered.
Ok the hotel is dated, its all old furniture and tiles in bathroom are so old they are most likely going to be back in fashion again sooner than later, but i am not knocking the hotel for its style, its a really nice well run little hotel, the room was always cleaned when we got back everyday, fresh towels, you cant ask for better, the only let down was the bed, i have to say it was not very comfy(other people i was traveling with found them the same) after a few vodkas in the bars i didnt care but it something to note, if you need a really comfy bed then i am not sure this is hotel for you but its my only complaint. The rooms did have air-con and what 1* offers air-con so top marks for that let me tell ya.
The staff at this hotel are lovely, a credit to the place. from front desk staff who were very helpful to the chamber maids, all friendly hello's whenever you passed them in halls. The breakfast is served in basement room, its feels like its under the pool but its was great for the price we paid for the rooms, its usual stuff, breads, pastries, cold meats, juices, coffee/tea and cava (nice touch) I didnt come down for breakfast everyday(even thought it is served till midday) but i did have a nasty hangover a few days and didnt make it down, but tasty and plentyful.
The hotel is near everything, the train station is 5-8 mins walk away, the beach is about 5-8mins walk as well, plenty of gay bars near by and some great restaurants, we ate in parrots restaurant, great 3course deal. SoCa is very near hotel and had fantastic 3 course deal with glass of wine or beer. If you wanna splash out a wee bit, The Beach House is gorgeous and pretty close.
All in all, a great llittle 1* hotel with fantastic staff plus clean and safe.... what more do you want!!!
