Reviewed September 27, 2013

Just back from my 12th stay at El Cid. Every year nice new additions have been made: TV, Air Con, new fittings, and this year very good WiFi throughout. Breakfast available until noon is great and very well done. Most appreciated is the welcome and daily help from the staff, especially the manager. Sitges is great and this hotel has the location that's right for everything. No problems, but do book ahead as the hotel is usually full. I've booked for two trips next year.

Room Tip: I like a room with a balcony facing the main street, noisy but good. You can close the door and use...

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.

Fourth time we've stayed at the El Cid and still cannot believe its only got one star.Hotel is clean nice pool excellent breakfast with loads of choice and topped up all the time. Since the last time the hotel has added free wi fi. They even have chilled drinks in the foyer to have after the beach but the main asset this hotel have is the staff who are universally friendly a tone set by the manager. Could not recommend this hotel enough. Well done.

It was our first time in Sitges and we actually had a BIG problem: during the train trip from Barcelona to Sitges the wallet were stolen to the both of us, so when we arrived at the hotel we had NOTHING with us: no ID or passport, no money, no credit card. The reception staff was incredibly kind and helpful, especially Livia, who deserved our lifetime gratitude: they understood our problem and they were able to find out all the possible solutions in order to help us. In add of this, El Cid is very central located, has an excellent value for price, the rooms are nice and the hotel provides a very rich breakfast buffet. We definitely will suggest it and we're coming back for sure (Sitges is a fabulous place! But in Spain be VERY careful to your stuff!! We're frequent travelers and we've never had an issue, anywhere! In Spain there are actually at time A LOT, and very professional, rubbers!!!).

My first time in Spain, and I couldn't have had a better welcome. Lovely comfortable hotel, in a good location.
Nice room with balcony overlooking the pool, cleaned to a high standard daily. The Breakfast Buffet couldn't have been better, and the staff very friendly and helpful. I only wish we could have stayed longer.

I arrived checked in quickly lots of info on hotel etc even though I had been before.
I booked a single room but was given a comfortable triple room ,the hotel is not the most modern but it's clean has a friendly staff,the pool area is spotless and has plently of sunbeds.
There is a good buffet served till noon great if you party too late!
There is always plenty of hot water and the chilled lemonade in the foyer is a nice touch .
In summing up its a great hotel if you have a budget it's quiet enough and comfy beds,but don't expect luxury!

I went to the El Cid two years ago and I enjoyed it so this year in early September I saw no reason at all not to use it again when I returned to Sitges for a solo holiday. The main attraction of this hotelm is the staff. Tony, the Manager has a really excellentb team of staff, and I include the room chambermaids, the kitchen boys, the boys and girls on the reception. I must thank one female receptionist who helped me out when I was trying to get a print out from the hotel PC. The hotel is in the cenre of the town which makes it ideal for the shops, beaches, rail and bus and the nightlife. The hotel is classed as a budget hotel but I have been to many so called 3 star hotels in the UK which are very poor when compared to the El Cid. Yes the El Cid has its faults, its rough corners but overall it is a fine hotel and if Tony stays in charge it will never let you down. I must say that this hotel may not be suitable for familys with young children, there are no play areas, childrens pools and I have never seen young children at the hotel. The bulk of the customers seem to be solo males, couples or small groups of males or females. The hotel is very gay friendly as is the whole of Sitges town. If you want a relaxing, trouble free hotel in a really great Spanish town then this hotel should suit you. The El Cid is part of a group of hotels so before you book look on the web site www.hotelsitges.com and check out all the hotels in the group.

I have stayed here many times and will continue to.every visit to the hotel something else has been improved for their guests.this year they have improved the breakfast to include a hot Buffett as well as the continental choice which is very large.they have also included cava in the morning if you like a drink.They have free wifi in all rooms and it's very high speed.if you depart late you can check out and they will store your luggage for you and provide you with a room to shower and iron your clothes later in the day.The staff are excellent and always a big welcome.i am writing this review now in the hotel for my previous visit 2 weeks ago.
