I stayed in a "Superior" room in the Pavillion, with a friend. The room was clean, and had great facilities. Kettle, Fridge, small balcony (no view but was only there at sleep times), Best shower ever in a hotel, safe, and a double and single bed so great for friends staying rather than a couple. Breakfast as all say is excellent. All the staff were friendly and helpful from the cleaning ladies to the reception staff and the breakfast staff. Could not fault any of them. Afternoon Tea a nice touch..... Only drawback... It would be nice to have a "bar" atmosphere to wander back to of an evening, the bar is there, but not used, possibly because it is in reception rather than around a pool, but I would go again in a heartbeat!!!!
Oh and the pool area is lovely too!

Room Tip: Superior are worth the extra. although in a different unit they are two minutes at most from the mai...

We found this wonderful gem purely through trip adviser reviews a few days before we wanted to head down to Sitges. This was an INCREDIBLE hotel!!! The Galeon was conveniently located a few short blocks from the train station and the staff was so wonderful! I STILL can't believe that this hotel was So affordable yet SO luxurious and only 3.60 euros and a 35 short minute train ride form Barcelona.

We wanted to say 3 nights in Sitges and were hoping to book at the sister hotel rated #1 on Trip Advisor, Hotel Platjador, but they didn't have room so we booked our first night at the Hotel Galeon which was in the top 5 trip adivsor hotels for Sitges, and we were BLOWN AWAY by the value! This hotel is conveniently located to the train station, sea front, bars/restaurant and shopping spots.

Upon check in, we were given vouchers for two glasses of Cava, which is basically Spain version of Procescco which I'm in LOVE with, redeemable at the 5th floor bar of their their sister Hotel located RIGHT on the sea front, Hotel Platjador as well as a voucher for two free drinks with dinner at the Platjador's restaurant. We used the drink vouchers but didn't use the restaurant voucher since we were staying at the Platjador the next two nights.

Starting with the best part, the Amazing breakfast buffet which is included in your room price, was so expansive!! Served from 8am-noon you'll find everything from a traditional British breakfast of eggs, baked beans, bacon and toast to an expansive spread of breads, cereals (thank you for offering soy milk also!!), both cured and sausage variety meats, fresh cut fruits as well as a generous offering of sweet and savory breakfast goodies as well as coffee,tea and juice. If that's not enough to sell you, they have a Mimosa bar!? HAVE YOU BOOKED A ROOM YET!?

We had already checked out, and into the sister hotel, Platjador, and experienced a WONDERFUL meal at the waterfront Tapas Lounge, Lux ( hyperlink here: http://luxlounge.es/en/, when I realized that I had completely forgotten our ipad in the covers of our massive bed of the Galeon. It was almost 11pm the night after we had checked out and the concierge of the Platjador called the Galeon Concierge, who stopped what they were doing and immediately searched out our ipad AND had it ready for us to gather when we walked up 20 minutes later. What SERVICE!!!!!

This hotel was an absolutely GREAT value, wonderfully located, amazing breakfast buffet!

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights at the end of April to attend a wedding, we were really just looking for somewhere clean and central and not much more. We got so much more than we could ever have expected from this hotel.
Great staff, couldn't do enough for you and all so friendly.
The most amazing breakfast, genuinely brilliant with a huge choice of food ranging from the traditional Brittish fry up options, to fresh fruit, cold meats/cheeses, desserts, gazpacho and shots of bloody mary! All washed down with unlimited free cava - just brill.
The rooms were clean and comfortable and the pool area a real bonus if you didn't want to go down to the beach.
Location is perfect, 2 minutes walk to bars and restaurants but on a quieter street.
I'll be coming back in September for a few days with my best friend for a girly weekend - just loved it.

I've spent many years working for 5 star resorts in Florida and I have to say that the Galeon is 'The little hotel that could!' The 3 star rating of this property should be looked at again as it deserves more. The staff, front desk and breakfast, couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. The rooms are fantastic, we usually ask for a street view to watch the world go by on a lazy afternoon, they are spotlessly clean and have every amenity you would expect.
Much has been said about the fantastic breakfast, which is truly amazing for the price of the room, But we loved the complimentory afternoon tea, This is the sort of touch that you would expect from a 5 star hotel. We are already booked in for another stay in September 2012 and are counting the days. Keep up the great work.

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
