“Spot on!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

My partner and I stayed at the galeon for 7nights at the end of May and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves The location was perfect for train station town and the beach. We stayed in the Pavillion bit and it was very very quiet.Breakfasts were lovely and towel hire and free safe and air con was a very welcome bonus. It was spotlessly clean and just perfect in every way. This was our first visit to Sitges but shall certainly become our place of choice for weekends away and we would always stay at the Galeon. It truly deserves its number one position!

The staff are just fantastic at this hotel. Vincent in particular is always so helpful and charming. Nothing is ever too much trouble. The breakfasts are first class and the hotel is kept very clean. The location is in the centre of Sitges and the pool area is a haven of peace and tranquility. If you are a single traveller make sure you are not allocated a room number ending in 4 as these are like broom cupboards! Just speciify you want a room with a balcony and you will be delighted. I love this hotel and will be back.

Room Tip: The best rooms are in the Annexe behind.

Thank you very much for having found time to write a review of Hotel Galeón of Sitges. Many thanks for your appreciation to the result of the efforts of workers in the Hotel, they worry that everything is to your liking and have a memorable stay in Sitges. Hotel Galeón has few rooms with balcony and it is not easy to give these rooms.

My partner and i stayed at this hotel 2 yrs ago and it was just so fantastic that we have just returned from another 2 week holiday and again stayed at the galeon. The rooms are fantastic, we stayed in the main hotel this year and our room looked out over the main street. The room was huge, the bed so comfortable, very little noise from the street which surprised me as its very busy. The rooms are spotless.

The pool was great, spent a lot of time lying beside it and met some great people there. The food is amazing and there is plenty of choice.

The staff are just so friendly and helpfull and they all speak very good english. Vicene ( i really hope i spelt that correctly) is just wonderful. Such a nice man, always ready to help.

This really is a gem of a hotel in a fantastic location. We will defo be back to the hotel in the future. Well done to all the staff that keep this lovely hotel running so smoothly and thankyou for making us most welcome. We had a wonderful holiday.

We arrived at Hotel Galeon with high expectations given previous reviews. We can identify some very positive aspects of the hotel and can understand why the hotel, overall, receives very high ratings. These aspects include:
Friendly and efficient staff
Spectacular breakfast buffet- second to none
Excellent and reasonably priced buffet dinner
Wifi
Clean room
Comfortable and large bed
Central location

Now for the not so good:
Room was over the street. As we did not want to sleep with air conditioning, at 11pm we opened the window- what a mistake to make- the noise on the street was deafening and continued till after 2am
The shower ( no much spoken about rain showers in our room- they are only to be found in the more expensive pavilion) was an over bath affair. It was unpredictable to say the least. In the course of a five minute shower the temperature yoyo'd from tepid to extremely hot a hundred times. This was reported day one, to no effect
Opening the bathroom 'window' revealed a ventilation chimney ( there was no extractor fan). Also revealed was a face staring back at you- extremely disconcerting in your toilet- the person in the room adjoining and also ventilated by the chimney was opening the window at the same time. There must be a more discreet solution.
While one does not go on holiday to watch TV, during your siesta, or late at night it would be good to have something other than BBC or CNN news to watch in English. Intermittently there was a third english language German channel, but in the main, news only.
My last point is not to die in a ditch over, however the room location, shower and bathroom window issues really put a damper on our three night break in Sitges. Had we been located in the Pavilion, with a working shower, and no unfortunate introduction to our neighbour in the toilet, I imagine we would also have awarded 5 stars.

Would we stay again? Not in the main building for £100 a night.

Room Tip: Don't take a room overlooking San Francisco Street.

Dear Sir,
Thank you very much for your kind comments in regards to your stay between us. I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed many aspects of your stay, but I am somewhat disheartened to hear at the negative points.
Our hotel is situated, both buildings, on the center of the town, this could make that sometimes you can hear the noise from outside, which we couldn´t controlled. So that we have been working to avoid this noise; soundproofing the rooms with double glazed windows, and other systems which keep the noise away. About the showers we didn´t have notice about this problem with the water but we are going to work to check what the problem is to solve it.
About the window on the toilet, we didn´t realize that it was so big problem but following your advertise we are going to install on there “French” blinds.

I have usually stayed at Sitges Park for past 10yrs .Galeon will be my chosen hotel in future .A problem on first night I was put in a tiny room without all the facilities .I had recently been hospitalised and was feeling very fragile I am 75yrs .The excellent and more than helpfull staff soon sorted out and found a better room for me the next day and they showed great concern when they were aware I was not feeling 100% some days .
I was very impressed by the superb buffet breakfast and the evening buffet meal in the evening for less than 10euros.I am booked to return in September.The pool area was a havean of peace ,loved the afternoon tea supplied . Many friends from Sitges Park were staying there so felt very at home .Liked that I had a choise to have a meal at the Platyador for a reasonable cost and he welcome glass of Cava.Thank you staff for taking such good care of me : Jamie : fom London
