“Nice quiet hotel & good location”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

Decent place to stay, good value & in a great location in the town. Staff were friendly & helpful. The only downside is the lack of air con - so it all depends if that is something you want or not. Having breakfast in the lovely garden every morning was nice.

Room Tip: Try and get a room overlooking the garden

Standards have dropped since my first stay in 1993.
The current management is living off a reputation established by a different team who did know something about hospitality.
The hotel is mismanaged by a family who are quick to tell you that they know best what their paying guests want from the hotel but who never invite comments from their guests.
Employing kith and kin is a recipe for disaster in the hospitality sector - the employees run the hotel to suit themselves, none seem to have had formal hospitality training and it shows.
If they could upgrade their breakfast offer it might go some way to restore consumer confidence.
The breakfast team will bring a basket of cheap stale bread to your table as you sit down. You won't want to eat the cup cakes sweating in their plastic packaging, stamped with a six month sell by date, full of preservatives and fake colourants to make them look somewhat appetising.
The yoghurts are similarly fortified with preservatives. The fresh fruit cocktail is from a tin - in sunny Spain, imagine serving tinned fruit in a country considered the fresh fruit basket of Europe.
The orange juice is a disgusting concentrate from the cheapest local food store. Fresh squeezed juice can be purchased at the bar, along with decent fresh coffee, these should be standard offers at breakfast.
The staff are friendly. The breakfast team work very hard in bringing bad coffee to your table. I'd prefer to see them work smarter.
The management should install a self service coffee machine for guests to go grab a coffee when they are ready for it rather than having bad coffee going cold whilst you eat the meager breakfast offer.
Fools and their money are easily parted - don't spend your cash here unless you want to be treated like one. It's my seventh stay but alas my last time to visit Hotel Romantic.

Have just returned from a two-week stay at the Romantic. Absolutely enjoyable and relaxing.

I have been to Sitges many times, but had not stayed at this hotel for many years. If you are looking for a hotel with air conditioning and flat-screen tvs (or any tv!) this is not for you. If, on the other hand, you appreciate being in historic buildings lovingly and personally restored, with extensive and eclectic collections of art and artefacts you may love it.

My room was simple, but very good: facing the entrance street, and very quiet at night and with very high ceiling and comfortable large bed. Room was kept spotlessly clean by excellent cleaning team.

One of the high points of this hotel is its garden, where breakfast is served. It's a wonderfully relaxing place to start the day, and enjoy the very nice breakfast buffet.

The staff are gracious and welcoming (thank you Manuel, Miguel, Jose, .....).

The bar is a beautiful area serving drinks at very reasonable prices - it's a pity more people don't seem to have discovered as it must be one of the "gems" of Sitges. The sister hotel Renaixenca, just across the road, also has a great little bar operated during the summer months. James can organise a superb Bloody Mary!

And, by the way, putting on my technophile hat, the Romantic has excellent and free wi-fi throughout the hotel.

This lovely old hotel is the perfect place to meet friends for a glass of Cava. Friendly bar staff, nice environment and you are never rushed. Well worth a visit. Sadly rooms do not have air con......just fans which is the only downside.

Room Tip: try rooms in the annexe

The staff are friendly and helpful, and the hotel has a nice atmosphere. However, the most important part of any stay has to be the room, and ours was cramped and entirely charmless. Very little space, hardly any surfaces, no TV, inadequate lighting, only one socket. One consequence of the lack of space was that you kept banging into window handles and window frames, which opened inwards - these were difficult to avoid as you squeezed between the bed and the wall. The bathroom is a contortionist's dream. On our final day, we returned to find that our room had not been locked by the cleaner. Anyone can make a mistake of course, but the locks are of the kind where you have to physically turn the key to lock the door, as opposed to simply pulling it shut, as is the case with modern locks (the kind that use key cards). This is the kind of upgrade and investment that the hotel is in desperate need of.

The Hotel Romantic exceeded the Expecations of myself and my friend. The location was everything we wanted and the building itself was incredible. We loved the high ceilings and the amazing collection of paintings, statues and artworks giving it an oldie worldie feel. Even in the heat the hotel stays cool, in every which way. The layout is like a kitch maze and the grounds are wonderful, with breakfast outside in the vast garden allowing you to affect introductions with fellow travellers and like minded friends! Breakfast itself was very pleasant with a wide choice of cold cuts, cheeses and pasteries. The staff were very amiable and helpful to all the needs we had! Thank you Hotel Romantic, our love affair was with you!!

Room Tip: If you like oldie worldie and dont have ridiculous expectations of grandure then you'll love it...

Situation Excellent. Ambience good. Garden - paradise, particularly when enjoying the good breakfast. Staff friendly and efficient. Public areas very pleasant, tastefully presented, and interesting art works. Feel of a different age.
Bedroom very poor. Outdated, cramped and bathroom barely fit for purpose. Rooms do not meet to-days expected standards by a long shot.
Considering bedrooms - poor value for money. Unlikely to return
