Central Normandie Hotel
Ranked #34 of 40 Hotels in Sitges
Reviewed January 6, 2012

In August 2011, my partner and I stayed at the Normadie and realised we had made a big mistake. It was peak season and all the other hotels were fully booked so we decided to book this one as it looked ok on booking.com. What a big mistake! The hotel was way overpriced even though it was Sitges. The hotel staff were friendly however that was the only thng going for this hotel. The room was terrible. The furniture was basic to say the least and broken. There was no fan provided in the room, the bedding was old and the decor was dreadful. There were pigeon nests on the window ledge with the smell of pigeon droppings. The paint was pealing off the tiles and walls in the bathroom and the shower curtain was very moldy and stained. Then came the worst..the ants nest in the matresss..only to be discoved during the night as we were bitten on our feet and legs. We checked straight out and did not stay another night...and found a hotel at the other end of the beach that was cheaper and fantastic. Avoid this hotel!

For the price, this hotel seems overpriced during the high season. Rooms are bare bone, with poorly maintained bathrooms and a general level of cleanliness more akin to a hostel than a hotel. Furniture was broken, walls were patched over and not painted properly, and the bathroom had a discolored floor and mildewy shower curtain. I would never stay here again - there are much better options for just a few more euros in the area. Besides the location, there's nothing going for this hotel

Like many other guests who have reviewed this hotel, we managed to secure a room at this hotel when every other was booked out (I soon realised why I was so 'lucky'). The hotel staff were friendly and pleasant but nothing could overpower the shortcommings of this hotel. The rooms were beyond basic, the shower was tiny and the bathrooms were last upgraded in 1975. The bed mattresses may have been just as old - horribly uncomfortable with thin sheets and lumpy pillows. The walls were paper-thin and the French guys next door kept us up all night with their partying and bursts of karaoke. There was a constant lurking smell of cigarette smoke blended with disinfectant. Breakfast was also terrible. The only good thing about this hotel is the location. Stay somewhere else.

We spent a fortnight at the Centrale Normandie at the end of the summer. We booked late and were pleased to find a hotel that could take us. We were very disappointed. For what we paid we deserved far more. A tiny room with little furniture, no chair or table. A bathroom where the tiles which had been painted over were pealing. Bare elecric wires hung down in the wardrobe. The worst of all was the breakfast. One croissant (no seconds) dry bed and a limited supply of spam amd fruit (poor apples and unripe babanas). The staff were friendly and there was internet access, rt a price, but we would never return and not recommend it to anyone.

In spite of the extremely friendly and helpful staff, we thought the hotel offered little value for your money. 85 Euros + 1,80 for the roomsafe, no elevator to 1st floor, breakfast in a basement with no window where you were only allowed to take 1 croissant each, smaal room with small double bed, no airco, small dilapidated bathroom with worn, dirty shower curtain, rotting door, no glasses (when asked, we were given plastic cups), painted over tiles on the wall that were already damaged. When we booked 4 nights, the whole amount was imeediately charged to the credit card, no cancellation possible. We thought the room was a complete RIP-OFF, probably the worst deal you can get in Sitges for this kind of money. We found many better hotels at much lower rates and hotels with the same rates but with much better value for your money. We work in the travel industry and know what we are talking about. Do yourself a favor, DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL!!

We can only assume that when the in progress renovations combining two small hotels into an only slightly larger one are complete, this hotel will gain a star if not two. It is an affordable option in this wonderful Spanish beach resort. The hotel is on a quiet street close to the train station and up from the beach, but definitely within walking distance of anywhere you might want to be, including the beach. Our large room (with elevator access) had television and en suite bath, but no phone. The staff at the desk was happy to take phone messages. Internet access is also available for a nominal fee. The included breakfast was also good.
