“unforgetable stay”
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

We have enjoyed a lovely weekend in this charming hotel, in this lovely village.
We try the right option, because we need a rest and the small quiet town and the magic senations in the hotel contribute to make our stay unforgettable .The staff is kind and helpful,really a perfect choice, close to Sitges with its beaches and night life but away from the noise.
The atmosphere idyllic and calm ambience.The staff is so professional, kind and recommend us perfect places to eat, to visit... thank you and sure see you soon

Stayed February 2013

We have stayed there one night on our way from Barcelona to Córdoba. It is not a place for holiday but for a stopover it is absolutely fine.
The place is a little old but absolutely clean. The shower is great (lots of water), the size of the room was ok, minibar is standard, WiFi did not work.
We arrived late wih our twins and they had to babycots set up which was perfect. The owners are very, very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is standard but ok.
Anyway, don't expect a four six senses deluxe place for the rates they charge. But for the rate it is absolutely fine if you need a quiet place close to the motorway.
I would rather recommend it for business than for leisure and family.

Recently spent a few nights here and founding to be a rally lovely hotel, full of charm and character. The hotel is lovely, really old fashioned and full of history, high ceilings, comfortable beds, basic continental breakfast and the family run place is a really lovely visit if you are looking for something really quiet as the town of sant per de ribes is incredibly quiet.

The weather was not that amazing while we were there, so could not use the pool, but spent a bit of time in sitges, which is only ten euros in a taxi.

Inma, the wife of the hotel I lovely. Exceptionally helpful, polite an friendly and willing to help. A real joy.

The hotel room was lovely, facing the road, so we got the sun all day. Shower was lovely and spacious, although the shower head rarely stayed on, it was still a nice room. Tea and coffee available, and a mini bar at reasonable rates, with basic but nice continental breakfast available each morning, it was a pleasant stay.

The only thing, would be maybe tea and coffe making facilities be available in the room, but that's it. Fresh linen and towels every day. Where else do you get that?

We stayed here for two nights, it wasn't booked in advance ...we just showed up on spec. Immaculate hotel , very accomodating staff and a very relaxing atmosphere. There were two children in our party and they were made to feel very welcome.We will definitely return.

Room Tip: I'm pretty sure all the rooms are great but the rooms at the rear have a nice balcony

Lovely restored habana house in the centre of the village of Sant Pere de Ribes. The owners are attentive, helpful and fun.

The hotel's building is indeed full of character. Our room was elegantly decorated and spacious. But that's about it...

St Pere des Ribes turned out to be a gloomy small town, rather than a charming village.
The hotel's "gardens" are almost entirely taken by the swimming pool, overlooked by surrounding properties, with no privacy whatsoever. The outside area is not very well-kept. It would be more appropriate to describe the place as hostal/B&B or guesthouse.

The breakfast was very basic: lack of fresh bread, not the best quality food, croissants in plastic wraps - really disappointing.
