A perfect place for a queit vacation. Fantastic building close by the trainstation of Sitges. The rooms are fantastic. Old features. Nice tiled bathroom. Wonderful coloured windows. Tasty brekfast. And fantastic dinner if you choose to eat in! It takes maximum 10 minutes to walk to the beach. The walk is through a nice cobblestoned town/village. I could easily go...

We fell in love with this charming hotel with its exquisite archetecture, decor and attention to detail. It's an experience living in this historic building and it's beautiful courtyard. Breakfast is repeat with freshly squeezed juices served under a canopy of trees. Highly recommended!

What a wonderful treat this little charming old hotel has been. Stayed here for 4 days and felt like we transported back into an golden age with beautiful pressed ceilings and the most amazing pieces of old furniture. Breakfast at the pool each morning was great. Really worth staying. Highly recommended.

Close to the station but only a short walk to the beach. Nice and quiet. Large clean rooms full of old world charm. Breakfast terrace in the garden around the pool is a lovely setting with basic continental style offering. Staff friendly and helpfull. Lovely building would stay again.

This quirky and charming hotel is far enough from the bars and clubs of Sitges party centre to be quiet and restfull but close enough to enjoy everything Sitges has to offer. The rooms are large, comfortable, clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Although the breakfast isn't the best and is a little sparse it is served...

This is the third time I have eaten at El Xalet and it will unfortunately be the last. We dined there with a group of friends last week and, whilst the food was excellent and beautifully presented, the service was slow and extremely rude. I had to ask for our order to be taken three times and when the waitress...

This truly is a beautiful, historical building, with loads of character. Unfortunately not all the facilities at the hotel were open because it was mid May. The website on Booking.com did not say anything about the restaurant being closed over certain periods and this was one of the reasons we booked to stay there as it looked very charming dining...

Our friends stayed in the hotel for a few nights and we visited for evening drinks. The hotel and garden area is beautiful. The garden was a lovely place to while away a couple of hours enjoying the many cocktails and beers on offer. Walking distance from the train station and a short walk (10 mins) to the beach.
