Urh Sitges Playa Hotel
Ranked #18 of 40 Hotels in Sitges
Reviewed 9 May 2016

I spent one night here, and it was nearly ideal. It's a 10 minute easy walk from the train station, and with a 30 minute train ride from Barcelona, I was door-to-door in an hour. The hotel is located as close as possible to the beach, and even in my room on the side, I could hear the sea and see it from the small balcony. The room was larger than average for a European hotel, featured a safe, and a frig (there's a small market on the ground floor), free wi-fi, basic bathroom amenities, decent lighting, and 2 working outlets (one did not function). The HVAC worked well, and the room was quiet (except for one person screaming on the street below at 3 AM). The breakfast (buffet for 14 euros) was not included but I had coffee in the very cozy restaurant. Theres a small workout room with new, better than average equipment that adjoins small, oval swimming pool. The hotel is adjacent to the central shopping area, 5 minutes from the 2 good museums in one direction and 10 minutes from the port (great seafood restaurants) in the other direction to the north. The service was efficient and with a smile. It's a bit pricey at 195 euros for a "city view" room, and waterfront rooms were almost twice as much. I had a room on the side with a corner view of the Mediterranean. San Sebastian Plaza makes its money and its reputation from its location on its namesake beach. It was too cold (for me) to swim, but I'll be back later in the year. It's 5 minutes from room to surf.

Room Tip: Best views are fronting the sea, but to save money ask for a side room with a sea view from balcony

Hotel is located right on the beach and has a nice swimming pool and sitting area attached. The rooms are well equipped and clean. No coffee/tea making available. Balconies though small are nice. Staff are friendly and efficient, particularly Ann Marie. The gym area has sufficient equipment and seems well maintained. The cost for car parking is excessive at c. €18 per night. The cafe/restaurant which is almost separate from the hotel has adequate food but is not comfortable for a drink. The staff there seem keener to have people leave than encouraging customers. The hotel cost is about average for the area. 7 minutes walk from the train station which will take you to Barcelona in 40 mins. Cost €8-40 return. Hotel is mostly recommended

Obviously renovated, although, I would not have chosen slick polish carrara marble throughout, as it was a little dicey to walk and not slip. All staircases, rooms, and the like were marble. Small balconies, ( they need to cut back the birds of paradise to actualize the view). Bedroom and bath were fine. Internet connection was good. Restaurant was not very up to par. Very skimpy breakfast for 14 EU. Nice coffee though. The diing room at night had mediocre food. Service in restaurant was sketchy. Front desk were helpful.
If I owned this place, I would install a sauna, steam room ( separate sexes), and a Massage room for clients. Instead you have to go all over to get a massage.
They need either to paint or replace the chairs on the small balconies. too crowded and tacky.

Room Tip: front side rooms are best.. the one in the rear of the side street have no view at all.

Clean, nice rooms, good service, good restaurant but what makes the difference is the location: you can find other hotels in Sitges with the same qualities as above but here there is no traffic or noise for the simple reason there isn't a road between the hotel and the beach. Only taxis are allowed to get there and if you stay long enough to get bored with their room service or bar/restaurant, a few steps away there's plenty of choice.

Room Tip: Room facing the beach with a terrace.

Overall, the hotel was a decent place to stay with a great location right on the smaller of Sitges' two beaches. The train station is an easy 5 minute walk, so connections to Barcelona couldn't be simpler. Several restaurants, bars, and shops are located nearby.

As for the hotel itself, the facilities were generally very clean, but the hotel itself is a bit dated. The rooms are a touch on the small side, but all seem to include a small and pleasant balcony. There's plenty of room for a couple, but a family would require two rooms. The internet service can be a bit spotty, but it's free. The bed was comfortable.

Bottom line: if your top priorities are cleanliness and location, then this hotel is a good option. If you're looking for a luxurious hotel with lots of amenities, then you might want to look elsewhere.
