I was very surprised about the hotel right from the entrance. Classical elegance and warm atmosphere - the best mix. Also, a sneak peak through the 'floor' revealed the ancient walls that 'grew' on almost every ground and 'ground minus' floor. Lovely rooms, actually huge apartments, in the exact opposite direction vs the usually smaller space, smartly (too smartly used)... More

I stayed here again for one night on my way home after a short holiday in Bulgaria. I'm pleased to confirm that everything was much the same as before. This is a hotel of high quality and it is easily the best hotel I've stayed in in Bulgaria. The room was very clean, and the top-quality toiletries from L'Occitane are... More

I used the gym as well as the sauna, and both was very nice! The only thing i didn't like, was the breakfast, it was very small and didn't... More

The Hotel has nice and big rooms. The rooms are clean and in perfect conditions. It is located very close to everything but in a side road. So there is no noise. The staff is friendly and speak a perfect English.

The hotel is splendid! The rooms are spacious, very clean and tidy. The bathrooms are perfect - huge bath tube and a separate bath cabin. The staff is nice, always smiling and helpful. Breakfast is also delicious, fresh and there is a vast variety of fruits, snacks, croissants, cakes, salami, cheese, etc. I've stayed five nights there and if I'm... More

Good hotel but unfortunately employees have bad habits. Two hours after check-in, under the false pretense to clean up my room, a hotel employee entered my room while I was having a shower and stole 750 Euro from my pocket. The regrettable event occurred at 15:24 on 17.3.2014 (s. picture). Although recently appointed, the new hotel management preferred to claim... More
