Although the hotel has a great location in the old city of Plovdiv, it felt like staying in something like a prison or just if there is one place where you can feel the unfairness in this world that's it. We were given cheaper room than the one we paid for. At breakfast we were denied to have breakfast on... More

We had a wonderful family event organized at Boris Palace by thoughtful and attentive parents who wanted to celebrate the christening of their lovely daughter at Boris Palace restaurant. Beautiful venue in a historic town that should generate much European and world attention. Rightfully so. Everything was fine and lovely until Mr. Boris himself spoiled the evening with his rude...

May 2014: We are regular travellers to Bulgaria, in particular Pamporovo, staying in our ski rental apartment 17 Pine Lodge but had never visited Plovdiv. We did some research and booked this hotel for 1 night to have a look around the old city of Plovdiv. We liked it so much we stayed another night. Very nice hotel, gorgeous views... More

We enjoyed 2 nights at the Boris our rooms were spacious, clean, nice view, and luxuriously appointed. The owner Boris is a very charming fellow and was always at hand to assist. We had dinner upon the terrace both nights and enjoyed the experience immensely, along with the views of the Old Town, Restaurant, Piano Bar and all public areas... More

The hotel itself is charming, small, and has a really nice atmosphere. It doesn't have parking, and as it's placed in the middle of Plovdiv's Old Town, expect heavy boulders your car should climb on, and parking on a steep street. I definitely don't recommend if you don't have 4x4 or if you are not experienced driver. Burnt clutch smells... More

I wanted to show the place to my friends because I knew the view from the balcony is gorgeous. We intended to have dinner there. As we entered the owner came and I told in Bulgarian that we are walking around and I wanted to show my guests this place. Before I could continue to say that we are planning... More

We stepped into this hotel looking for a place to sit and some coffee. We have never been so rudely spoken to by anyone! Having read some other reviews I can certainly empathise with the people concerned. This is an owner who shows complete contempt to potential customers. We left.

Don't think you will be relaxing in Boris's ornate lounge or piano bar (as pics on web). This was out of bounds to us when we stayed for 4 nights and we were told it was only for 'meetings'. Don't dare to ask for a cup of coffee 3mins before the time you asked for breakfast or you will get... More

we were driving to Turkey and booked an overnight stop at Boris Palace. Read the differing reviews after booking and was a little unsure what to expect! There was no need to worry. The hotel is a real labour of love with work ongoing (which did not affect our stay). Boris is charming. The décor is fantastic (photos do not... More

So that is quite good looking place, very nice interior and decoration. However personnel is absolutely not friendly and even rude. I went here after a long walk through the historic center of Plovdiv and was very surprised to find no reasoned contemptuous attitude of the staff to the customers. You do not need our money? Not a problem. Nearby... More
