on our way back from Budapest we stopped for one night at this hotel in the nicest Bulgarian city. The staff is helpful, the rooms are ok. The breakfast included in the price. Reccommended for a stop in Bulgaria.

I booked 2 nights at this place for a stay in early June, 2014 as it was difficult to find rooms in Kazanlak (40kms away) where I wanted to be at the Rose Festival. Found the hotel easily, its got a good location by the train station in town. Checked in around noon, dropped off my stuff and drove to... More

Great location. Just outside the bus stand. Good staff. Very large rooms, large bathroom. Fast Wifi . Clean and reasonably priced. Though hotel has vacant rooms most of the time, thy don't allow late check outs without extra charge. Considering the industrial town of Stara Zagora, hotel seems to be decent and worth staying. Breakfast not upto the mark and... More

We stayed there for 1 night, wile on business trip. Hotel has underground parking, where we could leave the car for extra 2 hours, also following day after checking-out, witch was very convenient. Staff was greeting us kindly, the entrance and lobby of hotel is shiny and golden color dominated giving you that one minute dizzle moment. Room was spacious,... More

Big modern town centre hotel, close to transport and railway station. Large rooms, very comfortable with decent toiletries, free fast wi-fi, excellent bathroom and shower and quiet rooms at the back. Good breakfast, buffet style. For a couple of nights it was perfect.

I stayed in this hotel for one night, in September 2013. The staff in the reception was quite friendly but I was really cautious of what I would find upstairs. The room was quite OK. Quite spacious, very clean, there was nothing that I could be complained of... Free wi-fi, and at good connection, was also a plus. Just the... More

I am really could not see what the other reviews raved about here. Granted the hotel is spacious but that really was about it. The room was clean enough but everything was very tired and turning shabby. Admittedly the bathroom was fine. The service was appalling, no bar staff, towels not changed and soaps in the room not renewed daily.... More

It was just fabulous! We were in Stara Zagora for New Year's Party and made a reservation at this hotel, on the internet. We weren't sure what to expect, but hoped for the best. Our GPS took us just at the hotel entry. The receptionist, the bell boy, the parking valet, the maid were very kind and helpful. The rooms... More

Excellent place to stay in Stara Zagora. The room-a lux appartment- was spacious and very clean. The swimming pool very relaxing and the stuff from the spa reception very friendly and quite eloquent in english. The breakfast ,also, was exceptional: simple with great variety though of options. Nothing to complain about, except maybe from the lady in the reception desk... More
