I've been there many times, the staff and the amenities were excellent. I've tried many hotels in Veliko Tarnovo, but this one is my favorite one, definitely. Good location, nice brekfast, huge rooms. Highly recommended!

It’s the 3rd time when we stay in this hotel. Last year I choose it, while passing through Veliko Tirnovo, on our way to Greece, because we had no reservation and it was the first decent hotel with free rooms; This year it was our first option, even if the reservation was made a few month before, by email, with...

We expected good things from this hotel given the high ratings other reviewers have delivered. We think it must have been a different hotel that they enjoyed! Certainly the location is good, the view quite nice and the staff on the front desk helpful and obliging. The room we had was large and the bed was good. That's where the... More

We had a regretfully short stay here. Its a lovely hotel overlooking the wooded valley. The rooms are very good with comfortable beds and plenty of room. The wet room is also big. Situated just off the level but with parking available its a walk away from most bars/restaurants in the town. There is a sun terrace at the rear... More

The good: underground parking, clean and cozy rooms, good breakfast, good Wi-fi connection The bad: no shower cabin, not even a curtain; there was water everywhere in the bathroom after taking a short shower

LOCATION - 2 minutes walk to the entrance in Tsarevets ROOMS - big, but with low quality things inside (kitsch thing pretending to be luxurious). BATHROOM - big, but bad smell (probably some problems with the sewering system). WIFI - OK BREAKFAST- cheap things (lowest quality METRO things put on the table), but with a nice terrace. PARKING - OK,

This family owned boutique hotel provided us an impeccably appointed room that was also immaculate. The seven year old property was built to exacting standards and reflects quality throughout the entire property. However, the highlight of our stay was an employee named Ivaylo Cholakov. This personable young man takes customer service to the highest possible level and is a true... More

The hotel is central situated, clean, comfortable, a very good choice for relaxation at a very good price. It has an underground garage. The staff was kind and helpful. It was a really pleasant staying.
