The hotel has good location, in the old city center. The owner does not speak english except some employees.The hotel has several types of rooms but we had a pretty bad room: no balcony, dirty tiles in all room, twin bed, shower broken, odour in all the room, no safe. Parking is public, unpaved with limited seating (about 6).The food... More

This small hotel offers great deals and is located near the fortress and the old town. I don't know why it is rated only with 2 stars as it's service definetly worths more. Big modern room, big breakfast, very clean. Only inconveniences were the noisy street above which was the room and the noisy refrigerator.

Was our first accommodating in Bulgaria. We felt just perfect. They give as room no. B (yes a letter not a number) from the first floor. The room was huge with a very nice balcony facing the superb panorama of Tsarevets and Trapezitsa Fortress and hills (BTW the proximity to Tsarevets Fortress (5 min walking) increase the deal). The Yantra... More

Very nice hotel with perfect location. From the balcony you can see the fortress. We booked a double room but got the apartment at the same price. Very good value for the money and the receptionist was very calm and polite. we had half-board, the dinner was great, drinks are not included but are cheap (1 Euro for a beer).... More

As an overall experience the hotel does fine with a good location, comfortable rooms and breakfast and dinner included. It's when you look at each of the items separately that the little things take away from the overall experience. Checking in was a bit of a hassle as I made the reservation on booking.com when I arrived in Veliko Tarnovo... More

The location is great, right on the river in the heart of Veliko Tarnovo. The rooms have AC and wi-fi. Unfortunately, that's where the pros end. Although parking is advertised as one of the facilities, do not be fooled. The parking area is a small dirt patch next to the hotel, big enough for barely 5-6 cars. That would be... More

Great location next to citadel, nice room, very cheap for services (HB included). A nice cheap medieval city with restaurants and bars where You can enjoy a good meal and walk. The citadel is amazing and I recommend for everyone to visit old city who's on the way to Greece from Romania or other purpuses.

This place is well located for the main town and the Tsarevets Fortress. However, the rooms are very basic and the man on reception when we checked in, although friendly, spoke no English which is unusual. If you are operating on a budget then this is a very good choice as you also get a decent breakfast out of it.... More
