I loved Hotel Tarnava. I had a great room, large, very clean with a bathroom en suite and there was also an outside balcony. The location could not be better, being right in the heart of the old part of town and all the interesting sights. The breakfast was very good too, fresh and plenty of it. The lady (Desi... More

Had a really lovely stay at Hotel Tarnava. You cant ask for a better location - right in the center of town and just a few hundred meters from the fortress. The staff was friendly and very helpful, they helped me organize local transport and suggested a few other sights in the area. The room was very clean, the wifi... More

For two weeks this hotel was my home while I was looking for a home. I had a wonderful room, small terrace and each morning great Bulgarian hospitality and breakfast choices. For what I paid it was an amazing value. Since I have stayed there they have installed central air and heating and have updated many of the rooms. The... More

I am not sure if the poor reviews this hotel has received are genuine - I find it hard to believe they can be, but if they are then clearly they must be only used to 5* impersonal hotels. I can honestly say is that since last visiting this hotel the place has really changed - and all for the... More

The location is what made us choose the hotel. But that's the only positive thing about it. It was so dirty and disgusting ...There were tones of dust on the table, on the chairs, on the TV and even oh the water glasses.

The hotel is very close to the fortress and within walking distance to a choice of restaurants. That's about as positive as I can get as the hotel itself was very disappointing. The rooms are very dated with an attempt at updating them which is shoddy to put it kindly. The bathroom was damp and all fittings either leaked or... More

I found this hotel on-line without recommendations and how fortunate I was. It is perfectly situated between Tsavarets Fortress and downtown where the restaurants and shops are. The interior decoration from what I saw was all wonderful (I was in the first room in the hotel so I didn't venture far inside). The bed was comfortable and the room was... More
