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

I love the hotel. very friendly staff. The location of the hotel is ideal. Very near the Historic sights and just in the heart of the city. Great restaurants. The hotel it self is very cute! They will bring you breakfast in the room. I loved that.

I stayed in VT for 5 nights in March 2011. The Hotel is very close to Tsaravets, which is a great place to visit and also not so far away from the High Street. The hotel itself is very clean and all the staff are very friendly. The room we stayed in was very spacious and the bathroom was a... More
