We stayed here for 1 night while travelling from Sofia to North-East Bulgaria. We took one of the "suites" which in fact was nothing more than a large room with 2 beds in it, as well as a standard bathroom. There is a sauna as well, which we didn't have time to use. A lot of the decor is quite... More

We booked this hotel at the last minute for NYE. Took the last 2 rooms and were even offered a discount. The hotel itself is nothing special but the staff makes it outstanding. As an added bonus, this is the first hotel in Bulgaria where I was able to sleep through the night. Noise was absent and walls seem very... More

Great location. Good breakfast. Super friendly staff. Our room had a lovely panoramic view of the city of Veliko Turnovo and the Tsarevets Fortress. We were able to enjoy the amazing sound and light show while having a glass of local wine in our room. The castle buildings and walls are bathed in colour and the changes are accompanied by... More

First of all, if you want a hotel in Veliko Tarnovo that has an (very nice) outside pool, then it's simple, because Premier is the only option. But not only for this. The prices are very affordable, both for the accommodation itself and also for food and services (massages, spa, etc). As for the staff, I could not afford to... More

I've stayed at a number of different hotels in Veliko over the years and decided to try the Hotel Premier. I was not impressed. It's a very standard hotel, I never got around to visiting the roof-top pool since I'm not a fan of hotel pools, but I can say the Hotel Gurko in Veliko is a much better choice... More

I think that all the people who have this a 5 star rating must be the family and friends of the people working here. It just can't be true. This hotel is a 2 star at best. It's faded and uncared for. The breakfast is cheap and nasty,the lift is tiny.

I love Veliko Tarnovo as a city and have stayed at Premier back when it was part of Best Western couple of years ago. Stayed this years again. Breakfast is below average and the entire equipment of hotel, including beds, bathroom, etc. is very dated and in need of renovation/replacement. Next time I am in the city I would check... More

I spent few days here, being the place where my company organized an international event. Well, the rooms, the staff, the place, the location are OK, not really as for a 4 stars hotel bot closely. Regarding the services, these are far from a 4 stars hotel; maximum 3 stars hotel may accept that quality of services. the breakfast, lunch... More

The PREMIER is a modern hotel, well managed at reception, tidy, well serviced, absolutely central to town, useful if you visit Veliko by bus, whose station is quite close, as well as are the old town and the many shopping attraction. Over the phone we were offered an expensive room, but with booking.com we got excellent price. Breakfast is not... More
