We cannot praise Hoel Gurko enough. We spent four nights with them in an absolutely excellent room and then three more because we changed our polans about where we were moving next. The second room was not quite so good but we coild not complain because most rooms were already booked and we were lucky to get one. Both rooms... More

We stayed here in June 2014, en route from Varna to Montenegro. Our room (#19) was huge, with a great bathroom, but it didn't have the sort of view that the front rooms get (maybe it was cheaper? We didn't ask, so don't know, as it was one of their last rooms). It is close to the main streets of... More

Fabulous location in Veliko's Old Town on a narrow street with a sharp drop down to the river below and great views. Our room was spacious and had a balcony which was lovely. Breakfast was basic but good. Staff were smiling and helpful but had limited English language. Would stay there again both for location and wonderful traditional Bulgarian atmosphere.... More

Everything was perfect with them. The value for the money is huge. Clean rooms, impressive "old" furniture, got a room with a super nice view too. Everything worked and the lady from the reception was very helpful and kind. You can park your car in the garage too which was great. Best hotel in Veliko Tanovo by far.

We chose this hotel because of its good reviews on Tripadvisor and I guess we were pretty satisfied. It's a charming little place with fantastic views. Our room on the top floor was clean enough but the furnishings were starting to look a touch tatty and the bed was really uncomfortable. Nice views from our balcony though. We ate dinner... More

Travelled to Veliko Tarnovo in May 2014 with 4 lady friends. The service was very good, from the very proactive attitude of the hosts that parked our car in the garage to the luggage help we got and the spacious rooms with nice view. The street is rather narrow but you can still find parking places. The way to the... More

I have stayed there several times. The roomes are big, the location ist great in an old quarter with a great view and the prices are reasonable. Also go to the restaurant, they offer great "vkusno" Bulgarian dishes (try the "tschuke burek"). Several Bulgarians told me, that this is typical Bulgarian cuisine.

Just got back from a weekend at the Gurko in Bulgaria. This little hotel is loaded with character! The dining room has a huge fireplace and plenty of Bulgarian flavour. We loved it here! We sat outside each morning in the sun and drank out coffee before tucking into the delicious breakfast (included) and the hospitality was very welcoming. Rooms... More

We had a very nice stay for two nights at Gurko Hotel in February 2014. We were accommodated with a studio room which was a nice fit for my wife and I and 4 small children. It was quiet, and central,with a nice view of the river. On the first day we could smell cigarette smoke on our floor, but... More

The hotel has a perfect location – right in the heart of the very picturesque old town with easy access to downtown and the historic hill Tsarevets. Most rooms have superb view to the meander of river Yantra just opposite to the Assenides monument. Rooms are very clean and spacious with stylish wooden furniture. The hotel is family-run and the...
