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...

This is a wonderful place to stay in Veliko Tarnovo. Perfect balance between comfort, moderate lux and authentic style. The place of the hotel is probably one of the best in Veliko Tarnovo. The restaurant is very nice!

This is a very chic hotel. The 3-rd floor room where my husband and I spent the Valentine s day week-end was very cute. We were able to see the stars in the night because there are windows in the ceiling. The staff is very friendly and very helpfull. The restaurant is beautiful decorated and the food is very good.

Everything was good. We took a new year package, very delicious food, very nice people, the new year program was interesting. The view from the balcony is nice. Only the problem was with the internet, it was disconecting all the time and we had to call to restart the router.

Wonderful place to spend a few or more days in Veliko Tarnovo! We booked this hotel for the new year's eve party and everything was as promised (parking place, the room with river-view, etc). The food at the restaurant is incredibly tasty and cheap and the staff is always smiling and willing to help you if you need something. Rooms... More
