I am absolutely gobsmacked that anyone could rate this hotel very good or excellent. If this is the best in town, as I was told, than I would hate to see the other properties. I have stayed in many hotels in many cities and this is the second worst in my entire life. (The worst being in Manta, Ecuador.) The... More

This hotel has a restaurant with a panoramic view of the city's fortifications. If you are lucky a group will have scheduled for the fortification's laser light show to be performed at dark. Controlled from the dining room of the hotel it is the only place you can hear the audio (music & effects) that accompany the presentation. Well worth... More

Stayed here for one night. We were given a room a above the reception area and front entrance. Since it is a nonsmoking hotel everyone had to go outside to smoke which was right below our room so I smelled cigarette smoke all night long. In addition the room and towels/sheets smelled like cigarette smoke. Being highly allergic to smoke... More

We checked in to this hotel. The service and front office service was excellent. The rooms were basic, but spacious and clean. I would recommend this to any one on the go via Veliko Turnavo to rest their heads and tired feet while travelling across the Balkans.

Second time here in five weeks. Thanks to work. Great hotel. Lovely staff. Great views of the fortress from the restuarant. 400 metres from the old town. Really recommend. Unfortunately never had the time for the leisure centre. Five star 1990 style with new additions

Stumbled upon this hotel while motorcycling through Bulgaria. Nice staff who accommodated us with inside parking for the bikes. The restaurant is awesome with a great view of the old fortress from their balcony. We experienced a surprise show of lights dancing around the fortress synchronised with music, from the restaurant.

Our overall experience at the hotel was positive - that is why the 4 stars. First of all, welcome and check-in was great - very professional staff, friendly and polite. Our rooms were big and very well cleaned, but everything (doors, furniture, TV etc ) have been there for many-many years -along with the purple carpet. Breakfast was very good... More

I ve been several times in Veliko Tărnovo but never stayed in yantra hotel because it was always fully booked. What I can say is that the view In the morning is amazing both from room and from restaurant during breakfast. The rooms are huge, ok, it needs a kind of renovation but they are more than satisfactory. The hotel... More

First the good- our room had fabulous view of the city from our balcony. The room itself was like stepping back in time into a purple velour cave. Everything was plum colored and smelled like too much perfume. We only stayed one night so it was ok. The on-site hotel was very good serving traditional local food.
