There is such a beautiful landscape around this hotel that is so pitty not be of high standards in terms of services. The room was large but seems to be empty; lack of style, of fancy, of something .... The parking to limited in places and the other parking is 300 m far from the hotel. At 8 pm we... More

Room 318 is satisfactory. There is a desk/chair, television, mini bar, and occasional chair. In addition, there is a very low to the floor double bed (which is quite hard) with two night stands. The armoir would hold several articles of clothing if there were many hangers. The hallway has motion-detector lights; they don't work as well as I would... More

Yantra sits on a prime location, overlooking the Veliko Tarnovo Fortress which is walking distance from the hotel. The fortress itself is superb, with the river below in the gorge winding its way almost completely around the base of the fort like a moat. Choose a room that faces the fortress for a perfect view , both day and nighttime,... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night. The room was huge but looked kind of out dated with its furnishings and decor. The view from the window was of the streets and not of the castle as some of the luckier guests had! They had a souvenir shop on the ground floor with over enthusiastic sales people accosting one...

Many times in Tarnovo and always in some other hotel but now I have found one I will not change. Excellent location, very helpful staff, comfort and spacious rooms, very good wifi. Only the TV could be bigger screen and more international channels. I will definitely return here when i visit Tarnovo again.

Don't understand why reviewers discuss how many stars this hotel should have. Keep in mind that It is a medium size hotel in a very small town in the mountains in Bulgaria. This small town is included in Balkan group bus tours because it is a logical place to stop and it has an interesting old castle and fortified walls.... More

Rooms a little out dated but clean. Great view of tsarevets. Spa very nice. Food is average. Great views of the nightly light show on the castle. Hotel has great location, Have not stayed in any other hotel in town but looks to be one of the better hotels. It is not a 4 star hotel more like a mid... More

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
