This is the second time in twelve months I have stayed at this hotel. I like the friendliness and helpfullness of the staff, the panoramic view across the valley and the balcony attached to the room. The bathroom is typical hotel ensuite style but does have abath. The shower over the bath tends to flood the room because it is... More

Very friendly staff. Good breakfast. Free parking. A great place to reach at the end of a long day. Stayed one night, left the car in the garage while we toured the city after checking out. Breakfast was ok. The best part was the view over the monument in the valley.

The hotel is well located and provides parking (that seems quite difficult to find in Veliko Tarnovo). Even if on the booking site we use said it is not necessary to book the parking spot, I would recommend announcing the hotel in case you arrive by car, as the parking seems to be quite small for a 15 floors hotel....

This is a comfortable hotel located right in the centre of town and within walking distance of the old fort. Our room was huge and had a massive terrace wit lovely views over the town and river, There was a huge bed and a very comfortable sitting area with sofa and table. The only disappointing aspect was the buffet breakfast.... More

When we stay in VT we stay at the Bolyarski. Nothing else compares to the quality of this hotel. This hotel is built in the center of Veliko Tarnovo on the side of a cliff so the views from the bedrooms are the best in VT from the upper floors. Car parking is accessed by a lift entrance from the... More

I stayed here for two nights on a trip to Bulgaria.Reception was clean and friendly, with a walkthrough to a great terrace for drinks and food. My room was 7 floors down from reception, which was initially disconcerting (I thought I would be in the cellar!) but quickly proved to be a significant bonus as it was facing out towards... More

This hotel, like many others in Veliko has a fabulous view over the river valley. Make sure you get a room facing the valley to enjoy this view. Our room looked out on the museum and the huge and beautiful statue of the 4 horsemen. Breakfast was served on the deck overlooking the valley. They also have a nice sized... More

Pleasant experience in double room that was called a suite by booking.com. We had a sleeping area and lounge area that had a balcony. Level was minus3 but this was fine looking over art gallery and monument, think I might have got vertigo at higher levels! Breakfast good. Only gripe would be bathroom as the whole floor got wet when... More

Hotel has a wonderful view, employees are hospitable and the food is above satisfactory. Drive from Sofia to the hotel is dreadful but in general worth the effort. The city itself reminds me of Italy to a certain extent. The castle located close by is a definite must

Good hotel with excellent location with great views over the town. Only 40m away from the craft street and easy walking distance from the Tsaravets castle. Situated in old town so wander through the streets below the hotel for real atmosphere. Has a room terrace restaurant (grill) plus another terrace restaurant lower down, both with stunning views. Also several very... More
