The Grand Ivan is a recent, well maintained family owned hotel which is situated in a very quiet area of Varna. The staff was very friendly and accomodating to our requests and have gone the extra mile to find a solution that suited everyone. We spent 3 nights, split in two different rooms, one suite, one 2 person bedroom. Airconditioning... More

The hotel owner improperly expensed amount for regular travel cancellation. Although the precise conditions of cancellation - zero cancellation fee, the owner of the hotel expensed the cost of the stay on the booking day. Untrustworthy behavior ! Attention !

While the hotel is nice, they quote one price and then add hefty surprise fees at the end of your stay. The receptionist told me they would take care of the charges and I should speak to the owner. I tried several times to call him, e-mail him and he never replied. He is a crook and just wants to... More

Good location , nice Hotel terrace with the pool. Hotel is medium size. Maybe 60-70 people when it's full. Now that was the good news... Bad news is that hotel owner is not giving you anything you may expect to receive in a hotel with 3 stars... Towels - Only hand towels...no full size towels?!? Breakfast - same every day.... More

Just returned from a 10 day stay at the Ivan, Bol. On the outside the hotel is attractive with nice grounds, pool etc. The room itself (superior apartment) was very clean but also very basic. Their website does say that there is a kitchenette to make light meals and they weren't kidding (we ate out all the time so it... More

as most of the reviews for this hotel say, the place itself is actually ok. I have not checked out the spa etc downstairs as it has the charm of fritzls dungeon. The hotel owner however is more than a crook and he will make your stay as uncomfortable as possible. Make sure you take a picture of the room... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a Vantage Travel group. The lobby and grounds are lovely, but the rooms are disgusting. Tiny, with old, lumpy mattresses on the bed. Poorly functioning air conditioning. The worst part was the noise level - entertainment and partying till the wee hours in the lobby, but as the lobby is in... More

As pointed out by other reviewers, the hotel is quite close to the town but very far from the Zlatni Beach. But beware that it's quite steep up to the hotel from the town and ferry harbour. We found the breakfast quite good, the bread is fresh etc but we didn't like the fact that some items that should be... More

We found booking accom in Bol on relatively late notice very difficult and decided to take Ivan on even with the above reviews in mind. It does have a pool, A/C, large rooms, nice location, nice property etc and therefore proabably qualifies as 4 star I guess or at least boutique. But in reality it is a 3 - 3.5... More

The owner of this Hotel is a Crook! Double check your credit card statement if you stayed in this hotel because, they will charge you a deposit and not subtract it from the bill at check out. We got back home and our credit card statement s showed a FULL charge for the stay, and they went ahead and charged... More
