Very old, very dusty and absolutely no go. This hotel needs to be completely redone! The breakfasts were poor and average. The room was average: used furniture, peeling paints, rough towels. But the surroundings and the resort was beautiful!!!

We love Bulgaria/ Usually we go to Albena, because it has good social structure. last time we stayed in Dobrudja on the 13th floor. We chose a room with the balcony. there were plastic chairs and a table at the balcony, we spent time there with pleasure. You see the sea in its splendour and a lot of swallows. Two... More

Unfriendly and very rude staff, old and not very clean furniture... There was a variety of food, but it was not tasty... One of the worst hotels I have been to. Albena is nice, but don't stay at this hotel!!! At least not until you hear it's been renovated.

The hotel is meant to be a 4 star, all I can say is that maybe it was a 4 star hotel in the 1960s or 70s but has not been updated much since so now it's more like a 2 to 3 star hotel. I stayed a month later than markmctaggart, also on the 7th floor too as this... More

Came for a 1 night break from Varna where I live to get away for the weekend. I love Albena and its a great place for kids and thought it'd be nice to have an evening meal and a few drinks without worrying about driving home. The room was cheap, especially for July (32 euro) and I had low expections... More

This hotel needs serious renovation of its rooms. Our room was small and smelled of old, the bathroom was stinky. They have put a baby crib which was wooden and broken and quite dangerous for a 1 year old baby. After my complaint it was changed. There was no remote control for the AC even after i asked for one.... More

We stayed here for 4 days in August 2010, I thought I stepped through a portal into a different time, I think the 1970's sounds about right. We were there with our family from Sofia and Plovdiv so the language was not a problem. We got two suites on the 16th floor so the views were absolutely stunning. It was... More
