Weather was absolutely amazing for most of the time with only 2 days or should be nights we're it rained.about the hotel ,it is ideally situated just off the sunny beach strip area and literally a 10 minute walk to the beach and...

Avoid! There are much better places to stay in Sunny beach for less. I had big expectations based on the positives reviews here but this hotel is not any better than the neighbouring hotels Tia Maria and Bohemi. I wouldn't recommend it even for short stay.

This is a lovely small family run hotel. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms were basic but spotless and cleaned daily although bed linen and towels only changed every 3 days. Breakfasts the usual European fare but there was always something we enjoyed. Beach and busy centre are about 10/15 mins away but we preferred this as there... More

Just returned from 11 nights at Smolian and have had a great stay agian. Lovely breakfast, fresh everyday. Lovely and clean, staff was nice and friendly. Still got a little problem with the British citizens taking the sun loungers up early on a morning with their towels. Slightly tinged with sadness as Tanya had passed away, god bless you lovely...

We booked this as a late deal and when we first arrived I was a little disappointed, the decor was very dated, the beds were hard with just a mattress topper. There wasn't enough storage space and my 15 year olds bed was a sofa chair which fell to bits during the 2 weeks we were there. Now this hotel... More

Stayed here for a week (Aug 2015). The hotel itself has a terrible paint job and airs 'budget'. It is indeed a budget hotel (we paid £360.00 half board each for a week). Obviously for that sort of price our expectation was quite low and we planned on spending probably quite a lot of time at the beach. In reality,... More
