I stayed here with my 16 year old daughter from 18th to 25th August 2014. We booked up 2 weeks before we travelled with Balkan and requested a pool view which we were given. All of the staff were very friendly, rooms were cleaned daily and having read the reviews about getting a bed around the pool, thought we would... More

We chose this hotel because we had been advised by Balkan holidays that it was wheelchair user friendly, not so, there were ramps but they were so steep you could never push someone in a chair up and down then single handed, they required 2 very strong fellow guests to get my husband up into the reception area.the so called...

I stayed here with my mum who is 73 and my daughter who is 17 from 8th to 15th August 2014. The rooms are basic but like the rest of the hotel it was very clean and well run. I probably wouldn't stay half board again as the food its very cheap to eat out and you get more variety... More

I've just got back from a week at the Hotel Smolian with a friend. We booked via Balkan Holidays and at just £615 for a week's bed and breakfast for both of us, we had fairly low expectations, despite the good reviews on here. That said, we were pleasantly surprised with the Smolian. First thing to say is how clean... More

I dont normally write reviews but i think this hotel deserves one! Stayed for 2 weeks on a self catering basis in august 2013. Hotel & flight cost me just over 700 for me and my partner, therefore i wasnt expecting much from the hotel. It may not be the best looking hotel as theres plenty of fields all around... More

Stayed here with my partner the first week of August. Had a very warm welcome as soon as we got to the hotel from other guests there (mainly British). The staff were all very polite and all spoke English very well. The bar staff in particular were excellent and we're extremely attentive. An absolute asset to the hotel. Any food... More

My husband and I have just got back from a stay at this hotel and we had a fantastic time. The staff Tania and George on reception were very efficient and answered any questions we had about the holiday. Kiril and Slavi in the dining room were the most hard working people I've seen in a hotel, they literally do... More

Third stay at this hotel which as usual for it's rating I couldn't fault. Staff, cleanliness and food great. Loads of regular faces and warm welcomes. Normally this hotel has had a good mix of guests but this year a lot of larger groups more suited to partying throughout the night to morning stayed and their enjoyment unfortunately ruined the...
