I am really disappointed with my stay at Hotel Pliska. I knew the hotel is very old, i had seen pictures of rooms and other facilities but in real it was worse. There is only one elevator for guests and staff, we decided to take the stairs but with no signs of floor numbers we were lost between floors. Finally... More

The hotel has a very good location. It is clean and welcoming. I was there with three other people and we had booked All-Inclusive for 2 nights. Rooms are well heated. They are good but nothing special, cable tv, a fridge, and a balcony. There is an indoor swimming pool, which is fantastic - water temperature of 32 degrees celcius... More

Take the description in the travel brochure with a pinch of salt. The promo photo shown above must have been the only time when all of the lights worked. Ok so the rooms were clean and serviced every day, fridge is a nice touch, TV only showed Bulgarian programs. Out on the balcony the light didn't work, nor did anyone... More

Rooms were basic but clean, sheets and towels changed five days out of six. The fridge in the rooms is a good idea but of course it only works when you are actually in your room. Only one English language TV channel...True 2, ok if you want rubbish films, Little House on the Prairie or The Waltons! Breakfast was disgusting,... More

The hotel was dated and very run down, the staff were not friendly or helpful, the food was horrible, reheated or over cooked, nothing was labelled so you had no idea what you were eating and it was repetitive, the hotel owners ate every night in the hotel, they certainly were not eating the food in the buffet, you were...

Pliska is a cheap and cheerful hotel situated in a convenient spot in Golden Sands, Rooms are small, clean and adequate. Nothing fantastic but ok. You can go Bed and Breakfast, half board or all inclusive. If you want you can upgrade when you arrive to All Inc but the fiod was terrible so I wouldn't bother. We went B&B... More

The hotel its self is ok. Most staff are generally helpful. However, the food is unedible most times. I was there for a fortnight on a half board basis, wish I only had B&B because that was bad enough. Most food which should have been hot was cold and things like fruit juice and cut fresh fruit were warm. Wasnt... More

Hotel reception very friendly and helpful. Still best value is to just go B & B, as outside restaurant and bars offer better standard food and choice. At the Admiral Hotel is an, on the hour, and 15 minutes sequence, train trip through the coastal road, as far as the marina, with 4 excellent bar/restaurants at the end, with such... More

Just returned from a weeks stay at Hotel Pliska, and me and my husband thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is basic, which we were aware of, but we found it adequate. The location is good, though not ideal for people with walking difficulties.. We went B&B as we prefer to eat at different places. The food did not look very... More
