Ugly rooms (nothing in common with the pictures on their site), old, shabby furniture. The indoor pool was neglected too. There was mould on the ceiling and the water didn't seem quite clean. The all inclusive food was terrible, the wine too. Maybe the only alcohol suitable to drink was the beer. The two good things that we saw in... More

In the summer of 2013 I was there and it was awful! The room wasn't so clean, the bath was terrible and the food was the worst. I was there with all inclusive, but I didn't eat more then 1-2 meals. And if this wasn't enough, a client of the hotel tells me that somebody stolen his notebook while he... More

Stuck in time for 30 years or so. Soviet mentality. Only rooms were cleaned very well, the all women at the reception would fire the same day same with bartenders. Only 2 of them were proffesional enough. One of the others was showing his disapointment of where I come from by using offensive words, another one tried to check me... More

Very dated hotel. Rude bar staff, if they didn't understand you just got a small plastic cup of anything given to you. Pool was the only nice bit. Food was awful (from a non fussy eater). Same bad quality food every day. We ended up eating out every evening and ate mcdonalds at lunch time. All inclusive not even worth... More

At first reading reviews here, i was really doubtful about this hotel. But actually it was not this bad at all. Price vs. Quality relationship was very good. Rooms are pretty nice, nothing spectacular, but for sleeping nothing bad. Rooms where cleaned every day! Each room has separate AC, TV (nothing special, but ok), Fridge. Our room did not have...

At first I was a little bit afraid to go to this particular hotel, because of all the bad reviews, but really it was actually quite good. I have many nice things to say about the Pliska hotel. First, the staff was very friendly, made jokes and helped us when we needed. The only unpleasant experience was, when we spoke... More

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
