Great hotel with great location, even if its an old building, but nothing is missing...friendly staff, charming view, comfortable rooms, wifi service is good. Breakfast was ideal . Tne best thing ever is that its near the sea, good for a morning walk... it was a perfect vacation.

No, Odessos isn't in Golden Sands indeed but in the centre of Varna and it doesn't have a swimming pool so some of the reviews here don't apply to this property. The map though shows the right location. I have been few times in this hotel for the last few years and I wouldn't change it for any other in... More

I have been staying in this hotel for about 7 years now, and I am a little saddened by some of the reviews, it does not help that it is listed as being in sunny beach and it is an hour and a half away, maybe the hotel should hold its hand up and try and sort out what's going... More

The Hotel Odessos is a bit faded, but overall a decent place. It's well-located in downtown Varna, next to the Sea Gardens and a short walk to a municipal beach. It's just off the main promenade with plenty of bars, restaurants, and ice cream shops nearby. I had a view of the Sea Garden and Black Sea from my balcony.... More

Terrible food and drinks, the worst coffee I ever try to drink. Far away from the beach. Pleasent hotel stuff, very bad wi-fi connection. From reception they give just one electronic key. No way 4* hotel. Gabi Popescu

A bit faded is my most complimentary feel............Large soviet era block in reasonable location. Only a few yards from a nice park leading to the beach (which was probably nice in the 50's!). Room adequate but not anything spectacular. Breakfast in the cafe where you order from pictures! Very poor and at low tables which make it awkward to eat.... More

The hotel Odessos is located a few hundred meters from the beach on the main pedestrain street in Varna. The hotel is clean but poorly equipped for an hotel of this size and standing. The room was of a good size with a little balcony. The breakfast was very ordinary and the personnal not very friendly. Many didn't speak english... More

We booked the 3-star Odessos in Varna. At first we thought it was a four-star hotel. It is well located with its back to the city and its front on an attractive pedestriam mall. The rooms are fine, and the lobby attractive. We found that the restaurant had pedestrian food, but live music, maybe because it ws Saturday night. Very... More
