I just came back from Golden Sands, after staying one week with my friend in Shipka hotel. The location is very good, on the main street, near all the markets and shops, and it is about 5 mn walking to the nearest beach. The view from our 10th floor was nice (sea view) and the main street (even noisy at... More

Shipka is in a central position for all activities in Golden Sands esp. the nightlife. Everything starts there. It is a good hotel where u can find everything (supermarket, gym, a clean pool, spa, exchange service, etc.) And not far away from the beach.

Staff can scream at you.... woman can be treated as someone from the lower clas. They will take away your coffee or juice even before you have finished your breakfast, just to show that it is time for you to leave the table. If you go to beach and leave the key in the reception, key will be given to... More

The location if the hotel is in the most busy area in Golden Sands. Its near to everything and it has everything. The rooms are well prepared but more amenities should be added. Night clubs and restaurants just in 2 meters away from the hotel entrance, the beach is within 2 minutes walking. Good place to be accommodated in.

It depends on what U want to have. I've chosen a normal hotel for being not an expensive one. It has only 3 starts but as far I understood from comparison of my friends' 4 star hotels, it seems to be the same. The one thing that is different from 4* hotels is that towels and bedlinnen are changed once... More
