This hotel was just OK. Food was more catered for Germans. We ended up eating out for every lunch and dinner. The food was cheap enough so we didn't mind. Hotel was basic and nothing much going on so we ventured out every day. There are plenty of shops and tourist stalls however most sell the same thing. We would... More

Huge room, modern look, renovated, sound proof, very clean with sea view...the best room I had in varna and... More

Viva Hotel is good. Staff are lovely, helpful and friendly. The hotel wasn't the problem. Varna was. Not sure of it's place on the summer sun scale. It's not cheap, prices near enough akin to Euro. Sometimes more. Beaches are great but 30 Lev for sunbeds per day? Not on. There's nothing to do in the evening other than drink.... More

On arrival at the hotel in the silly hours of the morning we were offered food and drink before retiring to our room. We never took advantage of this, but were grateful nonetheless. The room was immaculately presented and had everything you needed, fridge that works, air con that will happily freeze you to the very core if you so... More

I travelled here with Balkan holidays and following a 9 hour delay, the warm welcome I received from the receptionist was just what was needed. Food was available despite it being 3.30 in the morning and check in was quick. I had emailed and requested a room on the 7th floor, but was on the 4th floor (which I did... More
