The service was good. The people were polite and helpful. The room was fine, enough space for a reasonable price. There was space for our car which is good. The pool was big enough but the water was a little bit cold. The fitness department looked ok. The vapourbath was small but efficient. I really enjoyed it. I was especially... More

Ruse is a little provincial Bulgarian town on the Romanian-Bulgarian Danube border, about an hour and a half drive away from Bucharest, capital of Romania. And currently under occupation. Of seagulls. Just 5 minutes’ walk from the Danube embankment, which in itself is a nice walk, there is a nice large park with old trees and benches and fountains and... More

I don't come to Rousse often, but everytime I do I look forward to this hotel. I find it cozy and friendly. Top 3 things I like about it: 1. The service: I love that it has room service and that the staff is always very friendly and accomodating. It's like visiting an aunt: I get anything I ask for.... More

Good central location but otherwise nothing special but not expensive. Pool a bit small but adequate for serious swimmer.You have to make an appointment to have a steam bath. poor breakfast with ghastly music. However, they turned it down when asked

Following a previous stay I rated this hotel with a "4"...now it struggles to get a "2". Let's start at the beginning. (1) As we struggled with a car load of luggage, the bell man stood around with his hands in his pockets and did not even offer to help us. (2) I had requested a room with two single... More

Probably the first private hotel in Ruse, integrated in Best Western intl chain, the hotel is little tired. Clean rooms, nice personnel, but the hotel has nothing attractive. Good location

My stay was very enjoyable and I would return to this hotel. My room was clean and modern, the price was very affordable, and the staff was helpful and professional. I have stayed in four star hotels in western Europe and in the USA that were not as nice as this hotel.

The customer service was miserable! It was my mistake that I didn’t check out the reviews online about this hotel, but because my trip was so sudden I had no choice. First thing when I arrived I asked if there is a high speed Internet, which I needed for conference call with Australia. I was advised that I would be... More

This small hotel is in a great location. Very clean, very comfortable beds, great buffet breakfast which included a bowl of mixed fresh fruit , attractive dining room and a pleasant terrace. Helpful front desk. Free internet. Of all the hotels we stayed in during our two weeks of Bulgarian travel this was the best. A bit more expensive than... More
