Pros: The staff were wonderful and went above and beyond for us. They upgraded our room without asking to an executive room and the views of the river were amazing. The location was excellent, close to the main pedestrian street with numerous shops, restaurants and bars. Ruse is a lovely city with many beautiful fountains that are lit up at... More

It's well over 10 years since I last stayed in this hotel -and there have been substantial improvements. Back then, it was grim, to say the least. Now, as Bulgaria - like most former East bloc countries - is trying to come to terms with modern tourism. the infrastructure is getting a facelift. Rousse is still pretty much off the... More

Dated eighties decor. The AC worked. Great bed. Clean bathroom and room. There seemed to be tiers of renovations - from never-renovated to recently renovated; we believe that we had one in the middle.

Stelyiana from reservation department was very pleasant and she made the booking process very enjoyable and painless. Check in/ Check Out was done very professional by a young man and... More

It is indeed one of the worse hotels I've visited. The room was very small, the bed was uncomfortable, the bathroom smelled, the facilities such as TV, chairs ,ect. were rather old and useless. The wifi was bad on the last floors. The only positive side was the view.

We stay at Riga hotel for one night during our trip to Bucharest. The main advantage of this hotel is the amazing view to Danube river from the rooms and from the panorama restaurant. We had an economic apartment on the 13th floor and the view is amazing. The apartment is big and comfortable, but absolutely worn-out , with old... More

I was going to rate the hotel as 'very good' because of the free room upgrade with great view of the Danube, nice room decor & bathroom fixtures, complimentary water, & friendly staff. I did not visit the gym or restaurant. What made me change the rating to 'excellent' was the the lady who served us at breakfast who was... More
