Stayed at the Hotel Riga after a gruelling 83 mile cycle ride in the hot sun and with a dodgy knee...from the outside it's not the best looking, tall tower block of old school communist design that you might choose to pass by. Staff were instantly helpful and friendly, storing bikes securely and we were upgraded to better rooms, I... More

The building is horrible from outside , but inside they are restoring most of the floors. Floor 10 where I was is really nice fresh and clean. The reception is managed by a smiling girl able to answer most of the questions. A 40 minute massage only 20 lev... That' a life!!!

This is an old soviet style hotel. It's not bad, but old... They have a few newly renovated rooms on the top floors, these are "European standard". Spend your money on these... They are still half the price from Europe... And with a great view over the city and river. Breakfast was not so good, here they still have something... More

We happened to be in Ruse and spent one night in this hotel. Location is good and the view over the river was beautiful, but that was all about it. As we were staying only one night we wanted to book a standard room. However we were prompted at the reception to upgrade to a "standard plus" and advised to... More

I knew nothing about ruse when I arrived and was surprised to find such quality standards. Rooms were very clean and smelled pleasantly. From the 10th floor I had an amazing view of the river and city. This is a full service hotel with all the amenities you will need. The only thing better than the room was the panoramic... More

We had 1 night at this wonderful hotel. We were upgraded and had a beautiful suite which was huge, clean and had lovely views over the Danube. We were greeeted by fresh fruit and handmade truffles in our room. The staff at the hotel are friendly, approachable and the service is excellent - far beyond anything else we experienced anywhere...

Old hotel with nice location, good breakfast= The room is terrible, too small, with old towels and blanket, with terrible old bathroom. This hotel is 1 *, not 3*. It is too expensive for that poor room I shall never go there again
