Ive believed Lonely planet guide and didnt regret it. Great service, clean, quiet, nice garden with live music (owner plays himself:-) Food and wine at the resto were fine. We loved it a lot. Easy to find while driving from Gabrovo.

We only stayed here one night as we were exploring the Thracian Tombs and were very surprised to find this little pearl (as someone else has called it). Shipka is a very nice little village with much more to see than we had expected. The host couple were so nice and spoke excellent English which we really enjoyed for the... More

First of all "Hotel" may be a misnomer here. And that's a good thing. With the quality and level of personal attentiveness we received from Tosha and Ivan, "Bed and Breakfast" or "Pension" would be more apt descriptions. The location is very nice, Shipka a quaint Bulgarian "Village" where time has stood still for the last 30 years.Lovely to explore... More

Shipka IT Hotel is a clean cozy hotel. With few dining options in Shipka, attached restaurant provides a small but well-cooked selection of meals. The breakfast is also tasty and plentiful. The rooms are simply furnished but spotlessly clean, as is the entire hotel. One of the double rooms boasts a balcony, but we chose the apartment. On the top... More

We stayed here recently for four days and it was one of the highlights of our three week trip to Bulgaria. The area itself is full of interest, with the Thracian tomb and museums of Kazanlak very easy to reach, plus another Thracian tomb and the Russian Orthodox Church in Shipla itself. There's also the Shipka Pass Monument plus another... More

This was the most basic of the hotels we stayed in on our tour of Bulgaria. The hosts were welcoming and charming and are clearly trying hard to offer a good service. Mostly they are succeeding, but beds are rather hard, bathrooms were clean could do with upgrading a bit (no need for luxury), towels need replacing with cotton ones... More

The Shipka IT Hotel is a very nice place to stay. Finding the place is easy, there are signs all over town (a welcome change after previous experiences in Bulgaria). The first thing i noticed is how clean it is, from the lobby to the garden and the rooms. The rooms are big enough and have a great view over... More

We stayed one night in the two room apartment. Ivan and Tosha the owners were just delightful, we really enjoyed our chats with them on Bulgaria, the people, history, and current political issues. We had dinner and breakfast at their restaurant, both of which were delicious. Would highly recommend for anyone driving through the shipka pass - a lovely friendly... More
