The owners are nice people who know how to welcome guests. The food was very good, the cook very open to our requests. Ivan play the guitar very nice. We loved the listening vinil records at breakfast :) Must see the church and, if you go in late June, the lavender fields, not far away.

We arrived at the hotel at 10pm having arrived from London and explored the area earlier in the day. Despite us arriving so late we were given a very warm welcome by the couple who ran this hotel. They even agreed to open the restaurant specially for us so that we could have a two course meal as we had... More

The couple who run this hotel are very nice and friendly and go out of their way to please guests. We had a great night at this hotel on a recent trip around Bulgaria. I think we may have been the only guests in the hotel that night as they had to order in some food for us. It being... More

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
