Diter is in a quiet residential side-street near the city centre. It has its own restaurant or there are some others just around the nearest corner. The pedestrianised area is 3 or 4 blocks away.
The first thing you notice is that the hotel has a guard just outside the (side) entrance.
The reception staff spoke English, it varied from good to much better than that.
I was not particularly happy with the room. It was a couple of yards from the restaurant and there was another building hardly any further away in front of the other window. The shower was strange but I managed to get it to work. At least there was a shower-cabin, something which is not a 'given' in Bulgaria.
Breakfast was a buffet but with minimal options. They covered the main bases though.
I don't know how much the group paid for the hotel, we did not use the restaurant.
