5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Stayed one night with my wife before flying home to Dublin the next day, I recieved a free upgrade to a beautiful apartment, I have stayed in many hotels in many countries throughout the world and i can honestly say the friendlyness and reception we recieved was second to none. The hotel is small but the staff and attention to detail make up for it , cant wait to stay again.

The Hotel is decent but would not call it a five star one. The rooms are spacious and view is great but there is nothing special and remembering for that hotel. Good thing is that it is quite close to the sea park

Dear Georgi,

I gratefully welcome all points of view, shared here on TripAdvisor. I believe that this makes the site so important in terms of getting a honest and unbiased impression about any given property.
Perhaps we are not what you expected and that's perfectly OK, as we have never claimed 5 stars category or whatever doubtful standards they may promise according to the local requirements. I understand that there is no universal formula for everyone but I'm sure that we have found the right blend and this is by far concurred by hundreds of reviewing visitors. I only hope that the majority of our guests will continue choosing our hotel because they are able to recognize and would appreciate the attention to detail which we have implemented in place. So far we are being blessed with guests who have enjoyed our services and facilities and are happy to keep coming back time and time again. I do hope that you will be one of those guests and you will find that our hotel is very much worth staying at.

Regards,

Deyan Kolev

Previous reviewers have identified a number of positive aspects to this property. It's also worth noting that the naval museum is nearby - in the same park that the hotel overlooks - and the Black Sea is very close by - should you wish to take a dip.

Stayed here on business for 3 nights. Location was lovely, beach and many restaurants in walking distance. Rooms are on the small side but well designed. Air conditioning was great, wi fi worked brilliantly with no password needed. Good shower room and tv at the foot if the bed. Breakfast was lovely and service was very good. The only bad point is that sometimes traffic noise was quite loud but it did not disturb my sleep.

Dear Nic,

Your review is so much appreciated and I'd like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to post it here on TA! It is indeed very rewarding for all of us ho hear such good words from an experienced travellers, pointing not only to the positive side of their experience, but also to the areas where we need to improve. It the case with the sounds, coming from the street, there is a little that we can do but we have noted the issue and we did everything posiible to further improve our soundproofing at earliest convenience and to eliminate the impact of the urban noise which every major city on the coast has during the high season. I guess it's even in the nature of the things and as long as we do our part, we may assure our guests that their comfort is our utmost care and this will no longer be an issue!

Thank you again and please consider visiting us again!

Yours respectfully,

Deyan Kolev

It was my first trip to Varna, and I been told to expect faded grandeur, some great examples of Art Nouveau and Deco architecture mixed with some varying successful examples of 70's Communist buildings. What I hadn't expected was how green the city is, how many parks and how close the centre is to the sea. If more money was used more effectively this city could be a wonderful addition like Split in Croatia....so it was a great surprise to see a well run, well designed hotel with friendly staff and great service. Room was superb with great facilities and breakfast very good. Highly recommended.

Purposely holding themselves down to 2 stars Modus proves less is more. Sleek modern minimalistic masculine design feels perfect for smaller spaces... classy places! By eliminating some of the unnecessary kitschy usual standards (thus dropping a couple of dimly lit stars)this refined Hotel is all a traveler needs.. great service perfect breakfast next to the park and 5 minutes to the beach! Costs a bit more but u will agree. Enjoy!

First class from the moment of walking through the door. I never stay in big hotels if I can avoid it, and this is exactly the reason this policy often pays off. Assistance to the room, which was much larger than I expected. High quality fittings and L'Occitane toiletries. I dined in on the first night - the Bistro is top-notch - there was simply no need to leave the hotel after my slightly tiring flights and late arrival.

Nothing too much trouble: I wanted to adjust the heating in my room and had trouble with the temperature resetting. Reception had it sorted whilst I was out. They also happily printed my boarding passes which I e-mailed from my room the night before my checkout - it's the little things that you remember but which make all the difference.

Bed very comfortable, room had double aspect (and a small balcony at the back - but not view to speak of). The double-glazing eliminated the traffic noise at the front. Complementary bottle of water every day - again, a nice touch.

Although I didn't, if you ring ahead by 45 minutes, they'll turn the sauna on for you. There's a small fitness room in the basement which I'd probably use during a longer winter stay, though the Sea Gardens are right opposite, and running there and on the beach would probably be preferable.

Breakfast was good. A sense of personal service that you don't get everywhere.

I hope to be back, probably this year!

Room Tip: Request an "apartment". There's one on each floor. 3 was mine, and was very good.
