Spent a long night here as there was a very noisy nightclub attached to the Hotel and the boo boom music if you could call it that went on until after 5am. Room was clean but bed not comfortable. Breakfast was okay.

It was a good stop on our way to vacation. Even located very close to city center, is a quiet hotel (during the weekdays - in we might be noisy because of a club at the ground floor of the hotel), more like a boutique hotel. Kind of old stylish, but clean with comfortable and large enough apartments (I'm not... More

Went there for a couple nights on business. What four stars? The hotel reminds you of the communist era. There is no restaurant or room service just a very basic breakfast. The room was strange, small with a huge bathroom probably converted from something else and it had one of those night stand stereos you see in Fallout4. It's like... More

Stayed here in 2014 for a stag weekend. Very basic. Only problem is that there is a strip club in the basement which doubles up as a brothel as the strippers take paying punters back to their rooms for other services. Mainly for locals only as the bulgarians are not to keen on the English.

The hotel is in a good location. The service is friendly and professional. This is a budget hotel but not a 4 star hotel! I give 3 stars for the location and the prices, but for the rest just 1 star and zero for the bathroom!

The hotel is boutique, small, but clean and has all the amenities you need. It's in a great location, walking distance to all the main attractions and places to visit, and also offers gym, very good wi-fi and breakfast. Staff are friendly and a great example of a good hotel for not much money. Would highly recommend to anyone

Beautiful hotel and friendly staff, although not a four star by usual European standards. The area is a bit run down and it's about a 10 minute walk to the main shopping street. Very nice breakfast buffet, plenty of choice. The free wifi is very slow and often doesn't work at all.
