This hotel is a former communist building reconditioned into a hotel but still keeps that oldish simplistic style. The hotel itself needs a bit of refurbishment and a nicer decor, as everything screams 1980s: the floors, the colors, the decorations and even the smell. The rooms are very big, even a bit too big (probably they've been enlarged by taking... More

You may think it's a cute property when you see the front side of this city hotel, but believe me you will be amazed by the panoramic views at the rear! Yantra is a quite yet cozy property with all necessary facilities for a traveller! Clean rooms, Vienna style café, a good breakfast and polite people! Spa and other recreational... More

The service was rather fast in the Bar area and restaurant. Service crews were on top of our needs. The restaurant also has outdoor tables when weather is warm. Not much room for parking but the employees were outside directing places to park. Never had a problem. Parking is alway a problem in town. Entry to hotel opens to a... More

Hotel has an old world charm, to egin with, it has small elevators! This is the best hotel in town and is very, very central in this lovely quaint place. The hotel is just beside a valley and is breathtaking. Do try to get a room this side of the hotel. The rooms faciing the main road has a pretty... More

Our room was a small two-room suite and was quite pleasant if a little dark. It was comfortable and everything worked well. Only problem, it faced the street and I have attached a photo of our view. The view from the other side of the hotel was breath-taking - and they have a glass-fronted outside elevator on that side of... More

A decent hotel with incredible view to the city and the historical sites. There is a SPA center only because it is good for a hotel to have SPA center... The jacuzzi is not hot enough, which is a problem when the outside temperature is close to zero. I will definitely not going to return here.

The is very good, with good sized rooms. If there are available try to get a room facing the valley, rather then the town, because the views are amazing and the rooms are quieter (comparing with the ones facing the street). Unfortunately, the breakfast is not on par with the hotel overall, but is ok. I will return to this... More

Beds hard - rooms large with wonderful views if facing away from street - friendly service at reception - breakfast uninspired with eggs that must have been sitting for hours when we arrived at 8:15- this seems to be a tour bus hotel as all breakfast tables were for numerous people. Overall a fairly good hotel but certainly not four... More

As part of our river cruise tour of the area, and before heading up to the Tsarevets Fortress, we enjoyed a very nice lunch at this hotel. It was a light Bulgarian lunch and had a guest at each table who was a college student and who talked to us about growing up and living in Bulgaria. We had a... More
