Friendly little hotel, clean but rooms were basic but that's all you need as you only sleep in them. Only a short walk to all the shops, restaurants and beach. Plus supermarket less than five minutes away and Crown for exchanging money. Would definitely book again.

Fourth visit to this hotel as we have always loved it here. Still good but we were a little disappointed this year, we had booked two rooms and requested at least one pool view, for better internet connection for my teenage daughter but both were at back of hotel. Rooms were ok although the wallpaper was a bit psychedelic! Though... More

The Smolian or Smolyn in Balkan brochure, provides what you want - a bed for the week, a decent sized pool, a fairly good snack menu and friendly staff. The rooms are basic granted, but they are serviced each day, with towels replaced 5 out of 7 days. Our room - 501 - had a smallish balcony and a good... More

Avoid! There are much better places to stay in Sunny beach for less. I had big expectations based on the positives reviews here but this hotel is not any better than the neighbouring hotels Tia Maria and Bohemi. I wouldn't recommend it even for short stay.
