Rooms are comfortable and clean, bathrooms are large enough to feel comfortable inside. The workers there are not flexible and un-pleasant. The quality of the food is not great at all, and the choice is not so interesting. The strongest point of this hotel is the place and the view: just great!

Great location, good view from the balcony and close to the beach. WIFI available in all the hotel. Rooms are not well equipped. Food wasn't so good. Good value for money. All in all it wasn't a bad stay..

My husband and I stayed at the Shipka Hotel from June 28,2015 until July 2, 2015. First of all, the air conditioner didn't work properly and they tried to convince us that we didn't really need it, while the weather was quite hot! Well, they finally fixed it. The rooms are very plain but ok. When asking for an extra... More

The best thing about this hotel is the food. You can choose all kind of meals, the food is fresh and very diverse. The room was large, the bathroom is ok, except for the smell which can be disturbing. The staff wasn't friendly enough, they never even smiled, and they didn't helped us with any of our request.
