Our "Trio Camino" was on a concert tour in Bulgaria, and we were invited to play a concert at the Imperial Hotel. We stayed there for three nights and enjoyed the hotel very much. The location is in a beautiful setting, with immediate access to the Black Sea shore, plus such amenities as pool, spa, exercise room. Highly recommended.

Its a very old and posh hotel. Looks great on the otside and inside, although some more refreshment might be needed in the near future. Nevertheless, averall it was a great family experience. We stayed in a massive two bedroom maisonette with our two kids, which was very well refurbished and had amazing sea views. Breakfast was great, truly five... More

I am rating this based in Imperial's 5* status. If Imperial was a lower star hotel, I would increase my rating. The Imperial is rated as a 5* and it definitely was two decades ago but time has moved on and the hotel hasn't. In the past 6 months I have visited 14 countries and stayed at various levels of...

It is designed and built in the height of the communist rule (1976) in a style characteristic of the totalitarian communist architecture. Being intended for the notable members of the party, hotel “Imperial” is... More

Spent 4 days end of July. The first impression was not positive as the lobby of the hotel was kind of old and smelled old. The room, however, was nice and clean and smelled ok. The breakfast was nice, but the best part was the beach. Very large and not crowded, no loud music and quiet. Free chezlongs and towels,... More

We enjoyed a lot our stay in Golden Sands, for a few days. The hotel is placed within the Riviera Club, which basically is a closed resort area (read private). It is very safe to go there, as the parking is secured and the access to the beach is only allowed from the hotels (not for the tresspassers). So we... More
