We have stayed in many hotels and inns all over Bulgaria. This one is special. The owners are wonderful hosts who are a role model for all other establishments. The hospitality is faultless. The breakfasts are amazing. The hotel is in good order and they are wanting to upgrade it even more. Somebody should invest in this place! And did... More

The hotel is really lovely and cosy. Our room was nice ( no airco but the fan was enough for me), bathroom has a nice shower and we had the view over the bulgarian fields, it was so relaxing!

The hotel is located near the Shipka Monument, Thracian tombs, the golden domed cathedral, and the museums in Kazanlak. It is a quiet, family owned hotel with a great restaurant. The rooms are comfortable and with a breeze coming from the valley no need for air conditioning. If you need anything, just ask the hosts, truly dedicated to their customers!

The hosts at this hotel are it's greatest asset - so very helpful and welcoming. The property, whilst not the Hilton, is perfectly clean, well situated for wonderful views, has great wifi and lovely food. One downside is, that at the time of writing, there was no address listed on TripAdvisor. However, this place is a lot better run and... More

The hotel is really lovely. The rooms are simple but adequate. Note they don't have air-conditions, only ceiling fan. There's a small pool which was really nice. Breakfast was good, while dinner was disappointing. The owners are really nice and speak good English. Do not order "single in a double room". Normally you expect to get a regular double room...

On our short time here, Ivan and Tosha, the hosts of this hotel, helped us with everything, including useful information about the sightseeings. More than that, they were very friendly and made us feel at home. If you ever want to visit Buzludja or Kazanlak, I really recommend Shipka IT hotel. Best price for a 3-night stay, really tasty breakfast,... More

This family hotel is great value for money. The rooms are nice and clean. Excellent customer service. The chef used to take the order in advance, so she can make sure everything is freshly cooked and prepared on time. In the morning she made home made banitsa (traditional bulgarian food) which was a great surprise. It felt like home. Would... More
