I got two balconies in twin room. Price-quality is exellent. Aircondition didn't work well, no chilling. Clean and nice room. General places were nice but restaurant was closed, only breakfast. Breakfast was simple but ok.

Nice hotel, located near the town center. 5 minutes away of the main street of town. We stayed one night in a double room for 60 BGN which is not a high price (at least in Burgas). The hotel is clean and cozy. I would stay there again in the future.

We stayed at California for two nights in September 2014. The hotel is on a quiet side street only a couple of blocks away from the main pedestrian area. The rooms are silent and ok, but a little old already. The bathroom and shower felt more modern. There is a lift, free breakfast and free wifi. The rooms would need...

I stayed one night at California Hotel-Restaurant on my grand motorbike tour in South-East Europe. The hotel has a small underground garage, in which I could park my motorbike free of charge.

We stayed at the California Hotel for three nights. It was a nice clean hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We stayed one night at California in order to catch an early flight the next morning. We arrived quite late, very hungry, and expected to have to go out. The empty restaurant was open, and served the best meal we had in Bulgaria during our one week there. The room was nice and large with a balcony and another balcony...
