Where to start here. I can honestly say its the strangest hotel experience I have ever had. No expense was spared in the building of this hotel, every single detail was thought of which is not a bad thing of course except for when it is total overkill. What I mean by this is that I lost count of the... More

This hotel is stunning as you walk in but that is where it stops. No help with bags to your room, when we reported a problem there was a lack lustre responses I repair our shower. Evening meal turned into a disaster, little or no breakfast, no staff, like warm food when you got any. We returned at 10 o'clock... More

I really wanted to give a try to what it calls itself a 5 star hotel in Bulgaria at the sea, this was the last time. Whilst the VIP suite was really great (and the price was high) we expected the same from the hotel service. I don't have even words to describe how disguising it is, nothing is working... More

The hotel is amazing!!! Really when you come here you feel like King in his castle. The rooms have full extras. The staff is so polite ( I am very satisfied specially from one waitress in the restauran- Teodora). The hotel has everything necessary your holiday to be like one incredible story in your life!!!

Great hotel, large rooms and good location by the forest. It is too far to walk any place. The hotel has a big lobby but if it is low season, it hard to find any open facility or staff. It could be great during the high season. Not enough numver of waiters in the reataurant to serve, again during the... More

Hello! This is our sixth time in this hotel and it will certainly be the last. We booked 4 nights (April 29 -May 3 - we are still here at the moment I am writing this). If you want to come for the hotel, it has good amenities. But pay attention to the food which can only be compared to... More

Where do I start with this hotel..Do not expect any welcoming staff at your arrival, no explanations of hotel facilities were given, you find the room and carry the luggage on your own. Not everyone speaks understandable english. Buffet breakfast is really bad, packed cheap juices, coffee is bad, and the food not so fresh. The spa can be amazing,... More

The hotel's staff is very nice, this is definitely the best service I've seen in Bulgaria. The venue itself at first seems very unusual in terms of design but once you get used to the details, it all adds up to a comfortable and interesting stay. If you're a fan of wines, try the amazing collection at the restaurant. The... More

Mind you, this is not a hotel for everyone's taste. Inside, you feel like you're in an episode of American Horror Story. But if you're the type of person that likes to tap into their dark side, Royal Castle may just be the perfect place to do so. Great service, spacious rooms, good food... and a walking distance from the... More
