Wonderful place, if you get chance while you’re there, ask to speak to Silvia Jordan or Lubo, they’ll tell you a fascinating story about the mystery of seven thousand Euros. Such an interesting story

Fantastic atmosphere, blended with exquisite cuisine. I love it how the ancient heritage of this 19th century place meets the modern demands in a much non-pretentious yet very elegant manner. To wrap it up- you get a perfect meal at a fair price and feast...your eyes and soul at the same time.More

It appears management has changed recently and quality has gone drastically down. The place is not well maintained, cook is different and the place has lost its edge. Hope they get it back together as the place used to be a perl.

The beef is great. There is a great local wine at reasonable price. We were amazed by the garden, and the slow-life experience it gives you over the never-ending day.

It is a place with tasty food and excellent service. But the reason it is an unforgettable place is that the Hadji Nikoli Inn is one of the most important architectural monuments which is still standing and perfectly preserved for everyone to feel the incredible...atmosphere of 19th century Bulgaria.More
