Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

The best hotel in the region. The owners are just perfect and you feel there like you are in home. Prices vs Accomodtation are more than perfect. Hotel is near by Etara museum - you can go by walking in 20 minutes. In the hotel there is WiFi and restorant in traditional athmospfeare.

Stayed March 2014, traveled on business

We were here for one night, but the owners of this small and beautiful hotel made us feel like at home. The rooms are nice, clean and spacious. The restaurant is made with stone but it's warm. And the food was fresh and delicious. I recommend this hotel to everyone who is coming in Gabrovo. It's not noisy and in the mountain you have nothing else but fresh air.

This family owned and run hotel is actually located outside Gabrovo, in a tiny neighborhood along the road between Gabrovo and Etar, but the owners have taken care to post clear signs leading to it. Tihomir, the owner and host, knows customer service! He took excellent care of us. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Wi-fi was available and free of charge. We had dinner in the lovely courtyard, all home prepared by his wife. The menu, both dinner and breakfast, stuck to traditional Bulgarian cuisine, no nonsense, and was skillfully prepared. Forget Gabrovo-proper hotels, stay at Tihomir's!

I've been there so many times for the past three years and I keep going there every time I'm in Gabrovo. The hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood, right next to the river. Every morning you get to see the beautiful hills of Stara Planina from the cute balcony that most rooms have. Absolutely peaceful place! The rooms are always perfectly cleaned (actually I haven't seen hotel rooms cleaned that good anyplace else). The beds are very comfortable too.
The hosts... Wow! There are not enough word to say how extremely hospitable they are. Every time I feel like a long time waited guest of their own. I will tell you a couple of stories: Once, last January, there was a really bad snowstorm. We got stuck in the snow on our way to the hotel, we were pretty close but still not that close. As Tisho (our host) found out about this, called a couple of his friends, and they came with shovels to dig us out. Another time (this past December) we ended up without a car for a couple of days - he drove us to our client each morning and picked us up every evening. He refused taking any money about this even-dough out insist. He and his wife (as long as their little son Koko) are amazing!!!
The food there is really good, too: freshly prepared by scratch, delicious homemade meal right infront of the fireplace... This place really feels like home!

This small but charming hotel is clean and modern. Nusha & Tihomir, your hosts, go out of their way to make your stay memorable. Don't hesitate to ask questions. I needed to get to a local bank to change money. Tihomir obliged me by driving to the bank on his way to the market. I accomplished my mission and got to see a little local color as a bonus.
Nusha speaks very good English and Tihomir is fluent in German. The hotel's tarriff includes breakfast. If you desire a specific item for breakfast, just ask Nusha if it is available and she will cheerfully provide it. All the meals are very inexpensive and tasty. I spent the entire month at Hitar Petar and thoroughly enjoyed consumming Nusha's culinary recommendations. Every dish was excellent.
The hotel a few kilometers out of the city toward Etara. If you are opposed to using local transportation (taxi & bus), this is probably not your best choice. I have stayed at other hotels in Gabrovo and I can honestly say that this hotel is more modern and cleaner than the others... by a large margin. Other patrons have expressed the same sentiments.
