This hotel is in a great location - only about a 10 or 15 minute walk from the center of town. We were able to get a great deal booking online the two times that we stayed here (approximately 40% off each time) so for us the price and the location were right. The furnishings in the room are pretty basic and outdated, but we found that to be the case in all of the hotels that we stayed around the country so it does not seem like something worth complaining about. The staff at the hotel was really helpful and they spoke wonderful English. The two other great things about the hotel is the breakfast and the on-site spa services. The number of options included in the breakfast are a bit overwhelming, but delicious. It is really not to be missed. The spa services are really great and guests can use their pool. Two issues with the spa - 1) the women who work at the front desk are incredibly rude (particularly to women) and they are not willing to provide a comprehensive price list for the services available. If you are going to use the spa (which i recommend) you should first go online to look at all of the services available as well as the pricing because they are not particularly forth coming with this information; 2) the staff will constantly try to up-sell your treatments. My husband counted that during the span of one 50 minute massage he was offered up-sells 5 different times. My massage was literally stopped half-way through the procedure to discuss other add-ons that I could have (incredibly annoying).
Overall, I would highly recommend staying in this hotel. One tip - don't use the car service offered by the hotel for airport transit. Our cab drivers did not have any problem finding the hotel and the cab ride was less than 20 lev - significantly less than the hotel charges for this service.
