“A Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2009

A beautiful boutique hotel in a good location, just at the edge of the old town. The owner/manager is extremely helpful; he spent several years in the USA and speaks excellent English.

The restaurant serves typical Bulgarian tavern food. Unlike many such places, it makes an effort to serve the courses in the order you might expect them, rather than in the entirely random order the cook happened to prepare them. There is a fine choice of wine, too.

This was recommended as the #1 hotel in Plovdiv by Lonely Planet, so we went directly for it when we drove into town. After we found the place (which was a little tricky as it's in the middle of some very small, one-way streets) the owner told us that he had no vacancy, but as we were walking back to the car, he ran after us to say that his nicest room was available if we only stayed one night, and he would give it to us for half price... deal. The hotel itself is small, but our room was quite large and very nicely decorated. (See our pictures.) It had a balcony that overlooked the quaint neighborhood. The hotel is very much within walking distance of all the major tourist attractions in Old Plovdiv as well as local nightlife. There is a nice fruit market just across the street. In morning, the owner made us breakfast in his restaurant downstairs - it was tomatoes, cheese, crackers, salami (all Bulgarian breakfasts are the same - you won't find an American Breakfast in Bulgaria, so get used to it). We drove to Veliko Turnovo that morning and the owner sat down with us to map out the best route. He knew which roads to take and which not to take. This place had a lot of charm and personality. Highly recommended.
