“Great stay in the best guesthouse in Old Plovdiv”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

When we got there we received a warm welcome from the staff. We had a quadruple room witch was big, comfortable and clean. The house itself is amazing, typical, big with a great situation in the old town. The owner was really nice and helped us planning the rest of our trip. We warmly recommend this guest house, best place to stay in Plovdiv.

Wonderful building full of character, beautifully maintained and a brilliant location . Busy but calm atmosphere .But what was most special was the care and attention from Hristov and all his staff. Practical help, advice and interesting information and a friendly and professional approach throughout our week stay in Plovdiv .Our first trip to Bulgaria and we want to return

It is the best hostel I have ever stayed in! The building has its own unique and thrilling history, it is like a vivid and extremely interesting museum. The owner and the staff are very attentive, helpful and nice. Rooms, bathrooms, the kitchen, the hall - everything is comfortable and clean. The hostel has a perfect location in the centre of the Old Town. We had been staying there with a group of friedns for one week and we are dreaming now to come back again to Hostel Old Plovdiv someday.

The warmest welcome, the most characterful building and rooms, spotlessly clean and a dreamy courtyard garden. We stayed only one night, this was our first visit and we were sorry we could not stay longer, but we will be back. Right in the middle of the Old Town, with restaurants just a short walk away the location is perfect. The owner Hristo is a man of great energy and vision and he and his wife have created a real jewel of a place to stay. Conveniences like free parking, wifi and breakfast make it a great deal, but it is the faultless customer service which really makes this place stand out.

Room Tip: For a view of the courtyard garden take a room at the back of the building

This was the best hotel I stayed in , in Bulgaria. Perfectly situated.The staff and owner were charming and helped wherever they could but at the same time without intruding on my stay. Great bedrooms, bathrooms and a pleasant garden to sit outside in. The hotel was decorated very tastefully reflecting the old house that the hotel was, prior to its conversion. New bed linen, new bathrooms and a good breakfast put the hostel in a league way above equivalently priced hotels.

This fantastic hotel/hostel occupies a superbly renovated old town mansion oozing with character right in the heart of Plovdiv's historic quarter. Spacious, wood-panelled rooms and creaking wooden floors add to the charm. There's also a lovely garden. Faultless service, highly recommended!

Staying in B&B Old Plovdiv is more than a regular hotel stay, consider it an 'experience'. It is very unique today to get the opportunity to stay in a historical house and this at an affordable price. Be sure to ask about the history of the house in case you missed the welcome by Hristo. All this certainly weighs up against the fact that you are sharing a bathroom.
Breakfast is simple but ok. Maybe a suggestion could be to give it a Bulgarian touch with some of the famous dairy products and pastries.
Parking at hotel is safe, we just left the car there since Plovdiv is a walkable city.
Overall very good.
