Sankt Peterburg Park Hotel
Ranked #18 of 35 Hotels in Plovdiv
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Tentatively acceptable as a 3* - 4* modern hotel. It suffers, however, occasional flashbacks into its bad old days, as if unaffected by all recent investments and maintenance.

Stayed there second time and still got some surprises.

Rooms - spacious and comfortable.
Bathrooms - recently renovated at least in some rooms: baths changed to shower cabins with curtains (a welcome addition since last year).
Wi-Fi coverage - irregular: good enough in some rooms while catatonic in others.
Power sockets - the same problem as last year: far too few of them in rooms. As of now, guests should consider bringing their own extention cords and splitters if they expect any degree of comfort with multiple electronic devices. Hotel management should consider more investments in this area.
Breakfast - just as doleful and cheerless as last year. In many other countries it could well pass as normal, but in Bulgaria it's a disappointment.

The surprise element this year was windows.

Apparently, not many guests tend to look behind their rooms' curtains and notice the obsolete wooden frames installed somewhere in the golden era of Todor Zhivkov. Now the frames are essentially inoperable, in many cases they can't be opened or closed and provide no real insulation anyway.
This isn't always a problem - last year it went unnoticed with me.
In some cases, however, it gets bad: you want them opened and you can't, and - worse yet - sometimes you want them CLOSED (against noise, rain or wind) and you can't. The things are often beyond any repair and maintenance, so that the hotel can only switch you to an another room.
To be rated 4*, even in Bulgaria, and to sport these windows - is quite a shame.

Room Tip: Rooms on the boulevard side - opposite to the aqua-park side - usually are a little more noisy due t...

For room; i stayed 21st. floor two nights. There was very bad smell and i couldn't understood the reason on the floor. Bath and furniture were not so good. Wi-Fi was good and working.
For breakfast, there were only a few choicable universal low quality foods. It's name was just "breakfast".
For location, i was there for exhibition. So, you can go fair area by walking only 15 minutes. Hotel is a bit far away to city center, but taxi too cheap. :)
I've gone there by my car from Istanbul. They've open parking area 24 h secured. It was good.
Personal was very friendly.

And finally,i can not say "Ok" for benefit / payment ratio.
Price was 4 stars, benefits was 2 stars!...

A 21 floors old fashioned hotel close to the fairground. The studios and the appartments are large and quite clean but the rooms are very small and poor. You can not open the windows at all. Lobby and restaurants are ok. There are nice and large outdoor pools but unfortunately they were closed because of an event. Breakfast was awful.

Room Tip: Choose only studios or apartments( not a room)

I picked it for the short distance to the exhibition grounds: clean and fine decoration together with smiling staff can make your stay very pleasant. I was given possibility to choose a suite instead of single room and I was surprised by courtesies and facilities. Staff is friendly and the hotel is worth a stay: price-quality ratio is superb (I paid eur50per night).

I stayed her as part of a large group, in Plovdiv for a sports event. I had an "apartment" : large sitting room, large bedroom, with enormous bed, nice bathroom, with bath. Altogether, spacious and comfortable. The pools were excellent. The food ok.

Having stayed at this very average hotel a while ago I decided to book again as the waterpark is superb

Imagine my horror to find the pool closed for renovation !

Had I been advised that the pool was going to be closed I would have either booked elsewhere or not had the displeasure of finding no pool !

Located a little bit distant from the downtown, although even a minimal familiarity with the city should remove that obstacle (it's really not far even on foot). Conveniently located for travelling to and from the fairground. Several 24h stores very close. Adequate wi-fi in rooms.
Inconvenient bathrooms (no shower curtains etc. as the other reviewers noticed). Some quirks in rooms as well (too few electic plugs for a decent hotel room in the 21st century is one example).
Food in the hotel's restaurant is tentatively adequate, but choices are too few for a decent restaurant in Europe (let alone for a restaurant in Bulgaria as a nation that earns highest scores for excellent food and drinks).
The restaurant adds an another inconvenience: loud parties until late night on those days when the restaurant and its luxurious pool area are leased for concerts, weddings and other such events. It makes quite a noise in rooms, especially those on the same side with the pool area, and such events are very frequent at least in the high season.
