Sankt Peterburg Park Hotel
Ranked #18 of 36 Hotels in Plovdiv
Reviewed March 9, 2013

I had to spend 2 nights in this well known Plovdiv hotel. First I was pleasantly surprised because I received a large room with a similarly large bathroom. Unfortunately the heating system was down in the room so I tried to spend as less time in the room as possible. It was even more necessary because the free wifi did not work at the writing desk of the room, probably because it was too far from the corridor.
The other unpleasant surprise was the quality of the breakfast. The first morning I hoped that I was too late but the same happened the next day.Fruits are very old, perhaps they were for decoration. Powdered tea or coffee only from a machine. I had to order and wait 10 minutes for a regular teabag.
The checkout was even more disappointing.There was only one person on duty and I had to stand in the queue 28 minutes before the receptionist could start my checkout. For some reasons the hotel cannot make one bill for all services but print a separate bill for accomodation, for minibar and for restaurant.

If possible I will choose another place the next time I travel to Plovdiv

Room Tip: Check before if heating / climate works. The rooms with S means they are larger

This hotel was built in the 60's /70's and they hav'nt touched it since, the roughest premier inn the the uk would put this to shame.

there is a pool out back, it was empty because it was winter but looked like a construction site

the service is good though and they have free wifi.

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).
