“Great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2011

I stayed here with my daughter during a trip through Greece, Bulgaria and Turkey. Dafi hotel was a great value, as matter of fact Plovdiv was a great value and I'm really glad we decided to include it in our tour. We arrived via bus at night and had to take a taxi to the hotel. Thereafter, we were able to walk everywhere--the historic areas, shopping areas and many restaurants. We really enjoyed visiting a small shop down the street--cvento-plovdiv. I also enjoyed the great staff who spoke great English and were able to help us plan a really nice day in Plovdiv.

I have stayed in other hotels in Plovdiv, but this one beats the others hands down for value for money and comfort. We had the studio on the 4th floor for 75 lev per night. The beds were super comfortable, clean room, good shower. Very peaceful. Good view over towards the town centre rooves. Breakfast was a good buffet breakfast. Staff very helpful and polite. In short, I will not stay anywhere else in Plovdiv.

Room Tip: The studio 401 was large, spacious, quiet and comfortable.

Reading through the reviews I am at odds by the comments.

Our room was the largest we have encountered travelling through Europe in the past 6 months. We booked through expedia and paid 42euro a night including a really good breakfast buffet(no flies) and due to us departing early in the morning were given a breakfast pack.

The weather was perfect so didn't have any problem with the air conditioning.

We arrived at lunchtime and had a meal from their cafe which was great value 2 courses and a beer for two of us cost 10lv about 5euro. We went the next day and it was even cheaper 4euro. All classic bavarian choices.

The lady on receiption was very helpful with restaurants and best places to visit.

I stayed here for two nights in August. The hotel's location was good - a short walk from the old town. The room was small but perfectly formed. Bathroom was a wet room. Breakfast was good. One tip is that it is worth arriving at breakfast at 8 as the food is left uncovered. The one real issue with the hotel (and we changed rooms which did not help) is that the air conditioning was extremely poor. I think that other rooms may have had the same problems because we heard several guests taking showers in the middle of the night.

An average place. The breakfast looked good but I left before the breakfast was set, so can't comment further on it.

On first entering the room, the air didn't smell very good. The smell came from the toilet, let's just say it was incompletely flushed. The smell only dissipated a few hours after the remnants were totally flushed away. Maybe air circulation wasn't too good.

The reception wanted to keep my passport, I don't know if that happens to everyone or just for certain passport holders. And I don't appreciate the way it was done either: the passport was requested for sighting ("May I see your passport?"), and once handed over, I was told, "I am keeping your passport". If the hotel as a policy needed to keep the passport, then it should be informed prior to the handing over of the passport and let the guest decide whether to stay or leave?

In any event it was immediately returned to me, when I said I didn't feel comfortable for the hotel to keep the passport. But the passport shouldn't have been retained in the first place. The passport was just placed into a drawer at the reception; who should be responsible if it was lost? Also, nobody should have any right to retain another's passport. If the keeping of passport was due to fear of non-payment, then it is much better to ask for full payment upfront, no?

The Hotel Dafi is on the edge of Plovdiv's old town on a quiet street. It is a new and quite modern facility. Rooms are small but well-appointed. The staff was quite helpful. The breakfast was excellent.

The Dafi is a bargain-decent price. The size of the room & bathroom reflect that, but that's why it's a bargain. Good location, strong internet connection and they try to please. Toni at the front desk was very helpful!
