“One of the best hotels I have stayed in”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

I am a seasoned traveller and I have not stayed in a hotel with such kind and helpful staff as Oceanic. The room was immaculate and the fixtures are of top quality. I actually stayed in the penthouse apartment and if you have the chance I highly recommend you spend a little extra for A LOT extra. It's pretty incredible!

I have stayed in pretty much all of the top hotels in Varna and my experience with Oceanic was by far the best.

Cons: No parking (but taxi's are dirty cheap in Varna), the breakfast/food is not worth eating.
Pros: The front desk service, the room quality, the location, the value for money.

Room Tip: Book the penthouse apartment if you can

Hotel is in city centre with no direct access by car. Parking cost depends on Yours negotiations skills. We paid 8e/ night. Way too expensive but this rate we dealed with parking attendant was 2e lower than receptionist try to charge us. At first we got the room overlooking the main square but with sticker for disabled persons on the door. Wierd. Rooms are good size, with cardkey, clean with big screen lcd with 100 channels and electronic safebox. Beds are firm. Sheets immaculate. Rooms are not warm but have individually controled central aircon system. Bathroom are nice, little leaking from the shower cabin. All the amenities are present. Hotel has a casino or it is reverse, anyway, who like may take a chance.Breakfast was poor for the price we paid for the room. Shabby basement restaurant.

It is a small, but cosy hotel in the heart of Varna. The location is one of the best, the staff is polite, the rooms are spacious and furnished great. The bad thing here I think is the breakfast and the breakfast room - poor breakfast in small room, no enough tables for all guests. Two times there, maybe my third will be soon...

Honesty, i was really positively surpiced. This hotel has nothing to compare many other Bulgarian hotels with former Sovjet style and smell. Casino and hotel has been made in a great sense of style with modern extras and materials, Location is the best you can deam on and service also as good as i never treasured before in Bulgaria. The girls working on the front desk are soooooo kind and smiling,..10 points!

Breakfast,..please,..some other kind of coffee than expresso:)
