Highly recommend this hotel. Rooms are very nice and clean and the staff is excellent. Excellent views of the old part of town and close to all interesting places to visit. Staying here for second time in two years. The food in the restaurant is terrific.

We visit Veliko every year and have looked around and stayed at a number of hotels and guest houses in the town. However, we always come back to the Hotel Gurko which is our favourite - it has unparalleled views across the valley and is oozing quaint Bulgarian style character from every wooden beam, stone wall and balcony! The staff are super-friendly and helpful and it's a reliable choice for a drink and dinner with a view if you want fresh, authentic Bulgarian dishes. Breakfast just keeps on coming...fruit, meat, egg, cheeses, yoghurt, bread, cake, banitsa, juice, tea and coffee don't just hit the spot - they nail it! The rooms are basic but we have always found them to be immaculately clean, spacious and well-presented. We will stay here again in a heartbeat! Tip: if driving here by car, just suss out parking with reception beforehand. The hotel does offer parking but it can be a tight squeeze!

Just spent two great days in Veliko Tărnovo at Hotel Gurko. Really handy for shops, bars and restaurants. Hotel itself was great, check in really quick, parking available if required. We had room 20 on the 3rd floor, lift available if you don’t fancy the stairs.

The room itself was very clean, the doorway to balcony has a screen fitted so you can leave the door open. The shower over the bath does not have a screen so the floor can get a little wet no real issue though. The air conditioning at times was a little noisy but we liked the door open so didn’t use it much.

We ate breakfast twice and had a meal one evening in the restaurant. No complaints about service or the food absolutely great and staff very friendly.

Overall happy with the hotel and will definitely use it again.

Absolutely loved this hotel. All the rooms are different. The size of the room and bath were very large. The view was amazing. The dinner was fabulous and breakfast was a full meal served to you which included an Bulgarian pastry
