We have just got back from staying for two nights at this hotel, with our Labrador in tow. The hotel staff could not have been kinder to us or our dog, she got pats and strokes every time we came into reception!
Our room was lovely, looking out over Tsaravets. Good air conditioning and clean towels every day. A mini bar was there as well. We asked one of the members of staff about the sound and light show, and one of the chaps phoned his friend to see if it was on that evening, he said he thought about 9 pm, we had dinner out(see another review) and a shame, but we only saw the end of it, it must have started earlier.
Breakfasts were OK everything was there, but the hot food was a little cold for English tastes.
Driving through Europe we were charged exorbitant amounts for our dog, but here was free!!! And free car parking just outside the hotel, great!!

Room Tip: Get room 114 if you can, it looks out over Tsaravets, and if you are lucky you will see the sound an...

This hotel has limited parking right outside but when we arrived a man helped us get into one of the spaces. Refreshing health suite. Rooms come with nice robes. Nice pool. Spacious large rooms; slightly dated with excellent air con. The rooms smell like people have smoked in them in the past but not any more . The view is Amazing and location is on the outskirts of the center of the old city.

I went there for 3 or 4 times both during winter and spring. The services were great; they have very clean rooms (the towels are changed every day), helpfull staff, prompt room-service and, also, a wonderfull view to the hills of Tzarevets (that you have to ask for while booking). The have smoking and non-smoking rooms and apartments. The SPA was the best I've ever tryed in my life. Also, the food was very good (you have to try the traditional food and bear)! Veliko Tarnovo is a very nice place to visit (also being an Unesco monument)!

The major positive of this hotel is its fantastic location. Minutes away by foot from the old town, the citadel, the shopping area, etc. Also from its dining halls one has a ringside view of the Son et Lumiere show. Dinner and breakfast were both adequate despite the very large number of guests. Service could have been better perhaps. Had to keep waiting for buffet items to be replenished.
Rooms are small and basic and the beds small and a bit tired - could do with some renewal. Definitely not a luxury hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the Citadel - lovely view and also no noise! Non smokers must specifically...

Yantra is nice place to stay in Veliko Tarnovo. It does't matter when - during the winter or during the summer....it's always good. The view from the hotel's rooms is incredible! You can see the imposing castle Tsarevets which is absolutely awesome during the night. The air conditions work properly so it's not cold during the winter and not hot during the summer! :) The food and service are ok, the SPA center too. The location is strategic - close to the historical part of the city, as well as the city center. There are a lot of restaurants near by.

Room Tip: There is no big parking in front of the hotel, but the piccolo was moving the car all the time in so...

Good enough location. Right in front is a convenience store (Non-stop). In the middle of the street is a sign that says "Comfort hotel". As you ascend the stairs you will find an entire alley of shops selling local crafts of tin, ceramic, wood, leather. The room is more space than substance. Generic really. Tiny beds, small TV, limited amenities. The worst thing is the airconditioner is at best warm, no thermostat, control only for fan strength. If you open the windows, too many insects attracted to light. Then all of these negatives are erased when you realize that this hotel has the best view of The Citadel. As you are having dinner at the cellar, a light and sound show of the castle will leave you speechless (this can be viewed on Youtube). Going to the castle itself is just a 15 minute walk. So forget everything else. The view alone is worth the price of admission.
