I understand the differences from country to country but this Hotel would not be rated with 2-3* nowhere in the world. I guess that because they claim to have a Spa (not seen), they think they can add one or two more stars to the rating. Rooms have not being refurbished in the last 20 years (or at least they...

This is an excellent hotel with superb facilities. The downstairs lounge is huge, the rooms are superb with fabulous bathrooms and one could find no fault with it. Staff are friendly and service excellent. It is an ideal business hotel and I highly recommend it.

I have to agree with my reviewer, hotel is almost centrally located from downtown area, just 5-10 min. to the center. Swimmnig pool was large. Across the road is great traditional Bulgarian restaurant. It is good for business trip. Breakfast I imagined more wealthy, but maybe us at that time were few residents.

The hotel is almost centrally located, just 5 minutes away from the very downtown area. The rooms are spacious and the establishment offers a swimming pool, spa centre and a decent bar. I have stayed there many times and never been disappointed. It is good for both business and leisure.

Actually the decoration of the common areas and the rooms of the hotel is so kitschy that makes you lough! Above that - central location, pleasant service....but at the end I felt as if I came out of some grotesque theater

It is a big hotel in the center of the town. The rooms are big and well furnished. However they are smelling. The windows are not able to be opened, and there is not an air condition. Everything is dirty and terribly needs a renovation. The wi-fi is not working. The breakfast is amazingly bad. The lobby bar is not... More
