The view is great! This year in December it was no snow, but the grass was still green and the fir trees were also green and majestic. The food was very tasty and the service was good. We were able to stay outside for lunch because of the very worm weather. I love the Kaloyanova Fortress!

Having seen this hotel on an earlier trip we decided to book it through an online booking facility. The price was cheap so we decided to take a chance for a number of nights. The hotel is a nice distance even from Arbanassi so a car is advisable, though taxi's are cheap. The hotel looks very impressive from the outside.... More

If you want a good night's sleep don't stay here. Spent three nights here. The mega sound system reverberates through the whole building well into the morning. There is no escaping it, there is no chance of sleep. On the plus side, the staff are polite.

Excellent location, you must have a car. Excellent value for money, good food, barbecue, the place where you can see and enjoy the sunrise and the sunset. Good place for a base - close to Veliko Tarnovo city and district. On the top of the hill so nice panorama! Close to some other attractions - monasteries and natures. Good location... More

This was our 4th stay in the area but our first experience in this hotel. On previous visits, we had seen this hotel but expected it to be far more expensive than it is. The castle theme of the exterior is carried on throughout the hotel and there's a huge ballroom which I suspect is a brilliant wedding or party... More

This is an original hotel for this part of the country. The faux medieval theme is present everywhere in the building. A great diningroom-ballroom is the pinacle of the experience. They organise themed weekends so inquire if you don't fancy price charming and princesse garb.The rooms are a bit spartan but clean (theme induced?). Very close to Veliko Tarnovo.

The hotel is great, you feel like you're in a museum, the design is extraordinary, the breakfast was delicious. The prices are comparable to a normal hotel in Veliko Tarnovo, but this hotel is something different. It worth every penny (or stotinka)...the only negative thing is the fact that the hotel is situated outside the town, but in the front... More

“I do not know which rooms are best but do not stay in the room with the rubbish yard view and the inadequate noisy Air Con. If you are into privacy do not select the room with the shower in the corner of the bedroom. I guess best tip is to visit the room before booking in; look out the window; turn on the A/C and the shower is a matter of choice.”
