Reviewed 2 November 2013

I booked this hotel by telephone the day before we arrived and the receptionist sent me an email to confirm my booking. The next day when we turned up the receptionist had no record of our booking, I had to show her the email I was sent by the hotel. With much shuffling of papers and checking the computer she found us a room. Yes we are in Bulgaria but no one spoke a word of English! The room was clean but the bathroom smelt awful, something like raw sewage. There was no extractor fan or window in the bathroom so we could not get rid of the smell.
We decided to eat in the hotel restaurant as there was nothing really close apart from takeaway food. My partner tried to order several things on the menu but just got a shake of the head. Take them off the menu if you do not have!!
Breakfast was probably the worst I have ever been served. Cheap spam and terrible tasting cheese. Coffee was the worst I have had in Bulgaria.
The rooms did not have any information regarding safety (in case of fire) in English only Bulgarian. They had a booklet telling you about the highlights of the area.
I would not use this hotel again.

Stayed here for a night in March while travelling around Bulgaria. We did not pre book and just turned up. It was 79 lev for a double room including dinner and breakfast (69 lev without dinner). The room was clean and comfortable. Dinner and breakfast consisted of a set menu with a choice of about 5-6 Options. Menu was available in English which was great. Food was not fancy but was very tasty and service was great. Good hotel, friendly staff. Very pleasant stay.

A well appointed hotel slightly fraying at the edges but more than made up by the incredibly helpful receptionist. We only ate breakfast here and although the choice was limited it was very pleasant and we experienced our first Bulgarian eggy fried bread which was excellent.

Room Tip: Reasonably quiet but the rooms at the back where we stayed face away from the main road, quieter pre...

We have stayed at this hotel a few times and always choose it when in the area as it's a very clean modern hotel on the main road through Kardjali directly opposite the bus station. If you want a good nights sleep then it's perfect as very quiet at night, situated on the outskirts of town centre. Entertainment provided is mellow with it's own bar open until very late, posh restaurant which has been extended and new outdoor Jacuzzi but if you want more it's close enough to walk into the centre or take a very short cheap cab ride. The restaurant has professional waiters who make you feel very important but are also very friendly and the prices seem far too cheap to us Brits. The food is traditional Bulgarian and staff are good at recommending dishes. English menus are available though the translation of some dishes will make you laugh!
It has a private car park and the staff are more than happy to assist with directions to attractions/amenities or call you a taxi. The rooms and mini bars are very reasonably priced for such a smart hotel and all have en-suite showers.

We ended up at the Hotel Kardjali after a bad experience at the Hotel Ardestroy, which was recommended by most guidebooks. This new hotel right across from the bus station turned out to be an excellent choice. Our room was large, clean and comfortable, and there is a good restaurant on site. But what distinguishes the Hotel Kardjali is its extremely friendly and helpful staff. They knocked themselves out to make our stay was pleasant, easy and fun, despite our limited knowledge of Bulgarian. Through pidgin English and French and a lot of body language, they helped us organize trips to the Perperikon, the ethnographic museum, and the next leg of our cross-country excursion. I will retain fond memories of good conversation and ice cold rakija on their outdoor terrace on warm summer evenings in Kardjali.
