“Don't go there !”
Reviewed 16 June 2009

I' was dissapointed about this hotel!
1.The food was the same every day , and not very good !
2. the elevators was small and working very bad , was very hard to get one in special in the morning ( breakfest time ) .
3. the pool was small, but ok !
4. the refrigerator from our room was bad working, even if they repair it 2 times .;
5. the parking lot was not for all the cars ...
6. the workers was ok, except the old lady from the front desk .
My advice : Don't go there !

Reviewed 4 May 2006

The Shipka is state owned, and you can only pay in Bulgarian Lev for the room. It cost me 57 Lev, ,or about 28 Euro. It was well worth it, as all I needed was a base to tour sofia. The bed was a little on the hard side, but the facilities at the hotel more than compensated for it. There is a fabolous gym in the basement, and all sorts of treatments available. I opted for a full (real) massage at 25 lev. The therapist was professional, and did wonders for my old car accident injuries. I has a meal in their restaurant, which specialises in fish dishes, but not exclusively so. The meal with two courses and wine cost about 15 Euro, and was thoroughly enjoyable.

Its a budget Hotel, but in my mind, was better in many ways to the more expensive hotels nearby that I have stayed in. A taxi from Shipka to Centre City is about 3 Euro, and takes less than 10 minutes.

Give it a try, its not the Hilton, but ideal for most business or tourists.
