Reviewed 22 October 2013

We stayed at Hotel Ego in Plovdiv for 2 days on a recent trip to Bulgaria and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a great location, close to the old town and major sights but on a quiet side street without much through traffic. There are a number of restaurants close to the hotel and the main pedestrian mall is just a couple of blocks away. Our room was clean, comfortable and very modern. The free wifi worked brilliantly and the front desk staff spoke greta English and were very friendly and helpful. The only thing we were not very happy with was the included breakfast - the bread was stale, the scrambled eggs inedible and the ham slimy. Apart from the unappetising breakfast however, everything else was great and we would highly recommend Hotel Ego if you are looking for a good hotel to use as a home base form which to explore Plovdiv.

The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Wifi was quick and available throughout the hotel. Breakfast is a small buffet but has cereals, fruit and yoghurt which is great. Coffees made to order too. It is a 10 minute max walk to the old town so it's convenient. I'd recommend it.

This was one of the best hotels we stayed in, small but extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean, friendly and helpful staff and a great breakfast - what more could you want! The location is perfect, just a short walk away from the pedestrianised area, and the restaurant opposite (the XIX Vek - wonderful name!) was excellent. Plovdiv is one of the highlights of Bulgaria and our visit here was just about perfect.

The hotel is about 15 mins walk from the train station and wheeled suitcases will take a bit of a battering from the broken pavements (a common problem in the country but don't let it put you off from going). The bathroom was very clean with a walk in shower and a good supply of toiletries and towels. The air conditioned modern bedroom had a window screen as well as shutters. A corkscrew was provided in the room and there was reasonable wardrobe space with extra blankets. Be careful of the bed frame as it is dark and protrudes outside the mattress and it was easy to knock into them (a few bruises!). The staff on reception were very helpful and English was spoken. There was plenty of choice at the buffet breakfast.
The Bulgarian restaurant opposite the hotel (XIX BEK) is well worth a visit with excellent traditional meals. There is a local fresh food market and some small shops a few minutes walk away, as well as an ATM.

Room Tip: Room 208 is opposite the sauna.

I stayed here for two nights earlier this month. The hotel is about 1 km from the train and main bus station and conveniently located in front of an excellent Bulgarian restaurant. The rooms are modern and clean, and the bed was comfortable. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet. The only strange thing about the hotel is the funky art on the walls and in the rooms.

Nice hotel overall. The facilities are generally very modern, the bathroom in particular looked brand new. It was nice to have some fresh fruit for breakfast, as well as good coffee. Wifi was available all over the hotel albeit slightly intermittent in our room. Only issue was that the air con didn't relly work in our room. Being August it got pretty hot in the night. Still, definitely recommended.

Spent 2 nights with my husband.
We wanted a middle range hotel where we would easily park the car while not being lost in Plovdiv.

Ego hotel met our expectations.
Easy to find. room ok. Parking ok even if it's not a private parking with control.
15 mn walk max to the center.
The restaurant in front of the hotel is good and cheap.
The breakfast of the hotel is very simple : i would not advise to pay for it.

To conclude : good value for money, no néed to pay more
