“Eclectic design and excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2011

Although I had to cancel my first night there, I was lucky enough to stay at least one day. Reception and staff are more than eager to help for any request. I was upgraded to a double room (instead of a single) as weekends there is availability.
I was amazed with the ergonomic spacious room and view from the balcony. Best value for money in town. I will definitely stay there in my next visit!

Ah, the mOdus- yet another amazing stay. My parents came to Bulgaria to visit, and Varna was a stop on our roadtrip. This was my third time in Varna, and staying at a non-mOdus hotel never even crossed my mind. I had stayed here once before, and then at the Musala Palace London once for work- which is "nice" but frumpy. If you're over 65 and fussy- stay there. If you're young-ish and care about design, the mOdus is your place. The location is fantastic- right across from the Sea Garden and just a block away from the main pedestrian street (get tapas at Bodega, you won't be sorry!). The service is impeccable, the rooms are spacious and well-appointed, the beds are comfortable, the bath products are nice, the breakfast is delicious and the price is not too expensive. This hotel would cost you 3x as much in the US, that's how nice it is. I didn't know this beforehand, but they do have about 3 parking spots for the hotel- we found a spot on the street and didn't find out about the hotel parking until we checked in. There's also free WiFi, which is fast. My only complaint is that there isn't a mOdus in every major city in Bulgaria.

We stayed for one night at this hotel. we picked it because it was the #1 rated hotel in Varna and it did not disappoint.

Pros
(i) excellent location - steps from the main plaza where all the bars and restaurants are and very close to the beach
(ii) all the fixtures and ameneties are very modern
(iii) amazing breakfast - unusual for Bulgaria - cooked breakfast, gourmet coffee, loads of fruits and vegetables
(iv) good service - hotel caters to business travelers so weekend rates are cheaper. Hotel offers 3 nights for the price of 2.

Cons
(i) Price - it is decently priced relative to European/American standards but we found a comparable hotel for 1/3 of the cost 1/2 a block away.
(ii) Gym - rather small with one treadmill and one cycling machine.

Loved hotel modus, that was our 4th time there.

1. They did not save on anything in the interior, very good design hotel where function and beauty go hand-in-hand
2. Service - excellent, on our stay I even got sick and they bought medicine for me from the drugstore, as I was feeling pretty sore
3. Food -- boutique food, excellent quality buffet breakfast, sensible prices
4. 3 types of pillows, free bike, friendly staff, very quiet despite the main street location,
5. The staff even sent us back a t-shirt we forgot via courier

We stayed two nights on our trip around Bulgaria and did not want to leave. Everything was perfect, the breakfast was excellent and the staff was extremely attentive. I absolutely recommend this hotel!

It is an excellent property with clean bright rooms, good internet connection, and excellent restaurant. The staff are very very nice, helpful, and pleasant. But the bed covers are just too small for two people as they are the wrong size. If they can fix this tiny detail, they return to a 5.

While traveling through some more remote areas in Eastern Europe, this was truly a great change. A very modern, chic hotel in a great location. Service and breakfast is excellent. The gym was a bit disappointing, though.
