Hotel Mistral
Ranked #2 of 56 Balchik B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 June 2013

The hotel has a great location, 3 min walk from the small beach in Bachik and 20 meters away from the sea. Our room had sea view, and a small terrace. The view is very nice. The room is standard, comfortable beds, nice bathroom, but nothing spectacular. We expected more from a 4* hotel. The hotel restaurant is simply great- the best in the area by far when it comes to fish and seafood.
What we didn't like: in the morning it was a lot of noise (starting around 9:30 am). The housekeeping was using very very noisy aspirators, simply ruined our morning sleep.
The service was very good, especially the hotel manager, Mr.Jim, was very nice and friendly.
This is more a 3 star hotel, a good choice if you go for the weekend or for a few days.

Stayed one night for fiance's birthday with his mum who is disabled. Staff friendly. Room very nice and suitable for a family as it had a comfortable sofa bed in the living room. Balcony overlooked the Black Sea. Had our lunch in the room and the staff brought up some champagne glasses so we could open some bubbly.
Dinner was good, the foie gras excellent. My main course was not good and i didn't eat it. The vegetables were different to what was stated in the menu. 10% discount was offered and accepted. The small birthday cake I ordered was lovely and we took the rest home. All in all, it was a very relaxing overnight stay. Only other negative point - they blatantly ignored the smoking ban and people were smoking in the lobby bar and restaurant.

Room Tip: Sorry no pool but clicked on it by mistake. Ask for room 208 if you want a family room and nice view...

I was here for our golf holidays with our friends and Balchik is the nearest town to the near by golf courses BlackSeaRama, Lighthouse and Thracian Cliffs. If you do not want to stay at the golf course where there is not much to do in the evening than Balchik and Mistral is a good choice though the town is quite small and not that lively. It is a bit more romantic and quiet town and has nothing to do with mass tourism as the Golden Sands. Friendly staff, rooms are okay, so is the breakfast. The hotel location is excellent. Recommended.

Cannot understand some of the reveiws on show here.
This is by far the best value for money hotel ive had the pleasure to stay.
The Staff are polite,freindly and nothing is to much trouble.
im not to much of a breakfast person but what they offer is mainly continental and more than sufficient in my eyes.
Restaurant menu has a variety of options and the setting outside is lovely at the right time of year.
Thier are many other venues within a short walking distance and have yet to find cause for complaint at any.
We frequent what we call the Piano bar who always make us feel so welcome as do most establishments on the front at Balchik.
Did venture over to golden sands and sunny bay on 2 occasions but everything is at least twice if not 3 times the price.
Am going back there again this year (possibly twice).
Just add we normally go in september just as the season is coming to a close.

This hotel is in a great location right on "bunata" (the Balchik boardwalk which is actually made of concrete). However, it felt like it was built at least 30 years ago and neglected since then. It didn't feel particularly clean and it could definitely use a bunch of renovation. Not impressed. Would look for something else next time.

The hotel is located pretty much in the heart of the small Black Sea resort of Balchik. As such, it is close to many good restaurants, and a few bars (the best being the Irish Rover). Balchik is not the liveliest resort around and those requiring more excitement may want to head for Golden Sands, about 30 minutes drive away to the south.

The rooms were adequate but let down by antiquated plumbing, reminiscent of that of the seventies Soviet bloc. The breakfast was fairly basic consisting of coffee, orange juice, cheese, cold meats, French toast and pastries, but you could get something more substantial from one of the many cafes just a short walk away.

Having said that, the hotel staff were very friendly and the hotel bar was a good starting point for the evening's entertainment.

We were on a golf trip like the previous reviewer with Boris at Bulgarian Golf Tours. Thracian Cliffs is an absolutely fantastic course, with sensational views and a true challenge. Black Sea Rama is also excellent and Lighthouse is not bad either.

We have just returned from our second years golf break in balchik and stayed again at the Minstral. This hotel is fantastic!!! The staff are excellent, some of the best I have ever seen. Nothing was to much trouble, the rooms were kept spotless and the reception and bar staff were on another level!! Book a golf tour with Boris at Bulgarian Golf Tours and stay at The Mistral...Balchik is great!!!!

Room Tip: All rooms were great!!
