“More than what you expect to find in Stara Zagora”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

I stayed in this hotel for one night, in September 2013. The staff in the reception was quite friendly but I was really cautious of what I would find upstairs.
The room was quite OK. Quite spacious, very clean, there was nothing that I could be complained of...
Free wi-fi, and at good connection, was also a plus.

Just the breakfast, could be a little better.

Overall, I would stay again at Merian Palace

Reviewed 18 January 2013

Hotel in the centre of Stara Zagora city. Good location to see city and if needed to operate from the hotel to nearest locations like AES company.
Hotel is good but I'm not sure about right star rating :
- swimming pool nice and big
- gym exist but some equipment is broken and room is very cold. Also used as a temporary store (for not used chairs)
- parking, working but not finished
- black suited guys in the lobby looks like a mafia (maybe its security) but every your step is recorded and commented
- light in a room is blinking - seems that installation is very poor
- minibar is cheap but BEWARE of out of date things

Room Tip: Check twice window view. If you are not lucky you will see backyard

I am really could not see what the other reviews raved about here. Granted the hotel is spacious but that really was about it. The room was clean enough but everything was very tired and turning shabby. Admittedly the bathroom was fine. The service was appalling, no bar staff, towels not changed and soaps in the room not renewed daily. Simple things. The worst of all was the breakfast. Non existent and on one day had to search for someone to get some at eight in the morning. There are some better hotels in stara zagora which give a better overall experience.

It was just fabulous!
We were in Stara Zagora for New Year's Party and made a reservation at this hotel, on the internet.
We weren't sure what to expect, but hoped for the best.
Our GPS took us just at the hotel entry.
The receptionist, the bell boy, the parking valet, the maid were very kind and helpful.
The rooms were nice, spacious and clean.
The pool and sauna were great.
The party for New Year was great and funny, the food was great.
We had a very good time and we kept some nice memories over the year.

Excellent place to stay in Stara Zagora. The room-a lux appartment- was spacious and very clean. The swimming pool very relaxing and the stuff from the spa reception very friendly and quite eloquent in english. The breakfast ,also, was exceptional: simple with great variety though of options. Nothing to complain about, except maybe from the lady in the reception desk when we were checking out. But, after all, this was a minor concern to an overall satisfactory experience.
