I stayed at the English Guest House for the first time in August 2010, halfway through an epic trip in an ancient Land Cruiser from Burgas in Bulgaria to Cluj-Napoca in Transilvania. Having the occasion to pass through Ruse again (this time in the reverse direction), this was my first choice for accommodation. I booked at a few hours' notice, and luckily there was a room available. From the train station, the #11 bus on Borisova Street (ticket 1 leva) takes you to within 100 metres of Freedom Square, and then it's ten minutes walk, across the square to ulita Rayko Daskalov. The street is not especially attractive but the location is unbeatable if you want to walk to the Danube and the city centre. The guest house has been renovated recently, there's free wi-fi, there is a new kitchen in the basement, with the usual provisions for self-service. The refrigerator is full of food and you can help yourself even if you get up at the crack of dawn. You can buy a beer from the mini-fridge in the lobby. My room was spacious and perfectly clean, with a private bathroom. The hostess is, as always, charming and helpful. For me, that's what makes a place worth returning to.
