“Lovely picturesque hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2012

The hotel is close to the Danube and not far from the center; in an old building, really well renovated. We were there for only one night. Our room was wide and brand new; both in the rooms and in the corridors the walls are decorated remembering you the name of the hotel. Very nice staff, friendly but professional and helpful. Highly recommended for an overnight or weekend stay

This was our 3rd visit to this hotel and it improves every time we go. Very central position 2 minutes to the Danube and 5 minutes walk to the central square surrounded by shops,bars and restaurants.
The rooms have been re-furbished and are immaculate with everything you could need inc hairdryer, free wi-fi & air-conditioning. The restaurant is now a Chinese and has guests travelling an hour from Bucharest in Romania for dinner. Unfortunately the cellar bar was closed for renovations this time but it is a great place for pre or post dinner drinks and cocktails. Would highly recommend this hotel, the only thing that lets it down slightly is the state of the toilets in the public area and the breakfasts...but would still stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms 13 & 15 have an adjoining balcony, ideal for friends/family travelling together.

Stayed here for one night. The hotel is close to all amenities i.e. centre and the Danube. This is a small boutique hotel in a renovated old building . The rooms were spacious and more than adequate. What really makes the place is the staff who are always helpful and friendly. Food options are a little limited but there are plenty of great places to eat in Ruse so this isn't important. Highly recommended for an overnight or weekend stay.

I came across the website of City Art Hotel while I was searching for accommodation for myself and my aunt during the March Music Days classical music festival. We wanted to stay somewhere close to the venue where concerts are held - the so-called Profit-yielding Building (a beautiful piece of architecture, by the way).

I booked it over the phone and I was pleasantly surprised when I was told they didn't ask for advance payment or credit card details.

The photos on the website look attractive and there is no difference between them and reality. No hidden bad surprises for sure! Rooms are furnished in light colours, beds are excellent! Since I'm a tour guide I often stay at hotels and I can tell if a bed matress is good or not. Bathrooms are clean and all fascilities are new and working well. I would have been more satisfied had there been more towel hangers and a shower curtain, but those are minor troubles. The hotel is in its fourth year of use, I found out in a conversation with one of the receptionists later.

Staff is friendly and always at disposal, breakfast is nice and served until 10:30 am every day! A nice detail for people who are in Ruse for leisure of sightseeing. Clients of the hotel get a 10% discout off lunch or dinner at two restaurants in town - a Chinese one (next door to hotel) and an Irish pub.

The hotel has excellent location - close both to the main square and pedestrian shopping street (2 minutes) and the Danube river (5 minutes). Many museums are nearby, too. The distance to the main bus and railway stations is less than 10 minutes by taxi. Walking there is ok, too, provided you don't need to carry heavy luggage. It takes a 20-25 minute walk to there on Borisova Str.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a nice balcony, so ask about it when booking. Elevator doesn't go to the third f...

This hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the central square in one direction and the same to the River Danube in the other direction.

The service in the hotel was excellent and felt welcome as soon as I walked in. The room was spacious if rather stangely decorated. The room was spotlessly clean and it all looks like it's been re-done pretty recently.

Our room was on the first floor and staying on a saturday we could just about hear the bass coming from the nightclub in the basement of the building as we went to sleep. I'm not sure what time it finished as I drifted off anyway. It might be something to consider if you're a light sleeper though.
