Old hotel with nice location, good breakfast= The room is terrible, too small, with old towels and blanket, with terrible old bathroom. This hotel is 1 *, not 3*. It is too expensive for that poor room I shall never go there again

The hotel is not fully renovated but the location, the lobby, the restaurants (especially panoramic restaurant), the staff, the service, the view are exellent!!! Strongly recommended if you want to be in the heart of Russe and to have great view of Danube river!

Don't be confused about the three stars. This hotel is the best hotel we have ever stayed in Bulgaria. The staff were very helpful. The hotel was clean. The decorations were very good. The room was very spacious. There wew 46" LCD with 130 channels. We took superior room and it was worth every penny. There was a seperate aircondition in addition to the standard heating system. The Danube river view from the window was outstanding.
Panorama Restaurant at the top was perfect. The prices were low but the meals were delicious. The staff at the restaurant were very kind and professional. The breakfast was also very good.
The hotel is very near to city center. There is no parking problem at the hotel.
I think hotel manager personally deal with us. It was a five star hotel experience.

Room Tip: I think 9th floor is for the superior rooms.

I stayed there on a business trip, thank heaven it was only for one night! Very good location, great view over the Danube river. According to the reviews apparently there are renovated and non-renovated rooms, of course mine was non-renovated - dingy, dusty and very depressing, I guess untouched since the communist era back in 1985. The bathroom was also awful. Disgusting experience, horrific squalor. Never again!

I spent just one night at the hotel, but I am impressed with the design, spacious rooms and great view to the Danube. Very polite staff. Breakfast looks rather modest and does not correspond to the overall good impression.

If you go there - choose renovaated room. The hotel is old and many of its rooms are awful.

The staff is great though and the restaurant with the garden near the river is amazing.

The breakfast is full of many delicious food.

Room Tip: Choose renovated room

Very nice hotel in on Danube river, i suggest absolutely to book the Superior Room: fabolously renovated and big, with a beautiful view on the River. (I paid 50€)
The personnel extremely kind and professional.
Panorama restaurant on the highest floor, offers an interseting and delicious menu with really affordable prices. Waiters really professional and gentle.
In Ruse is a must to go there.
