Good hotel, but the service to be improved
Great location and the room; it’s visible that the management has experience and cares about the guests. I would stay once again here, but I need to share the negative points: the day guy at the reception is absolutely unfriendly and behave like i asked him to borrow me money whenever i asked him for and iron or to talk with the courier (as I don’t speak Bulgarian). The young guy who worked at night is in opposite helpful and friendly. The cleaning is less then average - they pack the garbage from the trash bin and keep it in the room like I have to throw it away by myself. The WiFi is not working in the rooms properly.

8/10 Very Good

Hotel is in a safe and good location for walking around the city. The staff are very helpful. I am not sure if the bar functions, as it was never open for the week we stayed. The only real negative was the lack of internet in the room, and slow internet in the lobby. Great hotel for tourists, but limited for business due to internet.

Car park was secure but very tight, worth booking ahead for the slot. Although advertised restaurant was open until 9pm, it wasn’t as staff stated it was closed. Breakfast was below average. Room clean.

Good, well located hotel but with room to improve
A nice, well located and clean hotel. Friendly staff and decent breakfast. Areas to improve - whilst staff were friendly, they had virtually no knowledge of tourist info, recommendations, not even where to get a daily travel pass for the train. They also need to learn to smile more! When we asked to get our stored bag, the reception simply gave us the key to get it ourselves. Towels were also changed every day even when clean which is not very eco friendly. Despite the above, I would recommend and it would not take a lot to provide an even better service.
