Dear Mr Vasilev, actually You never came in our hotel. It is only this name on the booking blanc. Instead of you, the room was used by two women. The booking was originally made for a double budget room. The older woman, who paid the room, liked the room and did not complain. Later the same day, the second woman... More

Great place with great service. The Owner Desi and her daughter are very polite and helpful. Great location that is in walking distance to many restaurants and bars. Would definitely come back as well as refer it to my friends to stay here also.

Wonderfully situated place at downtown Veliko Tarnovo and yet quеit. Friendly and responsive staff. Some tiny things could be improved in the rooms but the general impression is one will not regret staying at this place.

Very close to the old town and to the castle. The room was big, as well as the bath and very clean. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. Good quality provided for the cheap price. Friendly people, in general, good!

Great hotel near castle with eateries nearby. Very inexpensive on the USD conversion. Very polite staff and room was immaculate. The Studio bath was a jucuzzi bath. Robes were included in room. Small hotel, but very nice.

The hotel is OK. The staff is friendly, the room is big, the place is clean; But: a little bit too noisy, the bathroom too smelly and the pillows need to be improved.

Just made a quick and simple decision after a brief look at reviews, while in transit to Veliko Tarnavo. Got upgraded to a large and beautiful room after I booked a budget room.

We stayed at this hotel between December 30 and January 2nd. The hotel is cozy, clean and the staff very friendly. It is very close to the Tsarevets castle, 15 minutes of walking to the center or 5 minutes by car. Excellent price. Credit cards accepted. Worth a visit. Free parking is available nearby. Free wifi available, but it doesn't... More

My wife and I stayed for four nights (attending a conference nearby). The hotel is very close to the royal hill. Friendly and helpful staff, tea things in the room (a rare phenomenon in Bulgaria), as well as a chess-and-backgammon set (a touch we liked), enough electric sockets, large bathroom with tub, good breakfast. On the opposite side, the hot... More
