Nice and spacious rooms. Great location. Reasonable prices. A bit cold during our visit but there weas a small heater provided. Overall not too bad. Breakfast was alright, just enough to get you going for the day.

Staff was very helpful and polite (they gave us free room upgrade too). Room was standard, with some nice local elements (like the fireplace), very clean, and hot water/wifi were available at all times. Apart from the minor issue with the heating, I can say that money-wise Despot Slav is pretty good option to stay in the beautiful town of...

The first thing that greeted us inside was the lack of lighting. When I went down to the reception to point this out I was...

On the price its good for staying, but, the food at their restaurant.... Better go to other places, waited almost an hour for starter, which came after the main dish and not worth the price u pay. Better restaurants nearby

Very nice place. The room and bathroom were clean and the breakfast tasty. The hotel was quiet and cozy. The only minus was a bad smell from the drain , but it's possible that I was there in a bad moment.

The hotel is perfect for relax - clean and quiet. We were impressed by the good service. The staff is extremely responsive. The food was perfect - homemade with quality products. The wine was wonderfull. We'll come back surely. Thanks for the hospitality.

Small Hotel in traditional style, not very fancy, but acceptable for its price. The breakfast was good and varied - fresh vegetables, pancakes, french toasts, Bulgarian traditional banitsa . The room were not very clean and for the 2-days stay no one cleaned it up or pick up the garbage.

The room and the bathroom were nice and clean, there were extra blankets in case you get cold. The breakfast was really nice and the staff were friendly and helpful. Nowhere to park but that's the problem everywhere in Melnik.
