LION Hotel Sunny Beach

Reviewed 25 May 2012

We enjoyed a week there last summer and we have fond memories. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and we had nothing to complain about. It is a little bit away from the beach but it is the advantage when you want to be away from the crowds.
We already booked a week there in July. This time more friends have joined.

The hotel was clean and the rooms were large enough and comfortable. the pool was clean and the pool area was big enough for the size of the hotel. We were half board, but after the first day we did not eat at the hotel, it was bland, limited and luke warm at best. the hotel is in a quiet location which is nice and we were not hassled by 'sales'. The main beach & strip is about 10 minutes walk away. Overall we had a reasonably good time in the hotel & great fun in sunny beach!

I stayed here for 10 nights and i must admit, from the moment i arrived (in the late early hours) the 'manager' at the reception desk was very rude. There was a few nice staff members such as the bar man and a couple of waitresses but the rest was extremely rude! Even when politely asking for cutlery or a drink i didn't get a response i just got ignored!
The staffs English was very poor, although i must admit, i wasn't sure if most of the time they was pretending they couldn't speak good English to get out of answering questions.
When they did speak to you they tutted at you, rolled their eyes and gave you a blunt response!
The maids in the hotel openly come into your hotel room and start cleaning when you are still in there getting ready for the day.
The food was very bland and appeared to be the same food most nights!
The pool is also very cold!
The rooms are nice and spacious and are kept clean although the sofa bed in the room is very uncomfortable and the shower often ran out of warm water!
This sounds like a very negative review but the hotel staff really did ruin the atmosphere of my holiday for being so rude and unhelpful! Along with the Russians as we was the only English in the hotel i could not believe how rude they was!

The hotel was very clean in fairly good location, away from all the noise. Rooms decent size with good maid service. We were on 5th floor, so our balcony had no cover, so when it rained we were unable to use the balcony as everything was soaking wet ad the floor was slippery. Aslo had two evenings where we had no hot water to shower, mentioned it to reception, but they were not that interested really. The food was not good, but edible, the choice was very limited and kept repeating itself, having sprouts or broccoli with hard boiled egg and frankfurter is not my idea of breakfast! The hotel consisted mainly of German and Russian guests only heard one other couple speaking English. Some of the staff were very unhelpful, whereas others were fine. We asked reception where our homebound times were in the reception to be told they don't put up the English flights!! So had to call our rep who we only saw the day we got there, no sight of her the rest of the holiday. There is nothing to do in the hotel and the small swimming pools are very cold. Would certainly go back to Sunny Beach, but not this hotel. Next time we are going to an apartment as the food is so cheap and there are brilliant restaurants around with good food, just a shame that we had to use them so much after paying for half board.

Room Tip: Do not have room on top floor as no cover on balcony. Eat out.

The hotel is in a great location just back from the beach 10 min walk, The rooms are big enought and the staff are really freindly, Thats the good. The food is where is goes BAD on our frist night we went to the restaurant for dinner there was a limited selection and so I went for the chickhen when i cut into it it was only half cooked, I went back to the serving area and told one of the waiting staff and she took the chicken away so i was happy they had paid attenion the problem is 10 mins later another tray came out and it was the same. I spoke to the manager who said it would not happen again but we didnt eat there again. But i would stay there again just stay out of the restaurant. There are loads of good place along the beach anyway.
