Hotel Varshava
Reviewed 14 August 2010

OMG where do i start this is a classic case of a hotel from hell i kid you not!!!!

Its a total embarrassment to Bulgaria and shame on the following tour operators who send un suspecting innocent holiday makers here..

Balkan Holidays
Thomas cook
Thompsons
Co-op
First choice

The food is totally disgusting with last nights dinner from the hostal side being served to the hotel side i use the word hotel loosely my boyfriend ate twice in the dining room only to spend two days in bed with diarrhoea and stomach problems a real danger to young and old alike i couldn't touch any of the food and i'm not a fussy eater the thought of it was enough to make me retch!!!!

Drinks are limited to wine and beer only and all soft drinks are rola cola type cheap nasty pops, and cordial type orange juice even the coffee or tea couldn't save the day they were vile....

The pool was filthy with a film of dirt and oil coating it see pictures i will up load for you... the pool is also suffering with subsidence making it very dangerous with floor tiles sticking up at all angles easy to cut yourself... the pool was finally cleaned 10 days after our arrival after my boyfriend was spotted taking photos...

The rooms are disgusting with even the clean towels and bedding sporting old stains the floor was never brushed or mopped in the two weeks we were there no tv or air conditioning as promised we had to hire a fan for 3 Lvs a day...

This hotel is used as a youth hostal for eastern european students see photos they were rude ignorant and very ill mannered pushing in the lifts taking over the pool area 200 kids aged 16-19 there favourite past times seemed to be throwing burning toilet paper from balconies glass bottles smashing at 3 in the morning with loud rap music keeping us all awake smashing the lift windows and toothpaste and other toiletries smeared over the doors etc....the "teachers" who were looking after them had no control with them coming in at all hours in loud drunken states...

The staff were miserable and un helpful, bar two members of staff... We were all in the same boat and many paid up to a £1000 to be transferred to a bed and breakfast near by all ages even younger couples without children were hopelessly depressed in this hotel which would serve well as a prison in fact i'm sure prison would be nicer...

If you have already booked this hotel my heart goes out to you i would see your tour operator immediately and up grade believe me you really don't want to put yourself throu this hell...

I have been away to many hotels all inclusive and have never had to leave a review like this it doesn't do Bulgaria and favours which is a total shame as bulgaria is lovely the beach is gorgeous and i would return again but want to forget all about the hotel Vas@@@ta what a dump it needs knocking down for health and safety reasons go at your own peril....

reception dirty and smelly,staff ignorant and no help,lift a death trap.Rooms unclean, dirty beds,dirty towels it was worse than a prison cell.Food unedible,swimming pool filthy and dangerous.Dont believe what you read in the brochure, after looking forward forward to this holiday for nearly a year it was the original holiday from hell, i wouldnt recommend it to my worst enemy it wasdisgusting.Balkan should advertse hotel varhava for what it really is a hostel and stop taking money off people who are looking for a family holiday.

We knew this was 2 star, but when we saw web site and brochure we thought it looked ok.
It was awful.
Horrid food (i am not a whinging Brit) I have eaten all over the world and been to most med countries on package holidays and this was the worst.
I took my family all inclusive and couldn't stomach more than a day or two before we got the rep to move us.
It is a 18-30 doss house, OK for youths who want a cheap bed to sleep off a hang over.
Food awful, pool unsafe, lifts unsafe, leaks, lots of flies. Too unplesant to sit around and have a drink at the so called poolside bar.

This hotel should be closed down
The photo on the brochure does not show the Hostel part of this hotel, it is part Hotel part Hostel full with with horrible Polish students and their student leaders ( about 130 plus ),The run riot, throw burning toilet rolls and cigarettes ends ,empty beer bottles left over foods from the balconies,forget relaxing around the pool or go for a swim, forty or so will turn up and take over the beds, the pool and any where the can sit.
At night the will run along the corridors and bang the doors, come in drunk and shout untill at least 3am. and if that was not enough it would be the drunks, the loud loud discos from around the hotel/hostel
We only got 3 hours sleep every night, there behaviour must be the worst we have ever experienced on any holiday ( Sweine Leute as the Germans say).
The Hotel is dirty and smelly, room was only cleaned and fresh linnen and towels given because we kept asking. The corriodors where filled with fridges and furniture from rooms as more and more students arrived, so that they could put camp beds in every room to maximise the numbers.
Breakfast was so bad, that on the 2nd morning i had a rotten boiled egg, the bread was allways stale and the coffee wasreheated in urns if it was left over from the day before, pasta left overs from the students would be served from their dinner the day before.
Lunch and Dinner was like Russian roulette, will I or will I not get salmonella food poisoning today.Ask the staff what the food was they wouldn`t know, unless it was chicken which was allways under cooked.
The hot food would arrive in large picnic type food boxes, a woman would take the tempartures, but is was never hot , if you like chips you allright, milk, melon would sometimes be off, cold meat would be put out on a table day after day, even if no body
wanted it with out refrigeration.
Dessert was allways thin slices of swiss roll or some kind of cream cake ( small)
The wine served out of two liter lemonade bottles was good if you had tummy problems, it would clear your gut nicely.
Prisons in the UK served better food,and the don`t call it All inclusive
To eat in this place is dangerous especialy for the young children and the older generation.
This Hotel must be closed down, its breaches all health and safety and fire regulation, Balkan holidays should act more responsible and stop sending people , if you do go their make sure you take at least £1000.00 with you, no not for spending that is what it will cost to be transferred to other hotel
