Came for a 1 night break from Varna where I live to get away for the weekend. I love Albena and its a great place for kids and thought it'd be nice to have an evening meal and a few drinks without worrying about driving home. The room was cheap, especially for July (32 euro) and I had low expections...

This hotel needs serious renovation of its rooms. Our room was small and smelled of old, the bathroom was stinky. They have put a baby crib which was wooden and broken and quite dangerous for a 1 year old baby. After my complaint it was changed. There was no remote control for the AC even after i asked for one....

We stayed here for 4 days in August 2010, I thought I stepped through a portal into a different time, I think the 1970's sounds about right. We were there with our family from Sofia and Plovdiv so the language was not a problem. We got two suites on the 16th floor so the views were absolutely stunning. It was...

If you are looking for a nice, cozy, romantic, relaxing or kid-friendly hotel, this place is not for you. If you are a little wild and will use the hotel mostly for sleeping, then this is the hotel for you. Three things are great about this hotel: (1) the price: so small compared to anything else; (2) the indoor swimming...

The only good thing about this hotel was the view from the room and the location in downtown Albena. Otherwise really nothing positive! The staff could barely speak any other language then Bulgarian and they weren't particularly nice. The hotel looked ok on the outside, but inside the rooms were miserable...old furniture, old stench, the toilet wasn't working and there...

The Dobrudja Hotel is famous for many reasons. When opened, it was the tallest building in Bulgaria and is still the highest building in Albena. It was an elegant and spacious upper-class hotel for uptown guests (definately not for the working class in communist Bulgaria) and there are still traces left from these golden days. But the pride of Albena...

We booked this hotel over a travel agency that had ranked it as a 4-stars hotel...The price was spicy enough (for being Bulgaria!) to fit that profile, on the pictures it looked nice even if a bit socialist so we went for it...Later we found out by checking online booking websites that it is generally awarded 3-stars...
