There is a minibar.... More

Chose this hotel, purely on its location, situated as it is, right on the banks of the Danube. Not the prettiest looking building from the outside but on entering the lobby, what a difference! Really welcoming staff, bright interior and were offered a free upgrade into an executive room. Fantastic room on the 9th floor, nice modern furnishings, extra deep... More

I stayed there one night this summer with my family in a big apartment, but in a general poor condition. The position of the hotel was excelent, easy to reach by car, close to the citycenter, with a good panorama on the Danube and on the city. The guys from the reception were very friendly. The breakfast was good.

The hotel is located just 5 minutes walk from the center of Ruse as well as being right on the Danube River. Free parking, free Internet, and good food - especially at the Panorama restaurant on the top floor with an outstanding view of the whole city and the Danube.

Some pros and cons below... + Spectacular views of the Danube + Very close to the city center so it's suitable for walks and sightseeing + Dinner/drinks in the Panorama restaurant are a must! Views are breathtaking and prices are reasonable. + Breakfast... More
