Reviewed 24 September 2017

We stayed for one night in this hotel, having travelled from Bucharest by train and taxi via Gorna Oryahovitsa and arriving at around 7 p.m. We were warmly welcomed and given plenty of information for our short stay, including clear directions to a restaurant that we had booked. Due to a delay on our train, we were running late and the receptionist (really sorry but have forgotten his name) kindly called the restaurant (Shtastliveca) to explain that we were running late and to keep our table. The room was a good size with a Juliet balcony looking towards the town and Bishop’s Residence. There was a minibar and safe in the room and the bathroom had an excellent, very large shower. There was a great roof top terrace with fantastic views towards the castle and it was possible to get a drink from the bar next to reception to enjoy on the terrace. Breakfast was not particularly to our liking and the “juice” was very poor, there were a number of items to chose from but nothing particularly appetising. Other than that, the hotel was excellent and I would stay here again.

Modern, perfectly located and excellent reception staff all make for a very pleasant stay at this gem of a hotel. Good value for money too. They offer the best possible view of the fortress from the rooftop, even if you aren't lucky enough to have a room with that view. Our room was on the highest floor, facing the cathedral, and that was just as special. There is no elevator, so carrying up the luggage is a bit of a mission, but at least the staircase is wide and it's only maximum 4 floors. Everything is modern, spacious and very clean. There's a bar fridge in the room as well as tea and coffee making facilities, and complimentary toiletries in the large, luxurious bathroom. The only odd thing was that the safe was just standing loose in the wardrobe and there wasn't a luggage stand or rack in the room. The entrance to the road/free parking is not well marked and was difficult to find in peak hour. The poster inside the signboard along the roadside where you have to turn in had slipped down on itself so it was not easy to find on arrival.

I agree with other reviewers that breakfast is not great. The offering is limited and weighted heavily in favour of cakes and pastries and hardly any protein. But you can watch the fortress on the TV that shows a live feed from the front of the building, so there's always a bright side to everything at this lovely hotel! Definitely my favourite hotel in all of Bulgaria.

We booked 2 rooms and we were very pleased. The wellcomming and staff were extremely kind and helping us. The rooms were not so big bit lovely and very clean. The breakfast was average. However the balcony has an amazing view. The location is great and I can only recommend the hotel.

front is situated in a walking only road, very old/quaint, in the old part of veliko,which is very very nice, full of history, clean, very friendly, the BEST views of the castle if you ask for a front room,others say they have the best, but trust me, they have not..... private parking,and breakfast inc, you can get cheaper but none has this view, worth the tenner for 2 people extra than some others in the area, downside, no lift, booking.com seem to mess with the prices on demand, the bar /mini bar is dear.
pluses, terrace, view, friendliness and willing to please,

Room Tip: ask for the front rooms, watch prices over a few week, go up and down, like most in bulgaria, longer...

Pros: Excellent location, walking distance to the fortress, shopping area and restaurants, private parking. Spacious and comfortable room (304), with a great view to the Cathedral`s dome, large modern bathroom, making tea facilities. Outstanding panoramic view of Tsarevets and Trapezista from the roof terrace. Friendly staff.
Cons: A persistent unpleasant odor in the room coming either from the carpet or the air conditioner, lack of a luggage stand in the room, poor quality breakfast.
