Room was at the third floor of 9 floors, excellent bistrot to have dinner or lunch, not costly, with all sorts of local food. Peaceful. Rooms are very elegant and well kept, with all facilities available. Out of the hotel there are steps leading to a small park that is behind the old King's Residence, and from there, another park...

We stayed here in August 2016. The hotel was a real bargain (80€ for a double room!) and very classy. Our room was just like the one in the main picture on this page, with a large bed, soft and firm pillows, and a comfortable seating area. The bathroom was amazing with a very big shower and toiletries by L'Occitane....

OK, so that is a bit unfair, but the unusual setting surrounding the ruins is the most interesting part of the hotel. Stayed for 3 nights on business trip. Breakfast was OK, although unspectacular. Room was actually cold (unusual for most hotels) and the air heating struggled to get the temperature up. Furnishings were ok generally, but a bit old...

Bulgarian friend contacted reception....

We had two very big luxurious rooms. It's really good value for money! Me and my friends very highly satisfied with the service (especially the room service was super friendly). Can't say much about the spa, didn't seem to be anything special.

Hmmm... where do I start! To begin with their system was down and it took them 15 minutes to sort my reservation out and get me checked-in. This does happen and when it does as it has in the past the hotels I've experienced this at have offered me a free beverage and a place to plant myself whilst they...

Very good, clean hotel located in a convenient spot for a very reasonable price. Walls were a bit thin but not the worst I have ever ex pierced. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was also very good by European hotel standards. I would stay here again.

The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of city center, service is very proffesional and rooms big, though without balcony what makes it hard for smokers. When you enter the hotel you can see actual ruins of ancient arena which looks really impressive!
