This Soviet style seventies monolith is on the river in the center of town, next to a pedestrian bridge leading to the old town and shopping area. The lobby is large and cluttered, with pleasant check-in staff. There're extra charges if you want to use the gym and/or swimming pool. Secure parking is 10lv/night (5 Euro). Rooms are clean and...

You can just see this as a place for the Communist Party members of old to meet. Massive hotel with lots of amenities. Staff courteous and helpful. Nightclub, piano bar, restaurants, bowling alley all on premises. Fitness center compliment by 25m lap pool. Only slightly odd thing was the seeming approval of the staff and manager of the sole escort...

Stayed there for New Years Eve. The Hotel was full and busy, but nevertheless the staff did their job quite well. Breakfast was diverse, fresh and the buffet was always full despite the many people. The rooms were clean and renovated. The only disappointment was the Spa Center which was small and dirty and the dropping internet connection. The Hotel...

Stayed here for an overnight stop on a tour and liked it. It is a big hotel with roomy public areas and professional staff. Our room was very nice - recently done out, I think. It had a kettle in the room which is always welcome. The bed was comfortable so we had a good night. The staff we saw...

You don't feel like you're in Plovdiv anymore once you set foot in this ultra modern and very international hotel. Amenities are great, rooms are large and confortable. There are a number of stores attached to the hotel (great for shopping without having to leave the premises). The choices offered at breakfast were the widest I have ever seen in...

Not a bad hotel, but it has steps everwhere. To get to/from the hotel lobbly/reception, to get to/from the elevator that goes to the room floors, to get to/from the restaurant, and to get to/from the gym all require climbing some number of stairs, and not all have hand railings. In 1906 when the hotel was build, it no doubt...
