This hotel is perfectly located to view the Tsarevits Fortress and the sorrounding areas of Veliko Tarnovo. It is also within a block or two from a quaint, pedestrian shopping area on Kapitan Georgi Mamarchev street, full of shops, stores, cafes and restaurants. The hotel has 4 stars and is well rated by guests. The rooms are spacious, with minimalist furniture but adequate closets. Up to date bathrooms have modest amenities. The restaurant is satisfactory. The hotel has ballrooms suitable for large events or conferences. It also offers indoor and outdoor pools, a work-out facility

Room Tip: Valley views are superb

The hotel is a little dated. Rooms were clean. Rooms are large. One the whole most of the staff we encountered where very nice.
Breakfast was included. Not bad.
We twice had a club sandwich in the cafe bar. It was excellent.
Overall not bad at all.

the place has good reviews so we gave it a try. It has a great location and we paid extra for a room overlooking the fortress but these two are the only advantages the place had to offer us.

The staff is very cold and formal and also sloppy in their looks. Not a good face for the hotel. At least the girls at the front desk could have combed their hair when serving people!

The rooms were small and not cleaned daily( except the beds), the TV was so very small and offered very little variety for the non local visors. The breakfast offered was so plane, not varied at all and was served in a sloppy way and was cold. The decoration of the hotel, dining room and the lobby was ancient old fashioned and unappealing.

The worst part was that they had only one (yes, only 1!!!) tiny elevator that could not fit more than 3 people so we had to wait endlessly in order to get around with baggage.

Make sure you don't lose any of the keys or towels because they will be glad to charge a ridiculous penalty fee.

Definitely a disappointment !!!

Room Tip: you can get a room overlooking the fortress but know that there is a train passing so it can be pretty loud.

- top location, in the Veliko Tarnovo center, with a stunning view over the Tsarevets and Yantra River
- the location helps allows you to move quick in all directions, even out of the city, reaching Arbanasi in 10 minutes
- very professional personnel, from the valets helping you with the luggage, the receptionists, the waitress from the downstairs cafe-bar to the cleaning ladies and the restaurant staff
- very well maintained hotel (despite the fact that it's an old hotel), the designs from the lobbies, rooms, restaurant are classic style, in a perfect match with the view and the atmosphere
- very large, spacious double room, well equipped: normal beds, table with armchairs, closet etc
- very large, spacious bathroom, also well equipped and very clean
- lobby from the reception with fireplace, comfortable couch and armchairs and an exceptional view
- the pool is small comparing with other hotels but there are not many hotels with pool in Veliko so it's nice to have it and to use it, very clean area, water not very warm but you can enjoy it
- outside elevator, the same view of Yantra River and Tsarevets, very nice to use it when you want to go to the restaurant, or pool or just go outside the hotel
- very good food, at breakfast but also a-la-cart, you can taste Bulgarian traditional dishes and most important is that the restaurant is located on the river and fortress side
- the cafe bar from the same floor with the reception serves frappe, lemonades, cafe and some sweets specialties, very very tasty
- Free Wi-Fi signal in the rooms and common spaces,quite good signal

- in the pool area the showers are in a wrong location, it's civilized to take a shower before and after using the pool but you have to wait because it's located in the same area with the toilet, at the end of the locker room
- the heating system is rather difficult to control, outside temperature was like Spring, not snowing at all, but in hotel was extremely hot, even with the heating off

Stayed: December 2017

Yantra grand hotel located minutes from Veliko Tărnovo castle. And right at the foot step of the Old Town. It simply cannot be any more convenient. The hotel was a bit dated. Bed was so so. Staff were friendly
