Excellent view from the room and location, comfortable room
In my room, during the shower the water in the bathtub didn’t go straight away, but it was like a mini pool, only when I‘ve finished to have the shower the water gone away. Something to fix.
This hotel is a time capsule from a time passed. We booked five rooms here while visiting friends and family in Bulgaria. Many in our group grew up during and post soviet-era communism and this hotel for them, was like visiting their childhood. For us westerners, it was like time travel behind the wall. The massive emptiness of the once-bustling fancy hotel was spooky. The night club has a light up-floor and live DJ - empty and spooky and so, so cool. The cheerful and functioning bowling alley has the original wall installation graphics: a silhouette of a man bowling, wearing bell-bottoms. Everything is authentically, unintentionally, incredibly cool. The updated steam room and 2 dry saunas are nice! Not fancy, but clean and nice. The indoor pool is large and clean. Breakfast is standard Bulgarian hotel-breakfast buffet food - all super yummy - yogurt, fruits, veggies, meats, cheeses, breads, coffee , cereal, so much good stuff. The cabin lift to up Musala Peak is directly across the street. The mountains are beyond beautiful. The lift has a long line until noon, summer hikers head to the mountain early! The staff is a little grumpy, which is somehow authentic and charming within this environment.
There are no computers at the front desk and when you book online, you have to find the manager who has green screen and dot-matrix printer in the office. Which is not a bad thing, if you expect it!
The staff, the pool, the view, the location.
the breakfast was pretty plain. It was the same all four days. No variety was offered. Pastries were not fresh. The good thing were the salads, yoghurt and the coffee, and tea. Tv channels weren't enough. Could have put a chair and a table on the balcony.
The SPA center offers a lot of possibilities for full relaxation. It is renovated, clean and as me visiting off season, I was practically alone in there on most occasions. The linen was changed regularly, the towels and toiletries also. Bathtub in the room is fully enjoyable and the beds are very comfortable too. Stuff at the reception and in the SPA center was very polite and helpful. The hotel is right next to the Yasstrebets gondola lift. If it is working make sure you take it to go all the way up in the mountain to 2396m enjoy a magnificent few all the way down to Iskar dam
There could me more hot meals on the breakfast, as in some days the scrambled eggs did not seem freshly made.
