Grand hotel Plovdiv, the previous Novotel Plovdiv is a great hotel, very well architecture. It is one of the best built hotels during Communist time. It is luxury at all spheres. We love this place to spend some weekends there.

It is so not difficult to train your Front Office stuff to say "Hi" or "Good Morning". This is all !And it is a basic which you did not have. 6 AM so early or it is not? Other check out procedures are something unexpected or something impossible to achieve I did not expect anything and I did not get...

Nice hotel, OK rooms and good service. The hotel has couple restaurants. I recommend you to go and have coffee at Cafe Vienna. The hotel also has a nice tennis court. It has couple shops. The room sizes are normal, maybe even a little bit bigger than usual.

Booked early evening when we arrived was surprised to see front of hotel cordoned off. Apparently weekend leave for NATO troops stationed locally. Price was good hotel was clean well appointed but a little sterile. No problems with our room and hotel is located next to pedestrian river bridge to the old town.

The hotel front desk staff are amazing and they are willing to help out to ensure your stay is as good as it can be. However that is where it stops, the rooms are old and outdated and you should wear a parachute when exciting the shower sits very high off the floor. Additionally, the water drains onto the floor...

this was once the one and only hotel in Plovdiv, not it has been changed, but not for good. everything is mediocre, besides the service, which is cordial but cannot change the feeling that this is a hotel staying only on the old glory. good for 1 night business trip. Breakfast is not remarkable, free WiFi works well

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Plovdiv as a family group for three nights in May. When we arrived, the approach to the hotel main entrance was coned off so we had to walk the last 50 yards with our cases. First impressions were good. The reception area is spacious and leads on to a spectacular atrium which runs the...

The exterior is uninspiring, but the lobby gives off an air of luxury. Unfortunately, the rooms do not match the quality of the lobby and are grubby, dated and stale smelling. Paper cups for the hot drinks in the room instead of ceramic. I am sure there are better value hotels in Plovdiv.
