The place is extremely beautiful, the rooms, bathrooms and open areas are very clean. The restaurant is good - both the food and the service. The only disadvantage was that the air conditioner was not working properly for the temperatures at that time of the year.

The complex is nice with a kind stuff, has swimming pool and small one for kids. The breakfast was delicious but I would not say that it was a 4 star breakfast, still it has Banitsa and real homemade yogurt, fresh vegetables, delicious cheese, etc. and really nice homemade cake. With my German boyfriend we were for a wedding there...

We stayed for 2 nights and this was more than enough. They have big garden with pool, but all the facilities need tlc. Not very pleasant experience at the reception as well. Wi-Fi is only available near the reception. The room was with wall view.

This is a hotel in a former monastery. We stayed here for one night during a short trip to Veliko Tarnovo. The hotel is very easy to find, on the road between Veliko Tarnovo and Arbanassi. The room as big and nice, bathroom as well. Big bed, the mattress not so great, but for one night sleep after a very...

This hotel is not bad, but has nothing to do with a four star experience. The rooms are spacious and the hotel yard and garden are very nice and that is it. The wifi is free but very slow and with bad signal. Bathrooms are cheap. We requested a Queen bed, but got two twins. AC was not good enough...

The whole resort is beautiful - buildings, landscape. The staff is polite and helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean. The food in the restaurant is tasty. The wi-fi service is not with a good quality. Having on mind the equipment in the rooms I would not say that this resort is 4*, maybe 3* will fit it better. The...
