The first impression you get when you enter the hotel is the overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke, make no mistake this is a smoking hotel. Even if you book a non smoking room all that means is that you will not be smoking in there. We stayed here twice, both times in non smoking rooms which smelt of smoke; the second room even had used cigarette buts outside the window from the previous guests, even the ‘fresh’ bed linen smelt of smoke.
The hotel does have no smoking areas in its restaurants but the separation is hardly effective, all of the floors have public smoking areas so as soon as you leave your room you are hit with the smell of smoke.
The 5th floor panoramic bar is a no smoking area but as we were apparently the only non smoking guests they were not bothering to open it. If you have the slightest aversion to the smell of smoke or you suffer with asthma or any other breathing difficulties this is not the place for you, that said smoking seems to be endemic in Plovdiv so you may not find anywhere better.
Breakfast is served in a no smoking environment but there is no effective separation between the breakfast area and the lobby which smells of smoke so you need to head right to the far end of the breakfast area to escape the smell.
On the plus side the hotel is well maintained, the rooms are very spacious and the staff are generally very helpful and friendly. There was a large and varied spread for breakfast including both local and international food which sets you up for the day.
If you have the time, take a walk out to the old town and the roman amphitheatre which you can see from the 5th floor panorama lounge.
