It's been a while since we stayed here but it was a really nice week. It's a good hotel, with a very good price-value. Clean rooms, nice pool and spa. Correct food. Nice surroundings. Something different than Austria or France.

The Hotel Accommodation was good but the food was very poor. We were there over Christmas and they had a Christmas dinner in the evening on Christmas day but we gave up at 10:15 when they had not served the main course. The first course was not very nice and the fish course was so salty we could not eat...

Lovely hotel in the quieter side of town yet only a few minutes walk to the centre. Friendly staff,good size rooms and very good restaurant. Superb facilities at the spa with excellent swimming pool sauna steam room etc. This hotel is superb if you want a friendly hotel within walking distance of the Gondolas , restaurants and bars

We stayed here 2 years ago and decided to return this year. We were not disappointed. Plami from Profi tours sorted everything out and did us an excellent deal. A special mention to Steffan the waiter who looked after us all week and kept us supplied with drinks over dinner. The hotel is clean, the rooms are huge, the food...

Very central yet off the busy strip. 5 min walk to gondola. Pool and spa just lovely. Food plentiful and varied - breakfast fantastic. Could do with new window blinds and and covers! Staff helpful but a bit grumpy.

Our stay here was via our booking with Balkan Holidays. We chose the hotel based on the reviews mentioning the rooms being well equipped and the pool, jacuzzi and steam room. Whilst the hotel did not fail to have well equipped rooms and the fact that on arrival at 3am we received a wrapped sandwich and fresh fruit the rest...

There are some goid things and some not so good things. Arrived about 11pm on a Saturday night, following a long transfer from Sofia with Balkan Holidays. Wasn't expecting anything other than a sarnie when I arrived, but pleasantly surprised to be advised the restaurant was open until midnight. Restaurant was pretty quiet, and medium sized buffet of salad bar...

My son and I shared a room for a week the second week of January. Large twin room,very clean and tidy. Staff on the whole friendly and efficient. Whilst food might not have been the strongest point of this hotel it was passable and would have benefited from being served warmer. Short walk to the gondola or a courtesy bus...
