Pros: Excellent! Extremely friendly staff, we made mistake with our reservation: booked the room for one date, arrived at the another. Anyway they provided us the room without any additional payments. Great view outside, very beautiful countryside.
Pros: Rather nice and quiet place
Cons: The complet absence of any touristic information. Sometime, very limited communication with the waiter on duty if you do no speak bulgarian.
Pros: The place, the scenery is very beautiful. The stuff - pleasant and helpful. I liked the food very much.
Cons: The decoration of the rastaurant is too much for me.
Pros: Homemade slivova rakia and good food in the restaurant. Friendly staff. The room was large enough to be comfortable for a stay of several nights, although we were only there for one. The location was peaceful despite the river being a raging torrent due to heavy rain. Excellent value for money.
Cons: Felt a bit sorry for the stuffed lion and other animals in the restaurant.
Pros: Location is great, perfect for longer or shorter stay, beautiful surroundings, staff very attentive, food was great.
Cons: Not too sure about the stuffed animals in the restaurant. Perhaps someone else's choice.
Pros: Mountain view,good food,friendly staff.
Pros: The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious with a little fridge. The restaurant is right above the river with lovely views. The menu has lots of choice and the food is tasty and cheap.
Cons: Very little not to like! Perhaps if you want to eat breakfast there isn't a specific breakfast menu (but we enjoyed the pancakes!)
Pros: Great location - within the mountain, by the river. Stunning views near by. Sound of river makes you sleep. Absolutely relaxing. Good value for money.
Pros: The place is fantastic and for sure a magic location. The area is splendid with beautiful views. The kitchen is 5 stars
Cons: The reason why I give low ranking are the smokers. People smoke everywhere without control: in the restaurant, rooms, porch, lobby and so the smell is unbearable. This is unlegal, absurd and insane in a similar place where I go to stay enjoing pure air and health.
Pros: It's a beautiful boutique hotel in serene ,peaceful surroundings. Friendly staff and owners who make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. Will be definitely coming back again

Pros: The room was spacious and clean. It was well organized, bright and tidy.
Pros: The location
Cons: Everything was in bad condition. There was a smell of cleaners on the entire floor. As well as inside the room. There wasn’t fresh air at all. The staff was not gentle. In the restaurant half of the food was frozen. The breakfast was poor and cheep. Everything seemed old, no refreshment. The door of the sauna was broken, it couldn’t stay closed. The swimming pool is a small jacuzzi in fact. We are very disappointed. It is not worth the money.
Cons: Staff. Poor and reactive service. Good terrible
Pros: Nothhing. Would not go back to that hotel. I expect when I go somewhere to be treated at least politely.
Cons: I did not like that the bed was not one but two tiny ones put together. The spa was not working on Friday, we asked for bathrobes ( which are paid extra...) and they did not turn on the sauna and hamam so we had to wait for them to heat....very unpleasant. The reception staff were impolite. Not worth the money for the experience we had, I have been to a lot of places, and this spa has been the worse and quite expensive. The food is horrible, nothing healthy in the morning, the coffee was disgusting, there were several rotten fruits.
Pros: The effort put by the staff of the restaurant to serve and have happy clients.Plenty of space ,nice for young children.You could use it as a substitute (backup solution) when everything else around Sofia is booked and you definitely need to go out for a day (for one day only). Breakfast good for Bulgarian taste (fresh juices made onsite available -which is exceptional for this case)
Cons: There is no real SPA - who says the contrary has never visited a real one after year 1980 .There is no WiFi in the room (and the whole region is still before G3 mobile era) so you will be off line all the time. Pets are accepted only in a specific (the worst actually) part of the hotel but they will not tell it to you until you arrive onsite (and they will change your booking without advising in advance - our case). Beds of very cheap quality level. Breakfast for Bulgarians only (that are used to specific dishes) .No serious sound isolation between the rooms .No refrigerator in the room.Half of the TV channels were with very bad image .Overpriced for what is offering.
Pros: The room and the bathroom were really big and clean.
Cons: The swimming pool in the SPA center was very small, pretty much the size of a Jacuzzi. It barely could fit 3 persons and only if they are not moving around.. It was really odd that the breakfast in the first morning was of buffet type (all you can eat basically) and the second morning we were given a breakfast menu, from which we could order only one dish per person, and we had to pay for any additional food, which was free the morning before..
Pros: Great value for money spent . The room was very big and comfortable .
Pros: Good restaurant and good location!
Cons: Rooms are tiny and not very clean. The interior looks quite old and not properly maintained. Wifi in rooms is non existent. It's pretty noisy if you are on the first/ground floor. Beds were low quality and small. No sound isolation between the rooms. No refrigerator in the room. All TV channels were with very bad image Buffet type breakfast was terrible. Pretty much nothing to choose from and definitely no healthy options. The toasted bread that was probably toasted last night as it was so cold might be the best choice. Restaurant menu is patheticly small. Not only that but the food quality is terrible. Had stomachache the whole night after having dinner. The staff was pretty terrible. Don't even think about parking in front of the hotel as there seems to be room only for the cars of the staff. You can park in the grass going down a pretty bad road where there is a good chance you'll scuff your front bumper unless you are with an SUV. Defintely WOULD NEVER VISIT THIS PLACE AGAIN!

Cons: They need to improve the breakfast . It was poor .
Pros: Very beautiful location, all the Balkan hills around! Nice pool with very clean mountain water, no any chemicals in! This pool is like diamond surrounded by herb fields and woods...
Cons: The personal at the restaurant - all young ladies, but no enough experience and training. They can perform much better and efficiently, if some experienced trainer work with them couple of weeks. The food is good, but the service mist be updated.
Pros: The panoram mountain view.
Cons: In the price for the hotel, nothing except the room was included. The breakfast was surprisely disgusting.
Pros: The staff was very friendly. Swimming pool clean and nice. The food in the restaurant was a variety of Bulgarian and Ukrainian cosine. We like it very much, thanks to the Ukrainian chefs.
Cons: Staff efficient and smiling. However they were watched 24/7 by an old lady sitting and smoking non stop in the corner. Old habits never change in the Balkans
