Hotel placed in strategic position near the centre of the city. Professionalism, cleaning and courtesy are the main characteristics and a complete service to the customer. Breakfast desk is Always constantly fed by staff and is reach enough to meet all requirements.
Ok it was a good hotel in the centre of Varna.Near the shopping centre and the sea garden. Very good service, talking English and explain everything i asked for. The room was ok and the aircondition also. wi-fi acceptable. The break-fast it was poor, and sometimes i asked to bring some bread or croissant for the children as they are finished.
We stayed here from a recommendation from a friend, and reviews shown here. Its close to the City Centre, and walking distance to beach about 10-15 minutes, Quiet surroundings, with local bars and fast food in the immediate vicinity, Cafe across the road is lovely and much more accommodating than the Hotels breakfast bar that we felt was limited on choice, but for the price I'd say you get what you pay for. Reviews before mine say fluently English speaking staff, seamed this wasn't the case for all there staff, and communications was sometimes a waste of time and effort, Bar staff particularly didn't seam to understand a word we said and reception staff was a 50/50 as to weather we were understood at all, however having said that, ALL the staff was polite and courteous and wanted to help even if they didn't understand us. Its cheap its cheerful, not the best of locations but easy to find due to the Cathedral being right next to it, If you feel your getting lost follow the tourist signs for Cathedral to make it back.
Stayed at the Divesta several times over the past few years and it has always been a comfortable and pleasant base to explore Varna. The manager and staff are professional, friendly and welcoming and the rooms are large and comfortable. The hotel is set alongside the magnificent cathedral and just a few minutes walk (via underpass) from the pedestrianised area of shops, cafes and restaurants leading to the Sea Gardens. The rooftop Sky Bar (open in the summer months) boasts superb views across the city and is an innovative feature that sets the Divesta well apart from Varna's other mid-range hotels. Buffet breakfast is available in the downstairs dining room and while this may not be to everybody's taste, it is perfectly adequate to set you up for the day. Note: Parking is extremely limited and you will be asked to leave your keys with reception so that they can shuffle vehicles around as required .. seems a little unusual but, in my experience, perfectly safe.
Good central location, right by the cathedral so easy to find. Friendly helpful staff. I stayed here last year and had no hesitation in re booking. Room clean and comfortable, balcony with great view. Recommended for anyone visiting Varna.
We found the hotel pretty easily, it's right next to the cathedral. The receptionist spoke perfect English and he was very nice to us throughout our stay. Moreover, we received probably the best room in the hotel: direct view towards the cathedral, on the 5th floor - so we also got a glimpse of the sea from our window, and a huge DOUBLE BED (not two twin beds made into a double bed)! How awesome is that? The wi-fi and the cable Internet worked fine, we had no problems with speed or signal. The breakfast was a little disappointing in terms of variety, but the service and the coffee were great! Last, but not least, I would like to add that the rooms look a lot better than the photos ... they got rid of that horrible orange decor, and the now the rooms look very classy and elegant! I wish it was written somewhere on the hotel's website or Facebook page, that the skybar offering "the best view in Varna" was only open during the summer :( But then again, we received a room on the last floor (just like we asked when we booked) and it made up for the skybar being closed :) P.S. Please upload new, recent photo: the rooms look a lot nicer than the photos!
I stayed at Hotel Divesta for two nights on a business trip. The location of the hotel is central, close to the main shopping area and a bit farther away from the business district and the beach. My room was clean and spacious, and featured a comfortable sitting area. I thought the bedlinnen wasn't of the highest quality. I stayed on the fifth floor, which gave me a nice view overlooking the cathedral square, while still having excellent wifi reception. The staff was friendly and accommodating throughout my stay. The only real problem I experienced was that the air conditioning didn't do a good job at cooling down the room. When I complained about it, the receptionist promptly had maintenance take a look, but that didn't solve the problem. The room temperature stayed around 25 degrees. This was in spring, so I don't know how bad it would be in summer. Altogether I think this is a good hotel, but they need to fix the air conditioning before summer.
The hotel is situated very close to the cathedral in the city center. The staff is very nice and helpful. The firs room we were given smelled of cigarettes, so they changed it immediately. The breakfast was OK. The twin room and its bathroom were both spacious.
great hotel very inexpensive, comfy clean and central , great staff, esp young waiter with specs who was very attentive, and polite food was ok, we booked half board with travelrepublic but I wouldnt again, as it got a bit repetitive ,plenty of bars etc around there, hi fi was fine bank is near by.all in all we had a great time
We weren't pleased with the laundry prices...we dropped off less than one load of laundry and when we received the bill at check out, it was 58usd! The guy who took the laundry from me never mentioned the price list or even referenced it. We booked the place specifically for the laundry service! No, we were not compensated. The room had a terrible odor and the ac was loud and ineffective. The breakfast was standard and quite plain. Sadly the coffee was cold. The location was the best as it was near the cathedral.
