Recent guest reviews
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.
The hotel is situated near the stunning cathedral. Buses and taxi's are within a one minute walk. The hotel is very clean, the staff very polite and friendly and can speak English. The breakfast is continental so expect cheese, cold meats, fruit, yoghurt, cereals, toast and salad in the cold cabinet and fried eggs, omelette, spam, sausage and always an extra like eggy bread or some local speciality in the hot cabinet. Tea, coffee and jams in abundance. Do not expect a full English breakfast.The room was very clean and the bathroom spotless. We had an excellent WiFi connection. A lovely hotel within walking distance of all parts of Varna for the sightseer. Up in the Sky Bar we had an excellent viewpoint over the city.
The Hotel is located near the Central Bus Station, a big plus if you're coming into or going out of Varna by bus. One thing Divesta has going for it is that the rooms as huge. Seriously huge. Unnecessarily huge even. For example, in our room for two, we had what appeared to be a living room within our room. There was a sofa and everything. On the downside, the wifi was rather weak and the breakfast was pretty bad. I'd recommend skipping the breakfast and eating at the roast chicken eatery next door instead.
Staff was nice and friendly, rooms ok, with AC working. It is close to shopping places, but pretty far from the sea. Generally the feeling about the room was positive. However, WiFi in our room was slow and weak, breakfast barely average, very bad juice-like drink, some cut and fried sausage which was suppose to be bacon. Parking space is actually on the street, under trees, which means after 3 days the car was very dirty.
