If you are staying in Plovdiv this is the best bed you can sleep on. Inside is very clean and the staff is kind and do their job. Inside there is a nice restaurant with great food where you can orther some of the best meals in Bulgaria.

In 1906 when the hotel was build, it no doubt... More

Grand hotel Plovdiv, the previous Novotel Plovdiv is a great hotel, very well architecture. It is one of the best built hotels during Communist time. It is luxury at all spheres. We love this place to spend some weekends there.
