Lovely small family hotel situated in the old town, overlooking the Assens Monument. Friendly and attentive staff. Nice spacious clean rooms in traditional decor. Breakfast with service (not buffet) and very satisfying. Will stay again, highly recommended.

I choosed this hotel based on several good reviews on a booking application. I announced a late arrival and I received probably the last available room. This was the beginning of one if my worst experiences in accommodations. The room was not very clean, also in the bath was a bad smell... I became the night killer of two disgusting... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night (we were booked in for 4 nights, but we had to return to Scotland as my father was rushed into hospital). This historic city took 3 hrs to drive to from the capital Sofia (picking up a hire car at the airport car park, 100m walk from the main terminal). Once... More

The rooms at the front have great views from the balconies, so be sure to ask for a room with a view! Everything was clean, the staff was very accommodating, and the prices were very reasonable. The hotel's location was a short walk to the historical attractions that Veliko Tarnovo is known for. I would stay here again.

I visited Veliko Tarnovo in August with my boyfriend and chose Gurko based on its Trip Advisor rating. I was certainly not deceived. The building is beautiful and represents the Bulgarian Revival in arquitecture. The staff was very friendly (I had made a mistake with the date of the booking and it was changed without any problems). Also it was... More

I had a double room above the restaurant that had an incredible panoramic view from the wonderful balcony. The room had loads of space (30 sq m) and was very clean with very nice traditional wooden furniture and character. Breakfast was in the very traditional looking restaurant downstairs: Eggs, cheese, ham, yogurt, olives, bread, banitsa, chocolate cake - enough to... More

The room was spacious and the view was fantastic as promised! But the bathroom was very small, the shower was in the tub which lacked curtains. The tiny sink that splashed you every time, you had no surface to put your staff on. Taking a shower resulted in flood on the floor, wet toilet seat and everything else in the... More
