Many likes:
1) Location - perfect and I guess the nicest area in Varna - the Sea Garden, close to many tourist attractions, restaurants, cafes, children playgrounds, city center and beach as well. Easily reachable with public transportation (409) from airport, shopping malls (Grand Mall, Varna Mall), city center as well as Golden Sands. Just keep extra eye on your valuable belongings in (crowded) buses
2) Hotel was cute, small, private and had a nice terrace and free parking
3) Room on the last (second) floor was clean, quiet, spacious, with modern design and AC. Bed was comfortable, hygiene products nice (despite the fact I had to ask for more myself)
4) Personal was very friendly and kind. Although no one spoke perfect English we could take care of everything needed

Dislikes are minor:
1) Breakfast could be improved but was alright for Bulgarian standards. Dont expect hot breakfast buffet but there were cereals, yoghurt, sandwich material, some fruits, two juice kind of drinks. Good coffee though!
2) Not enough dining tables (altogether 4) outdoors - always someone was ahead of us, no one was eating inside as it was just so great outside

To sum it up: was a good value and would not hesitate staying there again. 4,5 points for the value :)

Good location, good size room, the bed was very comfortable, the room was clean and nicely decorated
The walls are very thin we could hear what our neighbors were discussing, it is very unpleasant at 11pm when you want to sleep, to hear everything from the other room. Also the door to the bathroom was a slider which did not provide much privacy

We spent three nights at Villa Duchess. Our first impressions were excellent. The hotel is housed in a charming 1928 villa with a nice garden which is surrounded by greenery. It is situated close to a main road, but this did not affect our sleep. Soundproofing is very good. Sufficient parking is available on site.

The hotel is located within the Sea Garden, within short walking distance from many of the local tourist attractions (Delphinarium, Zoo, Amusement Park, the Palace of Culture & Sports and the Pantheon) fine dining restaurants (Parmy Family Restaurant, BM Garden, El Kapan & Sea Terrace) and city beaches. The location significantly minimises the need to cross busy roads or use a car/public transport.

We asked for early check-in and the management of the hotel was happy to oblige. The staff were very hospitable and offered coffee on arrival while we waited for the room to be cleaned.

Our room was 202, located on the second floor. We went up two flights of stairs to reach it. There is no lift available, which might be an issue for some customers. The room and bathroom were modern, equipped with a large flat screen television & a/c unit and very clean. Our room had no balcony, but this is not really a necessity since you can go and sit in the lovely garden. The bed was very comfortable. Complimentary herbal cosmetics (shampoo, conditioner & shower gel) are offered to guests. Water pressure in the shower was very good.

Breakfast was also included in the room rate. The selection is what you would expect from a 3* hotel.

For the duration of our stay, the staff were very helpful and friendly. They were also kind enough to provide us with city maps of Varna upon request.

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Duchess, would definitely book again sometime in the future. Highly recommended!
