Comments for Karlovo Hotel Sunny beach

Maj, Greg and Courtney | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful We are just back from a 2 week stay in the Hotel, there were 26 of us, all 17 or 18 so naturally the staff didn't like us too much to begin with. Assumptions asside, however, the staff were generally unfriendly - especially all the bar staff in the small bar/restaurant. The receptionists were a bit better bar one unfriendly one (also look out for the hot blonde!) The manager was helpful with all of the problems that arose, namely when two cleaners "borrowed" belongings from our rooms. However the hotel sorted that out and i dont think problems like that should arise again. Anyway, back to the hotel, which was generally clean and the shower ([+]view more) was powerful and had hot water. The rooms were small and basic but clean and comfortable, however i would recomend staying in the appartments if basic isnt what your looking for as they are massive compared to the rooms and are air conditioned and have microwaves and a kettle. The pool wasn't very clean compared to surrounding hotel's and if you wanted to use a sunbed you were required to pay 3 leva. Despite all of this we still had a good time downstairs at the pool and bar, after all the party's only what YOU make of it. In conclusion to this small essay,its a good location and was good for people our age and people just looking for somewhere half decent to sleep. If you are staying here make sure you look out for Peter in the Mini markent at the hotel, he was willing to share his bulgarian wisdom with us and dont be afraid to ask him anything. Yours faithfully Maj, Greg and Courtney from Glasgow, Scotalnd. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No K. Nicholls | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful Weve just returned from a two week holiday in Bulgaria and had a FANTASTIC time. Our two children were never bored because there was always somthing to do which didnt break the bank. We ate in Dino's and Tanya more than once and always had a lovely meal, served by really friendly people. Khans tent trip made a great evening (plenty of wine on the table) with great entertainment.
Dont know about the hotel but the apartments were lovely, large rooms and clean. A C in the bedroom is a godsend. Only downer of the whole holiday is one of the receptionists is very sour faced. Everything is an effort.(longish curly dark hair) Hope you enjoyyour stay as much as we did.

glyn hopkins | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful the staff from hell .no smiles no manners and worst of all try anything to cheat you. the hotel itsself is just about what you would expect for the star classification very basic. I know the linen changes are well pointed out in the balkanholidays brochure, but for a few more levs on the price needs to be sorted. marble floors with old fasioned carpet on the main stairs. half the rods not secure and broken neck waiting to happen. two weeks from anice relaxing holiday was finally ruined by the balkan manager in the globus office telling me what do you expect for 2 star (INFERRING BY HIS TONE OF VOICE THAT WE GOT WHAT WE DESERVED) SORRY IM ([+]view more) DISABLEED AND NOT ABLE TO AFFORD ANYTHING BETTERmust be me then!!!!!!!!!!!! Was this review helpful to you? Yes No d crossley | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful we have just come back having stayed two weeks in stalig 19 ( karlovo ) . we had better time out in the rain hotel was the pits. my brother is dissabled and they put him on the fifth floor when he asked to be moved he was told to pay 50 levs to be put on the second floor. bet you can guess what i said, they moved him but only after i made some threats, even mailin the rep wasnt interested he liked the blonde young and single people he helped them out .

philip cromie | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful Avery poor accomodation in the old part. No cleaning standard at all. I would not advise anyone to go here. The hotel next door (KLARISURA) MADE YOU FEEL WELCOME, when eating there. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Christine Colgan | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful Nice flight, Hotel very, very basic. Did not receive a maid service. Noisy, not recommended to elderly people or anyone with good hearing. Would not go back. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Ives Family | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful 27/08/04 We have just arrived home from our two weeks holiday in Hotel Karlova, Sunny Beach, Bulgaria. The Hotel was very basic but very clean. The showers in the bathrooms were fab and they where clean. The ladies came in every day and cleaned and tidied the rooms (Our 19 and 17 year old sons room was a tip). The staff in the hotel were freindly especially Toni, Dezi, Nellie and Raina. It rained twice while we were there which is quite common. The beach in the resort is really nice and clean, we could see fish in the sea. Watch out for large jelly fish. Our eldest sons had a great time with the Swedish girls, night clubs and bars. Its a ([+]view more) great place to take younger children, our 13 year old son had a geat time jet skying, mopeds and scooters (battery operated). Its really cheap, food, drinks and clothes. The only thing we all suffered from was a funny tummy. We went to Istanbul For two days, great trip but very tiring. Its definatley worth a seconed visit. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Lucie | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful Hi, ive just come back from three weeks in bulgaria staying in karlovo hotel. The rooms are basic (bed, dressing table, bathroom, clothes space), but i don't know why peole complain about the basicness of it. What more could you need than a clean place to sleep, relax and get ready in? You don't go on a summer holiday to spend all day sat in watching tv or lounging on a plush sofa in your room which is what some peole expect! well anyway, i had an excellent time. The pool was clean, the staff were pleasant, the rooms where fine, the bar had everything you needed and there was a hotel shop joined to the hotel. I had everything i needed and ([+]view more) that was just the hotel. The resort itself was wonderful. The resturants and bars where cheap for luxury food and drinks, and the staff where friendly and entertaining. The beach was beautiful and had bars along for a refreshing drink when the sun got too hot! Its a place not too miss. Im going back..hope to see you there too!!! Was this review helpful to you? Yes No KAREN HILLS | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful I have stayed in this hotel for the last five years, when it was surrounded by woodland and before it had a swimming pool! Each time being in July and in 2002 my friend and I stayed for three weeks. We kept going back to this hotel because it is small and friendly and unlike the big hotels, you get to meet up with more people. Bearing in mind this is a typical Bulgarian 2* hotel I think it is very acceptable. It was nice to see last year they had renovated the bathrooms, not that the old bathrooms put us off us in any way. But I personally enjoyed this hotel and the hospitality of the staff. The whole resort has changed so much over the ([+]view more) past five years and the smaller 2/3* hotels are made to look worse because of the big hotels that have been built, but it comes to something when you go to the Karlovo and never have to ask for your room key because the receptionist remembers which room you aren in! Nice touch. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Sicko | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful The hotel is basic but clean with very friendly staff who do their best to make your stay an enjoyable one. I have to say that my recent trip to Bulgaria was up there with the best of my trips to various countries, and the hotel was definatly a major part of this. A special mention must go to Nina, Stanislav, Dora and Desi who are the friendliest and most helpful and above all fun of all the hotel staff I have encountered. I would advise anyone to give this hotel a go and not not let the basic and old fashioned decor distract from what is a superb hotel, if you want something like the Ritz then go to Paris or Vegas but you wont meet peoplelike you do at the Karlovo . Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Brian | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful well i must say i think that the hotel staff are ok.
not unless you find you'r self a bulgarian woman and they treat you like a dog. they dont like it.
rooms are ok if all you need is a shower or sleep
the young girl at the reception is very igorant dont give her a tip she will back stabb you if you get a  woman. (not a hooker) and there's a lot of them

Charles | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful I agree with S.Cole only i have been there more recent, no fans, no fridge, like sleeping next to a motorway with the added fun of an all night car park absolutely no sleep due to the noise.English prisons are more accomodating wont be going back unless i am into kinky pain. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Louise | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful Hotel let down by the bedrooms, which are too small and quite dingy. The lower floor rooms also play host to the occassional cockroach or two!  However the rest of the hotel, pool, reception, 24 hour cocktail bar are all really clean and pleasant.  The reception staff are also very helpful and speak good English.  The Hotel itself backs on to the main road which in itself can be quite noisy, but there is also an amount of building work being undertaken across the road. So beware if you like a lie in!!!!!! Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Tracy | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful I arrived in Hotel Karlovo on 13th july 2003 with my husband famiy+friends,we were a bit worried as we"d never been to Bulgaria before and didnt know what to expect but we were really pleased, the rooms were very basic but clean as was the pool and reception area, and all the staff couldnt do enough for us nothing was a problem, were looking forward to going back to the Hotel Karlovo next year.

Jen Young | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful Have been going to this hotel for many years and I find it cheap/cheerfull and very clean. I would recomend it to anyone !

Yes No Stewart Cole | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful OK until you get into the room. carpets lap up the walls, paintwork black, shower/toilet falling apart, stinks of shit!
