    The hotel is iconic and the face of Albena but the room interior and facilities are outdated. It will be nice the owners of the hotel to do renovations.

    The WiFi connection is only in the reception so it would be good in the rooms. The bathroom must be repaired and also room furnitures.

    I like the location and food.

    The room without air conditioner, so it was not so much comfortable during summer time. In the room of my colleague, air condition system was wrong sealed and fluid leaked on the room floor (carpet) . The staff didn't have react on this problem with enough attentions. When I asked about a new room the staff said that no another rooms for her. After long disscusion, the worker sealed air condition system and after next days washed the carpet in the room. I do not want describe the room condition, because I knew that is old hotel and accepted it. Not so bad. I know that hotel is old but staff should be serves and be helpful for the hotel guests.

    The hotel in good place of Albena, closely to main street, and no so far to the beach. Good quality of meals. Pleasent view from the terrace on 15th floor on Albena and sea. Very good price/value ratio.

    Didn't like the lack of in-room WiFi

    Very friendly front desk staff Facilities are older - place was built in the 60s and most of those fittings are still there. There is a gym but you have to pay extra Comfortable room for the most part Slightly expensive for what it is Location is excellent - just off the main Albena promenade Bed was fine No WiFi in room, but you are given a login to enjoy wifi outside the hotel and around town Breakfast cost extra

    The furniture (except the bed) is old, and also the bathroom fittings. In fact, almost the whole hotel is pretty much unchanged from the 80'S. But the only real problem is the lack of air conditioning. In hot summer days the temperature in the rooms which are in direct sunlight is over 30 degrees. You can open the window (and the door) for ventilation, but is not very pleasant. If you are the 'all inclusive' type, this is NOT the place for you.

    But if you would like to travel in time, back in the glorious era of '80's communism, this is a great place for you. The socialist -modernist architecture of the 18 floors hotel is beautiful, and the views from the higher floors rooms are spectacular. Also, there is a fully renovated cafe with panoramic view (from the 16th floor) of the beautiful landscape surrounding Albena. In 1971 the hotel was clearly "the king" of Albena and If you are the 'nostalgic' type with appetite for 80's spectacular architecture and do you like heights and small prices, this is the BEST place for you to stay in Albena.

    I knew what to expect and didn't have major disappointments as it was just for a night for a few hours sleep but I wouldn't say this is your hotel for a long holiday. Food is not tempting either to put it mild. Look for another place for a relaxing stay.

    It's been a great hotel in the past but it's a different story these days as everything is very dated. But at the end of the day you get what you pay for so think twice before you book. Café at 15th floor is still a great place. Location is great, staff dealt promptly, no major issues if you are prepared what to expect.
