Accommodation In Bulgaria
Sunny days along the Black Sea Coast
Although most of Bulgaria is located inland, its iconic stretch of beach resort towns and industrial port cities along the Black Sea gives the country that sought-after coastal charm. One of the most popular areas is Sunny Beach, easily the country's biggest beach resort boasting hundreds of hotels. It's become increasingly common for young people seeking a party lifestyle to visit Sunny Beach, staying in lavish accommodation for far cheaper than on the typical party destinations of Ibiza and Thailand.
The small town of Nessebar can also be found along the Black Sea Coast. This Heritage-listed site is home to award-winning hotels such as Italia, Sol Nessebar Palace and Sol Nessebar Bay. More beachfront accommodation and lively nightlife can be found in Varna and Primorsko.
Glorious river-based cities in Central Bulgaria
Fancy a room with a river view? You should definitely consider staying in Bulgaria's central region where you can find cities such as Ruse (known as 'Little Vienna') and Lovech, which has a bridge housing shops. Also within Central Bulgaria is Gabrovo, where you can discover several historic buildings, monuments and museums.
In Ruse, you have a generous choice of hotels with river views including the towering Hotel Riga and the Anna Palace Hotel. While Lovech treats you to a selection of exuberant hotels, whether you're looking for luxurious lodgings or a more affordable room.
Bulgaria has winter covered too
It's true, Bulgaria has plenty of gorgeous beaches to go around, but there's still plenty to see and do during the colder months, thanks to the country's popular ski resorts. Bansko, located at the foot of picturesque mountains, is one such resort, where you can enjoy skiing or something a little warmer in the nearby mineral springs. Bansko accommodation includes plenty of award-winning varieties that cater to most budgets and styles.
Located nearby is Velingrad, home to numerous winter retreats that know how to help you relax while on holiday. As the region with the most mineral springs in the country, be prepared for plenty of warm pampering.
