The Mini-bar Tale!
This is a really smart little (15 room) hotel here in central Bourgas and not hugely expensive either. The building itself dates back to 1925 and was designed by the Italian architect Ricardo Toscani who was also responsible for Bourgas's (and Varna's) superbly styled "Art Nouveau" railway stations. The Hotel Chiplakoff (or with a "v" instead of the double f as some of its literature attributes) is considered a local architectural monument and was originally the townhouse of a local merchant named Bozveliev.
Having become a little delapidated in recent years its modern reincarnation as an hotel was started in 2004 and completed in 2006 by the eponymous developer Atanas Chiplakoff who has lovingly restored the building to its former grandeur.
The rooms themselves retain the building's character whilst adding modern touches such as the immaculate "wet room" bathrooms, wired internet, direct dial telephones and a mini-bar. Ha! The "mini-bar"!!
I honestly have no complaints whatsoever about this hotel: , the receptionist was friendly and spoke reasonably good English, the room was spacious, the bed comfortable, the internet connection worked, the standard of housekeeping excellent. But...but...the advertised mini-bar! Ach, well, I wasn't here to spend all my time in my hotel room trashing the mini-bar (with or without guests) and so the fact that it's contents were 3 APPLES was not a major problem. Yep, a mini-bar containing 3 apples is definitely a first for me - HA!
Unique Quality: As I've said tho' - this is a nice little hotel and only about 10 or so minutes walk from the railway station and the town centre. The residential area it is situated in has a couple of interesting little bars and restaurants, and the hotel too has its own rather chic-looking restaurant. Unfortunately I missed breakfast and so can't comment on that but for the 30 Euro price-tag which included said breakfast this was definitely an excellent choice.
Yep, I'd definitely stay here again.
Directions: Up Hristo Bolev Blvd from the railway station, Ferdinandova is second on left then continue about 300 metres. Beware of the street sign tho' as last time I was here someone (a taxi driver??) had turned it thro' 90 degrees which made life a bit confusing!
