Facade is unlike other big hotels, nothing so especial about the hotel building. Its not even located at the central business district. My first thought was, why we were not put in a much bigger, known hotel?
Inside is different story. It was small but charming and cozy. And when you get inside the rooms, then that is when you will be delighted that this is the hotel you will be staying in and all other negative thoughts will vanish. I could say its has a feeling of being very homey. I could stay there for a long period. The drinks in the fridge are also complimentary, including the local beer.
Another best thing is the restaurant. Its very classy and it has the best buffet breakfast spread for 3euro! Staffs are nice also. :)

... open. If you enjoy Dali and Picasso, you would enjoy the items they had on display at this art museum. If not, you probably would think that the art they displayed was a bit odd. Plus, the museum was very inexpensive. It was totally worth the price for people who like that kind of art.
Right across the street from the palace are what used to be the palace gardens, but is now a friendly park. How friendly? The benches aren't bolted down. People were picking them ...
... this elevator? Could it drop? Would we have to spend the night in here? All of these questions were going through my mind. At one point, I was leaning against the door,.....deep breathing,.....with my hand up to my forehead. The sweet, young clerk said...."You have headache?" DUH,.....do ya THINK?
By this time the clerk gave up getting us out, and called an elevator service. He said that we should be out in about 40 minutes. This was music to my ...
... a train to Bucharest which didn't get us back until 10:30pm. You can definitely tell why Bram Stoker picked Transylvania for the setting of Dracula. The mountains and surrounding areas look very ominous when its getting dark. Its very rugged and dramatic. Apparently that area of Romania holds the majority of the brown bear population for the whole of Europe not just Romania. Our flight left Romania for London at about 11:30. We got in at about 2pm. But thats another story! Stayed tuned for ...
... I was struck with such a lovely strand of homesickness that I grinned for the next hour.
After a particularly pretty train ride through the east of Slovenia I could swear we entered Serbia. And thus I entered another unexpected 'things I have done for the first time’. Having crossed through three countries (Italy, Austria, Slovenia) in one day to get to Slovenia – a first for me – I then managed to do this again but WITHOUT REALISING. I’ll be ...
... a tip of course but these two tours were better than most of the paid ones I have done so well worth paying something.
Bulgaria is know as the poorest country in the EU. But there are all the fancy shops, restaurants etc here so you dont have to miss out on all the luxuries in life. It just means you can get it all at half price ( compared to Turkey).
And this is the way to travel - independantly.
