Recommended hotels in Varna

By: Nofar Ronen

When we were on vacation in the Golden Sands, we visited the city of Varna twice. Varna is a really cute city that is stomach-friendly and has a broad offer of restaurants, cafes, shops and various attractions.

If you are looking for all-inclusive resorts or family hotels, then it would be better for you to stay in the Golden Sands area, which is about half an hour’s drive from Orna. Later in the post I will also provide details about hotels in the Golden Sands, but if you are actually looking for boutique hotels and more of an urban experience, then the accommodations in the city of Varna will suit you better.

Another advantage of staying in Varna itself is that you can visit it all year round, in contrast to the Golden Sands, which is an area that is only suitable from May to September.

I wrote a post with recommendations for things to do in Varna (in the post you will also get ideas for day trips outside of Varna) in addition to recommended restaurants there.

I decided to write you a post about the recommended hotels in Varna and the Golden Sands based on research I did from guest reviews and recommendations from friends.
