Known as The City of the Seven Hills, Plovdiv contains two ancient theatres, Ottoman baths, a well-preserved old quarter and narrow, cobbled streets. As the cultural capital of Bulgaria, more and more tourists are visiting, meaning the hotel options are expanding. Here are the best places to stay.

Local artwork and ornate mirrors adorn the walls, with handcrafted furniture and colourful Persian rugs scattered over oak floors. It’s a small hotel so guests are well looked after. Breakfast consists of homemade cakes and pies, unlimited coffee and fresh fruit – enjoy it outside in the pretty tiled courtyard.

Vibrant, velvet furniture and fluffy, warm rugs bring this spacious home-from-home to life. It takes its name from the bakery that once stood in this quiet spot near the heart of Plovdiv. Today, you can take breakfast at the Lobby Bar, which spills out onto the tree-lined streets with terrace seating. Expect a friendly welcome, too – this place is a great base to relax during a busy city break.

Don’t miss the breakfast here – homemade Bulgarian banitsa (cheese pastry) is served with fresh coffee – and it’s also worth hanging around for pre-dinner drinks on the roof terrace, where you can enjoy a beer with friends or other guests.
