Hotel review: Wine & Spa Complex Starosel

We headed to the Starosel hotel because we had heard plenty of positive feedback about the complex and its winery. But it was kind of close to impossible to get a room for the weekend in summer. We got lucky because someone canceled their room at the last minute so that’s how we ended up staying in Wine & Spa Complex Starosel on a weekend in the middle of the summer.

Wine & Spa Complex Starosel, Bulgaria

Accommodation in Wine & Spa Complex Starosel

The property features deluxe double and twin rooms in Starosel hotel, as well as superior double (and twin) rooms and deluxe studios in Thracian Residence Starosel. The hotel and the residence are two separate buildings on the property. There’s of course, the outdoor pool (where we spent too much time), an indoor pool, and a spa center with a hot tub, sauna, steam bath, and specialty massages (like the wine therapy). The property is decorated in a traditional Bulgarian style, with many elements of wood, stone, and wool.

The restaurant features tasty Bulgarian and international dishes, there’s also a piano bar. The winery was the main reason for our visit, and the tour they organized was a nice way to immerse in the rich and varied wine heritage dating back to the Thracian era. We walked around the cellars and tasted great wines with bites in the tasting Roman-style area. Last but not least, we met the resident pets – the gorgeous peacocks.

Apart from chilling at the pool even when a summer storm hit, we managed to finish quite some work in our spacious room and on the balcony. We really enjoyed the peacefulness of the place and that we could combine working with having lots of fun.
