The dorostor was socialist times probably one of the most famous luxury hotel with directly at the beach. Architecturally it is so designed, that the rooms also at 35 degrees temperatures no air conditioning need - it is with an open window just the air to cool use. Opposite the 'modern' hotels with air-conditioning the following advantage: you can sleep with an open window and instead of air-conditioning devices-fan the sound of the ocean. Apart from that the rooms are small and the furniture, etc., old. The hotel itself offers only breakfast at, because other times hotel restaurant at other ..., further away from the sea away all inclusive-hotels rented is. All rooms have balcony with a view of the sea. The hotel is in the heart of the beach- and abendlebens of albena - because of the strandorientierung all the rooms apply however no impairments through noise on. All hotel guests received at the beach uncomplicated and free sun loungers/ sun screen. In the direct vicinity of the hotels is amongst others a reasonably priced and delicious mexican restaurant, we three (2 adults, one child) for circa 25 Euro most delicious food and various drinks a beautiful evening could. In short: after we the week before the Sonnenstrand in a modern luxury-all inclusive-club -hotel had spent, we in the dorostor 2 freedoms enjoyed: first, we could even select, when and where we want to eat and the second we could with an open window and cooler breeze sleep. Only the lack of child care stops us from a unlimited recommendation from. read hotel review
