        The perfect escape! If you want to find yourself in a place where to switch off and recharge, Gela Hotel is the place to go. As I am not a person for "traditional Bulgarian atmosphere", this place with modern, yet perfectly fitting with the surroundings design where the natural wood and stone come just in place, fully corresponds to my idea of finding the balance. The team is really friendly, welcoming and catering to all guest needs and preferences. Some unexpected experiences made the stay interesting. I would recommen for corporate events for about 15-20 participants, an escape with friends or a family trip.

          Amazing place❤️ We loved our stay and it was the perfect mountain getaway. Everything is so beautiful and cozy there that we didn’t want to leave. One of the best things is the view and the design and architecture are very well thought making you feel you’re alone in the mountain but with the comfort of the hotel perks. The staff and the owner were very nice and accommodating and made our stay even better! P.S. the homemade wine is delicious.

              A green jewel in the heart of the Rhodopes We just spend a great moment in this gorgeous spot. The view from the hotel offers a sense of serenity like only unspoiled nature can. This eco friendly hotel seamlessly combines authentic charm with modern comfort. The owners dedication to his guests and his desire to have them discover the beauty of the region made it a great stay.
