The town of Shipka is easily recognized by the glorious gold domes of the Russian memorial church rising out of the mountainside. It is located on the southern slopes of the Balkan mountains with a beautiful view over the Valley of the Roses and Thracian kings. It is an area historically and culturally very rich, with many attractions locally. These include; an abundance of Thracian tombs locally to explore, fishing and boating opportunities at a local picturesque dam, a horse-riding centre within a 20 minute drive and a new popular water park close by. Shipka is also almost equal in distance from the capital Sofia (200 km) and the Black-sea coast (250 km), making Shipka a good base for day trips to other places of interest further afield. Shipka is on the foothills of the Stara Planina mountains, with many walks and bike treks for all abilities located just 10 minutes from the hotel. The close proximity of the mountains with their rich forests makes it a perfect location for a relaxing break.
"Shipka IT hotel" is a family establishment. We like to give a personal approach to our guests and aim to provide them with a perfect service throughout their stay. Тhe hotel is modern yet cozy and comprises of 7 double (twin) bedrooms and 1 suite (2+2). All the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. The suite contains a living room, double bedroom and bathroom with a bath-tub. Both the main rooms in the suite have balconies with stunning views across the valley. All the bedrooms and the suite are equipped with cable TV and internet access. In addition, we can provide an extra bed if required during your stay. We have recently installed a small SPA with an infrared sauna and steam room for your enjoyment.
In the hotel restaurant, you can enjoy traditional local dishes as well as international cuisine. There is also a pretty outside dining area which is covered but open-sided. Meals can be enjoyed here if so desired (weather dependant of course!) The garden is small but very well arranged and stocked with beautiful flowers. There is also a corresponding outdoor pool, sun-loungers and an outside bar. Wonderfully cool evenings after hot sunny days make the garden area very popular with hotel guests.
