GREAT VALUE FOR SOLID PRICE

LOCATION

The hotel is located in the suburbs of Plovdiv, near the Plovdiv Plaza Mall. The Jagerhof brand started its journey as the first Bavarian brewery in Plovdiv. The family-owned business has been successfully operating since 2013, and the brewery has become the centre of the city’s social life. In 2021, the owners opened a hotel in the same location with a similar philosophy to offer a hotel product tailored to a modern traveller. Given its occupancy and following our visit, we can say they succeeded in their task. Hotel Jagergof is an excellent addition to Plovdiv’s hotel scene.

ACCESSIBILITY

Most guests arrive at the hotel by car. Thus, the management ensured spacious parking when designing the hotel. There is plenty of space, albeit there can be a bit of a jam when the brewery is full. Otherwise, the parking area is well secured. You can reach the second largest Bulgarian city by plane; however, the airport is poorly-connected to the world. Hence, an ideal option is arriving in Sofia and taking public transport to Plovdiv. The train connections are good, as is the highway that connects Sofia and Plovdiv, 155 kilometres apart. The train will take you to Plovdiv in two hours and a half.

COLD STARTER - Architecture and aesthetics

The monolithic architecture is marked by an imposing glass facade combined with a dark grey exterior that reaches the top. One of the hotel’s outstanding elements is its excellent functional design. It seems everything is where you would expect it within the hotel. The essence of the hotel is the elegantly-designed and appealing interior. Guests will be amazed by the natural materials, attention to detail, lighting and designer pieces of furniture. Select pastel colours are eye-catching, and guests will enjoy the spacious and warm lobby. Hotel Jagerhof, all in all, embodies a modern hotel story.

WARM ENTRÉE - The staff and the culinary experience

The staff was kind, professional and attentive beyond expectations. The hotel chambermaids embody the hotel’s kindness. Hotel Jagerhof is generally exceptionally clean and well-maintained, evident in the sterile lift and all surfaces.

The classic hotel breakfast could be labelled European, although slightly more diverse and rich than your average breakfast. The selection of desserts is particularly impressive. We did, however, miss the selection of local dishes and dishes devoted to guests with allergies and other food preferences. For lunch, dinner or a midday snack, we recommend heading to the nearby brewery offering a diverse and quality offer of dishes and their own house beer, Jagerhof Hell and Jagerhof Weiss.

MAIN COURSE – The meetings offering at the hotel

Hotel rooms

The segment that immediately stands out is the above-average room spaciousness. As soon as guests set foot inside the hotel, they are welcomed by the modern and elegant equipment with the walls embellished with iron geometrical elements covered in gold combined with dark black tapestries. Equally impressive is the bed headboard, engraved with the hotel logo and featuring a mighty leather wall. The flooring is, likewise, pleasant. The display case above the minibar is a stand-out feature. Details such as the lounger next to the bed make the room much more prestigious than its actual price. A solid bathroom contributes to that overall feeling. One could say that the hotel room meets all the needs and expectations of business guests and exceeds them with the quality of the bed and excellent soundproofing.

Meetings centre

An entire floor featuring five conference halls is devoted to events. Endowed with natural daylight, the largest one can host up to 100 attendees. The halls are named after German cities in line with the hotel’s concept. The lobby boasts an inviting lounge corner with coffee-making machines and a smaller business centre. Given the great interest in the conference centre, the owners are already considering expanding the hall in order to enable events to host 250 attendees.

DESSERT – The extras

The small yet excellently equipped fitness centre is one of the hotel’s advantages.

FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES

Artificial plants and plastic do not belong in an otherwise superb hotel. They can be encountered in the bathroom, breakfast hall and elsewhere.

TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES

A friendly and utmost professional staff is the hotel’s trump card.

FINAL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY

Although the hotel is not a part of a renowned hotel chain, it is on par, if not better, compared to more renowned hotels in Plovdiv. As guests, we appreciated the technologically-advanced hotel rooms and the above-standard sound isolation. The high mark of 9.7 on Booking proves how much the guests love the hotel. Its balanced, perhaps even too reasonable prices compared to hotel prices in Western Europe, are impressive. The hotel does not only convince with its excellent balance between price and spaciousness. Conversely, it wishes to sway guests as a rounded whole. Hence, guests are immensely impressed.
