The English Guest House has five lovely double rooms with shared, but spacious and immaculate modern bathrooms, in an artfully restored 150-year-old mansion. The guesthouse is owned and run by charismatic Englishman Steve Molyneux, who can do pick-ups from the train or bus station. There is free laundry service, sauna, wireless internet, a relaxing back garden and a lounge/kitchen with a communal fridge.

Description provided by property
Please be aware we have now moved to 34 Rayko Daskolov street, 500 metres away from our past location, map and directions shown on here are now correct for our new property.
The English Guest-house is a small family run guest-house situated only 2 minutes from the river Danube and 2 minutes from the main pedestrian centre of the beautiful city of Rousse in Bulgaria.
The English guest house is situated right in the very centre of Ruse, Bulgaria. Turning right out of the gate it will take you literally 120 seconds to the tranquil banks of the River Danube (Dunav), turning left will again take literally 120 seconds to enter the main square. The Vibrant heart of Ruse city.
The banks of the river are a haven for fishermen and women, a lively port area with small ships and boats passing all day.
The main square is simply wonderful, tree lined boulevards, cafe bars, shops, fountains, statues and some of the best Rococo architecture in Europe
The Hotel was fully refurbished in 2010, and although this work was done the original style of the building was retained.
All interior furnishings are brand new, but in a colour that matches the decor.
Very ceilings, with mouldings, huge doors, large windows making the house worthy of the name Mansion.
The most modern addition to the building is that it is wi-fi enabled, with fax machines and copiers for those on business, at times office computers will be made available for those wishing to keep in touch with friends and family, or just catch up on emails.
On the ground floor there are 7 bedrooms, 3 of which have en-suite bathrooms and come in a mixture of single, twin, double, triple or quad beds depending on your needs.
All rooms have curtains as well as nets, double glazed windows are fitted with fly screens.
Beds are comfortable, lined and towels are supplied free of charge.
Each room has its own TV with cable channels.
There are lamps, mirrors, wardrobes etc to make your stay with us enjoyable and give that feeling of being at home, which is something we work hard on to achieve.
The garden has table with parasol and chairs allowing us all to sit and talk in the evenings with a hot or cold drink.
Cold drinks, beer, wine etc can be purchased cheaply.
We will do our very best to ensure your stay with us is trouble free, restful and enjoyable.
For those wishing to explore our incredible rock monasteries and churches, as well as Rusenski lom UNESCO park and the other wonderful places of interest in and around Ruse we can arrange trips at nominal cost.
