I've stayed 2 days at Divesta hotel in in the city center of Varna, about 100 m from Cathedral. Location is great, a lot of shops, restaurants&bars nearby, and the public beach is 15 min by walking through city center.We had a lot of choice for the breakfast , the room was clean and spacious, the single inconvenience is the noise from outside, but this is something normal if you want to stay in the city center of Varna.
The hotel staff is very helpfully if you need anything...so, it was a very pleasant weekend visiting Varna.

This hotel, by far, was my favorite part of our trip to Bulgaria. We could have stayed at one of the resort locations 20 min out of town but chose this hotel. We arrived late and had arranged for the hotel airport pick up. Staff were extremely courteous and helpful. We upgraded to a larger room for a relatively small amount. The public beach is right across the street and the main area for shopping and restaurants is about a 10 min walk. I felt safe in this area although we didn't venture out late. The public beach access is right across the street. The beach has numerous beach bars where you can drink or eat. They have great seating, umbrellas and views of the sea. This hotel is a great value for what you get.

Loved this hotel. Felt like home. Great design, great pool (there's an outdoor one and an indoor one), and the staff was super friendly. Had a couple of issues but they were small:
Food was the same everyday and a little variety would have been nice, the bathtub in the room could have been larger, and the bartender looked like he didn't want to be there at all. Also, the lights in the room, while they were a nice yellow color, could have been brighter or adjustable, as there were times when I couldn't see anything in the room at night. I would also have loved strong WIFI in the hotel but it was largely only available in the lobby.
But overall, it was a superb experience and I would suggest it over any of the larger hotels closer to the beach. It was snuggled a small distance from the beach, which I appreciated, and the design of the hotel was super nice. Give it a try!

They were working on the hotel and during breakfast we were listening to machines chip up tiles which was not very relaxing to say the least. The spa services were nice and reasonably priced. It was a beautiful location and over all a pleasant stay.

I chose this hotel based on your description, that is misleading. The location is not Varna or Golden Sands, it is somewhere in between( 13 km away from Varna) There are two hotels called Magnolia 1 and Magnolia 2 and it is not clear who gets what hotel. Both hotels are "all inclusive", and you cannot get a la carte meals or decent coffees. The private beach charges for sunbeds and parasols.The pools are not attractive and again, the all inclusive bars dont allow choice for non all inclusive clients.The four stars are an ambitious self perception of rather poor service. English is not much used by staff. All in one, it is the kind of place where you dont want to go back.
