If you want total relaxation and peacefulness, then Hotel Perla is the place for you!
We are a younger couple in our mid twenties and after a bit of a rough year we really wanted a nice quiet holiday destination, and as we have no children we didn't want to be surrounded by other peoples screaming darlings ... We chose well!
The hotel is run by Maria, a lovely woman who will do what she can to help, her son and 2 other lovely members of staff!
The hotel is situated in a residential road so no noise, but it is only a 5 minute walk to the bus stop headed to Varna!
Taxis can be booked through Maria, these are roughly £3 to varna (minus tip) and £7 to Golden Sands .... If you use Bulgarian versions of Black Cabs make sure you negotiate a price before you get in or they will charge you £30 for a £5 journey!! We learnt the hard way!
From what we found in our week, English is hardly spoken as Varna isn't a huge tourist trap, try and learn a few basic Bulgarian words and remember that head nodding means 'NO' and shaking means 'YES'... I caused a lot of confusion with my head movements!
The rooms were basic but immaculate, the beds are extremely uncomfortable so use the blankets to pack up the mattress!
Food offered is traditional Bulgarian and may not arrive as you'd expect it to! However the tomato soup and shopska salads are delicious!
We were B&B but we never ate breakfast (toast, boiled eggs, preserves and meats) Meals for two in Varna including drinks never cost more than £15 a night!
Rooms are sold as fully air conditioned but you do have to pay for the privilege, fridges can be put in your room for a 5lev fee!
Over all the staff are just perfect, we would definitely return to this hotel but we will take a kettle next time :)

Perla Hotel, Varna
As this was my first trip to Bulgaria I had only the information provided by brochure/travel agent to base my expectations, as others have mentioned not everything we were told turned out to be entirely accurate.
We requested a quiet relaxing location, away from the usual noise and buzz associated with beach holidays. In that regard we got exactly what we asked for, and after some early adjustments we loved that aspect of the holiday. We took the 31 bus to Varna from the top of the main road almost every day costing just 1lev each. In Varna there's lots to do, plenty of pubs/restaurants if thats what you want, free guided tours of the city in English and Museums/Cathedrals to admire.
Admittedly we didn't spend a great deal of time around the hotel, we ate breakfast each morning which, as others have mentioned, was toast/eggs/cold meats etc. I did expect a cooked breakfast after booking B&B but perhaps my own expectations were a tad unrealistic looking back. The hotel itself is very well presented from the outside, high gates on the drive, a nice garden and pool to the rear.
In regards to the room itself we were a little disappointed, the furniture was dated and the beds were unbearable, I challenge any couple visiting in future to have any form of activity with their partner without feeling like every other room can hear each movement. In addition to this the curtains were dirty and towels. although being changed every 2 days, had a strange smell that caused me to use our own beach towel after showering rather than use those provided. Finally I would say the balcony is pretty much a waste of time, majority of the space is taken by the air conditioning unit leaving only enough room for one small chair. A worrying sign was there appeared to be another door leading to our balcony making me believe we were expected to share that small space with another room.
That said, we found the staff to be incredibly helpful and polite. Maria collected us from the Airport and pointed out places like the Grand Mall and gave us a lot of information regarding public transport and local landmarks. Throughout the entire week Maria and her staff couldn't have been more helpful, although at times the language barrier caused a few awkward moments.
One thing I would say to anyone visiting, when considering any excursions avoid the Varna Panorama Tour, not only were they an hour late to collect us but the trip itself consists of a bus journey to Varna and then 'free time' to explore the city before collection later in the day, 59lev for what costs 2lev on the public transport without the time constraints!
As a whole I would say this holiday opened my eyes to an alternative, a holiday without commercialization where majority of the time is spent speaking with local people rather than other holiday-makers. As a result I will be looking for similar locations in future, but its unlikely I would choose this Hotel again.

Good for Bed and Cheap Breafas....
Get What You Pay For! Is So True at Hotel Perla
Need some place to sleep well this is not too bad for the price! Run by good people.
Mobility issues? Hotel is built way up on a hill; you would have to go downhill for getting out and about.
NOTE:For health walkers walking up a long hill may present a challenge.
Beach? Not a quick walk or within easy reach from this hotel. It’s a good hotel for the price and for a simple relaxing and sun tan round the pool area. If you wish to get out and about it will require some effort as in transport may be required.

Pleasant Hotel away from main ....
If you want to be next to the main tourist areas this is NOT the place for you! If you want to sample and discover the area, we would recommend this as an excellent peaceful base camp, on the outskirts of Varna.
The hotel is a friendly family run "home" ideal to recover for the next days exploration and is suited for the more mature cultural explorer working to budget.
The local beach advertised is about 1.2km away, but on roads & pathways that look like they may go nowhere. Head past the recycling bins near the bus stop and just keep going down till you find a tranquil bay/small beach with a single bar/restaurant (found on first afternoon).
Hotel is clean, well laid out and staff very helpful and offers a good local breakfast.
Bulgaria is very good value, but they tend to charge for any extras so beware or you could pay twice the price by making poor choices. Buses are excellent and cheap so use them.

Perla Hotel in Varna
Recently returned from a Balkan Holiday to the Hotel Perla in Varna Bulgaria 20/07/2012 (not to be confused with the Hotel Perla in Golden Sands). A family run hotel with only 11 rooms. I booked this hotel not knowing what to exspect as it was my first visit to Bulgaria. On arrivel in Bulgaira, we was met by the Perla Hotel owner Maria, whom was very lovley. She drove us in her car direct to the hotel.
On the drive from Varna airport to the hotel, Maria pointed out some places to visit. The drive took about 15/20 min. When we arrived at the hotel, its was dark, and the area didn't look very good, and we wondered what we had come too. Our room looked very old fashioned, but was clean.
We were staying half board, breakfast was basic, bolid eggs, toast, ham, chesse, jam's, but nice.
Mariea and son David were very helpful and welcoming. The pool was clean, quite and very relaxing, but you are charged 5 Lev a day if you used the beds round the pool.
The hotel was around 5/10 min in a taxi to St Konstanine and around the same to the city of Varna, the bus took around 20 min and was only 1 Lev, even better was Maira would sometimes drop you off, the come back for you at an arranged time.
If you want, night life, this is not the hotel for you! There is not much around the hotel for an evening out, but if you like to just relax in the bar and chat to other holiday-makers ( perfect ) Local beer is 5 lev for 2 everywhere.
This area is perfect if its a cheap holiday your looking for. A meal out costs around £15 for 2 people with a few beers, and we for no matter where we ate, in the hotel or out, the food was really good. I'll just say we got we were looking for, a cheap, relaxing holiday.
I would like to thank, Maria, David, Sovdco and all the other staff for a fab holiday.
Would we go again? Very much YES!
