Bulgarian in Bulgaria
The plentiful hotels in Bulgaria range from small, local establishments to large, international chains. With the exception of the international chains, hotels generally do not require reservations. Most smaller hotels neither accept credit cards nor have restaurants.
The most economical accommodations are local houses that have rooms for rent. Many offer breakfast as part of the package. As well, the "mountain hut" is a special kind of rustic, Bulgarian lodging. The huts typically have a large common room with a long row of wooden plank beds. Proprietors usually provide blankets and pillows. Guests can arrange to have a simple meal, such as omelettes, cooked meat with fried potatoes, or warm soup. A special "tourist tea" or "mountain herb tea" often accompanies the meal.
