On a brisk day in September, during the Bulgarian Day of Independence festivities in the City of the Tsars, on a quiet street in Veliko Tarnovo, another special event was occurring in town. At the recently opened Bey House, Veliko Tarnovo's first proper five-star hotel, Tsar Simeon II and Tsarina Margarita arrived at 4 Chitalishtna Street in Varusha South neighbourhood. They were greeted by owner Boris Blagoev and General Manager Veselina Kaneva. As Their Majesties crossed the threshold through the original stone walls of the estate, first built in 1864, they were met on a red carpet by the Bey House staff, standing in formation, awaiting their arrival. At that moment, Her Majesty Tsarina Margarita cut the ribbon at the entrance to the newly renovated property, and Bey House was officially consecrated.

Their Majesties then toured the four "royal" guest chambers, named after a Tsarina of the Third Bulgarian Kingdom. Each chamber has memorabilia from the lives of the Tsarinas after whom the chamber is called. The King and Queen spent their stay in the Grand Chamber of Tsarina Margarita's namesake, the most prominent of the four guest chambers.

The new hotel offers Bulgaria a unique, one-of-a-kind historical experience with unparalleled service for Bulgarian and international guests. Bey House features a Turkish bath, a gourmet restaurant with a celebrity chef, a garden courtyard, and a bar with a master mixologist.

In a recent interview, Mr. Blagoev, who grew up in Veliko Tarnovo, said: "The idea was born during one of my trips to Morocco. There I stayed in a riad – a traditional wealthy Moroccan mansion, updated with the most modern amenities. This really impressed me. It was one of the most unique hotels I have ever stayed at. This led me to think I could do something similar in my hometown of Veliko Tarnovo. Its history is so rich and varied that I wanted to preserve it." Less than a year later, in 2018, Mr. Blagoev purchased the historic landmark to restore the old building to its former glory while creating a five-star facility fit for a king.

Exactly four years later, the King arrived.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was the pinnacle of years of planning and development that went into Bey House, which now welcomes guests from all over the globe. The mission of Bey House is to provide five-star experiences while showing visitors the history of the building and the royal families of Bulgaria.
