In July, the international internship of the Italian alumni of HRC Academy, who were part of the team of Hotel Marinela Sofia and had the opportunity to gather impressions and learn from exceptional professionals offering 5-star service for three weeks.
We present you Giacomo Luca – one of the boys who completed his practice, who shared his impressions of the Marinela Sofia Hotel and his first stay in Bulgaria.
What’s your name?
My name is Giacomo Luca, but for friends Gianluca.
How old are you?
Where are you from?
Naples, which is one of the most beautiful Italian cities.
Have you been to Bulgaria before? Did you like it here?
No, I’ve never been lucky enough to visit Bulgaria. This is a great place, the thing I like the most is its natural beauty.
What did you expect to gain from this internship? Did you win it?
I expected to increase my professionalism and general culture and discover a reality I had never seen before. I probably worked in the best hotel in Bulgaria, so yes.
Did you learn something new?
Of course, I learned a lot of new things, thanks to all Marinela employees.
What can you tell us about the Bulgarian client?
Bulgarian clients in Marinela are much more demanding because they pay to get the best. Still, they are very patient when they notice that you are an intern and often give tips!
What is your opinion about Hotel Marinela? Would you come back again?
Hotel Marinela is probably the best hotel I have seen in my life, not only because of the magnificent work of art by Kisho Kurokawa, but also because of the exceptional professionalism of the staff, truly 5-star. As a client, I would definitely visit again, but above all as an employee, because this is a beautiful work environment.
Tell us about a fun or challenging situation at work and how to deal with it?
Probably when Miss Angelova asked me to do this interview… I was walking quietly with my friend in the hallway, and suddenly she appeared and told us: “Would you answer a few questions about your stay here?” I was ashamed. I haven’t given an interview yet!What did you do in Bulgaria when you were not at work? During the holidays, I visited the fantastic city of Sofia, and I also went to Plovdiv and the Rila Monastery. One of the most beautiful experiences was the bike tour in the vast park of Sofia.
What did you do in your free time?
I went shopping with my friends on Vitosha street or in Paradise Mall when I had free time. I also went to the gym or ran.
Did you like your stay here?
It was a great month. I never imagined that Bulgaria is a place with a rich history and culture, and people are amicable and hospitable. I had the opportunity to work in a beautiful place, so I have only one word to say. Thanks.
