Rating - good i.e. 3 and a half stars not 3! If you arrive and leave by cab, you'll never see this and it did colour my vision but as I left the main boulevard and walked down the street to Hotel Favorit, past an open derelict house with a bed on it, I wondered what I'd done. Inside, however,... More

Everything about the hotel was lovely. The room was surprisingly huge, very clean and modern. We were worried about a few reviews that said it was noisy outside, but we had no issues. The location was very handy for getting into the city centre. Highly recommended.

Good location and friendly staff. Clean and tidy rooms. The Deluxe room with balcony is really nice! The price and quality match pretty well. We were here for a romantic trip, and our expectations were well satisfied!

The Favorit is just a ten minute walk from the central bus and train stations and ten minutes from Lavov most (Lions bridge). It is one block off the main street, so noise was no problem. The staff was very efficient on arrival and at departure. The rooms are all modern with very nice baths. The room was very quiet,... More

Perfect service, you felt like a king. :) Excellent spacious rooms. Very good dinner and very good breakfast. The personnell was very keen on helping you with everything regarding Sofia. Though it is located centrally, near the railway station, it is still a bit of a walk to the main attractions.

I booked this because the suite was the same price as a double room at the Ramada and because of other reviews. The team are very friendly, breakfast and check-outs are at a reasonable hour and it's only about 20 mins walk to the centre. The area is OK.
