The hotel is situated within walking distance from the city centre, in fact we rarely took taxis to visit all the sights in Sofia. It's not exactly a four star hotel and has seen better days, it's a little roccoco but it's clean, the buffet breakfast is decent and the staff very friendly. We didn't notice the nightclub nearby and...

Spent a long night here as there was a very noisy nightclub attached to the Hotel and the boo boom music if you could call it that went on until after 5am. Room was clean but bed not comfortable. Breakfast was okay.

Even located very close to city center, is a quiet hotel (during the weekdays - in we might be noisy because of a club at the ground floor of the hotel), more like a boutique hotel.

Stayed here in 2014 for a stag weekend. Very basic. Only problem is that there is a strip club in the basement which doubles up as a brothel as the strippers take paying punters back to their rooms for other services. Mainly for locals only as the bulgarians are not to keen on the English.

The hotel is in a good location. The service is friendly and professional. This is a budget hotel but not a 4 star hotel! I give 3 stars for the location and the prices, but for the rest just 1 star and zero for the bathroom!
