Great location, and great product for the price. Would stay here again whenever returning to Sofia. Room was clean and comfortable. Nice rooftop bar, and breakfast was good too. Easy to reach from the airport by subway.

Avoid room 103! It has an internal door which opens onto a balcony over reception. This means that all noise from reception can be heard in the room. One night, they started vacuuming reception at 1:30 am which woke us up. We rang reception to tell them that they were disturbing us and ask them to stop. They did not....

I stayed here a few weeks ago for business - my room was fantastic - very clean, very quiet, very comfortable. The upstairs restaurant was also fantastic for breakfast - service was very friendly and you just felt like you were very welcome. However, the young blonde woman that was the front of the house for the bar area upstairs...

This is one of the most beautiful hotels i have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The rooms are beautiful, well thought and modern. The restaurant/ roof bar is amazing, offers great views of the city and is the place to be seen in Sofia at the weekend. It not the cheapest hotel in the city, i have stayed...

Stayed for one night during a roundabout sojourn to South Africa taking advantage of cheap Qatar and Lufthansa business class fares that intersected in Sofia. The hotel is quite centrally located (and only about 100m from the Radisson Blu, so neither gets a point above the other for convenience). The common areas in the Sense are nicely-decorated and the staff...

Stayed here for 2 nights. Firstly, the good things...the location, rooms, dining area, roof top bar, and spa are all excellent. They have spent the money well on a quality finish. What stops it getting 5 stars is, frustratingly, the easier things. Free Coffee pods are limited to one a day per person in the room...if you want more then...

As a contrast to say the humongous, stodgy Balkan Hotel of former communist repute, this place comes across as the new, hip representation of a modern Bulgaria. It is a design hotel of the very first class, impressing the first time visitor with its architecture, interior decorating and overall smart set-up. The restaurant's design on the ground floor as well...

Quite ok, would have liked breakfast and coffee or reven water before 7 a.m. Not possible. Otherwise, room nice, food above average. Service a bit too "buddy-style". Still, would recommend it, it is above average compared to the other hotels.

Little out of place from all the action, but very close to the cathedral. Overall a very nice hotel, furniture tends to be spartan. Breakfast was nice on the top floor but quite expensive on local standard.
