I stayed in the hotel for a night. Its good location to the centre and close to local hospitals. I was positively surprised of how clean the rooms were. The bed was comfortable and heating was working perfectly fine. Staff were really nice and attentive. The hotel has a parking BUT you have to pay for it, which I think...

It snowed... and snowed... and snowed. So much in fact that over 18" fell in the space of a few hours. But the hotel was a fine place to end up in. The staff were fantastically helpful and attentive; the room a bit on the small side but the bed was very, very comfortable. The hotel is on the number...

Very basis hotel, which despite some reports is not in central Sofia. Rooms are basic and clean. Very small shower cubicle. Clean and warm but I don't think I can add too much else. Breakfast was average. Service was average. I found myself frequently having to seek out staff. They were polite when asked for something but it seemed like...

For a short conference the hotel offers all you need. Simple rooms, basic breakfast and a shortage of good coffee. Beds are a bit small and soft. Also a bit out of the center so you need a taxi to get around. The Billa market next door has a good coffee shop and also good wine selection, much better priced...

This business-class hotel is handily placed on the outskirts of the city to the south-west. Being right next to a tram route it is a short ride into the city for all the attractions there. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable with friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast offers something for all tastes whilst the restaurant provides an acceptable evening...

Although the food is excellent in the hotel we chose to dine out on two occasions .sorry can't name the restaurants but both are short walks from...

This is the third time I visit this hotel in the last two years. This time the room was rather small. Next time i will go for the next level of room as the difference is small. The location of the hotel suits me a lot as: 1. Near by there is a Billa (SuperMarket with hot food) 2. Near...

The suite was big, clean and comfy. The breakfast was good. The restaurant was good and very cheap. The price was excellent! There was no hot water in the night. The hotel is a half an hour away from the city central by foot (2,5km).
