The hotel has great public areas well decorated. Not near to the downtown but the train number 7 runs well to the National palace of culture. My room was spacious but in awful condition - spotted carpet, broken chair, out of fashion bathroom, small TV set, no hangers in the wardrobe. Three nights stay without cleaning. The rooms of my...

Ok the room staff don't speak english, but are adorable and teach you bulgarian in 5 minutes. The shower glass wets everything, but it's water, who cares? The breakfast has some stiff sausages. But the rest is so good it does not lose a star over that. I like the place all three times I have been there.

The rooms were big but not so clean, the carpets were not clean at all and with black dots on it., and ready to be changed. The toalet was ok. No mini bar. The receptions was very friendly. The car in the lobby was very nice. Breakfast was ok.

Good location next to the mountains and really close to the city ring. New neighbourhood with a shopping mall in vicinity. The rooms are spacious, warm and clean. The furniture is not so new, but is okay. Big bed and nice pillows. Breakfast - nothing special.

Nice hotel, good breakfest, New Shisha lounge was quite good but a little expensive drinks, Room to warm. For me, the hotel is cited directtly nearby my work location, that is very nicely. But for visit of Sofia, the hotel is a little bit too much outside the city.

Where shopping, eating is availible. A lot of shops and restaurants to choose. But while choosing the taxi you must check the fees. Some are expensive....
