First of all I would like to point out the manager - a lovely young lady that cares about the hotel and it's costumers. As we arrived early in the morning after an overnight trip we didn't have a smiling welcoming from the overnight receptionist. The manager arrived a few hours later and changed our opinion about the place. Service was overall good and staff is usualy polite. Rooms were clean and standard-nothing special. Enough for a couple traveling. Location is great only 7 minute walk from vitosha street and there is a good casino 2 minutes walk from the hotel. Breakfast was ok in european standarts and was the same every day(ok for europe).

Very enjoyable stay. Very clean room with lovely bathroom with walk-in shower. Good choice for breakfast of hot and cold food. Tea and coffee also in bedroom. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Good hotel at short walking distance from Vitosha boulevard. Bathroom clean, room quite clean, very large and confortable double bed. Continental breakfast was very good and rich. One day cleaning staff knocked at out door soon after breakfast to make cleanings. We had to hurry up (with a baby is quite difficult) and we found them (4 women) waiting disappointed outside our room. It was not our check out day, not it was midday, it was only 10.30!

Pleasant nice quiet hotel What we really need with nice breakfast and convenient with all luxury at the highest friendly staff that speak english 24 hour reception free wifi everywhere' we were lucky since it was snowing

Spent one night here on a business trip. The room smelled bad, sheets had small stains and I could hear the elevator all night as the walls are very thin. Great variety for breakfast. Staff was ok. WiFi working very well.

Staff very friendly and the hotel is located just 15 minutes from Nedalya cathedral, which is in front of Vitoschav boulevard, which has a long pedestrian passage, the centre of shopping. The rooms are upgraded, according how much you are going to pay. There are shops around the hotel, and restaurants, but not of standard as in Vitoscha bould. The hotel can arrange you tours and taxes

Stayed here for 4 nights in our first visit to Sofia. Room 101 was spacious and clean with comfortable bed and good sized television.Bathroom was modern only small niggle was it was a wet room floor with shower curtain with brilliant power shower however the floor flooded nearly to the bathroom door after having a shower. Wifi was really good and we had no problem with it. Mini bar was a bit over priced but it’s your choice as there are enough little kiosk shops nearby if you want to purchase snacks. All staff were lovely and reception staff were very informative and helpful.Food in the restaurant at night was good and we tried some of the Bulgarian specials which were very reasonably priced. Breakfast had a big choice and didn’t seem to run out whatever time you went down. Some say the area was not so pleasant but we went wandering and found a few local bars and restaurants within walking distance. There is a lovely little Turkish bar right across the road. As in any city just take the usual precautions with wallets and bags.Don’t be scared to step out your comfort zone, venture out and explore, embrace the different cultures and enjoy. One thing you must do is take the sightseeing tour. It takes an hour costs 10 leva each bottle of water or glass of wine included in the price and was so informative we learned so much about the city. All in all I wouldn’t hesitate staying here if we came back to Sofia.

Pros: • The reception has extremely talented bunch of staffs that deal tourists of all nationalities/languages with ease. • Wake up call, Taxi bookings all can be done through the reception. • Rooms/Bathrooms are spacious, clean with comfortable beds/pillows; the bathroom suits cleaning habits of European and Asian. Wifi is super speed. • House keeping in good. • Mini bar, Dress closets, TV set with reasonable number of channels, hair dryer etc available in my room. However, my bathroom did not have a bathtub. • They do have sauna, steam bath in the basement of hotel. • Few good quality restaurants nearby, even the inhouse restaurant at the hotel is good and reasonable. • Breakfast is amazing, lots of variety and options; The manager of the in house restaurant is compassionate and courteous. • The hotel is a walking distance to the ancient Serdika and 600m from the nearest metro. • My room was on the sixth floor, facing front and had a great view of the city, although there was no balcony. • Extremely value for money. Cons: Nil Approach to and from hotel: Two easy options from Airport; (1) Purchase a bus ticket from the airport counters, which charges 6 Leva (3 Euro) for a bus/van upto the Hotel; (2) Take a taxi which charges nearly 14 leva (7 Euro). For onward journey to hotel i took the Van/Bus and for return journey back to airport i took a taxi. Both were comfortable, however the taxi has the edge of comfort/privacy over the bus. Travel Advice: • Friends there should never be any second thoughts for booking this hotel, its premium service, convenient location and value for money; Just go for it and enjoy your stay at Sofia. • Beware of taxis that are painted yellow. I was conned twice by asking me to pay 60 Leva (30 Euro) for a 4 km travel; their meter reading will show this hefty amount and the driver will urge you to pay. Since i had read the travel diaries on such episodes, fought back with these culprits and gave them the money only what they deserved (nearly 4 leva). Always book through your app or ask the hotel reception

The hotel’s staff is very nice, helpful and welcoming. The location is more than amazing. Breakfast is great (there’s a lot of different food for everyone’s taste). The rooms are pretty and cozy. We had a great vacation thanks to the hotel.

Hotel is clean but has an old style. A bit strange to my taste. Room is qute small and dark interior design. At least mine. Staff is friendly and breakfast decent. But not all lights work in my room. Fridge makes some weird as well. If i was to come to sofia again id probabily not stay here. But now for 3 nights is fine. Close to some food places and my work so is ok.
