Recent guest reviews

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.

Second time to Sofia and this hotel, the staff and the restaurant made it one of the most enjoyable trips I have had to this part of the world. The standard room would be classed as a junior suite in the UK, with all the extras. As a lone traveler I was made to feel at ease and am now educated in traditional Bulgarian cuisine and its history. Well done Best Western, I will visit again.

My friend & l were staying in a nearby hotel & tried this hotel's breakfast. It was great - so we visited for the rest of our holiday. They kindly provided me with gluten free bread & GF sweet oat cakes. The lady in charge of the restaurant & the waiters were friendly & helpful too. Well worth a visit if you want a good breakfast! Thank you.

It's centrally located, at equidistant position between Serdika and Opalchenska Metro stations. Youngish staff who spoke good English. The reception were efficient in booking tours, selecting better priced companies. The room was very clean, housekeeping was always on time. Breakfast, which was a big buffet of hot and cold choices, was excellent. There were even veggies and smoked fish. Brew your own coffee, and fresh fruit selections. Wifi is included. Exercise room and sauna. Very reasonably priced.

This hotel was clean and well equipped. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was plenty big enough and there was plenty of hot water. The shower was powerful and cleaning of our room was well completed daily. This hotel is a short walk to the centre. Breakfast was good with a variety of foods from cereals to bacon and eggs. If I had to find any fault it would be true to say that the rooms were a little dark but this was purely because the hotel stood in the shadow of other building close by.

I stayed in Bristol with my daughter for 3 nights. First thing first, the bathroom/ WC of my room was dirty. Not the sight to see on check in. On check in, I was told the hotel staff are off so no room service and no functioning restaurant in the hotel. So when i called in for dirty pot, the reaction from the desk was so not such a big deal thing and says she will try to get someone to clean it in sometime. Guess that just ruined it for me. The breakfast was below average. The location is good as many eating places.

Enjoyed our brief stay here...good location only ten minute easy walk to shops bars restaurants and was nice and clean...good size modern ensuite...plenty of choice for breakfast...ticked all the boxes for a weekend in Sofia for a great price.

A Great place to stay with easy access to the city center. Near by good restaurant and easy access transport all city. Room very clean and spacious. Service reception is nice and restaurant. Conclusion I highly recommend the hotel and will definitely tray to stay here if I get to sofia in the future. Big thank special to Pettya and Boyko both ver nice and very good in her job. I was so grateful that were there every Mornig . 4 ⭐ hotel . 5 ⭐ for Pettya and Boyko .
