Recent guest reviews

We really enjoyed our stay here. We had our parents in their 70’s, ourselves in our 50’s and one of our children and we all LOVED this hotel. The rooms were spacious, the beds were the most comfortable we’ve ever stayed in but the rooms were so soundproofed that you couldn’t hear any traffic or the lift. We had superb nights sleep here. On a down side the hotel bar was closed for two of the late nights we were here but we would highly recommend the hotel and its location

I stayed here recently for 3 nights in October. I really enjoyed my stay. The room was really spacious, clean, had everything I needed (apart from maybe tea/coffee making!) and the location of the hotel is great- very central and opposite the Palace of culture. The hotel staff were all really helpful and friendly. I have to say, it was the quietest hotel I have possibly ever stayed in which amazed me considering the location! I was on the fifth floor. The WiFi was good. There are a lot of renovations at the palace opposite at the moment which is a shame but that’s not the hotel’s fault. I didn’t give it 5 stars because the hotel breakfast standard let it down a little, and the bar wasn’t great. Could do with tea & coffee in rooms & the beds were a little old. However, I would *definitely* stay here again. Thank you!

Hotel is about 20 minutes by taxi from the airport for about 15 Lev. Otherwise you can get the free shuttle bus (every 30 minutes) from terminal 1 to terminal 2 to travel by metro to NDK station. Hotel is central, so walking distance, to most places to visit. Booked with Expedia so got a room upgrade although I don't think there is much difference between the classic room and the deluxe room. My room was on the 2nd floor with a view of the main road, but there wasn't any street noise really. The room was a spacious with a queen size bed, but it was very low to the gound and the duvet was smaller than the size of the bed. Nice bathroom with a powerful shower over the bath. All very clean. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room but the hotel management advised that they are reviewing. There was a function at the hotel on one of the evenings and being on the 2nd floor it was quite loud and kept me awake until the function ended. My friend who was on the 5th floor was not disturbed by this noise. All staff were polite and helpful.

Stayed here for 7 nights. My room was large, on the 9th floor overlooking National Palace of Culture (NDK) and practically half of Sofia. I was upgraded from a regular room for free. The room featured a very nice bathroom. There is air conditioning, but you also have the option to open the window for some fresh Vitosha mountain air. There is no pool or gym, but I didn't care for those features anyway. The staff is exceptionally friendly. The price is very reasonable for a hotel with such location and quality. Breakfast is extra so I had it only once. Abundant amount of food at a buffet featuring something for everybody. In my effort to try everything I walked out of there more than stuffed. Most of the time I picked up bresh-baked Bulgarian pastry (banitsa) from a small store just around the corner. I got good capuccino there too since the hotel does not offer any free coffee. One negative - the WiFi. It seemed like both of my phones will show "connected", yet I could not go to some sites. Sometimes there was no connection...period. I brought this to the reception staff and they promised to look into it. Overall I am very satisfied with my stay in this hotel and will definitely stay here again.

Had the pleasure to stay in CPH again in August Wouldnt even think of staying elsewhere as all the staff knows how to treat the guest and not least remember the wishes of a frequent visitor Full service from A to Z and even to Å

We have a pleasant two night stay at the hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were pleased with the attention of every one on the staff. The room was excellent and the restaurant as well. We hope to make this visit annually.

We stayed in one of the upper level panorama suites in late June. The views of Vitosha and Sofia were spectacular. You can see the sparkling domes of the Nevski cathedral in the distance. The room was modern and well appointed, with a giant bathroom and separate bedroom. The location is ideal for walking to most tourist destinations or hopping on the subway. We also enjoyed the restaurant and the accommodating service of the front desk staff and Zdravko. Next time I am in Sofia, I'll be staying here again.

Stayed her for 3 nights the hotel is clean, modern and the rooms are good size and have great air con which is an absolute must in Sofia. The location could not be any better next to the park and a few minutes walk to the pedestrian area of Vitosha Boulevard. Sofia is not as popular as some of the other Eastern European city breaks such as Prague and Budapest but holds it own with numerous attractions. We visited the Nevski and Russian churches , the Archaeological museum, the Socialist Art museum which was a couple of stops on the Metro from the centre at a grand cost of 80p for a single journey. We did not get to see everything with only two full days so will return and definitely stay in this hotel. For anyone travelling with children the Vitosha Boulevard is crammed with bars and restaurants and many locals are out with their children which makes for a very good friendly atmosphere. There is also a bowling alley five minutes walk from the hotel if the weather is bad at 4 Levs per game (£2). All in all we were impressed with Sofia and would recommend a 4 night stay to be able to to see all the attractions and this hotel is an excellent base.

The hotel is ok! For the price is good!! The advantage of this hotel is its location, because it is near to center!! The breakfast was disappointing and average!! The employees are very polite ,but the majority can't speak English so the communication is a little bit difficult!! The rooms are ok and clean! And the last complaint is that the reception gave to my family rooms in different floors(4 and 8 floor)!! I understand that it was full booked (as they told us) but we think that you could do something better!!

We spent a long time deciding which hotel to book in Sofia. We finally decided upon central because of reviews on trip advisor. I think that my expectations may have been heightened due to the reviews which I had read. The hotel is in a good location however the metro is great in Sofia so you could stay in many areas and probably get around using it. The pedestrian streets are within walking distance which was helpful. The room itself was clean and served its purpose of giving us somewhere to sleep. It's not a hotel room I would want to spend anymore time in. Our bed although a double came with two single covers which was unusual. The air conditioning was quite poor and never really cooled the room. The bathroom was huge and clean - the shower overflowed the water would not drain quick enough. All in all the staff were very helpful and spoke good English and the hotel room was clean and pleasant. The hotel was not our usual taste and we do prefer a more modern finish. If you're looking for somewhere central this hotel is perfect. However if you don't mind location perhaps other hotels within the same price range are better.
