Grand Hotel Sofia

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is my 3rd stay in this lovely city hotel. Hotel staff is professional and both check-in and check-out were very easy and fast. The hotel has a classic style with various art pieces demonstrated in the lobby area. Rooms are very clean and incredibly spacious especially by European standards. Breakfast buffet is very rich and tasty. We tasted the chef’s wonderful dinner menu in the hotel restaurant and also enjoyed the lovely hotel patisserie facing the park. The Hotel is practically in the middle of the city, almost all main Sofia attractions are within 5-10 minutes walking distance. My only criticism is on a bit noisy air conditioning, but in general I strongly suggest this hotel for both touristic and business of Sofia visits.

Nice nice hotel! Friendly staff and good reservation Service! Great hotel, 24 Hour Service! Location in the Center! Very good breakfast!! Rooms not so modern, carpeted floor, but comfortable, clean, and huge!

The trip and stay was excellent. The staff was really helpful. Though it seemd they already had their hand full with some event, they found time for all the customers. Thw room was clean and nice. I had no issue finding my way around. Thank you.

we found the rooms to be huge, bit old style...but it was okay. Concierge was helpful (one man especially). Tried to take us for 4 breakfasts in stead of 2., so be on tge ball at check out. Breakfast was quiet good and staff very pleasant.

Beautiful hotel with nice rooms, breakfast is very good. Compared to most European cities Sofia is not expensive and quite friendly. Prices in this hotel are reasonable. Staff is helpful and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to any traveller to Sofia.

Great hotel, really classy and well maintained. The stuff was really nice and made us feel welcome. Hotel is located in the center of the center, in walking distance to all the important museums, Nacional Theater, shopping streets and restaurants. It has a lovely garden and perfect jazz bar.

Stayed for 4 nights before Xmas and the hotel has left good impression overall. The exterior and lobby of the hotel is well kept and bars/restaurants are also beautiful (with very nice Xmas decoration). The rooms are huge (really huge :)), with classy furniture though seem a bit dated and dark.. like luxury of 70s :) There were a lot of parties during my stay so I had to move from 2nd floor to the top floors where it was quieter. Thanks a lot to the management and all the staff, they were was extremely helpful during my stay.

Perfectly located in the heart of Sofia, right next to one of the nicest parks in the city, also the central subway station. Large, spotless rooms, very friendly staff and awesome cuisine - would definitely recommend for a perfect hotel experience.

This old state library building was changed to something that resembles old socialist big rooms, dressed in relatively modern 5 star outlook. It looks nice, huge sleeping room, professional staff, but for that price it lacks a bit of.....
