Holiday Inn Sofia

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Superb stay.Five star breakfast. Nice and polite staff. We stayed one night. The only negative was that the room was a liltle bit cold from the very first moment we got in, and the air condition was blowing only cold air.

We are loyalty members at Spire Ambassador status and decided to use some of our free nights to spend in Bulgaria. On the plus side the hotel is very new and very clean. Rooms are a good size and is easily accessed from the tube. However, our stay was not good at all. We were not upgraded ( yes it does say if you are using free nights you will not be) but we have travelled extensively over the past two years and each time we have used loyalty nights we have ALWAYS been upgraded in all the countries we have visited. We asked for decaffeinated coffee in our room which we were told they would send. The NEXT DAY we rang again as none appeared and was told we couldn't have any in the room but we could BUY it in the bar. Also this is the ONLY hotel we have not had complimentary water and fruit. When asked about it we were told all the other hotels provided this but it was not this hotels policy! The final straw was on the Sunday evening when there was a wedding at the hotel and although we were on the 5th floor the music was so loud we could not sleep and it went on until 4 am. The idea of a loyalty scheme is that in return for your patronage you are treated well this was not the case at this hotel. A terrible experience and a waste of valuable points gained.

I had a wonderful 1-nite stay at the Holiday Inn Sofia from 20-21 Sept 2017. I was in a tour group of over 20 persons and we had checked in at about 8 pm. I managed to check the indoor pool facility and found that it was open early in the morning. The staff at the desk was very friendly and helpful and I enjoyed using the pool that morning. The hotel room was very comfortable and spacious and the buffet breakfast was fantastic with a generous spread of food. Overall it was an excellent choice and the pool and spa facilities were superb. Very nice stay.

This hotel is in a business park but the standards are worth being out of the city. Quite honestly the location can be a bit of a relief from the hustle and bustle. Rooms are big, clean and quiet. Breakfast is good and there is a super spa which is exceptionally clean.

We came to the hotel through the Metro - changed train in Mladost 1 , then took the train to the business park. There is a nice park near the hotel with restaurents. The hotel is clean, the rooms are big and satisfying, the receptionists were lovely and always help when you need them. In addition - the hotel took care for gluten free food for my daugher, very much appreciated. We have been 2 times on the swimming pool and on the Jacussi, nice plus for the hotel. We traveled a lot on Metro because the hotel is 400 meters from Metro station. The breakfest was quite good, but boring after 4 times (everything is the same). In conclusion - We recommend this hotel - it was lovely and fun.

This is a purely business hotel. The main advantages are it is situated in the middle of the Sofia business park, near to the metro and airport. Well connected to the city center. The staff are courteous and well behaved, the rooms are clean, and sleep is comfortable. The gym and the swimming pool are good. What not so good, the WiFi, it is pathetic, sometimes connect, sometimes not. The speed sucks. The breakfast is Good, apart form the fact that the same breakfast is served everyday, as I said it is purely business hotel.

The hotel was fabulous with nicely appointed rooms, no room noise/disturbance, welcome air conditioning, fabulous spa and pool all with possibly one of the most exceptional breakfasts we have ever had! 5 mins to metro centre easily accessed. A great stay and we will visit again to your lovely city.

The hotel is conveniently located close to the business park in Sofia, about 30 mins from the Airport. I found the Hotel impeccable concerning cleanliness, service and choice of food. they also have a fitness / pool and a bar for late nights. The personnel is friendly and always ready to help, They have a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with great choices of fish, meat and desserts. You don't need to go elsewhere if you are busy, it's all there. I really recommend it.

Always great friendly and personal service here in Sofia, the colleagues take their time to engage guests and give a personal touch. The pool & spa facilities are good, don't miss the outdoor spa to the rear of the pool in the fenced area!

Spacious and clean rooms. Staff and management provide excellent service !Excellent breakfast Excellent transport to the city center Excellent spa, clean and heated pool Car parking garage !!!We loved the hotel very much
