In the center of everything

Posted Jun 18, 2014
Pros: Large, comfortable room. I needed some laundry to be done. They had it done within four hours: total shock. I was expecting it the next day.
Cons: The facility is, like all of us, slowly aging. But on the whole, quite nice.
I only had two whole days in Sofia, so I wanted a place in the center of everything. This place was ideal.

Found Sofia to be a very pleasant surprise and the hotel the icing on the cake. Very good spa and a delicious varied breakfast. The staff were great - hospitable, professional and responsive.

Smoke in non smoking room

Posted Feb 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
Have stayed here many times before. As always, the staff was very professional and friendly. We got a room that smelled of smoke but once we contacted the reception it was less than 5 minutes and we were in another room.The rooms are really nice an spacious in this hotel. . In the morning the shuttle for the airport was 10 min late, so they set us up with a limousine instead. Great service and attitude!

Great hotel in great location

Posted Jan 29, 2014
Pros: Large room. Great price. Friendly staff
Cons: Could have done with tea and coffee-making facilities in the room
Location: Near to Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, a nice park, and good shopping streets. not far from some good restaurants and the metro
We stayed here for part of our honeymoon and liked it a lot. It is very corporate as there are lots of conference facilities but it suited our needs perfectly. The superior room was spacious and the bathroom was marble lined and pleasing. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room smelled a bit funny (probably from cleaning products used to rid the room of historical smoke) but understandably that can't really be helped. The only thing we would have liked is tea-making facilities - this would have put the icing on the cake. However, all in all it was excellent and very well placed for the centre of the city

The hotel was great

Posted Nov 30, 2013
I have to apologize about the house keeping comments and I did find the money in one of my pockets, i just hope that they will forgive me. As far the hotel, the hotel was good but didn't like the Bell Boys and security that much, I know they are concerned about the guest safety but telling us is not safe to go out at night kinda ruined by little Holiday and decided to cut my visit short and leave. I loved the city during the day and people are very friendly but somethings are just unfortunate.
