Lovely staff, good breakfast and wifi signalPosted Jul 6, 2014
Location: Very central even though there are bigger, fancier places nearby.
The staff are really lovely and they provide a good spread for the breakfast buffet, and a good wifi connection. It is a little under-maintained, but clean enough. But because it was summer, either the windows needed to be open at night or the air con needs to be on. Unfortunately it can be pretty noisy with the windows open, but then there was a kind of unpleasant smell coming via the air conditioning. My stay was pretty last minute as I'd discovered some friends would be in Sofia whilst I was visiting Europe. They had booked into the Grand Hotel Sofia (there were no other vacancies at the time) which is a huge contrast with Hotel Maria Luisa and does end up meaning HML reflects poorly! However, if you're looking for a safe place to sleep and don't mind some night noise the HML is a good choice.

Very old furniture, outdated hotel...Posted Jun 29, 2014
Over all the hotel is nice.... Furniture and building needs fine major updating. The staff is friendly and there is a great breakfast spread. It's on the opposit side of vitosha street and need to take the underpass to get to the action... It can be a little scary at nights.

Toilet absolutely stunk and curtains too smallPosted Nov 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
Toilet absolutely stunk and curtains too small to cover the whole window. We checked out a night early.

Hidden GemPosted Oct 26, 2013
Yes, folks - all the positive reviews are true! This is a wonderful retro-style centrally-located city hotel - a mere 10 min walk from Sheraton. Small, exquisite and hidden - like a well-kept Sofia secret. Will definitely return!

Nice hotel in the centre of Sofia.Posted Sep 30, 2013
The Maria Luisa hotel is located at the City center end of Maria Luisa Bld i.e. a prime location. The hotel room, staff etc were perfectly ok. The window was frosted over in my room and I had to turn the light on during the day time which made an otherwise ok room feel a bit like prison.

Good hotelPosted Jun 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was good, friendly and helpful staff and the service was good. I'm not sure about the 4* status. A bit of renovation will help. Not having a window to open isn't pleasant if you like fresh air and don't like air conditioned air. Overall it's not a bad hotel but considering the Sheraton was £40 more for the two nights without the breakfast maybe I should have went with that.
