Buon hotel

Posted Sep 19, 2016
Ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo . Unica pecca la colazione servita nel bar adiacente all hotel davvero pessima ! Alle 8 del mattino avevano già finito parte dei menù proposti e la qualità dei prodotti era comunque infima . Meglio fare la colazione in uno dei tanti bar di Sofia

Overall this was a good hotel. Good location. Fairly clean rooms but they needed updating. The staff was helpful when pushed to be. One thing is that the non-smoking rooms obviously had been smoking rooms in previous years, but then again you are in Bulgaria and smoke is everywhere anyways so it should not be too bothersome for many guests.

Nice hotel close to city centre

Posted Jul 11, 2016
Pros: friendly staff, nice location, spacious, great views
Cons: For breakfast, only tea and coffee was offered as part of inclusive breakfast. Could do with fruit juices.
Location: very central. walking distance from great city landmarks and eating places.
very enjoyable time at the Hotel Lion. great view, friendly staff, central location, walking distance from beautiful historic buildings and lovely boulevards. 10 minutes by taxi from airport.

It is a basic hotel

Posted Jul 5, 2016
I stayed there 4days.the hotel is located centrally walking distance to tourist area and central bus station.However,it is surrounded with gypsy who wondering around that area and also a lot of refugees asking for money. The area walked to the tourist area is dark,it is ok if you used metro and in summer time.i will not recommend you to stay here during winter time. The breakfast portion is small(didn't provide water,juices,fruits). Air-condition is working just air/wind not cold enough especially during this hot summer! Maybe you can stay at other Hotels.I stayed at this hotel due to high rating 8.5/10 but I don't think It should get this high score with the quality of services provided.it is really just normal/basic hotel.

Localización cómoda. Servicios mejorables.

Posted Jun 27, 2016 on Hotels
Puntos positivos: · La localización del hotel es inmejorable. A 10 minutos a pie del centro y delante de una boca de metro. · El tamaño de la habitación. · Relación calidad / precio aceptable. Puntos negativos: · La zona por la noche. · Así como el baño está impecable, la limpieza del resto de la habitación deja algo que desear. Las cortinas mejor ni rozarlas, parecen marrones pero en realidad son blancas. Así con la moqueta, los armarios... · Ponen pocas toallas y no cambian la ropa de cama. · El desayuno es escaso y de calidad justita. · El personal es poco resolutivo · El servicio de transfer del hotel es carísimo para los precios búlgaros. Conclusión: Hay mejores hoteles a precios similares, sin duda. Aunque si acabas cayendo en Hotel Lion tampoco morirás de la experiencia. Es aceptable y cómodo para un viaje ligero.

Hyvällä paikalla oleva hotelli, mutta huone tosi tunkkainen

We enjoyed our stay, hogel in good location, room was nice, large, balcony, fridge, english channel. The drain in bathroom smelt bad though, we had our window open all the time. The free breakfast, was horrible,the eggs and bacon were not cooked properly, we couldn't eat them at all. The price of room was great

 お得感が大きい。色々な割引で30ユーロを切っていたのに、三つ星相応のサービスをきちんと受けられた。  そして、場所が素晴らしい。地下鉄駅の真上でアクセスが良く、午後8時に空港に着いた初日は午後9時半すぎには就寝できた。  ホテルから中心部セルデカ、反対方向の中央駅、中央バスステーションまでは、いずれも地下鉄1駅で、歩いても10分ほど。  建物は古いが、部屋は割と綺麗。大きな交差点に面し、眺めも良い。  1階のカフェ兼レストランは一日中なかなか賑わっていて、料金込みの朝食こそ簡素だが、夕食は意外としっかりしていた。マスのグリル、リゾット、ブロッコリーのスープを注文したら、うまかった。隣にKFCとダンキンドーナツあり。  大きな問題点はないが、部屋の机に、担当メイドの名前入り封筒が置いてあり、チップの催促みたいで鬱陶しかった。クリーニングも割高で、使う気にならない。セルデカの交差点近くにクリーニング店があるので、そこを利用するといい。グーグルマップで検索可能。あと、エレベーターが遅い。ついでに、都心のシティホテルなんだから、朝食7:30は遅い。
