Akzeptables Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis

Posted Oct 15, 2016
Location: direkt im Zentrum, man kann erstmal in die Markthalle und lecker bulgarisches Ofengemüse essen sowie leckeres Grillfleisch.
Top-Lage, trotzdem sehr ruhig. Unser Zimmer war extrem dunkel, das Himmelbett unheimlich, die Hotelbar sehr gut bestückt. Der Frühstücksraum im Keller ist wenig einladend, das Buffet allerdings ok. Es gibt sogar frische Früchte!

Suositeltava hotelli keskustassa.

Posted Aug 29, 2016
Pros: Siisti sviitti keskustahotellissa länsieurooppalaisen ankean ahtaan kopin hinnalla.
Cons: Ravintola ja kahvila - niiden käyttöaste näytti kovin alhaiselta.
Location: Serdika (Сердика) metroasema lähellä, samoin kauppakatu ulitsa Pirotska ja kauppahalli Tsentralni hali (Централни хали) nurkalla ja monet nähtävyydet
Hotelli lähellä keskustaa ja metroasemaa. Siisti kokonaisuus ja palvelualtista henkilökuntaa aina paikalla. Aamiainen oli hyvä, joskin aamiaishuone/ravintola kellarissa. Huoneemme oli pihalle päin ja myös yöllä tosi hiljainen.

Very nice hotel close to the city centre.

Posted Jul 18, 2016
Pros: The staff are extremely pleasant. The location.
Location: Shopping, restaurants, bars are all nearby.
This small hotel is ideally situated for walking in and out of the city centre. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The budget rooms are very small and I would recommend the higher rated rooms since they come at very little extra cost. Breakfast is adequate but not lavish. I prefer this since I've seen a lot of waste in hotels with buffet style meals.

Avoid staying here

Posted Jul 11, 2016 on Hotels
Extremely uncomfortable stay. Rooms are very small. The air conditioning does not cool. It was extremely hot and stuffy at night. An extremely small portion of buffet breakfast is laid out every morning. The staff don't replenish any food once it finishes. Same with housekeeping, the soaps, tea/coffee is not replenished. It is definitely not a four star quality

Centralt beliggende hotel - værelse uden vindue

Posted Jul 1, 2016 on Hotels
Hotellet samlet set er helt fint og der er god service. Morgenmaden er fin nok , men ikke ophidsende. F.eks. er der ikke frisk frugt. Det er svært at forstå, at man kan slippe af sted med at tilbyde et rum helt uden vindue og dermed dagslys. Det var som en indvendig kahyt på et krydstogtskib. Rummet var fint nok - det havde bare ikke noget vindue.

Almost wonderful, except for sleeping

Posted Jun 24, 2016
Pros: Very pleasing interior decor, very attentive staff. Excellent location (100m or so from the central "Cerdika" metro station). Good breakfast.
Cons: Proper--opaque--window coverings. Fix the noisy machinery. Improve bed linen. Respond promptly to maintenance requests.
Location: Everything that central Sofia has to offer!
The general structure and decor of the Maria Luisa gives a solid impression of traditional elegance, even opulence. High ceilings (probably about 16~18 feet) and paintwork that's both new and detailed (thoughtfully coordinated tones, with accent colors on the extensive trimwork such as the crown moldings) all give the feeling of a solid four-star London hotel. Unfortunately, the thing that let this down quite badly for me, was a lack of attention to some particular details. 1) There was no actual window covering capable of blocking light, just a thin sheer. This was a huge problem for me, there was a bright light outside my window, and with a nine-hour jetlag, it was very hard to get any sleep. 2) There was some kind of machinery; maybe a fan, or perhaps water pumping/heating, which made a very loud, and continuous noise. 3) The bed linen wasn't really big enough for the bed; that is, it didn't tuck under very well, so tended to come un-made and wrinkled. The pillows were rather poor quality and felt rather lumpy, making it hard to get perfectly comfortable. 4) The main light in the room was a two-strip fluorescent, and one of the strips flickered. My request to have this fixed went unheeded, though the bulb eventually quit completely. 5) I suspect the plumbing is old iron pipes. The water each morning was distinctly brown (like weak tea). Let it run for a couple of minutes, and it was clear. But it tasted fine, and I didn't get sick! Perhaps it's spring water?

albergo in ottima posizione per le visite a Sofia

Posted Jun 22, 2016
Pros: Ottime colazione, e ottima disponibilità di gran parte del personale.
Cons: Considerata la posizione e la struttura dell'edificio ritengo impossibile migliorare l'abitabilità delle camere. Per il resto è ad un ottimo livello.
Location: ottima posizione rispetto ai siti d'interesse, trasporti pubblici numerosi e vicini, prossimità ad un mercato coperto ricco di offerte alimentari.
Serio problema iniziale per assegnazione di una camera con finestra danneggiata, rivolta ad un muro contiguo che toglie totalmente la luce esterna, impossibile da accettare per un soggiorno di cinque notti. Dopo grandi insistenze otteniamo un'altra camera ad un piano più alto, con finestra luminosa. Camere confortevoli ma piccole, con pochissimo spazio per bagagli e per custodire indumenti.

Een prima hotel, vlakbij het centrum.

Posted Jun 21, 2016
Pros: de centrale ligging
Cons: Er was een lift, maar daar moest je een trapje zonder trapleuningen op van 5 treden. Lijkt me niet handig voor mensen die slecht ter been zijn.
Location: Het ligt naast de centrale markthal, ook handig voor een taxi chauffeur die het niet kan vinden! Daarachter ligt een heel goedkoop en leuk terras.
Het hotel is, in onze ogen wat ouderwets ingericht, maar alles werkt, en het is schoon en netjes. Het personeel is vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Goed ontbijt. Er was een airco, wat heerlijk was bij 36 graden. Het is maar een stukje lopen naar terrasjes, restaurantjes, en de bezienswaardigheden van Sofia.
