We booked a couple of nights at this hotel. The location is very far from the city and there is nothing to do in this hotel! We went to the room and opened the door and there was a terrible smell in the room! They used some kind of spray to kill this smell in the room but that dident... More

We stayed here a couple of days coming into Bulgaria and another day on the way out. Hotel is rather hard to get to, but our driver knew the way. The big draw seems to be the swimming pool. We didn't swim, but the crowds at the pool were ferocious. Dining was across the way and was very elegant. We... More

Clean hotel, very nicely renovated. The deluxe room is OK, specious, clean - everything working properly. They have a nice outside swimming pool working during the summer. Poor breakfast, but good enough for a three-star hotel. The restaurant is very nice, we stayed in the hotel for a wedding event and the restaurant atmosphere and the food were great. The... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night before our flight, and had very mixed feelings about it. The bad first - this mostly concerned the staff's attitudes. When we arrived late afternoon it was a sunny day, but by the time we unpacked & went down to the pool the sky had darkened. We had a short swim and... More

This hotel may look okay but looks can be deceiving. Had dinner in their restaurant only for 3 in our group to get severe food poisoning from the chicken meal. The ceiling in our room started to leak profusely, however when we told the staff this they were slow to respond and didn't seem to care. We were then moved... More

We ordered this hotel during business trip in Inter expo center - it's only 2km away from it. I do believe my room was ex smokers, no matter it had sticker with non smoking sign, you can smell tobaco in the room. Bit oldfashioned - photo walpaper of flowers. In a room (i ordered single rooms for me and my... More

Stayed twice, once in basic room and once in deluxe. Both were fine, the pool is excellent if you have the time. Reception staff are bored and rude, as you expect in such a place but you dont need them after you check in anyway. Dont touch the breakfast, old bread, juice with mold floating on top and generally very... More

My buddies stayed in this hotel 2 years ago and had good things to say about it. Great rooms, lovely breakfast and pool. I visited along with them this time and had a terrible experience. We came at night, after we booked more than several months ahead. We parked, checked in and received our rooms. My room....the moment I opened... More

We chose to stay at this hotel because of the proximity to the airport - we wanted to catch next day morning flight. If you really need to stay only overnight then it is acceptable choice. But be aware the hotel is in the middle of nowhere, service is average at best and breakfast poor. It seemed to me that... More

This was a nice clean hotel with pool, but a taxi ride from the city. If you're looking to go out in Sofia at night, I would not recommend it. The hotel lobby is inviting with its 'royal family' style furniture. Each of the rooms have a different theme it is decorated in. The pool is a nice place to... More
