I booked a 2 night stay in this hotel back in October 2013 for my return flight to London, on the 17th December 2013. I was arriving on the morning of the 15th (Sunday) at 06:30 and being disabled and needing regular rest asked could a room be made available to me at that hour? I was told this could... More

The Hotel is in the Center of Sofia.Very close to everything you need. The staff is very friendly and they was helping us for anything we need. Rooms are small, but clean, there was washed sheets and blankets. There is a TV in the room with 2 programs:) Not very good for sleeping because it is on main street, and... More

I had to stay in this hotel for a week but each day there was a torture - imagine a hotel without an elevator, and I had to climb the stairs at least twice a day. Do not remember the room I had but it was not something good. Breakfat was served from the adjoining restaurant. It was quite bad,... More

I arrived very early to hotel and receptionist told me that I couldn’t check-in until 2 pm. That is normal but I thought they could arrange a room but at least there was a luggage room where I left my bag. The room was mediocre in cleanliness and amenities. It was basically decorated and small. The bathroom was looking clean... More

The hotel was near of all the atractions and Serdica subway station was 5 minutes walking. The double bed was very big! There was a coffee machine next to the stairs which was very cheap and good. The only problem is that the wifi didn't work at the rooms, you have to go out to the corridor to have signal.... More

I rated this hotel such excellent because it satisfy the all of my basic needs for sleeping one night.The location is perfect and here can you accommodate if you are willing to learn the most famous tourist attractions of Sofia. Right in front of hotel buses and metro are passing by , so the transport would not have been a... More

Hotel is cheap, quality is good for the money we paid, location is amazing (the hotel is situated at the very centre of Sofia and all the landmarks are at walking distance!), staff is welcoming and helpful, the only negative is that the rooms are not cleaned daily. I would definitely recommend for a short stay or a sleepover on... More

I stayed in Alabin Hotel in april 2012 for 2 nights with my friend. Hotel is very well located – 4 minutes to Serdika metro station, and about 15 minutes to Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Room was relatively clean, towels changed every day. There was small fridge with mini bar (beer, wine, chocolate bars - affordable prices), TV with a few... More

The Alabin central is very well located in central Sofia and offers very good value for groups of friends who are looking for somewhere a cut above a hostel to crash. The availability of a triple room was our main reason for staying. Recption is small and functional, which is fine. Room was a decent size with a reasonably priced... More
