The hotel isn't anything special. The location is close to major sites but not really that close. The room is adequate but not fancy. We had a corner room but it still felt small and dark and had a funky smell; the small Juliette balcony was too small to even stand on. The breakfast was decent but nothing special. I'm... More

The hotel is located in the city centre of Sofia which makes it quite convenient for visitors to walk around the city. You can find plenty of restaurants close to the hotel for lunch & dinner.The price for a night stay was quite reasonable. The rooms are clean & tidy. Wi-fi is free and works pretty well. One drawback for... More

Bang in the central area of Sofia. Sightseeing is a breeze from this hotel, you can very well walk to all the sightseeing points in Sofia. The hotel is a small property, rooms extremely small, barely there is place to keep your luggage, let alone room for walking, the bathroom is even smaller, there is literally no turning place inside....

I spent 3 days in Best Western Plus City Hotel in Sofia. Generally just to have a place for sleeping the hotel is fine. However definitely, 4 stars is too much for this hotel. Don't know how they get the 4th star? Breakfast is really not interesting at all. It's good that most of the time I needed to spend... More
