Not entirely sure how much detail I need to go into here. The pool was lovely, so was the gym. Breakfast was great, service throughout was great. Strip club on the top floor was also a pretty good standard considering it seemed permanently empty... Casino downstairs was also great fun. Sofia is lovely but I wouldn't bring family there.

We stayed there for 1 night. Well, you get what you pay for. We had the cheapest room available and the only positive was, that the room was clean. However I checked and they have really expensive and better rooms. For us it was fine, because on the next day we had flights so not really a problem. The good... More

This hotel is from another time but it is cheap, clean and gives you possibilities for lots of fun. I would recommend! It is less then half an hour of walking from the center and they have an early but rich breakfast every day! The staff is nice.

The hotel is in a very good location very close to the center of Sofia. Rooms are normal and clean. They changed towel every day. Breakfast was very good and the coffee bar had a good coffee in normal prices. The biggest problem was that one night a group stayed at the hotel and all night they were drinking, shouting,... More

The Hotel is very beautifull for the price. If you get economy room, it is normally you get old furniture, and no wi-fi. But the other rooms are great. The Hotel is near center. Breakfast was excellent. You can smoke everywhere in the Hotel, there is Disco down the Hotel where you can spend the nights.Also the biggest casino is... More

Normal, clean room. Smell of cigarettes (in Bulgaria, smoking is permitted everywhere, no separation between smoking/nonsmoking areas/rooms). Poor breakfast with eggs, non-fresh sausages, coffee, some cakes, etc. Partially broken furniture. Staff is OK, helpful with maps. No safe-box in a room.

This hotel is worth a visit. Rodina means Motherland and this concrete edifice is a testament to the communist past that still haunts Sofia. Russian architecture at it's best or worst, depending on your view, and furnishings and old Eastern bloc style trappings that make you imagine senior KGB members walking around furtively. Is it modern and comfortable? No, it's... More

On a recent stay at this hotel, we discovered discrepancies in our bills in the reception bar and the Marbella café-restaurant. In the bar, the waitress tried to considerably overcharge us by not giving us a bill at all; when we requested one she did everything possible not to let us have one. When we insisted, she brought one with... More

It was clean and the location is ok. The a/c was broken and they had just a fan. Just few from the staff was able to understand English, so they couldn't help us with any informations such as where we can eat or how to transport. In the last floor there was a "bar" with pole dancers kind of cheap... More
