The best thing about this hotel is it's location. Breakfast is delicious and staff is friendly. The rooms are efficiant, clean and neat. The bathrooms are different sizes so see if you can find a room with a big one. Ask for room on first floor and windows facing away from street. But nice hotel!

We didn't even wanted to take a shower depending how the bathroom looked like. When we got back home the lights went off in our room, so we had so sleep without airconditioner or... More

It has an erotic nightclub and dancers (hookers?) can be seen in hotel areas (specially at night). Breakfast was provided with limited choices. Only... More

Old building, cigarette smell and rooms not clean enough. Don`t recommend. You should pay a little bit more but make sure the quality is better. About the 4 stars - no way, even 2 stars are too many. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was attending a conference at Kempinski hotel for a whole week. Decided to look for a hotel near Sofia's center and travel every day to the conference. I found Gloria Palace. Did all my city tours walking. No need for taxis, subway or trams. Everything is at ten, twenty minute walk. I took a double bedroom for myself. A... More
