Very good hotel. The place is in the center of the city. The reception was very friendly. We paid few money for what the hotel offers. I think that is the best value for money hotel in the center of Sofia.

I would agree with other reviewers that the hotel is dated but otherwise I thought it was pretty reasonable. The location is great if you're keen on walking around the city, the staff were pleasant and the hotel was pretty much spotless. The breakfast wasn't particularly extensive but included a few different cereals, toast, cold meats and a few cooked... More

The hotel is in an shady area with a high level of crime. It's an older, un-renovated building with an antiquated elevator. The carpets are at least 10 to 15 years old. In the basement there's an "erotic bar." The rooms were relatively clean, but very basic with the furniture and appliances more suitable for a 2 star hotel, perhaps... More

We booked this trip last minute as we had to come to Bulgaria to sign the paperwork for the house we purchased a few months earlier. For the price we really can't complain. Staff were very friendly and we can't fault the service at all. The room and hotel was clean and comfortable (although a bit dated). The beds were... More
