I originally booked with the Downtown Hotel. When I arrived at Downtown, they said there was no room for me and blamed the travel agent. Then they told me there was a room at the Maria Luisa, 10 min walk (not true). They didn't ask me whether I wanted to go to another hotel of MY choice. I went with... More

I loved the hotel. Such a great hotel with spacious and clean rooms, excellent staff and delicious breakfast. Everything about it is so welcoming. The staff is so polite and ready to offer their assistance. I enjoyed the standards of Maria Luisa!

The hotel is situated on a main street of Sofia. But despite of this the rooms are very quiet. My sister and her husband had a room overlooking the main street but they had no problems with noise. The only thing that they heard was the gentle rumbling of the tram. Rooms are clean, the towels are changed every day... More

The fact is I barely managed to enter the hotel. I had booked a room online, confirmed the booking and started my journey towards Sofia. Just when I was arriving I received a phone call from the hotel, telling me that there was a problem with my room, which had become unavailable (they did not want to tell me what... More

Stayed twice at the Maria Luisa with my adult daughter. Rooms were excellent with all the usual conveniences. Breakfasts were well above average, and the coffee shop Bulgarian menu was all one could ask for. The hotel is in an excellent location in Centrum, within easy walking distance of several of the main tourist sights of Sofia. It's on a... More

My husband and I just returned from Sofia and stayed at the Maria Luisa Hotel. I found it on Hotel.com. We had a lovely suite, the staff were very friendly and attentive, and the Hotel is a landmark in the City. The price was so reasonable compared to nice hotels in the US. We will definitely stay there again when... More

Perfect location! Friendly and helpfull stuff but rooms are quite small. If you're late for breakfast you will find almost nothing there on the tables, so be in time! Good choice for business trip and tours arond the old town of Sofia

Stayed in the suite - lovely room, high ceilings, very comfortable and quiet. No external views but then looking at other travellers pictures maybe that's no bad thing! Bathroom ok. Staff extremely helpful. Provided free lift to and from a restaurant with which they have an 'arrangement' but it was excellent and very good value - I'd recomend it on... More

Well situated in the city centre and within walking distance of the main sights. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean but not on the large side. An excellent breakfast is also provided. If you are looking for a central hotel at a reasonable price I would recommend this hotel.

We got this hotel through the taxi driver who took us from the Bus Terminal near midnight. We could negociate the rate and the room, which was big and beautifully furnished and decorated, according to the building renovated old style. Breakfast was included and had not many choices but all was fresh and good quality, especially the express coffee. All... More
