This hotel is located near the sofia university and not far from airport.(It takes about 20 mins) There are little small and cozy restaurant and luxurious asian cuisine. The hotel employers are well trained and make me comfortable. Actually this hotel is above average 4 star rating hotel.

Ideally located for visit to Sofia with well kept rooms and friendly staff. The hotel is within easy walking distance of local sights, bars and restaurants. Room was aged and located at the rear of the hotel close to noisy air con but that said it was clean and had all the required facilities. One note of caution would be... More

We loved the hotel. The hotel is located right in the heart of the city. Rooms are very big, clean and modern. Breakfast is rich with very nice choices. The only negativity about the hotel is the parking. We will definitely stay in this hotel if we visit Sophia again.

Local business hotel with walking distance from city attractions, narrow alleys start next to the hotel, and additionally the views are fabulous from windows, if you happen to get a room from "right" side. The backyard views are not that fantastic. That does not change the fact that rooms are spacious, comfortable with all facilities a traveller needs. The most... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night. Location is best. City airport bus stop is close to the hotel. Monument to the Liberators, National Assembly and Alexandel Nevski Cathedral are just in front of the hotel. And city center is located at 10-15 minutes walk. The room (No. 417) is wide and clean. All front staffs are very friendly.... More

After running away from a small and cold room in another hotel, I have got to this one, hoping that situation will improve. I could have not expected something good by letting someone else make the booking for me. I have paid 129 eur for a small size room at the end of the corridor, without breakfast and parking tax...

the hotel has a great location, as it is in the heart of the city. however, the rooms and bathrooms are in need of a refresh. i would say it's disappointing for a radisson! the restaurant is dull...although compared to other places in Sofia, the breakfast here is acceptable.
