The hotel is convenient located in city centre With walking distance to restaurants. There is also a park nearby where you can jog. Radisson quality on staff, beds and breakfast (very good). The hotel is a little out dated but overall my choice in Sofia.

I chose the Raddison Blu because of its location. Only 5 minutes walk to Alexander Nevsky Cathedral this hotel was perfectly located to restaurants and the main tourist attractions. The hotel was modern and well designed and the room generously proportioned. I would have thought however that a pool is essential in a modern hotel. The bathroom was well designed... More

Stayed on a business trip in the suite. The suite was very luxurious and the rates were fine. Location was excellent, right in the city centre. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Very helpful english speaking staff.

No 'mixed feelings" is not the right description. The feelings were bad. From the moment I entered into my room which was smaller than my bathroom (I live in standard appartment). Through necessity for calling 3 times until I finally get the iron board. Eventually breakfast was poor. Simply poor... and nobody cared to notice I have no coffee. So... More

Room was very spacious and comfortable, and hotel location is nicely central. The bathroom was also large, clean and well-eqipped, with two sinks, a bath and separate shower cubicle. I was here for a short business trip and the hotel was ideal for this, although I'd also definitely choose this hotel for a non-business trip.

Five minutes before checking into the Radission Sofia, my kids and I were at the vile concrete hulk-like railway station wondering where to go, and trying to pick up a wifi signal. Thankfully we got onto Expedia and made our way to the Radisson Blu. Really so central, it's located opposite the Parliament, with great service. The attached restaurant served... More

I've stayed for 2 nights for a business trip and chose this hotel mainly because of its central location. The hotel is facing the Parliament, and is next to the Cathedral Alexander Nevski. The access to Tsarigradsko shousse, which takes you to the airport is also very handy as you can skip a lot of the traffic jams in the... More
