Beautiful hotel situated in the heart of Sofia near all the attractions of this city. Rooms large and spacious, cleaned daily. Breakfast good, however drinks priced much higher than elsewhere in Sofia. I'd recommend eating and drinking in the adjacent 'Happy' bar, very cheap and cheerful. Venture outside late at night and expect to be confronted with hookers and their... More

Nice and clean hotel that sits in the heart Sofia. For the quality you're receiving it's not expensive. If you stay on the upper floors you have excellent view of National Assembly Square with Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in the background.

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.

I travel with my vocation all over the world. I usually stay at more "known" hotels such as the one who has the daughter who is usually in the news.

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.

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.
