Stayed here as part of a work trip to a conference in Sophia. I asked for a room that overlooked the parliament for the views. Had the added bonus of getting a first hand view of the demonstrations that were taking place at the time (protestors marched on parliament each night). The staff were very helpful and provided great service.... More

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

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.
