I have not stayed over night at this hotel, but on many occasions I have called in to eat in the restaurant, depending on the weather you can sit in or out in the fresh air. After you climb the grand staircase you can enjoy a more classical top quality bar experience. The hotel is situated in a good location... More

First trip to Sofia, Bulgaria and decided to try the Radisson Blu based on location. I was there on business, so wanted to be somewhat central to better use my limited time. The location was everything I hoped for but beyond that not overly impressed and somewhat disappointed by aspects of the hotel. Pros: - Great location near the Alexander... More

Quiet and comfortable, as well as being nice and close to sights to see in the city. Lots of choices for restaurants and shopping nearby. The staff speak English well too, which helps for foreign travellers like me. The odd numbered rooms face the square and the parliament building which is much nicer than the view out the back, directly... More

Very nicely located, close to buisinesses and the heart of the city. A welcoming and efficient team for a hotel equiped with all necessary facilities for work. And above all, right next door to an excellent cigar lounge !

Beautifully located in the city centre, on a square right in front of the Parliament and the S. Alexander Cathedral. Typical Radisson Blu style, my favourite. The staff are very helpful, and very conscious of the language barrier for foreigners. Rooms are large and clean. Room lighting is very work-friendly, compared to other Radisson hotels. Try to have odd numbered... More

Great hotel for stay and for conferences. Great service and location. Breakfast OK, although the service there needs improvement. Rooms comfortable. Club next door can be noisy. Rooms looking out front would be best.

Great location in city center near main attractions. Average+ breakfast with good service, as well in reception. Spacious room with air condition (both cool & warm), free wifi. Reason for not top points is the clearly top price compared to other hotels, though similar experience in other western cities would probably have double price at least. If next trips, Most... More

The hotel is well located opposite the Parliament Building and close to lots of little bars and restaurants although the good ones take some finding! The room was spacious and well equipped, always good to have tea/coffee making! The bathroom again was a large size with separate shower cubicle, although the bath tap had been repaired unsuccessfully and was drooping.... More
