Clean, spacious and comfortable. It would be perfect if there was a mix of pillows, all 4 were hard and not very thick. A soft fluffy pillow would have been wonderful. Even though there was a reasonable choice of TV channels I struggled to find anything other than sport or news in English. The breakfast is adequate but is mostly... More

Downtown is situated close to the city centre but far enough away to still be quiet. The hotel is a good 4 star hotel with a gym, bar, restaurant and free wi-fi on all floors. All the main business and government areas are very nearby (5 minute walk to Interior, Parliament, Presidency, main shopping areas). The staff speak excellent English... More

I found the hotel to be of a very high standard with excellent levels of customer service from everyone. Rooms clean and well maintained with all amenities needed. Breakfast was the only meal experienced but had an excellent choice to cater for all tastes. I did not experience the spa or pool sop cannot rate that

We were there for 4 nights to stay at the film festival. The place was really nice, spacious, with a great little balcony to hang out on. Everyone was really nice, especially a charismatic doorman who made us laugh every time we came and went. Check it out!

Good Service, Good breakfast. Not a BIG 5 star, but a 4+ with all the services you need. there is also a car park underground connected to the lobby, a gift in the city centre. I recommend this hotel.

Thank you for the great review and recommendation. However, there has been a minor misunderstanding. We have only a street-side parking and not an underground one. As in all major cities there are few free spots for cars in the center. Knowing this we always try to help our guest who require a parking for their stay at the hotel. More

This was a good hotel, with clean spactious rooms located in downtown Sofia, close to public transport routes and government offices. There was free wifi provided in all rooms, a good basic gym and a good breakfast buffet. The staff were nice and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to business travelers and others.

Traveled with another couple on their first visit to Bulgaria. Hotel staff all spoke English and were very helpful. Breakfast had a good variety of food familiar to North Americans and items for the adventurous. Easy walk gets you to restaurants/bars/shopping. This property we used as our travel base(home) as we had multi-day trips away and returned here after. They... More
