The hotel is perfectly located. The staff are very polite, proffessional and friendly. The rooms are very spacious and luxurious. Excellent breakfast. The service to the airport is very efficient and highly recommended.

I had huge very luxurious room. Walking distance to everywhere. Breakfast disappointment, close to one in mass market and it doesn't match the premises - huge hotel with poor family morning table. Enjoined the dinner in the hotel restaurant. Very recommended, so you can correct the experience from the morning meal. Had the room on the street view. Quite noisy... More

Excellent hotel. Very central. High standards, helpful staff. The room I had was a standard double (I think!) but it was huge, with a separate dressing area and bathroom. Didn't eat here but service was great in the bar area. Nice touch with the lifts - they change the carpet each day to reflect the day ("welcome Friday" etc)

Grand Hotel Sofia is the best hotel in Sofia and probably in Bulgaria. It's so perfect I can't believe it's not a part of a big chain as Four Seasons. The rooms are huge and beautifully furnished. The bathroom is big, completely covered with green marble which looks like malachite. The service is impeccable. We've stayed there two times (the... More

Stayed here 2 nights as part of an Insight Tour. Was allocated an Executive Room, a very large and spacious room with 2 double beds. Fully carpeted, elegantly decorated, quality furnishing, marble in the bathroom and everything works - this is a top class hotel with a high level of pride in its maintenance and finishing. Amenities included free wifi,... More

An excellent hotel with a good location in the heart of Sofia adjacent to an attractive park. Our room was spacious and comfortable and the wired internet was exceptionally fast. The wifi was also good. The original artwork decorating the corridors was a nice touch. The Shades of Red restaurant was excellent as was the hotel's adjacent cafe. We enjoyed... More

Grand Hotel Sofia is in the very city centre and has the look and feel of an establishment that has been around for centuries. In fact, it is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. This was my second stay and both times everything was impeccable. Rooms are spacious and some even have a balcony and breakfast is very good, too.... More

This hotel has it all; great location - close to many sites, restaurants, bars, cafes and shops. There are some really nice squares not far away where you can have a coffee or drinks and just enjoy the city parade by.
