Beautiful location and well appointed room. Almost too big a room,the entry hall was massive revealing plenty of cupboards and then a suite which includes two sofas and a desk along with a king bed. Breakfast was basic buffet. Nothing to fault here

We stayed on our way back from the seaside at the Grand Hotel Sofia! It was fantastic! Nicely located - close to everything interesting in the city, large, clean and comfortable rooms and nothing to complain about. Breakfast was nice, wi-fi above expectations - excellent! People are very friendly and do their best to make you feel Grand!

Right in the heart of Sofia, so easy to get practically everywhere on foot. Very helpful and efficient staff. Our room was huge and very clean. The hotel backs onto a park with lovely fountains and entertainment!. Our room was at the front, opposite a very noisy late bar which was still rocking at 3am!, but would still definitely recommend.

The Grand Hotel Sofia is a fabulous hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful, never failing to provide with suggestions and tips. Room was large, clean and comfortable, with lots of amenities. Location couldn't be better, bang on city centre. Breakfast was excellent. A real gem. Highly recommended.

The hotel is in a perfect location to see Sofia! The staff were all very friendly and very efficient from reception to the staff on the restaurant terrace!

I stayed in this hotel only for one night, but it made a big impression on me. Over the years I've stayed in many Bulgarian hotels and this is definitely the best. Located a very short walk away from the city center (in fact it is in the center). On arrival at the airport, a driver was waiting for me.... More

For business I travelled once again to Sofia and decided to come back to Gran Hotel Sofia. I booked an Executive room but also Standard rooms are already big! The room was simply huge! Never seen a thing like this for a simple executive room; maybe you will find the style of the hotel a little bit old fashioned but... More

Classic hotel in style and service, and could be a back-drop for a Poirot adventure. Almost everything is on a grand scale, apart from the lifts, which are quite small ( 4 people max), but there are 3 of them, and we never had to wait. We had a corner room with 3 windows which was bright and absolutely huge.... More
