Stayed at the grand in may of 2014 over a bank holiday weekend. The hotel was spotless, worth going the extra mile to book junior exec rooms 2 lads sharing and we were in different post codes the rooms were that big. First time in the city and i would recommend this as a base to visit the city.

It is indeed a Grand Hotel. The staff is very friendly, the rooms very big and the breakfast fantastic. The location is excellent, close to the city centre. It is formally on the expensive side but you can find very good discounts through the Internet and booking agencies. I did not give them the excellent mark only because they have... More

good location, easy access to a main commercial street with many stores and restaurant. As a Chinese, glad to find a China express food where two local guys were doing the cooking. The cashier girl spoke excellent English with American accent. The restaurant was called "Wok to Walk". Taste not bad! Walking distance to Nevski church. Spacious room again. booked... More

Room #404 and what a room! It is probably 40 feet by 60 feet in size. A large desk/chair work area; rather hard queen-size bed with good (not great linens) with two night stands, foot table, multiple cabinets for storage, flat-screen television, two loveseats with coffee table and multiple lamps. The “suite” has a tray ceiling and has three phones.... More

I visited this hotel in Sofia some time ago. I was impressed by the beautiful building, excellent restaurant and friendly staff. The room located in the 3rd floor had a great view and was ideal for a young family. Every night children had a chocolate surprise under their pillow(thanks to the staff). The breakfast is a great memorable experience. Overall,... More

You want a room big enough to play tennis? You want an excellent breakfast? And you want to be in the centre of Sofia, then this hotel is a must. Friendly staff and enormous rooms. Maybe hilton is more modern, but this location is just an extra. Fantastic view on the national theaters and the surrounding parc.

Room big enough to play football in. I have always told my children never to stay in a hotel with the name Grand or Majestic because they seldom are. But there are exceptions.
