The hotel is located near the airport and there is a metro station a short walk away that will take you in to the city centre. The complimentary breakfast is very good with hot cooked items like eggs and sausages as it is located in the hotel's restaurant. The staff throughout the hotel speak very good English and are extremely... More

I don't expect much from a Best Western hotel. Perhaps I'm pessimistic or the hotel in Sofia was above average but I liked it. The fact that they have a concierge surprised me. I have no idea what he does except running outside to open the gate to the parking lot since I did not need such services but it... More

Me and my parents stayed there last winter due to a delay in our flight. EasyJet provided the accommodation there and we didn't pay a penny, HOWEVER it is a very expensive hotel for the typical Bulgarian man/womans's pocket and so I wouldn't go there again due to the high prices. The breakfast in the morning was great and rich,... More

We stayed there for 3 nights. The hotel looks clean very organized and the staff is pretty friendly ! The elevator is way too slow. The rooms are good clean and with a nice vew. The bad thing is that the walls are too thin so a lot noise can hear out or to the next room like the couple... More

Stayed here for one night before departing on a morning flight out of Sofia. The staff was very helpful and van help to arrange for your rental car to be picked up there. The restaurant has a pleasant garden, and pretty good good food, though a bit overpriced by Bulgarian standard. The room is clean and comfortable. All in all,... More

I would hate to have to stay in this hotel in the winter as at least on can sit in the garden area during the nice weather. The bar and restaurant areas are very poor and really do lack any atmosphere as does the reception area. The rooms are basic but then again the price and location to the expo... More

The hotel has good location for doing business at the expo, rooms are good and the breakfast was excellent. They have good parking place and that is very important when you travel to Bulgaria! Would recommend the hotel for business travelers

This Hotel is located next to the huge expo centres and not too far from Sophia airport 15 mins away, also close to business areas and a 10-minute drive to the city centre, there is also a very big shopping mall facing the entrance of the hotel, which is about a 10 minute walk, I liked the Pillow Menu, they...

The only thing I appreciate is the service and the kindness of people. All others was poor quality compare to quality and name. First, when I open my door, I thought it was a smoking room because air inside was so nasty. I decide to open the door a bit, but it was not possible. Then a kind of air... More
