And I mean that by going from the corridor into the elevator. Elevator is bright due to the glass structure, the corridor does not have natural light. The hotel was clean and welcoming. I loved the smooth carpet in the hallway, makes me take another and another round of walks on it. People at the reception are kind, there is... More

Taxi driver still thinks its cheaper to take a taxi for the week! I don't want to share room with them if I can help... More

The hotel gave excellent service. I wanted something close to the airport with good wi-fi. The wi-fi worked very well, the "7 minutes drive" to the airport was a little optimistic, but still it is well placed, out of the city, with a direct route to the airport. I found it a little tricky to find the hotel - if... More

The hotel is only 5km away from the airport and 200m from the Expo.. So it is the perfect location for a business trip. If you need to go to the city, the Metro is only 500m away and you need 20min to the city.. (and the mtro is very cheap) The hotel itself is a little bit old but... More

I stay in the B.W. Expo often at the end of my business trip to Sofia because it is very conveniently at a 10 minutes ride from the airport... There is a metro almost in front taking you to the centre of Sofia in 10-15 minutes... very convenient... The hotel is doing it's best to be top level... Lat time... More

I must state at that point in my life (age 43) that I owe some of my best experiences in travelling around the world to TripAdvisor application and for the community that contributes to that idea. I use TripAdvisor for 10 years already and never was disappointed. I will add this opening to my next 10 reviews. I stayed one... More

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
