We stayed 4 nights as part of our 2 month roundtrip in Eastern Europe. The location is about 7 kilometers from the centre, so choose wisely. We had a car, so that was no problem. We preferred a quiet area, and went also for the swimming pool. The pool is great, our kids loved it. The apartments are also very... More

We planned our trip for tennis on May 2012. As we were 4, we got villa for our stay - I would say an excellent place for staying. Large lounge, two sleeping rooms, two showers and so on... Friendly staff helped with each and every small problem.

We stayed at the hotel because we were guests at a wedding that took place there. The wedding itself was great and staying therefore was convenient and also totally ok. However, if I'd go to Sofia for leisure or business, I would not recommend that hotel. The reasons are: - if you've stuff to do in Sofia, the hotel is... More

Holiday village diplomat is a very nice hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful, even if their English could be a little better. The hotel is situated around 20 minutes drive from the city centre, but is surrounded by greens and has a nice pool, so if you're looking for a relaxing holiday - like we were - this is... More

This complex is not as far away from the city center as I had read. The biggest problem is that it is pretty hard to find if you don't know the area or you didn't view its precise location on the map because it has another firm written at the entrance. It has many buildings, one for reception, one for... More

Where do you start with this hotel or holiday complex. When we stayed there it was one big building site. Our rooms were large but souless and empty. Beds were hard. There were no instructions anywhere on how to use the phone to call for more pillows. On check out we were asked if all was OK and lack of... More

Im not sure how I ended up here. It was MILES away from the city. Luckily (I suppose), I was sick for a few days so I could only manage to get there once anyway. If your up for trying to catch the local trams, good luck. A taxi sets you back around 10 Bulgarian $$ each way. The rooms... More
