Great location for this hotel. Right off the beautiful predestrian zone. Many shops, cafes, etc. The receptionist was helpful and friendly. The hotel overall was clean. However, it was very dark in the hall and in the room. We ate dinner in the restaurant. It was a pretty garden setting. The food was good and the service friendly.

We arrived at midnight via taxi from the train station and were greeted by a well informed, English speaking clerk who knew who we were before we even spoke and got us quickly situated into our comfortable room, after a long journey. Good restaurant at the hotel for the included breakfast, as well as for dinner, with garden seating. We... More

We had just arrived in Sofia in time to be caught in a large thunderstorm. We made the shops two minutes away during a lull in the thunder and got beautifully caught in exceptional rain. Shopping except for umbrellas was out. Despite the pressure on desk staff they coped we'll. We were given our keys quickly and no one said... More

Stayed 4 nights at centrally located Niky hotel. Reception and breakfast staff were OK and polite but gave us the impression that they were a bit reserved. Our room was on the 2nd floor, was medium size with good bed and had a large balcony overlooking their hotel’s garden restaurant. Room & bathroom were daily clean and towels changed. Kettle... More

I visited Hotel Niky in June 2014 for three nights. The hotel was clean and friendly, I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Sofia, it is good value and walking distance to the shops, coffee bars and bars. A nice stay.

A group of us stayed here for about 4 days, end of May. We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The rooms, though not air conditioned, were clean including the bathroom. The staff were really helpful and added that extra touch of assisting us as needed. There is a garden restaurant located on site. Food was delicious. The menu extensive... More

Disappointed as this hotel as it had been a favorite of ours when in Sofia. Arriving late in the evening, I of course wanted to sleep in. No chance. Very noisy. Also since I slept in I was too late for breakfast so decided to go to the restaurant for a coffee. think it was the worst coffee I had... More

Having never travelled to Eastern Europe, I wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by Hotel Nicky. The rooms had big comfy beds, lots of built in storage, modern bathrooms (though my room had lacked a lip on the floor of the shower, so water got everywhere), and a BONUS tea kettle in the room. The wifi was... More

This hotel is located 10 minutes from the centre of Sofia. The staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were basic but clean. The breakfast was decent enough offering a variety of rolls, pastries, fruit and cereals. The hotel has a very nice beer garden offering a great range of soft and alcoholic beverages as well as traditional meals if required.... More
