I have an other review of Hemus, however since early this year (2014) Hemus opened it's new wing the Hemus Business Centre where they are offering Business Suites. These rooms are new, stylis and obviously much better than the rooms in the old part. I really liked it and I think it worth the litle upcharge compared to the old... More

I was invited to this hotel by the Bulgarian Association of Writers. Have visited this hotel a few years ago and hoped it has been improved but everything remained the same. Arriving late at night first thing I was told I have no reservation and thanks to the man from the association accompanying me I was found. The room was... More

I stayed for 2 nights there. The service was friendly and the breakfast was satisfying. The only thing that we didn't like is that the bathroom was pretty smelly when we first entered, not because it wasn't clean, but maybe because it was closed for quite some time. However we needed a budget hotel, so it did the thing for... More

The hotel is in a nice building, in a very good location in walking distance from the city center. But as hotel needs a lot to be done, the rooms are very sad and you can smell the humidity in them. There is a 10 euro difference between the normal room and the renovated ones, but the renovated are exactly... More

It was a short Stay there in Sofia and we did felt good in this Hotel. Although we have been there only 2 nights, we say, that it was all very friendly and totally clean there. During our Stay, we went two times there for Breakfast, wich was nice decorated and all fresh. Good Coffee there!!!

This is an average hotel with 80's decoration, but conveniently located near historical downtown and public transportation. There is a mall across the street, in case that wandering around the city center won't leave you enough time for more proper shopping, though there is nothing special to buy from Bulgaria other than antiquities and generally (vintage) staff that can be...

We stayed for a night and I can't say we were too impressed. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad hotel, but it's not great. I wasn't as clean as we would have liked it to be and the breakfast was average. But we really liked the location - it's within walking distance from the city center and there's... More

I had to stay for month in this hotel (business trip). It has 80s room with socialist decorations, small bathroom with inadequate shower curtain so you have to be very careful not to flood whole bathroom. I have never tasted food from this hotel so I can't say anything about it. Internet connection was ok most of the time, but... More

I stayed in Hemus hotel for one week. Cleanliness of rooms was not perfect, even though cleaning was done daily, and breakfast not bad...on average with my expectations, let's say! The hotel per se doesn't have much to offer: it has no swimming pool, no gym, etc. Still it has two advantages: it's quite cheap (compared to West European price... More
