This new hotel is located two blocks from the central train and bus stations so it's a brilliant option for late night arrivals. It's quite new so everything is clean and polished, attractive looking rooms. Walk to city centre took me 15 minutes down the main boulevard and there are supermarkets and small corner shops within a block. If I... More

Very nice room, good breakfast and very friendly staff. No signs, it is difficult to find the hotel with a car and what is not very nice - they charge 10 Euro for parking. Also, because we were with child, they do not have an option with additional bed, but we took suit.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in late September 2014. It is within walking distance of the train station and very reasonable. Although the rooms are small, they are extremely clean and modern. A nearby multistory hotel with casino was four times the price. If you want to spend a comfortable night with no frills, this is the... More

The hotel was really nice in a very low price. Clean room, nice breakfast, quiet neighbourhood-a little bit abandoned but ok. The only problem was (probably for the whole neighbourhood) was a morning smell in the bathrom probably due to drain problems. Helpful staff.

Very good. Well-appointed. Not cheap. Major claim to fame is that it is within walking distance from station and you avoid the grasping taxis. I was really conned getting to the hotel by taxi - went miles out of a direct route. Avoid taxis at all costs in Sofia. They rob the locals too apparently. (Bucharest appears to have got... More

Pros-Small hotel but nice and clean. Friendly staff. Clean room and nice bathroom. Breakfast plentiful and diversified. Cons-Pretty costly an apartment that is actually one room with two double beds - 70 euro. You have to pay for parking 10 euro/night.
