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

I haven't known an hotel in 50 years of travelling where the ladies at the reception stand up everytime I pass by! Free city maps at the reception. Good room, electronic key and electronic sensors everywhere. Room normal size, with modern colours. Minibar, desk and chair and so on. Balcony is fine. 15 minutes walking to the city centre, OR...

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.

Great small hotel. Would recommend it to my friends. Great staff, English-speaking reception and waitress at restaurant. Good quality breakfast and overall restaurant service. The hotel is placed close to center of the city and very close to central bus station.

It was a cool hotel, very close to the city center, with a subway station at five minutes on foot, room was comfortable and very quiet. Maybe they should have a better breakfast for arriving to 10 points
