Stayed at the Metropolitan from 6th-14th July 2014. We were delighted with the warm and efficient reception which we received at the airport as we had requested their free transfer offer. On arrival at the hotel we were warmly welcomed by reception staff, who were very helpful throughout our stay. The rooms were spotless and maid service was provided every... More

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a business trip. Chose this hotel because it is not too far from the airport. I really liked the spacious, clean room. The staff at the reception desk was also very friendly and helpfull. I would gladly recommend this hotel and stay here again on a next Sofia trip.

Metropolitan Sofia was a very good choice. Although not close to Sofia downtown, the boulevard leading to the city centre is just there and by taxi it takes just some minutes. Good and clean rooms, good bathrooms, cleanliness everywhere. Nice bar and very good restaurant. Wide choice of food for breakfast, I think almost all the tastes get satisfied. Waitresses... More

Location ok; breakfast decent; good wi-fi; nice view to one of the main Sofia boulevards; nice people.. One complaint... a strange (not fresh) smell within the room... I suppose is difficult to fresh the air while the windows cannot fully open...

The hotel is one of the best that I have had the pleasure to stay in. The rooms are very quiet, the room service is excellent, there is a free minibar (it is consisted of several drinks which are supplied every day), the sleep is fantastic, I'd recommend a room with a view on the boulevard. The breakfast is exotic... More

Nice standard hotel, everything good, not excellent, but far away from anything to complain. Nice stuff, rooms nice, breakfast good. Location also ok. Price very good. Safe choice but nothing extraordinary.

The property is lovely - modern, clean, elegant. But the management belongs in the Soviet era. Where to begin.... First, it's a business style airport hotel. But try to print a boarding pass - oh, dear. It took over half a hour. Their system is quite bizarre. It took four trips to the front desk and we finally had to... More

I highly recommend this hotel, the staff were brilliant, the rooms were clean and wonderfully furnished, the free mini bar was a welcome touch ! The bed was huge and comfortable. We ate in both the restaurant and bar and could not fault the food, the breakfast was much the same as any other hotel buffet with freshly cooked omelettes.... More
