Fairly close to the airport by taxi, so good choice if you are flying out the next day. Nice dining inside, but you will have to walk across the highway for other dining options. Cross to the gas station and follow the sidewalk to the right, which then curves to the left. Huge modern mall is there with a nice... More

Stayed for 3 nights in Metropolitan Sofia. Location is good, near the airport, near to the shopping center. My room was very big. It was overlooking the airport and the city’s main highway, but the noise isolation is perfect. Internet connection is free and high-speed. The staff is very friendly.

Stayed here overnight before catching a flight out of Sofia. The hotel is about 10 minutes from the airport. It is on a rather confusing junction but once you are there the very helpful concierge/doorman explain how to get out again!! and to get on the right road to get to the airport. The hotel is surrounded by highrise flats... More

I spent two nights here and was nicely surprised. Perhaps my expectations were wrong, since this was my first trip to Sofia after almost 10 years. Anyway, the hotel is close to the airport and to the centre. Check-in is smooth and fast, my room was clean, comfy and big enough. Each floor has a small balcony for us smokers,... More

Great hotel! The room was spacious! The bathroom was clean and comfortable as well! Oh, and the breakfast was something unbelievable - smoked salmon, sausages, fruits, vegetables, amazing coffee and juices! The hotel also offers free transfer to and from the airport! It is a bit far from downtown, but for a couple of dollars you can get to the... More

I've been in this hotel a couple of times, and in my opinion is a great for a 4 star hotel. Service is always the best, breakfast is also very good, and you can get it delivered to your room, if you don't feel like going to the restaurant. If I had a comment it would be the mini bar... More

Since my firm blacklisted IBIS which is closest hotel to the airport; upon arrival from München at 23:00 I was faced with having to find another hotel near the airport. Metropolitan has good ratings and costs €76/night. It's a difficult hotel to find the entrance to at night. I drove over the motorway curb directly into their car park. Reception... More

Even though the property was almost empty and I asked for room in a higher floor , they give me one on the second floor. At check in time I... More

Dear Sergei, You chose to make a non-refundable booking, which grants you a discount, but also imposes specific payment terms, which are clearly described. Non-refundable bookings should be paid and invoiced on the day the booking is made and you have a specific section for invoice details on the reservation form.

Nice welcoming at the reception, polite staff speaking good English, spacious rooms. The bar is a perfect choice to have your drink after a busy day. Safe parking area. Very good value for money. My best stay in Sofia.
