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

I used this hotel for the first time , for 3 nights ( checked in on 14.02, 2015 and checked out on 17.02,2105 ) The problems started right upon arrival. 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.

Located on one of the busiest roads of Sofia, offering great view from most of the rooms that overlook the Tsarigradsko Shosse boulevard. Free drinks on the mini bar (beer, water & soft drinks), quiet & clean. The average rate is around 75 euros for a double room with breakfast which is a good value for money for a 5-star... More

First time in Sofia. Business trip. Hotel condition is fine, friendliness staff, very quick work of receptionist. Room - normal size. I like shampoo there. In refrigerator has drinks for free - local beer, water, coca-cola, juice. Bed linen is very good. Breakfast is very rich! Near hotel - big shopping center. Distance to city center ~7 km.

The rooms are comfortable and great choice for breakfast. Good location for airport and for meetings. I would like to thank the staff at the front desk for their efficiency, professionalism and honesty. When checking out I forgot my billfold containing an important sum of money. They managed to trace me by making even international calls. So I could recover... More

I have used this hotel many times before and have always been pleased, however this time I was left a little disappointed. I arrived late back to the hotel one night, around 9.30PM, so rather than going to sit in the restaurant on my own, I thought I'd order my dinner from room service, then by the time I'd had... More

Good location for airport. There are not enough visual communication sings for car drivers. Room is large and comforttable. Exelent clean. The bellboy is not helpfull. The roomservice is a little bit slow.

After reading great reviews of this hotel, we were expecting a great stay in Sofia. Unfortunately, our experience was very disappointing. Even though our room was on a high floor, the noisy hotel bar still kept us up almost every night. My girlfriend wanted to spend an hour in the hotel spa/wellness center for her birthday and even though she... More

Dear Mr. Max T, First of all, your profile and your booking do not exist in our hotel list from February 2014. Moreover, it was a big surprise for us to receive your feedback 11 months after your presumptive stay in Metropolitan Hotel Sofia. However, we’ll refute your comments: 1. The Met Bar offers background music that could be heard... More

Having been overnighted due to a cancelled Thomas Cook flight the reception gave our passports away the next morning to someone else. We are currently in reception, no passports and can't get home. What a joke. To take something so valuable to us and give it away should be a punishable crime. Avoid.
