Hotel is very average in general and the biggest failure is restaurant. Waiters are not professional, alway something missing during breakfast, dirty tables, etc. Rooms itself are nice and sleeping quality quite well. No air conditions in the corridors so with 30 degrees outside it is very uncomfortable. Advantage is location in close car distance to the airport.

I only stayed one night as I was on my way to the airport for a really early departure. The hotel offers complimentary shuttle to the airport - even at 4:30am. This takes about 10 minutes or less. This strikes me as a business traveler's hotel and it certainly worked for me. Reception staff were really polite, spoke excellent English... More

This was one of the best hotels we stayed in during a recent visit to Bulgaria. It's located very close to the airport and provided one free shuttle service returning to airport. You have to pay 3 euros per person for other trips and shuttle service to the airport must be arranged prior to arrival. Out room was very nic.... More

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
