Well, such is the breakfast at the metropolitan,I had never considered it, it did not convince me to book the hotel for 4 nights, but I was assured from nothing on multiple that it was a superb breakfast,...

I often travel to Sofia and every time I stay in different hotel. This time my choice was Metropolitan and I don’t regret. The room was very clean and nice, the view from the ninth floor was great! It was a surprise that the minibar was free of charge, however, there were only beer, juice, water, coke, and no food... More

Really nice and luxurious hotel located close enough to the airport to make an early morning transfer convenient, but not so close as to be an airport hotel. It's located near the metro and a large mall so there is plenty to do. Comfortable beds, modern rooms and decent WiFi make it a complete package.

We stayed only 1 night in this hotel. Is a little bit far from the city center, but for us the location was very good as we were in Sofia just in transit. The rooms are spacious, clean and nice. Maybe the only thing that makes this hotel not to be a 5 stars one is that it doesn't have... More

Me and my girlfriend just spent 3 nights at this hotel. Our experience was good, being in a good location close to the airport. All the staff talked in English and were friendly. Clean hotel and variety for breakfast. We recommend this hotel to everyone visiting Sofia.
