This was the only one available on my short trip to Golden Sands. I am glad it was. It is much better priced than the others in the same area and is perfect for simply a place to crash out. The best part is that breakfast is free. I am not sure if dinner is free but it was for... More

Hotel Sofia is located on the second line from the beach (5 min. walking). To reach the beach you need to go down on stairs, and then on a valley. The Hotel is clean, the personnel is friendly, food is marvelous. We had one night of Bulgarian cuisine and one night of Italian cuisine. The swimming pool is medium sized,... More

Communal areas are kept spotlessly clean but rooms though cleaned daily are a bit dated. The shower had hot water 24/7 but was a hole in floor of bathroom. Majority of staff were... More
