“Modern hotel nr train and bus station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

We spent 2 days here and the reception staff were very helpful. The hotel is just down the road from the bus and train station. It is very modern and clean with a good breakfast. Good value for money. The complaint we had was that the room was quite hot and the fridge although seeming to be to be turned on, didn't make anything cool so obviously wasn't working. The 4 main lights in the room weren't working either.

Room Tip: If you want somewhere near the train station like us as we had come overnight by train from Buchares...

We stayed at Hotel Budapest for 1 night on a recent Intrepid tour through Bulgaria and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was clean, comfortable and very modern. The free wifi worked great and the included breakfast was excellent - good selection of hot and cold foods. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke perfect English, which was great! The hotel itself is close to the old town and main sights but in a quiet spot. There are some good restaurants close to the hotel for dinner but they also have a restaurant on site and do room service which was nice. Overall we were very happy with our stay at Hotel Budapest and would highly recommend it if you're looking for a good home base from which to explore Sofia.

Great place to stay. Equi-distance between the central railway station and the centre of town. The receptionist, Sonia, couldn't have been more helpful. Room was; quiet, clean, wifi worked well, shower was good, and the breakfast had a good variety. We would stay there again.

Convenient as the hotel is just a short walk from the centre of town and has good clean rooms. Our only complaint is that the the shower was slow to drain and the hotel is a little overheated. Good buffet breakfast.

We stayed at the beginning and end of our trip and both times, the rooms had a lovely view and the place was spotless. The location was a bit away from the action, but it was not a very far walk to downtown (~15 mins). The real highlight though, was the included breakfast, which was the best we experienced on our two-week trip. The dinner was outstanding as well. I was traveling with my father and they kept trying to put us in a room with a double bed, but we worked it out eventually.

I recently reserved the Budapest Hotel for a company event we had in Sofia. The Hotel team did an excellent job both in service delivery as well as the quality of food and drinks.
Rooms are comfortable and location is just 15 min. walk from the city center. Restaurant staff and catering were well organized. Wi – Fi is available everywhere in the hotel.
Everything I requested was ready. Anything we needed was brought right away. There was not one thing I could complain about. I would recommend this hotel for business or pleasure when visiting Sofia.

I give it four stars largely because of the excellent service. I needed to check-in online for a flight the following day and was stuck without a phone or laptop in Sofia and couldn't find an Internet cafe. The hotel desk clerk happily let me use his laptop and then arranged a packed breakfast that I could take early the next morning. The rooms are clean but a little dated, though the bathroom and shower were upgraded. The hotel is a 15-minute walk from the center.
