“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The hotel is in a very good location, only a few minutes walk from centre. The suite was clean and comfortable, but bathroom small. Staff very helpful and breakfast was good. The hotel placed a complimentary bottle of wine with two glasses on my last day as it was my birthday. Very nice of them. I recommend this hotel to anyone one visiting Sofia.

The hotel below average overall. The staff not motivated and not helpful. Bad stains on the hall carpet. Food disappointing. The positives: good location, comfortable bed, cleanliness of the room. Not worth the money paid. Will not come back.

The hotel was nothing more than adequate. The location was okay, the breakfast reasonable. The shuttle driver had the good grace to await our arrival late at night although our flight from Istanbul was delayed for an hour and a half because birds flew into the engine during take-off which was aborted (scary). Clearly four stars in Bulgaria (as we learnt in subsequent stays elsewhere) is misleading -but it was indeed better than the four star Hotel Bulgaria in Burges, quite the most abominable institution posing as an accommodation establishment I have yet to encounter.

This is a business type of hotel, it is very clean and comfortable. I loved the idea of two single duvets, makes sense! Breakfast was adequate, much the same as any other hoetl the staff are helpful The hotel has a great location. We would stay here again.

Good choice for a trip to Sofia, close to many attractions and restaurants. The room is average, the beds are good. Bathroom small, but okay. Service is okay, not excellent. Breakfast is above average, good choice and variety.

Good location for a visit to Sofia City Centre. Not the cheapest, but good for the main sights in the city, being walking distance from all of them. Reasonable rooms for a city centre. Good breakfast sets you up for the day.
