I stayed at the novotel for 5 nights on business. It was chosen as it is close to my office, but it also close to the airport and there is a new modern mall next door. The hotel itself is modern and has really good sized rooms and lovely clean bathrooms. I was really impressed with the room size and quality and the free soft drinks in the mini bar was a nice touch. I ate in the restaurant for both breakfast and evening meals and service was very good and the food quality also good. The front desk were very helpful supplying iron and ironing board when I asked for them and the free shuttle to the airport was also appreciated. The hotel is a little way out of the centre of Sofia but you can get a taxi from the mall and they are so cheap it only cost about £3 each way - just make sure you get a proper cab company. All in all I enjoyed my stay, my only negative comments would be that the gym & leisure facilities are not great. It comprises of two treadmills and one exercise bike and some free weights. It was almost always full in there so i didnt get to exercise - and the steam room has no information as to whether there are changing facilities, whether its unisex etc. However if i were to stay again there is a gym next door which a colleague negotiated a weekly price for using. My only other comments are that the bathroom while nice and large, the towel size and toiletries are adequate but not brilliant and the monsoon shower isnt very powerful - however these are details you would expect from a 4 or 5 star luxury hotel so for the price of the Novotel its not a big deal and overall i would recommend this hotel.
