“Huge rooms, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Stayed here for two days. Free parking was included (unlike they say on every site).
Huge rooms which look very very well, very clean and we felt very good there.
The restaurant has special food and very tasty, highly recommend it too.
Gave it four stars because of some noise and night and early morning (probably some issues, but they should've said something).
Breakfast was awesome too.
Impressed with the wifi (separate wifi networks for every room) and the fact they had bio products in the bathroom :)

Room Tip: we stayed at 206 which had the windows to the inner yard, very quiet,

Not the type of hotel for someone used to Hiltons and Sheratons.
Actually, the girst impression is probably not the best.
However, it provides a lot at low cost. Excessively spacious. Two tvs. Fine bathroom. Quiet enough if not a room facing the avenue.
Free wifi. Breakfast included. Free access to fitness room - very decent and sauna. Slippers, robe etc.
They need to do something though with the detergents they use. Very heavy smell. Also, can be slow at reception.
Overall: decent enough, worth it if you want to save some money.

Good hotel in a very central location (10 min walking distance to city center). We booked a double room, but instead we got a suite with extra living room and small kitchen, which was great! Rooms are clean ans spacious and breakfast buffet in the morning was very good. Buffet included fresh juices, variety in bread and meats as well as yummy fruits. Internet wasn't great as it only worked in the lobby, but didn't bother us too much. Overall good value for money.

This is not a joke. Upon entering the room I found two used condoms on the floor. Dirty. Their idea of not smoking must be that somebody did not smoke in the room in the past 8 hours.

Do yourself a favor, choose another hotel.

Room Tip: I found two used condoms in the floor of my room. This is not a joke. Awful. Stay away.

I stayed in this hotel with my wife for 5 nights in the last week of May 2014. The hotel is very good in many respects. It appears to be rather new. The rooms are big & the bathrooms have all facility. The rooms are very clean. The breakfast menu is quite comprehensive & includes choice of fresh cut fruits, whole fruits, dry fruits, 4 types of flakes/muesli, pancake, juices, yoghurt, breads, cake, and a few non-veg items. We are strict vegetarians & did not try any non-veg food. The décor of the breakfast restaurant is quite beautiful with all the walls covered with very good paintings. The food at the restaurant on 5th floor is also quite good. The staff are very helpful & courteous. The room has TV with nearly 150 channels including several English channels for news, movies, sports etc. The location is also quite good. There is shopping street just behind the hotel. It is rated 5 star but tariff is not too high. Overall excellent value for money. We were very happy with our stay here.

Had 1 night in this hotel

Was given an apartment on the top floor

Lovely and clean. Massive bathroom with all your shampoos etc provided .

Had a big bath tub also with a power shower

Lovely big bed . Biggest bed have ever seen.

Breakfast was very nice with a great selection including sausages eggs beans etc plus fresh fruit cheese meats and bread and cereals etc

Swimming pool included in the price of the room as well . Lovely pool. Only thing had to buy was some sandals .

Wifi worked well

Only negative comment would be it's about 35 min walk from Sofia main railway station . Taxi only costs about £3 . Hotel in good location for city centre .

All staff very friendly well worth a visit !
