“Central Park Hotel the Only choice for Sofia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I'm travelling often to Sofia for Business and from the beginning, from the opening of Central park Hotel, I've been there. I tried other hotels but always something missing in the service.

I'll return to this hotel in 10 days (22nd-24th October 2013) due the fact that the service is excellent, staff is really professional, serious and very nice (Ms. Gergana at the reservation desk is extremely professional and quick in answers), wi-fi is working very well in every single room and it's a very clean hotel.

Location is interesting, near the centre, with a big choice of restaurants and bar near it.
I recommend it for business travels.

Thank you again Ms. Gergana and to the rest of the Staff.
HCP is my second house

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

The Central Park hotel is right next to the National Palace of Culture in the centre of Sofia, a short walk from the main shopping district (Vitosha boulevard) and really within walking distance of any of the main sites (30 mins walk to the furthest places). It's also right next to one of the subway stations. So, the location is excellent.

The hotel itself is modern, well appointed and clean. They have nice small touches, like leaving a card in your room each day telling you the weather forecast.

The breakfast is very good - lots of variety, hot and cold choices and very good quality. There are a distinct lack of breakfast places in Sofia so this was a real life saver! It is slightly expensive for Bulgaria (12 EUR), but you will only find coffee and cake elsewhere (and even then, most places in Sofia don't open til 10am).

We found the staff to be perfectly competent but not friendly or warm - the basic things we asked for (missing glasses in the room, taxis) were organised efficiently - but we were given the impression we had inconvenienced them in asking.

The TV choice is disappointing - there were only news channels in English (the bulk of foreign language channels are in German).

All in all, recommended for a reasonably priced, safe choice in Sofia.

The hotel is conveniently located in downtown Sofia, with very friendly staff and excellent service. Walking distance to major city attractions, shops, restaurants, and mass transport. The staff will help to accommodate your specific needs.

New modern hotel in walking distance to the city center. Helpful staff, rooms are large, clean, comfortable. Daily change of linen. The hotel offers transportation to and from the airport for a fee.
Breakfast is expensive, we recommend surrounding coffees.
Close to hotel are metro and tram stations.
Good value for money.

It's a nice hotel, with a good location. Nothing special about it, but if you need a good place to stay for business, without extras it's fine.
The breakfast is too expensive. Better to sit in a coffee shop nearby.

Lovely hotel.
Hotel is located very close to the metro station but also walking distance to many attractions. And there is a gear little restaurants around. Lovely large room and bed which was very comfortable. Cocktails in the bar were great, I especially recommend you to try the fresh from pineapple! Breakfast filling - buffet was more than enough. Friendly and helpful staff.
