Several friends and myself decided to end our recent skiing trip with a One Night Stop Over in Sofia, and picked the Central as in its name is central to the city centre (centrum). A few hundred meters walk to the pedestrianised shopping/restaurant/bar area.
First impressions were that it was very modern, clean, clean lines, the staff professional and reception efficient.
The room (I selected a deluxe double, others in the party selected the classic double but unless they were upgraded without being told seemed identical to the slightly pricier deluxe room) was very clean and well presented, with usual touches like complementary water/snack etc. albeit expected in a hotel of this quality (things we did not get at the ski resort).
The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom well stocked with the usual shower gels, shampoo's etc.
The windows are well insulated against road traffic noise as on a busy road but unfortunately means unable to leave open through the night.
Self service breakfasts, both continental and cooked were available, with a very good selection for both. The breakfast staff were very efficient and helpful, in smart uniforms (as were all other members seen).
Checkout was again efficient and the bill presented in both Euro's and BGN which did mean a little thinking about when normally using GBP.
Airport transfer was an option when booking (Free with a booking) which arrived promptly (in fact in plenty of time to load luggage etc and still depart on schedule) the driver was very courteous and communicative.
I have given an excellent rating for value, however not having experienced other Sofia hotels am not sure if this to be accurate.
A one night stay is not necessarily long enough to provide an accurate picture but if I was to return to Sofia again the Central Park would be my choice.
