“A nice, clean hotel convenient for the airport.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

A Nice, modern hotel with modern, comfortable rooms that are clean albeit a bit basic. The breakfast was excellent with a good range on offer. It is unfortunate that the staff at the hotel were not very "smiley"; all a bit glum and not very welcoming. We liked it though.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights stay in this wonderful hotel. The hotel rooms are very spacious, clean and with new and modern conveniences. This hotel provides free mini bar drinks which are RE-SUPPLIED daily! - an unbelievable experience.
Food at the restaurant is also very good and with good service.
Within walking distance to shopping complex. Location is good and away from traffic.

Room Tip: Not an issue.

Dear Sachin,

Thank you for choosing Metropolitan Hotel Sofia!
I hope you enjoyed your stay and will be more than happy to welcome you back during your next trip.

It is very helpful for our team when guests spare some time to review us on TripAdvisor.
It is also very important for future visitors to read past guests’ reviews before booking their own stay.

I would like to mention that we have 2 Mercedes Sprinter buses (8+1 seats) that are available for transfers from/to the airport, the city center and any other location. If you decide to be our guests again, we will gladly offer you the opportunity to use the shuttle bus to take you to any point of interest.

Sincerely,

Martina Sarafova
Director of Sales & Marketing

I stayed at the Grand over the weekend and other than its location it had nothing more to offer than this hotel, in fact I preferred this hotel. Superb staff, better breakfast and breakfast experience. The waiters on an evening wanted to make sure you were well looked after and the reception staff were the same. If I was to have one complaint it would be to sort the coffee service in a morning but hey how minor is that.

It is a typical business and convention hotel, with all services that a business traveler expects. Complementary mini bar, free wifi, ATM in the hotel and free airport pick up.

Staff is friendly and has a perfect level of English, German is spoke widely.

Just add a little personal style and charme it would be perfect.

the location is convenient to the airport and to the expo center.

Although it is little bit outside, it is always our first Choice in Sofia and we can recommend this Hotel to everyone. Why? The Value is perfect there, Always friendly and good english speaking employees at CheckIn. Good and nice decorated Breakfast - with freshly made Omlettes. Nice Restaurant - not overprized - with Style and a good Wine Selection. Large Shopping Mall just few Minutes away.
