Very modern inside (don’t let the dated exterior fool you). Efficient service. The hotel is very covid aware and the sanitary steps taken were second to none. Felt very safe staying here. Beds comfortable and abundance of pillows for a goods night sleep

Great hotel next to the subway and not far from the center. Very clean throughout. Breakfasts are delicious. We haven't been to the hotel restaurant, so I can't advise anything. Nearby, within walking distance, there are many places to eat. If you need a supermarket, that is, very close - hidden in the underground passage to the subway station.

This was our second extended stay there (the first one was the n 2019) and they delivered another perfect experience. Wonderful front desk service, fantastic views (just make sure to get a room with a “cathedral view”) over the most historic part of Sofia, and one of the best restaurants in town (Floret). Overall amazing quality at a very decent price. They were diligent in enforcing COVID protocols, which was a welcome departure from the generally lax attitudes towards wearing masks and maintaining social distance elsewhere in Bulgaria. The only minor gripe was with breakfast - we thought the buffet breakfast could be better, with offerings that better showcased Bulgarian cuisine. The a la carte cooked breakfast options were fine

We usually book flats while in Sofia but the last one was so disappointing we ran away and walked into the Intercontinental. We're used to 5-star hotels but it was the first time at the Intercontinental Sofia. It went beyond expectations: excellent front office, friendly and professional. Highly trained staff, awesome rooms and icing on the cake: breakfast is a real treat!
