I found the staff to be friendly and extremely helpful when i asked questions and directions. I have stayed at several hotels for the past ten years in Sofia during my yearly trips. I have to say this is the nicest hotel i have stayed at. The rooms are a bit small, not inconvenient at all, just a little smaller...

This time last week we were just arriving at Central Hotel and first impressions were excellent (the chap on reception welcomed us with a smile, faultless English and helped me save 10 Lev on the attempted rip-off non-metered OK Supertrans fare - naughty, naughty!) and our opinion never dropped in the 5 nights we were there.

I think it was a very good surprise, a place to stay very closed to the centre of sofia, not absolutely expensive, but full of every comfort, room was clean so nothing more to ask, also the staff was always kind.

Do not book this hotel, because you cannot be sure you will be staying in it. At the time I booked this hotel, (in July 2016) I don't believe there were any reviews about overbooking. I travel all the time, and I'm extremely sensitive to any reviews where hotels overbook. THIS HOTEL DOES OVERBOOK. I booked this hotel through Amoma,...

Beautiful, boutique hotel with hard working friendly staff. They have an online portal once you book which makes contacting the hotel and arranging requests much easier.
