Location is great, walking distance from the city center. The room is big enough and comfortable. Bed is very good. Street is loud, but windows are very good. Room has a safe for the laptop, desk and a chair. Internet was solid. The bathroom needs more small cosmetic goods as shampoo, conditioner and other stuff. Bathroom bit small but the shower is greate. Breakfast is very good. Overall everything was fine.

Room Tip: Underground garage is available 300m from the hotel. The best is to take a room with paid parking.

Fair hotel in Sofia. I consider this hotel as a great option for both: business or family trip. Rooms are clean and spacious, breakfast- fair with selection of everything you need. My friendly advise for those who arrives with car- to contact hotel in advance in order to reserve the parking spot in hotel’s parking, otherwise they will provide you with one -5 minutes walking distance. In general: I consider this hotel as a combination of great price and great service. Will consider this hotel next time as well.

Very comfortable hotel, everything looked new and clean. The hotel location is very central and close to the main metro hub, so it will ease to walk around and get to the airport. Very helpful staff. A great offering altogether.

Booked this hotel for an overnight stay in Sofia. Wasn’t expecting much but shocked by the standard of the hotel! Sofia is relatively cheap so you can get a 4-5* hotel for much better service. Room is filthy ! It is so dirty, photos attached. Asked reception for a wine glass and some ice and was refused as “kitchen is closed” I’ve travelled for over 10 years and even hostels provide ice. Stay away from this hotel, really regret choosing it.

I enjoyed our stay in the hotel. The bedrooms are comfortable but the bathroom is superior to most hotels of the cathegory. The only thing I would improve is breakfast, adding more bread types. Very well located.

I have lived there several times this year, more than 2 months in total. In common everything is ok. The rooms are different. There are good silent rooms and the rooms with broken equipment, bad smell and noise from the street. In most cases the breakfast here is good but when the quantity of guests is getting low the breakfast becomes continental that is very bad. And you can't control this process.
