Cold atmosphere at the reception and the lobby. Very poor breakfast according to the price (19 euro). Very good location, very nice and clean rooms and bathroom. The prices of the restaurant are high. Opposite of the hotel very nice music club .

I was recommended this hotel and saw it had great reviews but I was fairly disappointed. The rooms are large and clean but very dated. The wifi in my room barely worked. The restaurant and food were good, not great. The outdoor garden and location are very nice and convenient. The staff were lovely and helpful.

True 5 star hotel with big rooms and an excellent location. Service, rooms, cleanliness, dinner and breakfast, and atmosphere were all excellent. My only negatives were the lack of a coffee/tea maker, no washers being provided, a loose tap guard, and some bathroom items not replaced on the second day. The Lobby was very good and front desk staff were... More

I made my choice because of the central location, stayed two nights, booked a Superior room. Excellent overall satisfaction, huge rooms and bathrooms, nice and tasty buffet breakfast. What impressed me most is the Bulgarian corner in the breakfast room. I didn’t have time to try the restaurant, next time for sure. Helpful and polite staff as expected for a... More

We recently visited Sofia and stayed at the unbelievable Grand Hotel Sofia. The rooms were well-maintained, beautifully decorated and spacious, and the hotel staff was more than accommodating. The hotel was in close proximity to all historical and cultural attractions. A great deal and wonderful place to stay.
