If you are looking for a good ratio of price vs quality hotel you should definitely consider Expo hotel in Sofia. Excellent internet for free, good location on the main avenue of Sofia, close to airport. Will come back for sure.

AC does not work at all even though they say it does. The fan provided for us was broken, which we found out when going to bed, so it was too late to report.

Room 311, corner room, view was ok. The mountain view rooms are the best. The hotel is right by the subway which can get you around very efficiently. Go down to Serdika and see the Roman road exhibit that has just opened up. The rode was discovered as the subway expansion dig unearthed it.
