Quiet, pleasant and well-located hotel. Room 406 was large, clean and comfortable. Beds were firm which is what we like. The bathroom and toilet are separated with the toilet at the entrance of the room. The L'Occitane toiletries were much appreciated. Breakfast was a decent spread. Checking in and out were a breeze.

No noise problem as reported by others. Very convenient, easy to find, parking, spacious, efficient check in. Room has great bath and shower, comfortable, well furnished. Bed was only double, not advertised king size. Sitting in the lobby bar and looking at the basement with the remains of the Roman amphitheatre is an experience.

Hotel is in the centre but lacks a view. Nice people who do their best. Nice and spacious rooms and really very nice an luxury bathroom with bath and a great shower. Very impressive lobby with the remains of a 4th century Roman Coloseo right in your face: you are standing in the midst of history there. I thought that... More

Incredible lobby with archeological excavations and new world ambiance and convenience--two worlds unite in one place. Great food & service in the restaurant; rooms are beautiful. Expensive but worth every Lev. Only a small part of the 25,000 seat arena has been unearthed.

My wife and I stopped in room 403, it was a suite (booked a normal room) which was very nice, especially as we got a great deal on Bookings. Negatives: Both the bath tap heads were loose, seemed broken inside, so v difficult to turn on and off, probably been like this for a while! The flow from the shower,... More

But located in central part of Sofia. Breakfast was great. Not many options to eat at the restaurant for lunch and dinner though! Amazing ancient restored arena... More

Very clean and spacious full of marble with historical artefacts in the ground that take pride of place. My room was very nice and plush, since my visit was for 3 weeks I was upgraded to a bigger suite with a better view. Bedding was clean and fresh, there bathrooms were all marble and spacious. Really nice hotel, the staff... More

The Arena di Serdica Residence Hotel is the perfect place to host your conference when in Sofia! I did not stay in this hotel but attended a conference. The staff is welcoming and service minded. Great interior! The colleauges I talked to that stayed in this hotel had nothing but good remarks about this hotel.

This hotel, although somewhat out of the beaten track, is very centrally located, within easy walking distance from most touristic attractions, and quite close to public transportation for those who prefer it, as taxis are very cheap in Sofia. No Casino, so it is good (quiet) and bed (For the gamblers), and no pool which is bed for all, but... More
