We had two very big luxurious rooms. It's really good value for money! Me and my friends very highly satisfied with the service (especially the room service was super friendly). Can't say much about the spa, didn't seem to be anything special.

Hmmm... where do I start! To begin with their system was down and it took them 15 minutes to sort my reservation out and get me checked-in. This does happen and when it does as it has in the past the hotels I've experienced this at have offered me a free beverage and a place to plant myself whilst they...

Very good, clean hotel located in a convenient spot for a very reasonable price. Walls were a bit thin but not the worst I have ever ex pierced. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was also very good by European hotel standards. I would stay here again.

The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of city center, service is very proffesional and rooms big, though without balcony what makes it hard for smokers. When you enter the hotel you can see actual ruins of ancient arena which looks really impressive!

Very well located, confortable, big bedrooms, and beautiful spa¡ Staff very proffesional and helpful. We want to repeat. Good breakfast. Nice terrace outdoors and indoors. And the Roman ruins by the hall are an addition. The interior desing in the bedrooms is not its best. They are Ok, but not my taste. Ana. From Spain.

The hotel is very close to the city center and the major attractions. The room was comfortable and spacious with one large bathroom and a separate w.c. The hotel is built on top of an ancient amphitheatre from the Roman area, which makes its entrance really special. About the services, breakfast was relatively poor, definitely not 5 stars and rather...

We have enjoyed our stay in this nice centrally located hotel in Sofia. It is close to the main attractions and churches in the city center. The breakfast was excellent. I highly recommend this place.

Arrived in Sofia for a weekend. The hotel is located close to the center and about 10 minutes walk from the famous cathedral. Check-in was fairly efficient. The room was large in size, clean and adequately stocked for a good class hotel. The hotel is actually built on top of a colosseum from the Roman era. Archaeologists say that the...

Hotel is 15 minutes away from the airport. It's close to the shops and restaurants and a number of attractions. Decor is classic. Rooms are large and clean and wifi connection is good. Toiletries were L'Occitane. Breakfast is limited. Good overall but not European 5 star.

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.
