I spent only 24 hours in Sofia. Now, from the time prespective, it was a good choice; close to the main street, calm place and good price-quality ballance. I was really glad. Very good staff at reception desk; Mr Ivo and Dido; helped me a lot with good recommendation of the place, where I could try bulgarian cuisine; big room, nice bathroom, very good breakfast. The highest note.

The Best Western Hotel Thracia was booked for my fist night on my recent travel to Sofia. Actually, it was part of my flight & hotel package and I did not expect too much by the name "Best Western". As a regular BW guest and as a Diamond member I got not always the best impression about these hotels. However, this proofed to be wrong this time. The BW Thracia is a hidden gem. It is more like a boutique hotel than like an ordinary BW hotel. The upgraded me to a nice suite with a very comfortable bed. It's location can hardly be beat. The hotel is in the middle of downtown. High quality of hotel, room, and also the breakfast was a pleasant surprise. Nice staff members here and there and it made my stay really enjoyable.

When it comes to the transport there was no public transport on my arrival after midnight. So, I ordered a pick-up from the hotel via email some days before I arrived at Sofia airport. The charge was 15 $ and it was a driver who belongs to the hotel. That way I did not need to take a taxi.

Pros:
- excellent location
- fair rate, WiFi included
- good breakfast

Cons:
- I booked double bed but got twin beds. Had to spend the first night in that room and change it the day after.
- Wifi signal was strong in some rooms but not strong enough (especially for iPod Touch) in other room

Room Tip: make sure you have strong WiFi signal in the room

The Best Western has perhaps the best location in Sofia, located half a block from the pedestrian street of Bul Vitosha. The area of the city is packed with cafes, restaurants, shopping and people watching. I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights, and it was fantastic. I would recommend staying on the 7th floor where the apartment and suite are located. I stayed one night in each room and was blown away at how big they were, for an incredible value. Each room has a full wrap around deck, and enormous square footage. I would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Stay on the 7th floor!

what one can say when everything in the hotel was very good: location, staff, cleanliness, amenities, prize, breakfast, room service.
The room didn't cause me to call "wow". But that's modern and updated place, with free Wi Fi etc. very friendly and helpful staff and perfect location.
We had a superior room which was very spacious and comfortable.

Room Tip: a superior room is very spacious and comfortable.
