“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

From check in to check out, the service was on a par with a luxury hotel. Reception staff and bellboy a fount of knowledge and more than willing to assist. What impressed me was the fact that fluent English was spoken. The standard of cleanliness of bedroom and bathroom was exceptional, down to the TV remote control. Ample and fulfilling breakfast. Willing and cheerful staff without being obsequious. I bought a bottle of wine from a wine merchant outside the hotel, but could not open it without a corkscrew. I called reception who immediately sent someone up to my room with an appropriate wine opener. I have stayed in some of the best hotels overseas and this hotel is hard to beat. I would have no hesitation in staying here again. The amenities the hotel possesses are first class. Nothing is too much trouble for the superb staff. The hotel has trained some really special individuals and is lucky to employ such dedicated persons. The chambermaid who cleaned the room on a daily basis missed nothing. Warm and very comfortable. If I employed any more superlatives, I would risk being disbelieved!
Sofia is an intriguing city that would be simply wonderful if it was not for institutional corruption that has siphoned off EU funds and rendered the city below the standard of many capital cities in Africa and Asia. This situation must be reversed. In my opinion, not enough is done to attract foreign visitors to Sofia and the Mayor of Sofia and the government are to the blame.

Room Tip: Quiet throughout owing to the type of glazing used. Spa (due for completion 2013) is not in existe...

I stayed in Sofia lots of times and this time I went to Best Western Premier Thracia Hotel and had a wonderful stay over there. I went together with a friend of mine for 3 nights. They have garage car parking for around 10,- € per night which is quite good in this location because parking is always pretty limited in this area.
The Hotel stuff was really helpful and nice, we could stay a little bit longer and didn´t need to check out exactly at 12.00!
The breakfast is really nice - I loved it! Everything you need and really good quality. Late check-in is also no Problem due to 24hrs reception.
The price for the rooms is also really fair, we stayed in the superior category which was really good. perfect rooms, nice decoration, everything you need - really had a perfect stay and I will go there next time for 100%!

Room Tip: if available take the superior room in 2nd floor!

This hotel was perfect for our stay in Sofia because is near the center of the city and it has private parking (we arrive in Sofia by our car).
The conditions were excellent an the hotel personal was very nice.

This hotel is to international standard, which is not always the case in Bulgaria. Rooms are well equipped, with all amenities, including coffee service. Note that in the transitional time of year, there is neither heating nor cooling, so operating windows are really needed-and the Best Western has them. This is an omission that we found troubling in a previous stay at the Grand Sofia. Breakfast is a very good buffet and includes a menu with many more to-order selections. Location is central and a short walk to the shops, restaurants and bars on the pedestrian walking street. For us, the best choice in Sofia.

The hotel has a good location just off the main shopping street.

Nice room and breakfast unfortunately spoiled by the following :
1/ the room was way too hot despite the fact that the room's individual heating was fully switched off and window left wide open. And curiously, outside temperature was less than 10°C
2/ my room's floor carpeting was not as clean as I would have expected
3/ could hear every noise from the adjoining rooms
4/ tea, coffee etc. supplies were not replenished during my entire 5 night stay
5/ reception did not book my excursion with the requested agency
6/ breakfast room staff unable to cope when too many guests show up for breakfast at the same time. One morning I waited 15 minutes for coffee

Although we stayed here just for a night, we had a very good experience at this hotel. Almost all the major tourist attractions are at a walking distance and shopping street too. The room was big with all the necessary amenities. Good value for the price!
