“Very good for the price!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

This is a fine hotel but there are a few disadvantages. The first thing is that it can be quite warm and like most Bulgarian Hotels everything/everyone only works half which includes the airco (it zzzzzoooooms more than it cools). The windows can not be opened which can cause some claustrofobic behavior. The second drawback is that the location is not particulary thrilling. It is located in an office area next to Tsarigradsko Chausse which is one of the busiest roads in Sofia. If you want some fun go to the center (cheap & good =Aladin hotel for example) so you can avoid the famous cheating Bulgarian taxidrives (There are also good taxidrivers though). Take genuine "OK-taxi". A trip to the center should not cost more than 10-12 Leva.

The good news is that there are NO cockroaches! There are many "Cockroach-Inn's" (Pliska) in Bulgaria but this hotel is quite clean (for Bulgarian standards that is). And they have breakfast in the morning. And it is very close to the airport. The hotel has a shuttle service. Do not expect any smiling people. In the communistic time it was forbidden to smile and unfortunately it takes ages before the people change back to normal.

The have WiFi which actually works. (Of course all Bulgarian hotels have WiFi but usually it only works in the brochure)

Conclusion: Pretty good for the price!

Room Tip: Take a room with a broken window!

Difficult to find the first time but easy when you know how!
Rooms are large with electric adjustable beds, extensive channels on cable TV and mini fridge.shower room has plenty of towels and enough supplied toiletries.
Room was too hot at end of October - windows can't be opened. Plenty of free parking. WiFi is free but a bit variable. Breakfast is simple but machine coffee is quite good.
Special offer price of 18 euros per room including breakfast is remarkable.
Walls are a bit thin so can hear voices at times

Room Tip: Rooms facing the dual carriageway have a reasonably pleasant view and traffic noise is not a problem

One of dirties and awfull hotels I've ever stayed. Location- hotel is relatively close from the airport- about 10 minutes drive by car.Romms are dirty- not cleaned at all, ed linen with holes, strange smell, furnitures designed rather for hospital not for the hotel. Restaurant- it wouldn't be called even a bar, dirty, smell everywhere. Breakfast- only white cheese and something looking as a jam, coffe anly with sugar- maybe they're trying to recompensate the inconvenience for all of their guests. You can make a better choice and find a lot of better hotels with the better ballance between quality and price.

We've stayed for 1 night at 17 euros per room. The rooms are big enough, you have a pool, a sauna and a fitness center included in the price (we didn't use them, though). Also there is breakfast included. You have a minibar, flat TV with cable, wired Internet and air conditioned. You have all the conditions for a decent stay. There is also a shopping mall nearby (5 mins walk).
On the other side, the walls are a bit thin (we ca hear noises from other room, especially in the bathroom), and the breakfast is not so tasty :)
But hey, for the 17 euros per night, this is a hell of a deal!

First your taxi has to find the hotel. Then you get a surprise. The hotel is just over 3 years old and just off the main road to the airport. The rooms are spacious and Wifi is complimentary. Initial appearance is a bit bare and yet the pictures are bright and original oils. There is a complimentary shuttle to the airport. The restaurant is adequate, there is a terrace, an outdoor pool and massage on the second floor. No more is needed for an overnight near the airport and the price is a super bargain. Certainly quite a find and I shall be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the mountains
