This was an excellent modern hotel in the heart of Sofia at a reasonable price. We only drove up to Sofia for two days and one night so we wanted to see as much as possible. The hotel was within walking distance of most central attractions. It was quiet, comfortable, had a great breakfast, and close by parking at a reasonable cost. The room was excellent and the staff was very helpful. We would stay again and recommend the hotel without reservation.

I've just spent four days on a work trip to Sofia, a first ever visit and spent three nights in this central hotel. It was great.

The hotel is small - 60 bedrooms, but feels muuch more initmate because the rooms are located in two spearate wings, so no long corridors of rooms. It is modern and spotless throughout.

All of the staff were very welcoming without overdoing it - they genuinely wanted to be helpful, epsecially the front desk. As good as I've seen.

The lobby is small but modern and it has a small coffee bar/bar area to one side. There is also a TV/lounge area to the rear of the lobby.

My room was spacious, comfortable, spotless and quiet. there are no long corridors of rooms as the rooms are in two separate areas of the hotel. I was on the third floor and it had only six or seven rooms on that floor, in that section. The room had a lovely en-suite, a tiny but lovely balcony. My room was 301 and had no rooms either side, so very quiet and rear-facing. All the 01 rooms are like this I think.There are six floors in all and a lift to each.

Breakfast was a very good buffet, continental style, with fruit, cereals, fries, breads, cgheeses, salmon etc and the lunch I had was very good also. I didnt use the restaurant for dinner. the hotel has a small sauna which costs 5 euro and must be requested, but was great.

The location is excellent, 5 minutes form the Alexandr Nevski Cathedral and just down the street form the parlaiment building, but on a quiet back street. its also near restaurantsand shops.

The location and the city centre felt safe at all times. I was advised to be aware of pickpockets, but thats about the extent of it. I felt very safe waling back to my hotel at midnight and i met some very friendly people. Vigilance is sensible however.

There are pockets of profound poverty and I occasionally saw people foraging in the wheelie bins but I saw no begging or rough sleepers. perhaps they stay away form the centre.

Issues? I found the duvet too small for the bed and the pillows a little uncomfortable and the bar proces are a tad high - maybe twice the locsal going rate. But I would highly recommend the hotel - more a business hotel than a romantic getaway, but very good indeed.

Room Tip: the rooms ending in 01 have no rooms either side and have a quiet if tiny balcony
