The hotel is located in the very centre of Sofia very close to the main metro station Serdika or the Vitosha Boulevard, the main shopping street in Sofia. Is is situated in an old building that used to be a Communist Party HQ, think of wide marble staircases, chandeliers, spacious lobbies on each floor. Just note that they removed the word Sheraton from the sign on the roof. It just says Sofia Hotel Balkan.
The airport is about 15 - 20 minutes.
The double room was on a smaller side for a five-star hotel. We had a room facing the inner courtyard - presidential palace and the Rotunda of St George built in the 4th century. Nice and quiet.
There is a free wi-fi that works just fine.
Every member of the staff we met was friendly with the single exception of a waiter we met during our breakfast.
There is a night club in the hotel (be ready to be approached if you are single) and a casino.
