“The Tsar died over this place”
Reviewed November 5, 2008

A Bulgarian friend had heard of this place through her company. This place is awful. Dirty, smelly, and filthy. Clean linen could not be found, the owner or manager was filthy and reeked of alochol. He charged me 40 euros, my traveling companion 40 lev (an illegal practice).

THe location is questionable and as the previous post said, this should not even be listed here but only as warning. Be afraid, even the bugs are of this old musty dump.

I have been in this small hotel (Tsar Asen) last month for few days and I was really delighted. The location is great - right in the centre of the city and you can get anywhere really quick by foot. The hotel seems recently renovated and the room where I was with my husband had a nice bedroom, airconditioning (very necessary as the weather was hot) and a view towards the street and the central park The service people in the hotel were nice and helpful.

I reserved a room following advice in one of the E.Europe travel guides and couldn't have been more disappointed. This is actually a private house with a few rooms parading as a hotel. Filthy bathrooms, bugs, an extremely rude flip-flopped sweaty owner on site. Spent two weeks in Bulgaria and never encountered anything worse than this so-called "hotel". The place has since been taken off the mentioned travel guides and I am surprised to spot it here. I was comparing reviews for real hotels for an upcoming visit to Sofia and feel it's my responsibility to post a warning. This place can really spoil your stay. Best left avoided.
