“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Stayed in the suite - lovely room, high ceilings, very comfortable and quiet. No external views but then looking at other travellers pictures maybe that's no bad thing! Bathroom ok. Staff extremely helpful. Provided free lift to and from a restaurant with which they have an 'arrangement' but it was excellent and very good value - I'd recomend it on its own terms although I can't remember the name. Excellent location - can't fault the place really. Breakfast good, didn't try the in house food otherwise. Internet excellent and free. Minibar well stocked and reasonable. A very good place to stay.

Room Tip: Spoil yourself and book the suite - there aren't many places left in the world where you can aff...

Well situated in the city centre and within walking distance of the main sights. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean but not on the large side. An excellent breakfast is also provided. If you are looking for a central hotel at a reasonable price I would recommend this hotel.

We got this hotel through the taxi driver who took us from the Bus Terminal near midnight. We could negociate the rate and the room, which was big and beautifully furnished and decorated, according to the building renovated old style. Breakfast was included and had not many choices but all was fresh and good quality, especially the express coffee. All staff was very helpful and was obvious they did their best to our comfort. Location is excellent in Sophia. I would certainly stay there again if I travel to Bulgary.

Not discouraged by some bad travellers'reviews, I booked and found the best ever hotel in the center, run by the kindest and most prepared staff, so helpful when my luggage hadn't come for three days. My room was large and spacious, romantic style, dark red and cream-colored tapestries, the bed and mattress were excellently supporting and felt like new. The bathroom was the biggest I have ever found in an eastern European country. Breakfast was good and abundant, restaurant staff always welcoming and helpful.Facilities such as two banks and the central roads and markets were all close by! I highly recommend this lovely place, and already have booked for next months.

Rooms 205 and 305 on the 2nd and 3rd floor look out at the (ugly, dirty) building next door so they have frosted windows.Not very nice at all. 405 has a view of the roof of the building next door towards the mountain.

Overall though this is a very nice place to stay. Excellent central location, a couple of blocks to the market and shops. No problem walking everywhere. I didn't notice much street noise though it is in the middle of the city so you may get some.

Great showers, free WiFi in the hotel (and in much of Sofia too). comfortable beds, the cheaper rooms aren't huge but find for a single or couple.

Would definitely recommend it and stay there again as long as I didn't get one of the two rooms with no view....

Room Tip: Rooms 205 and 305 are nice and quiet but the windows are frosted for a reason so don't open them...

This hotel is lovely with its old style charm. The elevator is quite small, enough for two people and two small luggage. The room was quite nice with seating, coffee maker, a different area for the bed, large bath in a large bathroom. I read previously that some people had problems with the windows not being transparent - which wasn't a problem. At least we were able to open the windows for ventilation. The hotel had a bar on the second floor where you can smoke inside and drink all night long. Luckily no one was there and we were able to enjoy the space and area al to ourselves. The staff was extremely helpful as they could. Overall a good experience and great location.
