First time visiting Sofia, I was so lucky I chose that hotel! Everything looks like magazine photos! The decoration is great, the service is very good and the stuff is really very polite. But the best part of all is the roof garden where you can drink your coffee watching all the city from above! Totally recommend it!

Stepping into the main lobby you can already feel the stylish and exquisite ambiance of the hotel.
The rooftop bar impresses first of all by the scenic view on Nevsky cathedral. The terrace is well designed, live DJ plays an unobtrusive chill-out music. It's a lovely place for a romantic drink or a small intimate celebration.

This was a real gem of a hotel to find. Only a few months old yet staff and systems working faultlessly. Nice (cool, chic, funky) reception and bar, great roof bar with stunning views and cool south-of-France vibe. Plus very unusual stainless pool with sauna, steam room, spa and small but very well equipped gym.

Location is good too, right side of city for airport and 10-15 minute walk to Vitosha Boulevard and other shopping areas.

I loved staying here, as you can tell. Bed was big and comfy with real air conditioning and lots of nice touches in the room - Moulton brown toiletries, big walk in shower, Iilly coffee machine, quality linen and towels. Real wood floor and even the door had a leather coating and was padded!

Only downside is the drinks and food is a little high, but quality and service superb so I think this can be forgiven. If you can get a good rate - stay here.
PS: Oh yes, breakfast is great too - freshly squeeze orange, bottomless coffee and lots of choice at the buffet. Also, room had big screen TV but did not use, and free good-quality Wifi that I did!

Room Tip: The rooms at the back are quietest but front rooms have view of Cathedral. Search the hotel booking sites for deals.

My girlfriend and I booked a table at the Sense rooftop bar to experience the excellent views of Sofia, enjoy a professionally prepared cocktail and enjoy the city for all its vibrancy. The landscape is spectacular and the design of the bar allows for several interrupted view of Sofia. Weather permitting, the roof is pulled back and you get a real summer experience with the night breeze pulling a cool draft through the bar. Unfortunately, the merits of the Sense rooftop bar end here.
The night began when a waiter grunted at us to see what we wanted to order and sulked away when we asked for a few more minutes to decide. The drinks we ordered (Manhattan and Cosmopolitan) were fine, but a superior menu, with a greater quality of preparation and more competitively priced editions of the same drinks can be found at One More Bar or Karkason just a short walk away. After I finished the Manhattan a different waiter managed to drag himself away from a group of teenage socialites drinking champagne and collect my glass. If I was in need of a second average, overpriced mixer in a martini glass, it was not offered. I managed to eventually order a bottle of water. After a twenty minute wait, it was decided that if left to the waiter’s devices, I would be at low risk of dehydration. And so we left, still in search of a 5-star drink and a well serviced bar.
This bar is probably superb if you are the offspring of wealthy businessman or local crime figure who is willing to spend hundreds of leva on magnums of champagne and have attentive bar staff at your disposal. It is not ideal if you are just looking to have a few cocktails or glasses of wine with your friends or partner. It’s a real shame because the poor, unprofessional service completely negated the excellent décor of the bar and its calm and relaxed atmosphere.

I stayed at the Sense hotel for a few night, and really enjoyed the luxurious feel of the place, and the room. It had very comfortable beds, and everything was really clean. Its a very trendy place, in an amazing location! I was close to all the main attractions by foot, and there are great restaurants in the area too.
The best part of staying there is by far the SENSE ROOFTOP BAR!
It has a breathtaking view of the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, and has a very cool and relaxed vibe. The staff was really nice and professional when I was there. I was skeptical because of some poor reviews, but I stayed there mainly because of the location. And I must say I was extremely satisfied with my experience there overall.
