Reviewed August 14, 2012

Nice hotel, very quiet and we had beautiful sunsets from our window. Good breakfast, free transfer to the airport (one way). 2 bus stations from the zoo, easy taxi drive to cable lifts or centre of the city. One problem with it is there's nowhere to eat out around but it's easy to get a taxi (will cost you 5 leva max). They offer to order food for you in a delivery place called O'Shipka - DON'T DO THAT!!! I've never eaten anything as bad as this! Stuff very helpful though and can give you some information and maps on request.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights (landing in Bulgaria and leaving) and were extremely satisfied both times. The hotel is very clean, the rooms are reasonably large, the staff is great and best of all the price was relatively cheap. The rooms are equipped with free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, TV (with a good selection of channels) and a mini bar. We were traveling with a 7 month old baby and when we called the hotel they gladly placed a crib in the room. What made me love this hotel was that when we landed in Bulgaria we found out that our luggage had not made the flight from Paris, so the free dental kits that were placed in the bathrooms were a huge hit with us. We ordered food from the room service and although for Bulgaria the food was a bit pricey the quality was very good. Also had a couple of drinks in the restaurant and the service was great. The breakfast was wonderful and another sign of an awesome hotel: when we told the front desk that our departure flight was earlier than the time they served breakfast, they made for us 3 bags to take to the airport. We travel to Bulgaria a lot and I think we have found our hotel from now on. In spirit of fairness however, two negatives that we encountered were 1)one of the two rooms that we got during our second stay smelled of smoke although the room was clearly marked no smoking. 2) Although the distance from the hotel to airport is short (as crow flies), the traffic to and from the hotel can be very heavy so plan accordingly.

Clean rooms, make sure you ask for a room facing the back as the front ones are very noisy because of the hifh traffic on the main road. You need a taxi to reach the city centre. Restaurant is not great, but it can be an alternative if you don't have he energy to go out. Order salads or grilled food, avoid strange souces....

I have stayed at the BROD 3 times while passing to or from Bansko sky resort. Staff have always been ploite, rooms are of great value considering the price. Taxi's arrive on time. Not suitable for city walking, though some open parks nearby the diplomatic quarters. The bar and restaurant has plenty of space. Breakfast buffet style. The sad part though is that the smoking area is next to the food instead of at the far end, but I expect new smoking rules will take care of that.A claen and tidy hotel.

Room Tip: Book early

I have stayed at this hotel many times. Mostly just for a night to catch a much to early flight from SOF airport. Only some 15 min drive to the Terminals.
The staff is very friendly and speaks good English.
The breakfast buffet is very good. Not too far off a 5 star hotel breakfast buffet, compared to the Sofia Holiday Inn for example, which costs an arm and a leg extra if you take even just one sausage from the hot breakfast items.
If you have to leave in the middle of the night they make you a simple to go breakfast.

The rooms are modern and clean, if you want to sleep in for a bit, traffic noise can be a bother.
They will also park your car and have it ready for your departure if the car park is full.
A very decent place to stay!

Don't be put off by the hotel being outside the city centre, it is on a bus route and not expensive to reach by taxi. My room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The shower/toilet room was small and the shower had no cubicle but there was a shower curtain and the floor drained and dried quickly so it would be a petty criticism. It is on a busy road but I managed to sleep well. Breakfast was continental but plentiful, a good variety of cereals, meats, cheeses, boiled egg, toast, pastries, yoghurt etc. The big plus however was the friendly and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. I asked about shops as I had forgotten toothpaste and I was immediately given a small tube of toothpaste. I checked out at 4.30am and was given a "breakfast bag" to take with me. I would certainly stay at the Hotel Brod again.
