“Good room and good food”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Very comfortable room (Junior suite) but no hot water in the bath or shower!!!!
Good food in the restaurant and VERY helpful front desk staff.
Shuttle to the airport good but expensive for such a short drive.

We stayed at this hotel several times. The attitude of the staff is warm and personal. Special requests responded quickly and our stay was pleasant and businesslike.
The hotel is located near the airport, close to business area and a 10-minute drive to the city center.
I highly recommend.

The hotel is very nice, located next to the huge expo centers BUT it is quite far from the city centre. I walked 30 minutes to reach the first mall. If you like walking the city you are visiting, or not plan using the extremely cheap taxis, pick another hotel.

Room Tip: Fifth floor was quiet.

Hotel for business, good location only 4 km from international airport, and little bit far from down town. Quality of room is acceptable, restaurant and breakfast not tested. I suggest for a short stay

Bulgaria is a country where things are progressing at a very fast rate. Hotels such as this are becoming very twenty-first century in the services and luxury they provide, but there is still an element of the old about them. This is reflected in the decor of the hotel, but looking past this, this is an excellent four star, with a smart atmosphere and well apportioned accommodation. Particularly liked the "Pillow Menu", which although our arrival was late they still managed to accommodate, providing just the right kind of Pillow for a good nights sleep. Breakfast was good, and the waitress particularly friendly, playing with my 2 year old son.
We used the hotel as a stopover after a late flight and before a car journey to our mountain apartment. We were at the hotel within 10 minutes of loading the hire car (hotel has its own transfers and hire car service if required) and relaxing in our room within another ten.
When we do the same trip to our property, this hotel will be considered, and may only choose another as we like to look at a variety of hotels in order to advise family and friends of options to stay in.

Room Tip: Higher the better, and not on the road side if possible.

Stayed for 3 nights at the end of March. Stayed 2 nights when we arrived in Sofia and then another night at the end of the trip before early flight home the next day. About 10 mins from the airport which was great. Ample parking, great staff and a lovely room. Check in was easy and fast. The staff were very nice, very helpful. Room was very clean and spacious. Breakfast consisted of a buffet; bread, 2 types of cereal, yoghurts, fruit, hot dishes (Eggs, Sausages, bacon). There was also pastries, coffee, many different varieties of tea and juice - Great start to the mornings. We were about 10mins away from Sofia Center and it cost about 6-8 lev to go one way by taxi depending on the time of the day/evening. We had a really good stay here and would stay here again when in Sofia.

Great location for the exposition center.
Nice rooms and caring staff.
Restaurant needs work and as this hotel is in the middle of nowehere a poor restaurant brings down the whole experience.
Soon the metro will open at Expo Center and then one can stay in town and get to the expo quickly so this hotel needs to really improve as its sole competitive advantage (location) is about to disappear.
