I was very surprised by the high standard of the HI in Sofia. The room was clean and well laid out. the bathroom with a separate shower and bath excellent.
The room service was both tasty and generous.
Staff were extremely helpful and always a pleasure to deal with.
I normally stay in the Sheraton in the center of Sofia, but my work was on the business park and this hotel is perfect location at a good price.

i was travelling by car to Bucharest and a stop in Sofia was expected.
i tried to find an hotel a bit outside of the town in order to avoid the in and out traffic.
it was a pleasent surprise.
the hotel was nice clean comfortable and staff very helpful !!
they suggested me to use their basement parking.
the restaurant in a small terasse worth every penny.
A tiny probleme with wifi-use (mac ipad) can not chaneg my opinion... AAAA
Definetely one of the best places to stop on the Athens-Bucharest road trip,

I was on business trip in Sofia, spent few nights in HolidayInn. As I'm quite often travelling, I didn't expect a 5* hotel as a Holiday Inn. It was a good suprise!
Nice hotel, good service, helpful staff.
Wonderful breakfast, nice restaurant with a big terrace, you can enjoy your morning coffee on the terrace. Excellent gym, with swimming pool.
Overall I highly recommend to anybody, who is travelling to Sofia in the surrounding business park next to the hotel.
WIFI is expensive, this is the only negative point.

I often stay in Sofia for business as well as much of Europe and I must say this is my second most favourite hotel in Europe. The staff are very pleasant and helpful, the rooms are comfortable and the food is great. All together a great hotel although the location is not great. Room comes with wi-fi and breakfast so not like the rip off from other larger business hotel chains. I have had dinner here alot and the food is great and staff are attentive and pleasant. Worth staying here if you are on business.

This hotel is modern, clean, and has nice amenities. Best of all, however, is its staff. These people all go the extra mile and make you feel like home. Strongly recommend for both business and family stays.

My husband and I stayed here for two days on the 13-14 March for two nights after our regular skiing trip in Pamporovo. We have been to this hotel before and were made to feel so welcome that we always like to visit it again. This time we used the spa area which we hadn't done previously and were impressed at the ultra modern facilities available. The staff are always so helpful and nothing is too much trouble. When we stayed there was a traditional Bulgarian evening on for the first night so we decided to partake of that. We were shown and explained all the different buffet style selections from a member of staff in full Bulgarian dress and the food was excellent and plentiful. We will back Ani! Many thanks to all your staff, Alex and Andy.
