The hotel itself is very nice and I really like staying there. I did try the Hilton in town however it's to cold. This hotel and their staff is more friendly. Internet works, Their Gym and Spa is wonderful also. The rooms and beds are at an excellent standard and it's totally clean everywhere. What more can you ask for?
However their resturant (Breakfast, lunch & dinner) could be improved. I am missing home cooked food with local ingridients. A Fresh Juice in the morning - not from concentrate - A home made fresh smoothie. It would be great if their kitchen invested in "Brain Food". Would want more fish, whole-grain products, fruits, vegetables. Obiously Primarily fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Pure ingredients with minimal industrial processing, Natural sweeteners.
If you arrive via the Airport. Do youself a favour and order the hotel bus, rather than the taxi's in the airport. Their Taxi's in Sofia is a total rip off. The holidayinn drivers are very friendly and take good care of you.
Overall it's a great hotel and I am a very happy customer and will revisit in a couple of days :-)
