We stayed for seven nights as a part of an adoption of a little girl. The hotel was very accommodating to our needs. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed as a family of four in a suite. It had a king bed and a fold out couch that made into a standard double. The kitchenette didn't have silver ware or plates, but did have a glass and four coffee cups. This hotel was located on a quite side street within walking distance of most downtown sites and the bus routes to get to Mt Vitosha and Boyana. The restaurant had good food at very reasonable prices. The city trash is collected at the corner at about 1 am each weekday morning; again a little loud as the truck drives through the street. No worries really. We had a great stay!! We highly recommend if you are staying for a night or a week.

We have stayed there twise; the first time we had a suite, the last time a standard room. Both vere very good value prices taken into consideration. The suite was spacious with a separate livingroom with a workdesk, a sitting area and a simple kitchenette. The standard room was on the small side, but sufficient enough. The rooms were well cleaned every day. We were not bothered with noise of any kind in the night, as there is little traffic close to the hotel.
As far as we have experienced, breakfast in Bulgaria is quite simple in medium range hotels like Niky. But the choise in Niky is comparatively good, and far more than what we have in our everyday life at home.
The hotel is within easy walking distance to most major attractions, and to the shopping area.
The staff were helpfull and friendly enough, and were allways at our service when we asked for something.
Hotel Niky has a very nice restaurant, which in our experience was much used by locals. This made the atmosphere nice. The food was good and the prices very reasonable.
The one negative thing we have to say about Niky, is that the beds in both rooms we have tested were not very comfortable. In the suite the doubblebed was on the narrow side, so we booked a room with twin beds the next time we visited the place. All the matresses were very hard, so if you have a problem with that, you might reconsider. The second time we brought a thin campingmatress which is blown air into, put it on top of the bed and this solved the problem to a certain extent.

Hotel Niky is in the city center of Sofia with very good price-quality ratio. The hotel is very nice, cleen and it also has a restaurant with good food. Breakfast is good. In case you want to stay here a reservation well ahead is needed as they have limited number of rooms, especially small rooms. Most of the rooms are apartment types with kitchenett and separate living area. This would be my top choice in Sofia for business or leasure as well! Shoping and touristic places are also nearby.

Stayed almost a week there, the hotel is centrally placed which makes it easy to just walk to the shopping street and/or means of transport.

- The rooms have a really strange smell, I suppose it's the carpet. You feel it when you enter a room.

- The reception was not so helpful, not willing to help/assist alot.

- The breakfast looked good in the beginning. I realised that much of the food was used for the next days also.!!!!

We got bored of the same stuff again and again, while the last days could not eat anything.

I do not care if it was near Xmas, they should have FRESH FOOD EVERY DAY.

- The coffee was AWFUL. One of the worst coffees I ever had.

- Rooms were clean, hotel is quiet in general and warm. We could sleep nicely.

- Haven't tried the restaurant, so I do not know about it.

I do not know if I will go to this hotel again, the location is a huge plus for me, but the rest were not even relevant with their prices.

They should shape up.

Hotel Niky is an excellent no-fuss hotel in the centre of Sofia. Not glamorous, but efficient, friendly and comfortable. If you like Bulgarian food then you will like the hotel's restaurant too. Best value for money to be had in Central Sofia.

We stayed at the Niky at both ends of a holiday to Egypt...the staff couldn't have been more friendly & helpful and the food in the restaurant was delicious. The rooms were modern & spotless with all the amenities you could expect from a city hotel. Nothing bad to say about it at all.

We stayed in Hotel Niky for our first two nights in Bulgaria. My overall impressions of the hotel was that it was professionally run and clean with all the necessary facilities in the room, including tea/coffee making facilities, big television, hairdryer and a 'What's on in Sofia' magazine on the bedside table, which was really useful for us as we hadn't brought a proper guide book with us. The hotel room was large, as was the bathroom, and there was a huge window/patio door which let in loads of light in the afternoon and opened out onto the roof above the restaurant, which would have been nice for sitting outside in warmer weather (however I think this was the only room opening onto the roof).

Overall things I liked about Hotel Niky:
- There was a communal computer for guests to use in the downstairs lobby, which was useful as we didn't have our own laptop
- Large bedroom and bathroom including everything we needed
- Helpful and professional staff, one of whom printed us out a timetable for trains going to Plovdiv
- Clean and professionally run
- Breakfast was pretty good, with a large selection of fruit and salad items, and an omelette if you wanted one. However if you like your English breakfast tea in the mornings then bring your own as theirs is awful!- I stuck to the herbal teas.
- Good location right by the centre, as well as close to lots of restaurants and cafes

Things I thought could have been improved:
- Hotel room was quite cold at times, and our heater didn't seem to work (this was very noticeable as it was really cold during our stay in Sofia- about 3 degrees Celsius)
- Some of the staff, although helpful, could have been slightly friendlier and more welcoming
- I felt that the decor of the bedroom was a bit bland and impersonal

Room Tip: Room 204 has a big window and balcony/rooftop (but is a bit cold!- check if the heater works)
