We went to Sofia for 4 days... We have choosen this Hotel because was in the center (very close to the main street). The room was quiet also because the room has a double door so you don't hear anything from outside the door. Big enought and confortable. A bit hard the mattress. The room and toilet was clean and the room cleaning service was nice.
The breakfast was ok... most of all salad thing (that personally I prefer). We have tried the restourant also because we had a discount code of 10%. The food was good (just a bit too much Oliy). The proce was aboslutelly good (we paied about 28 euro for a dinner for 2). The funny thing is that they give you a paper where you can express you vote for the food, service and so on.... but.... waiters...precompile it for you with all goods ;-) So is an Unusefull thing. 8 for the place, 7 1/12 for the food, 6 for waiters. People at reception is kind and explain you everything you need to go around sofia. We suggestyou to ask at receptionist if you think to book a taxi. So you are sure you book a not scame company.

The hotel has a nice welcoming lobby and reception. They speak English and one of the reception staff was extremely nice and helpful, having lived and trained in the US. My room was large (they had made a mistake and put me in a larger room than I reserved, but didn't charge the difference), but had an unfortunate bad sewer smell coming from the bathroom that the receptionist said was common in several rooms and there was nothing they could do about it, just suggested I put the bath mat over the drain, which I did, along with keeping the fan on and door shut and it made the room more bearable. The room was modern, well outfitted and clean, but the pillows were either hard or lumpy and not comfortable. The computer in the lobby wasn't working the whole three days we were there and they were waiting for a technician to repair it, but there is free wifi everywhere. There is a lift and the hotel is quiet and comfortable. It was a good value in a good location and with a really good inexpensive restaurant that was the highlight.

I stayed at this hotel over weekend of 18/19/20 October with 5 friends. We checked in on Friday afternoon and the receptionist was very friendly and made us very welcome on our first trip to Bulgaria. First impressions were very good.
The hotel and room was very clean and tidy. The only downside to the room was the intermittent cold and hot water supply in the shower - one second it was too hot, the next second it was too cold.
The hotel is very central and is very close to the major transport links. More importantly, it is also close to the great JJ Murphy's Irish bar. It is also very close to the main shopping area. The breakfast had a very basic choice of cereals, cold meats and hot food but it was sufficient to set you up for the day.
This hotel was perfect for our weekend break and ideally located. It was also great value for money and I would have no hesitation in staying there again.

I stayed at the hotel on two separate occasions during a tour around Bulgaria. This is well positioned, a mere five minute walk from main shops but situated in a quiet leafy street. Reception was very friendly and even when arriving earlier in the morning (11am) I only had to wait 15 minutes for my room to be ready. Both rooms were clean and very large, with comfortable beds and excellent shower. A nice touch was tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms. The courtyard restaurant at the back of the hotel was an excellent feature, serving excellent food and drinks. It did seem to cater for larger parties however; as a single traveller the available smaller tables were only in the centre of the complex where service was less frequent. Breakfast was very good, with good range of hot and cold foods. Overall I would certainly recommend this to other travellers as a good hotel to start a trip in Bulgaria.

Room Tip: Room with balcony was on the fifth floor.

Apart from a slight hiccup on our arrival (we had to wait 40 mins before checking in due to a mix up with bookings), our stay at the hotel Niky was excellent. Very central - it's a 2 minute walk to the main pedestrianised area, clean, and lovely area for drinks and dining out the back gardens of the hotel.

The apartment was massive, very spacious with all the required facilites. Staff very polite and helful.

Overall, an excellent stay

Room Tip: Apartments are fantastic value for money!

Stayed just the one night at Hotel Niky and was very satisfied. The room was lovely and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was beautiful and everything was really clean. My room Watson the 4th floor and I was not bothered by noise from the street etc. There was a wide choice of dishes on the menu and I would say the service was good. The location was excellenT. i was very pleased and will stay there again when in Sofia as I think it was a good hotel for a fair price.

We stayed for 2 nights in Niky hotel. It is situated near the city center and near a metro station, so it was perfect for our small city visit. The breakfast was nice and the staff was very helpful to all our questions about the city. The only negative point was that the Wifi was not functioning on the 4th floor, something that had been mentioned in previous comments as well. I asked to be moved in a floor with wifi and fortunatelly there was a last room left on the 5th floor.
