Take the free city walking tour.
Explore the neighborhood of this hotel -- good shopping, bakeries, internet cafe, and restaurants.
We walked around Sofia -- it is an easy walking city.
We did attend a concert in their cultural arts center -- small concert recital, but enjoyable.

We discovered this family hotel on a small side street on the way from a restaurant nearby. We are allways looking for something more private than the usal boring chain hotels for our short business visits.
The staff is more than friendly, they are, I would say, devoted and not just the day shift, but late in the evening as well. Sparkling clean. The rooms are spacious, restaurant downstairs very good. I highly recommend this place both for business travellers and families, since it is right round the corner from the central streets.

We were there for a week, in this very small hotel in the city center of Sofia. The hotel is rated 3 stars, but we had the pleasure to enjoy a world-class service. The rooms are old-fashioned, but clean and no bad smell (I am very sensitive). The hotel is quiet, the restaurant underground. Breakfast is disapointing: cold scrambled eggs and sausages. Little choice and everything gone by 10am. The staff at the reception is incredible: they solved all our requests (stamps, money change, handling our numerous messages, telephone switchboard... like perfect assistant secretaries at our disposal). For our business trip, it was really a plus that we could not expect to find in a five-star hotel. The hotel is centrally located, walking distance from restaurants (like the perfect HAPPY GRILL). Even if I'm used to stay in upscale hotels, this refreshing hotel was a success. I would recommand to consider it, despite it's middle-range level.

This hotel is located in a side street but very close to the city centre amenities and transport.
The staff are very pleasant and very helpful. The receptionists all spoke good English.
Our room was large with an excellent bathroom and the supply of toiletries was the most we have ever come across.
We arrived at Sofia airport late at night and had to take ataxi from the taxi rank. Mistake!! We got ripped off and paid 63 leva. The return taxi, booked by the hotel cost 8.60 leva!. Book a taxi via the internet before leaving.
Next door to this hotel is an excellent Bulgarian restaurant. The menu itself is worth the night out!
Generally this hotel is primarily used by business folk.

Good location in the city center. Clean, spacious rooms. The staff was very helpful. They even provided us with free umbrellas in a rainy day. The roooms have internet access, which is however not among the fastest. My only complaint would be about the breakfast, which was rather poor and unimaginative. Otherwise, the restaurant food was ok, although the restaurant staff is a bit apathetic (differently from the other staff in the hotel, which was very helpful). As a whole, I had a very positive experience with the hotel, and would definitely recommend it, especially if you are planning a short stay or a business trip.

Decent location, although not as central as some. Airport pickup rate (€25) is a joke, as a taxi costs about €7. They are profitting on tourists fear of being ripped-off by a "dodgy" taxi. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was poor, especially as we arrived at exactly 10am. There was hardly any food leftover. The restaurant was decent, with a nice garden area in which to eat. The rooms were just what we required, and were clean & spacious. I would recommend this hotel.
