“Great business hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

The hotel is located near the city center, convenient access from the southern arc of the ring road. Near Kempinski Hotel. Nearby there are many restaurants and pizzerias, supermarket.
The rooms are normal size, very clean and equipped with everything you need. There is wireless internet, and if there is a problem with it from reception can offer free cable connection. Responsive staff. You can consider a variety of breakfast, but also for longer parking spaces. Overall very good.

We stayed in this hotel for one night on our way home and check in at night. But in spite of this there were no problem with rooms that we reserved beforehand. We had standard room on the 1st floor without balcony but with big window. In the bathroom we had clean towels and shampoo.
Breakfast was very good: eggs fried and boiled, oatmeal with raisins and peanuts, honey and jam, ham and cheese, vegetables and fruits, pancakes, butter, bread. I don't agree with previous review of this hotel that breakfast was bad. In comparison with breakfast in France consisting of coffee & croissant, this one was rather big. I also liked that the hotel is clean and staff knows English and ready to help. Also I liked decor on the walls, very nice pictures, respect to the designer of the hotel.
Conclusion: I'd recommend this hotel to my friends.

This is a small hotel located in the Lozenets area of town that caters mainly to businessmen. I chose to stay here as I had some business to take care of at the US Embassy, which is located not too far away. The lobby is nice and pleasant, while most of the staff was polite and helpful. The rooms are fairly spacious and clean. There are a couple of grocery stores nearby which one may find useful. The night we stayed there the sign on the roof of the hotel malfunctioned and it read "Hill Ho" (see photo) which was quite funny. The nearest Metro station is over a mile away but one may want to use a cab anyway as they tend to be fairly cheap. Overall, this is a great value for money for the business traveler and not only!

Great hotel, especially for business trip, huge and confortable rooms.
Really clean and efficient HC.
Not really a huge breakfast compared to the type of hotel, just some bread one cake and some salty food

First when I reached on Airport could not find any ATM to withdraw cash using AMEX card so keep some dollars or local currency with you. Taxi driver found it difficult to find hotel as comparatively new.
Hotel reception is good. Rooms are not so big but good and clean.
Breakfast option is not so good and very limited and mostly same every day.
Laundry service is available in Hotel.
Staff is good and co-operative.
Close to one of the mall.
In my earlier trip, I stayed in BG Accomodation in Parchevich street in a prime area of the city compare to it the hotel is far from city center area.
Overall I would say it is average hotel and there are many other good options available in city. You can check out BG Accomodations.

I stayed in Sofia for a short while, for business purposes, so fast check-in and check-out were crucial. All went well, the staff were helpfull and nice, I got a nice room at the 5th floor. The room was big, clean and although the view was not impressive, I loved the big windows, allowing the sun to come in the room. The room was equiped with tv (lcd), internet, minibar (expensive, but all are), free fruits (nice touch!), bath towels and rope, hair drier, soap and shampoo. So, in general terms, the room was very good.
Breakfast was not so fancy. I do not drink coffee, but my colleagues told me it was terrible, and there was only one type of tea available (by chance, it was a herbal one, my choice anyway for breakfast). The choice of food was not extensive, but I managed to find something.
The hotel is not in the city centre. But taxi fares are low.

There is one secret to success at staying at FPI hotels: calmly explain if there is anything wrong. Each of their hotels seems to be basically well-maintained, with the kind of amenities you would expect from small, above-average-but-not-five-star business hotels. And each of them has friendly reception staff with good (sometimes excellent) English, supervised by a customer-friendly manager.

This stay, I spent the first 3 nights in a room I didn't really like. I wasn't sure it was worth complaining, so I said nothing. Finally one morning I decided to ask. The receptionist spoke with the manager - and was immediately put into a room that is among the nicest I have stayed: good view, nice extra chair, and even non-smoking.

Of course I don't know what would have happened if they had no other room to give me. But based on other experience in other FPI hotels, I think they would have tried to help me somehow. I have always been satisfied with the attention of the staff.

Note: breakfast, business centre and fitness room are all OK, but would be disappointing if that's one of the main things you look for in a hotel.
