During our visit to Sofia we decided to stay at the Intercontinental Sofia Hotel for several reasons. Two main reasons were COVID measures and location. We were not disappointed at all. The staff is superb, attentive, friendly and helpful. They are also efficient problem solvers. In this respect we would like to highlight the great help we have received from the Concierge team. We are especially grateful to Ivan Grigorov who helped us to organise our trip much better with his good recommendations. If I were to return to Sofia I would definitely choose the same hotel.

Hotel's Favourite
Very modern inside (don’t let the dated exterior fool you). Efficient service. The hotel is very covid aware and the sanitary steps taken were second to none. Felt very safe staying here. Beds comfortable and abundance of pillows for a goods night sleep

IC Sofia is in a good location, near many sights and several big parks. It is a ten minute walk from Vitosha and all the action there - but there is a lot to see and do around the hotel and going over to the V. Very helpful, friendly staff. Good breakfast (and better coffee than many hotels). The cafe/bar on the ground floor is also good for bite and a drink before exploring the city. Very good salads. Can't compliment the friendly staff enough.

I have been to several Intercontinentals around the world and very few rise to the level of gracious hospitality of the Sofia Intercontinental. The hotel is in the most perfect location of the city. The public spaces are clean and nicely designed. My room was huge with a terrace and a spectacular view of the gorgeous architecture of the city. The food was fantastic, both breakfast and dinner. But it was the staff that made this hotel so special. From the first correspondence with Todor, the chief concierge, I knew I was in good hands. Viktor at the front desk was amazingly resourceful. And Kiril, the Executive Assistant Manager, helped in innumerable ways. The restaurant wait staff were great, too. All made me feel at home. IHG can be very proud of this property. It is outstanding!

We've stayed at the Intercontinental in Sofia a few times over the last couple of years. It's always been great but seems to get even better. The welcome is excellent from Kiril and the team and the customer service is of a very high standard indeed. We particularly love the rooms, the quality of the beds, linens, bathrooms and blackout curtains make for an excellent sleep. We always book the club rooms and due to covid the hospitality room is closed and we are hosted with afternoon tea and pre-dinner cocktails in the Floret restaurant which is still a very good experience. We feel very pampered after staying at this hotel and look forward to our next stay very much.
