I liked the central location and loved the king size bed. The room and bathroom were clean and I received towels regularly. The windows could only be opened vertically which I didnt like. But everything else was fine

The hotel is very successful in terms of cleanliness and hygiene. Being close to the city center is a great advantage. The hotel charges 30 leva for the underground parking garage in its own building. If you want to use another parking garage 300 meters away, the hotel pays for this parking lot. Receptionists are helpful. Especially the manager of Hotel Central gave me a lot of support as an extra helpful and hospitable person. Special thanks to him.

We came to hotel late at night and there was no guy at the reception desk. After 5 minutes he appeared and gave us the key. I'd like to mention that as we were 2 persons, he gave us only 1 key card but after we asked him for the second one he made an exception for us. Overall, room was good - clean, comfortable, with a/c. The location of hotel is very good; you can reach city center in 10 minutes easily. In the morning we had a chance to make check out with a friendly lady. And there was also a funny and friendly guy (who manages spa service), who helped us with our request. And we were also surprised about good English of staff. I can recommend this hotel but maybe not for a long staying

Excellent location for a city break, within walking distance from the main tourist attractions. The restaurant was a nice surprise, with very tasty dishes at lunch. Underground parking was also available.
