Likes: Clean, spacious, comfortable hotel rooms. Good location. Dislikes : 1. There was always a smell in our bathroom which we realized would go away when we would switch OFF the ventilator !! 2. Slow wifi. Okay for phone but not for laptop ! 3. They provided breakfast boxes for us because the kitchen was closed in the days we were staying. The food in the boxes was old ! for eg. the bread of the sandwich was hard and sort of smelt.

The hotel is centrally located however the attitude of the entire staff is terrible. They gave us a room that the tub seemed to be clogged and they didn’t do anything for the entire two days. The breakfast is so limited if you are not used to the eastern countries breakfast of just cucumber tomatoes pork and they also only offer water tea or water. The continental option is a croissant and nothing else. I offer to pay for my egg whites and they just told me no because it was not on the menu. Very harsh reactions and absolutely no customer service on any of the employees either from the restaurant or the hotel, same attitudes as when I came on the early eighties.

Nice rooms, Excellent breakfasts, but although most of the staff were helpful, there was one in particular with attitude. The waiters and waitresses were very helpful and spoke excellent English. The walk to town was not short but not really far enough for a taxi either. The boulevard one walks down could have been more attractive, especially after dark. I suppose if we had not stayed here we would never have seen the Lion Bridge.

The price of €50 per night was reasonable and the two single beds were relatively comfortable. We had a balcony with a great view and although the shower head was originally broken without having to ask the hotel fixed it before our second night. Extending our stay by one night was easy and staff were polite. The breakfast for me was ok but a fairly limited choice, if it was cheaper to book a room without breakfast I would recommend eating elsewhere in Sofia including ordering a slice of pizza from across the road. I will probably stay here again in the future.
