What a Hotel! From the moment I entered to the moment I left, everything was top class. Check in was swift, and service was great. Had some specific room preferences and a request for early check in - both were accommodated without an issue. Rooms are very good - very modern, and immaculately clean. Bathroom as well - everything just...

Lived at this property from 4 Apr - 20 Apr 2014. This is a property for business and not the tourist guest. Having lived in hotels and a Platinum Elite member for many years, IHG has been my #1 choice. It just happened that IHG had a great points sale on this property, 5000 per night. If you are thinking...

Dear Platinum Member Thank you for choosing our hotel for your rather lengthy stay in Sofia.

This hotel is located in the business park of Sofia. Very clean, with a nice swimming pool. Restaurant, breakfast, room are at the level what is expected for such an hotel. The staff is doing his best always for you. I recommend it with no doubt.

I stayed at this hotel recently for 2 nights. It is a beautiful hotel located in a business park. The lobby area is just beautifully decorated.

Good, quiet, comfortable hotel. A bit disappointed that you need to pay in order to access the wifi and you need to pay quite a lot. I'd expect for a hotel in this star range to offer this service in the price. Good fitness facilities & pool, all you need is provided. Decent restaurant, haven't tried the breakfast. Bar open...
