We spent 4 nights in the hotel for a city break. It is 20-30 minutes by car from the airport and a pre booked executive transfer costs around £22. The hotel is located between 2 metro stops and you can get to/from the airport for 1.60 lev per person each way (@ 60p) We had pre booked our pick up...

Fabulous large room, excellent to have a nice bath too. There were 2 occasional tables and 5 chairs, very spacious indeed but wardrobe same size as any other hotel. My one grievance was the lack of an iron, yes they have an expensive ironing service but I like to iron my own clothes so I couldn't wear a couple of...

Great interior, amazing rooms, nice bar & restaurant. The stuff was very helpful! The hotel has a very good layout. Love the sculptures around. They also provide shuttle to the airport. Would stay there again next time when we are in Sofia!

Two night break in Sofia was enough! The hotel was fairly good but not a five star, check in was quick but no help with luggage up the steps or too the room. Room was very dark with curtains falling down, not a good first impression. Big beds with a selection of pillows. Bathroom needed some work, it looked old...

Maybe not a 5star hotel but definitely a great choice in central Sofia. Walking distance from Serdika metro station and Vitosha boulevard. Clean & large rooms, small indoor swimming pool, big variety at the breakfast buffet. The staff at the spa was quite unfriendly/unwilling to answer some questions we had. Helpful front desk, nice music playing throughout the day.

I stayed for a night there, got picked up from the airport by the hotel staff (€10), slept well, had a lovely breakfast (included), and checked out smoothly. Didn't get a chance to use the rooftop restaurant, the pool, spa etc. so I can't comment on that. The room was fine, food in the morning my type - various types...

5 mins walk from the main boulevard. A few annoying issues no milk in room no robes in room however these were sorted. No iron. Rubbish hairdryer. Connected to casino which offers free drinks but not free money! Good breakfast, clean. Would stay again

Nice location near city centre. Helpful personnel. The hotel is with modern entry with a lot of art pieces,but rooms and spa area is old.I don't like that I have to pay to use the sauna and I need to wear a cap to use the pool. Definitely not 5 stars.
