The place was cheap and in an excellent location. You get what you pay for. I wasn't particularly disappointed with the place, but not impressed. There was a lot of window dressing - a phone on the desk that wasn't connected to anything, a TV and A/C unit that weren't hooked up. I stayed for about 5 days and nobody...

This hotel has rooms that are dirty, air condition without remote control (so usleless, even after asking for it 6 times in 3 days), smelly corridors with wet corners. WIFI signal very weak in the room. No wonder you can also rent it during the day only...

We've chosen low cost hotels in Bulgaria because, mainly, they are family owned, and usually nice places to stay. We look for three things, a friendly welcome, a comfortable bed, and a clean room. Two out of three isn't bad, for the Alabin. Reception staff were cheerful, efficient and spoke good English. The bed, actually two large singles pushed together...

I was - stranded in Sofia following an accident, this hotel was identified solely on the basis it was near the hospital. The bedrooms have a bed and a toilet and that's about it. There is a filthy coffee vending machine at the bottom of the stairs next to the broken lift. The lift shaft is protected by child-high bolts...

In the very heart of Sofia, everything you need is just around the corner or few streets away: metro station, Vitosha boulevard, restaurants, pedestrian sightseeing areas... and great coffee across the street! The room was pretty basic, but felt pleasant. It was a little bit dusty all over, the sheets worn out, had a strange smell from the toilet and...

It's a one star hostel. So I didn't expect too much. Large room, it had a reasonable shower. The only thing I would say is the wifi was weak and didn't work. But you get what you pay for. If you want the frills then pay more elsewhere. We just wanted a cheap place to stay for a night. The...

Good values for money. Very central location! The only problem was that there was a shutoff and we had to wait for aroun 2 hour till it comes. Beside that the room was old fashion but clean enough. Minbar was provided. And there is the posibility of only daily use of the room with half of the prise.
