The hotel is a 3 stars hotel. To take there a shower is not the best you can wish to yourself, but this is the only "bad" thing we can say about that hotel. The breakfast is OK plus, the service is good, it is a clean place and, if you like, has a night club in its basement (you...

The location was excellent for seeing the centre of the city. I arrived at just after 1-00 a.m. and was not overwhelmed by the reception I received. In the morning I paid my bill and the receptionist asked me to wait whilst they checked my room. I was quite offended and in years of travelling no one has ever made...

Ideally situated for city centre and metro, clean hotel and very helpful staff. A short walk from all the main sites of Sofia and plenty of choice of restaurants and bars nearby. When here, you must spend some time visiting the ruins which are vast.

The hotel is situated within walking distance from the city centre, in fact we rarely took taxis to visit all the sights in Sofia. It's not exactly a four star hotel and has seen better days, it's a little roccoco but it's clean, the buffet breakfast is decent and the staff very friendly. We didn't notice the nightclub nearby and...

Spent a long night here as there was a very noisy nightclub attached to the Hotel and the boo boom music if you could call it that went on until after 5am. Room was clean but bed not comfortable. Breakfast was okay.

It was a good stop on our way to vacation. Even located very close to city center, is a quiet hotel (during the weekdays - in we might be noisy because of a club at the ground floor of the hotel), more like a boutique hotel. Kind of old stylish, but clean with comfortable and large enough apartments (I'm not...

Went there for a couple nights on business. What four stars? The hotel reminds you of the communist era. There is no restaurant or room service just a very basic breakfast. The room was strange, small with a huge bathroom probably converted from something else and it had one of those night stand stereos you see in Fallout4. It's like...

Stayed here in 2014 for a stag weekend. Very basic. Only problem is that there is a strip club in the basement which doubles up as a brothel as the strippers take paying punters back to their rooms for other services. Mainly for locals only as the bulgarians are not to keen on the English.
