On the executive floor for a couple of nights and staying at a "Hilton" was expecting a lot more. The room was small and cramped, it smelt musty and the towels were threadbare. Liking a hot shower I was to be disappointed with the water barely getting above warm the whole of my stay. The health-club/gym is a joke in... More

I stayed two nights at the Hilton hotel, where I also attended an international conference. The room was very, very comfortable. The staff was very helpful: on the day of my departure they showed a lot of flexibility in allowing me to keep the room a bit longer, as I still had to participate in the conference. I was very...

I stayed at Hilton Sofia during a business conference. It was my first Hilton hotel stay and I have to say I was pretty amazed by the quality of services. The rooms were larger than I expected, the cleaning lady did a great job every day, the bedding was amazing. And I loved the food, the breakfasts were superb.

This hotel is very large and modern, it has both a bar and restaurant with reasonably priced food, nice touches in the rooms like an iron and ironing board, fridge and coffee maker. The indoor pool is very small however.

Very good hotel, extremely competent and friendly staff. Would highly recommend. I travel extensively in both developing and developed countries. Much better experience than I expected. Traveled with two small children - staff were extremely helpful and kind. The entire hotel was immaculate - one of the cleanest places I've ever stayed.
