While we were visiting Sofia we stayed in this hotel. It is new, I think a part of Barcelo group. A little bit out of the city but with taxi app.10 min.to Vitosha street. Where shopping, eating is availible. A lot of shops and restaurants to choose. But while choosing the taxi you must check the fees. Some are expensive....

I stayed at this hotel for 18 nights on a business trip last month. I arrived very late and was exhausted, and because I read here in the reviews that it has breathtaking views of the mountain, the only thing I asked for was to make sure my room has a nice view of the mountain. I got a nice...

I give a "poor" rating instead of "terrible" only because the rooms are actually totally acceptable. However, the food is really poor. I have stayed here for the past two weeks and its depressing to come down each morning knowing that there is little I can eat. Scrambled egg is unseasoned, gelatinous, disgusting. Bacon is undercooked, sitting in its own...

I stayed here for 11 days due to work. The hotel staff are amenable and speak sufficient English. Sadly the restaurant has a very unfriendly atmosphere and layout. Tables are not laid out to show if they are available. Breakfast was typical European, cold scrambled eggs, hot dog sausages and overly crispy cold bacon .... if you want meat and...

The hotel is business oriented and is at 3-4 min walking distance from Bulgaria Mall and Infinity tower. There is no a direct subway connection, although a person familiar with the city could catch the subway from the airport to the center and get a taxi to the hotel afterwards (and vice versa) thus saving half the fare vs a...

Stayed two nights in this hotel for work nearby. Location is good for accessing main areas of Sofia. Arrived late, the Evening receptionist was overwhelmed with people trying to check in or people on the phone with queries. It took 20 mins to check in. The room was basic, bathroom was ok, shower was not very powerful, air con was...

I stayed in this Hotel as I was attending a venue at the same Hotel. It is a very nice hotel, 5 min from the sofia mall which is great for shopping with very nice prices. Most I like is the Mediterranean Lebanese Restaurant with great food and very affordable prices. If I am back in Sofia, I will go...

Had a good room in a very good hotel, right next door to the Bulgaria Mall. The room and staff were very good, and really there is nothing to complain about(famous last words). We very much appreciated everything and would not hesitate to come back, especially if we had business in the area.
