Nice stay, friendly staff, good breakfast, nice gym. The hotelnis located close to the airport. It is modern, the rooms are comfortable. In the area there are a number of restaurants, and it takes about 20 minutes by taxi to get to down town.

Stayed here last week for 2 nights (was supposed to be 3 however had to cut the visit short due to Lufthansa strike). I must say that I was impressed by the level of service at the Hotel, in particular the front desk staff who were always very helpful and had excellent spoken english. The rooms were comfortable although mine... More

It has been 3 years since I was last back in Sofia and even longer since my last review of Hotel Metropolitan. Recently, I was able to stay at the hotel. This time, I got the corner suite which is different from the rooms I normally stay at. The hotel continues to impress me with their excellent service. There is... More

This is a really good hotel and we enjoyed our one night stay. The only disadvantage to me is the location, as you need to take a bus or a taxi to get to central Sofia. There is something else I would like to say and I am afraid, it is not a positive comment. We used the shuttle to... More

Very good hotel, has some middle space parking open places. Good breakfasts in M-floor(between 1-2), but sometimes one of the coffee machine is not workable. Very comfortable breakfast restaurant. In elevator you need your key-card to access your room floor. In room there is embedded air conditioning, TV, very comfortable bath. Bath room was with bathtub, but without curtain, just... More

The hotel is very nice (business) one, with big modern rooms, free parking and very helpful staff. The restaurant has an unusual disposition (semi-circular one), but it fits well within the construction. The building is close to the airport (10-15 min max) and they have a regular shuttle as well (ask the reception). The place is at 10 min walking... More

Overall, this is a solid, average hotel for a vacation traveller. It's a 10-minute walk to the train station, the rooms are clean, the bed is comfortable, there's a small gym. All good. As a business traveller, there are a few shortcomings. The wireless internet is spotty at best, and frequently frustratingly slow. If you bill a hotel as a... More

Booked this hotel as it was close to the airport. Arrived from the uk on a very late flight. Warm helpful greeting. Smoking balcony at the end of each floor which is really handy. The downstairs reception and restaurant is modern and attractive. Beds were comfy. Free mini bar which had a can of beer, coke, juice and water... Lovely... More
