            Quiet, friendly, helpful and efficient, central. Restaurant excellent food (poorly advertised, pity). Wellness area also brilliant. With the exception of the Sheraton in Hannover best hotel I have stayed in.

            1. Breakfast. For the extra price and a five star hotel nothing to get excited about. 2. Drunken noisy people at all hours of the night. I do expect the hotel to do something about it.

            not many facilities for 5 stars hotels - very expensive for what offered - rooms not so nice

          • Single

            Very close to main attractions and very easily accessible. The spa facilities in the hotel are excellent and the room is a great size. Staff generally very pleasant.

            Breakfast buffet, not that extensive and staff not the most helpful during the breakfast service.

            It is ideally located in a nice sunny quiet little european capital within walking distance of all the interesting sites. The hotel and neighborhood are very quiet, it has largish well appointed rooms and the staff is nice, english speaking for the most part.

            Even using a consolidator website it seems very expensive for a city like Sofia. And it seems empty all the time which may suggest that the price is keeping people away

            Luxurious atmosphere and quiet and spacious room.

            Some of the receptionist could be more friendly. It is a pitty to find that the variety of food provided at the breakfast has been less compared with previous visit.

            Excellent location in the center, friendly staff, spacious room & well equipped bathroom

            Even though I asked for a non-smoking room I got one smelling of cigarettes- that made me feel like I was staying in some run down place not a 5 star hotel, fortunately I was staying only for a couple of nights

            the locations is good. you can even walk in the city center and you are there in 10 minutes.

            the breakfast was not even 3 star level. very poor and not just only me but also other guests where negatively surprised as i could see.

            The Arena Di Serdica Hotel offers good facilities and it is a new hotel. The rooms are spacious and the bathroom has new modern facilities. The hotel is clean and has a lot of caracter because it is built on and around ancient ruins. The staff is very friendly and they offer good service. If I revisited Sofia I would repeat my stay at this hotel. It is also very well located near the center of town within walking distance.
