            The rooms were rather spacious, nice eqiuped. The restaurant was excellent, good vine selection and designer cuisine.

            Not enough facilities in the room boiler for example

            7.4

            The room size was reasonable, it was clean, no noise from street

            I think, if you take rate with breakfast, the price will be not siutable for this hotel. Also, the air in the room and corridors was not really fresh

          • Couple
            9.6

            This is my favourite hotel in Sofia - clean, cosy, friendly, well appointed rooms, good location!

            Friendly staff, good breakfast.

            Couldn't use computer to print boarding passes but problem resolved by staff.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            room space, breakfast is very o.k., bad is comfortable and big

            tv is very old and I did not find cable

          • Single
            7.4

            I liked the spacious room and the location.

            The staff at check-in could have been a bit more friendly and helpful. The printer at the business corner (cubicle) was out of toner....there seemed to be no replacement although the staff in charge tried to help.
