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

                Fitness room

                Not enough facilities in the room boiler for example

              • Couple
                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.

                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.
