Booked a two night break before travelling to ski resort. We have been to Sofia several times and knew this was a little out of the way, and worried at first, but I wouldn't let that put you off! Hotel is smart and clean. Rooms are spacious (plenty of space for our vast luggage inc skis and boots) and bathroom facilities very good with nice toiletries. Good secure parking. The staff were extremely polite and helpful. Excellent choice of menu in restaurant, although it was a little quiet. Taxi to centre of town very cheap at quiet times i.e. Evening - circa £5 Very nice cafes within the business park where the hotel is situated. Collapse

I stayed here for a week in Feb2018. Price per night was excellent with free breakfast. I highly recommend this hotel. Actually, I'm supposed to be back in Sofia soon and I hope they have an available room for me that time. I enjoyed eating at hotel restaurant as well. Every TUE, they have all Bulgarian buffet. Excellent food. Collapse
Very nice hotel and great staff

The hotel is nice- clean rooms, nice lobby and restaurant, comfortable night. The location is good, the metro isn't far and there are some restaurants just outside. I would say that it is an above average holiday inn. But what really made me happy with my stay was the staff. Some of them went out of their way to help me with my nightmare of a trip, specifically Ani, Iliana, and Petya: My first flight out of Sofia got cancelled, and I came back to the hotel. I was attempting to contact the airline to get my refund, but could not connect. Ani offered to call the Bulgarian number using her own cell phone for me, which was very kind. Next, my new flight out of Sofia got cancelled, again. At the Sofia airport already, I booked yet another flight, however I was required to print the boarding passes on my own and the airline would not help me. I called the holiday inn hoping that they could help me and I would go back there, and Petya happily printed my new boarding passes and had them waiting for me in a plastic protector. That was very nice, especially being that I had checked out the day before. And finally, when we had lunch at the restaurant before attempting to leave the city for the 3rd time, Iliana was very nice and friendly with us. She gave us recommendations on how to get to our new airport of departure, and more advice for our next trip to Bulgaria. It was small kindness that made our terrible trip a little better. Management, please recognize these employees. I would definitely come back to this hotel next time! Collapse
An average stay. I wouldn't go again.

The hotel was difficult to reach as you have to find the correct turn off from some freeways. Check-in was smooth and easy. The reception area is pleasant in it’s design. The staff were friendly, however they could have been more forthcoming in offering help. For example, I turned up with far too much luggage (I am moving country!) and I had to ask for assistance with my multiple bags, rather than being offered- although there were no other guests in the lobby at the time so there were no apparent other tasks needing attention. The hotel room (I had a standard room with double bed on the 4th floor) was reasonably clean and well-maintained. I could see slight scuff marks and dirty corners but otherwise pretty it was pretty alright. Shame there was no robe or slippers. The carpet flooring has a lot of hair on it, there were stains on the curtains. The mini bar selection is small and regularly overpriced, and it seems that a lot of the contents that were listed to be there, were not. I spoke to the reception about this, and they crossed off some items that were not supposed to be there, however there were still several missing after I asked for it to be stocked. It would have been really nice if the complimentary tea selection included more than just black tea, something non-caffeinated for those of us travelling. I had understood that the wifi was complimentary, as specifically told in my email communication to the hotel, however when logging in, price options are offered. The internet rates vary but it is quite overpriced. At the time of writing this review, 24 hours was 22leva. I spoke with reception about this, and they said it is an error and that the internet IS free. There was shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand soap in the bathroom, however no moisturiser- which is something I expect for a hotel catering to international travellers (aeroplanes- dry skin!) For a hotel, the fitness centre/gym is well-equipped. The pool, jacuzzi, sauna area is goo, but the steam room smelled so badly that I didn’t use it. I paid for one night, and additionally to be able to check out at 6pm the next day. The rate I was confirmed in the email was approximate 35leva less than was charged to my credit card when I checked in to the hotel. I spoke to reception about this and they said it is a “deposit” and that on check-out the correct amount is charged. To me this seems silly to-and-fro of funds. The hotel is nice and quiet and warm. Beware that because the power turns off when you remove your key card, your devices will not charge if you leave them while you are out! By no other country’s standards would this be 5 star, but I suppose it would have to be one of the better hotels in Bulgaria..?! Collapse

We were in town for meetings and everything at the hotel was excellent. The highlight of our stay was Daniel - the bar tender. He is the perfect bar tender - engaging, great recommendations on local drinks, knows the local history, and enjoyable to hang out with for a few hours. If you are ever in Sofia, stay at this hotel and spend some time with Daniel. Collapse
