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
Middle of no where

I stay here because I'm an IHG member but to be honest this hotel is in the middle of no where with nothing happening except for a cinema and a few small or fast food restaurants. At least 15 to 20 minutes away from the city centre.

My wife and I had a great break, the hotel staff couldn’t do enough for us. The room was spotless and extremely spacious. Food in the main restaurant was of great choice and very tasty. 5 mind walk to the metro and 15mins to the centre.
