Horrific inside- there were dried fluid marks(I'm guessing body emissions) all over the walls, the pillows were stained and smelly, the room reeked of smoke, loose wires hanging ominously out of the wall- very weird vibe ( I suspect they have hourly rates). Nice receptionists however and the location was excellent! My teenager booked it btw- I have stayed in...

It offers value for money, our room was average but we were pleased with it. The staff was very helpfull and willing to satisfy all our needs. Definetely could use a renovation but all in all we were happy with it. Reccomended for short stays

It is very well located, near Vitosha Blv and next to all the main tourist attractions. Rooms are quite dirty and not in good condition. In general, it smells badly and they don't worry about the things they could improve. We spent a week in the hotel and they didn't clean the room or change sheets/towels during our stay. The...

We stayed at the Alabin Hotel Central for one night and the overall experience was okay; the hotel really is central, located right behind the pedestrian street, the staff was nice and the room was okay, though quite worn down. The toilet had some flushing issues, that might make you and your roommate a little more intimate than you wish...

If all you care about is low price and good location, then this is the hotel for you. Actually the lady at the front desk was pretty nice too. But the rooms really need to be renovated. In fact this entire hotel needs to be completely remodeled and renovated. It's just old, dark, worn out, sad, everything needs to be...

the main problem is that: "alabin hotel" has different types of rooms - some of them are new (with new furniture and modern bathrooms), and some of them are not (dusty and disgusting rugs, leaky toilet...). so you need to be lucky enough to get the "normal one" room. the main plus: central location, walk distance to Vitosha blvd, lots...

Hotel Alabin is one of the nicest hotels I've stayed anywhere in the world. The architecture is of the Renaissance style & the decor is beautifully appointed. It presents great value for money & a perfect location. If you're travelling with friends I recommend room 101 (Crack Den Room). It is without doubt the finest room in the hotel. One...

My partner booked this hotel for a sort stay in Sofia with family. On arrival we were given the room keys one of which the room was already occupied. Went back to reception to get another room. We went to the room, and can honestly say I have never seen any hotel room as awful as that. The room was...
