Skilled and friendly stuff. Quite attractive rate quality/price. Comfortable and clean rooms. Lovely breakfast with wide and tasty selection. Very good location, just a 10 minutes walk to downtown. Just heating in lobby and breakfast room was too high. I definitely suggest Forum Hotel for a business trip to Sofia.

The smell of cigarettes is a negative, very good breakfast for such type of hotel. I have stayed twice in the same room so far and second time was better. The first time I have problem with the door which did not appear on my second visit but I assume that there are such problems very often because the last...

I stayed at Hotel Forum Sofia before two weeks. I was welcomed by a smiley lady and accommodated in a room with nice view. The breakfast was nice and the room very clean. I would recommend this hotel to my friends. It is not far from the center of the city. I will visit Hotel Forum again.

I stayed in the hotel in December 2016. Room is nice and clean, bathroom looks new, stuff is friendly and helpful. Restaurant with garden, where food and drinks are on reasonable prices. I would love staying at this hotel again.

I stayed in the hotel for a night. Its good location to the centre and close to local hospitals. I was positively surprised of how clean the rooms were. The bed was comfortable and heating was working perfectly fine. Staff were really nice and attentive. The hotel has a parking BUT you have to pay for it, which I think...

Very basis hotel, which despite some reports is not in central Sofia. Rooms are basic and clean. Very small shower cubicle. Clean and warm but I don't think I can add too much else. Breakfast was average. Service was average. I found myself frequently having to seek out staff. They were polite when asked for something but it seemed like...

For a short conference the hotel offers all you need. Simple rooms, basic breakfast and a shortage of good coffee. Beds are a bit small and soft. Also a bit out of the center so you need a taxi to get around. The Billa market next door has a good coffee shop and also good wine selection, much better priced...
