Enormous room with hallway and spacious bathroom with bath and power shower. Very clean, central location. Staff were friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Breakfast is very good too, but on the expensive side, at 19 euros.

Very good location, and excellant massages. Our room (910) smelt tobacco. As it was furnished with thick curtains and carpets this kind of smell lasts for days...According to our taste the bed was hard. Service was average. Different from one person to the other. The blond lady at the reception is very helpfull. The waiters at the breakfast rooms are...

This is one of the better old style hotels in Sofia. What I really appreciated are the big rooms, one of the biggest I ever had in a hotel at this price. Being at the center of the city, it allows to visit Sofia just by walking. And if really needed, tram is one street away.

I liked the place. The only small minus is lots of furniture in my room ( 2 big coffee tables and a desk) Some stains on a carpet. Very Nice USSR style furniture ( communist Kitsch in a good way). A bit dark in the corridor.

Centrally located hotel, actually in the very heart of the capital city. Quick and easy check in, good mini bar and excellent breakfast. Room was spacious and clean, staff is very discrete, never intrusive and very polite.

Dear Mrs. Oved Reading your comments, as there are certain discrepancies, I have the impression that you describe other hotel. Grand Hotel Sofia is a five star property, not four star. We have own 24/7 technical support and not fixing a leaking bathtub for 4 days seems like mission almost impossible. Moreover, according to our files you have stayed with...
