Basic hotel with nice breakfast. Very clean but a little bit old. Wifi connection is good. The problem is that the most of the rooms have single beds as result the three couple of us to sleep separated . Very close to the centre and 2 metro stations.

As a returning visitor of Sofia I think Renaissance hotel was way better then I had before, not perfect but good enough for a short stay. Hotel is clean, plain and simple breakfast good enough, and if things as a broken tile or missing shower curtain don't bother you not much complaining. Citycenter and shops are in walking distance.

Renaissance is centrally located, in walking distance of the major attractions. The rooms to the back are quiet, in the front is a tram stop. The rooms are ok but there are not enough accessible sockets for recharging two or more devices.

I stayed at this hotel last week for 3 nights. The hotel is close to Sofia's attractions and the train and bus station are 20 minutes away. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast simple but had several choices .

Our room was clean and overlooked the street with the tram stop outside but with window closed the noise did not disturb us. The Hotel has no bar but room has mini bar facilities in fridge. Breakfast was buffet with a good selection but the noise from the TV in the breakfast room was annoying.

When I arrived there were no curtains in my room and the man on reception was not very enthusiastic about sorting it out. He said he would get the bell boy to sort it out but 2 hours later it hadnt been done so I had to ask again. This hotel is clean and fairly well located (though watch out...
