The hotel is poorly maintained and is part of an old building. The hotel, while very close to central bus and rail stations, is not in the city centre. The rooms were strictly average and housekeeping is not offered unless asked for. The shower and bathtub were not maintained as the water kept gushing up from the drains. Not much...

Located right next to Sofia's train station, this hotel offers a great access to transport. When we arrived, the hotel lobby looks welcoming , but the problem came on the reception. We arrived at the hotel very late in the morning, around 00:30, and we showed out ID's to confirm our reservation, which was paid via online banking , (Booking.com)...

The location is convenient if you are coming to Sofia via the central train station and there are trams, buses and a metro stop very close by if you want to go to the centre. It's not a...

Got an incredible deal via British Airways and was expecting much worse. The staff were very helpful, particularly as I am somewhat disabled. Room on 1st floor right opposite the lift. The room was fine, bed comfortable and room well cleaned. The shower was wonky but they repaired it - it did take a couple of goes. However, my big...

It was one of the worst experiences ever. It was booked by my company's assistant - we were expecting something different entirely. First of all, we entered the hotel at night, tired after a long day of driving. We asked about the safety of a parking nearby - they smiled and said - no, it's not safe to leave your...

The staff in the hotel is not helpfull at all. It is hard to communicate as staff is drunk and not paying attention to their customers. It is not clean, towels and blankets are not changed during 2 weeks. Do not recommend to stay here.

The only reason I booked this is to sleep before taking a bus to Niš, the place is very depressing, WiFi signal is extremely weak, and bathroom is below average. The only upside is that it's very close to the Sofia bus station.
