I've tried several hotels in central Sofia. This is the best priced and has a good location. Rooms are large and well appointed. There are two restaurants and a large lounge with waiter service. The spa is small. The roman remains in the basement are a reminder of the fact Sofia has a long history

Excellent rooms. Our room had a large bathroom (shower and bath) and separate WC Nice range of bath soaps. Breakfast is Ok, but not a 5 star rating! Excellent central location, a few minutes walk from Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Staff at the reception could do better by smiling and acknowledging their customers!

Came here with a group of friends for the weekend. The hotel looks out of place as it a beautiful 5 star hotel in a cul-de-sac which backs onto some less than fresh faced flats. 15 minutes in a taxi from Sofia airport which came to 40 Bulgarian Lev. Some of the rooms are stupidly big. I stayed in a...

Rooms are very classy, L'Occitane toiletries, kettle and hairdryer in the room. Below ground floor level some roman ruins and boardrooms. SPA and gym, the first one quite pricey however very stylish and relaxing. Food in the...

The hotel is a 5 stars hotel, the stuff were great, very helpful. Breakfast was delicious. The rooms are very comfortable, very big and pleasant. The location is very central, so you can walk around and see most of the major attractions.

Arena di Serdica is a boutique hotel at a great central location. Even the standard rooms were really large, well above the average in many countries. They are decorated in a very cosy yet modern style and give you a feeling of luxury. They were also very clean and the bathroom and shower lavish. There were certain things however, which...

I was on this hotel on a business trip. Hotel is nice, rooms are very fine. But water in the shower doesn't flow out of the shower, and there is a strong light in the room you can't turn off in the night. Breakfast was only ok, something between 3* and 4* level. Price/Performance is ok.
