Stayed here a few times now. Rooms very comfortable & stylish. Breakfast also tasty with plenty of choice. A little out of centre but taxis are very cheap so I wouldn't let that put you off. Restaurant & bar area very relaxing Would highly recommend. I'll definitely be back.

Every thing about this hotel is first class. You will love the kind service, the personal attention, the full breakfast, the convenience to the airport, and the convenience to city center by short taxi. Thanks for a lovely stay. We highly recommend this's hotel.

Hotel is an about 10 to 15 min drive from the airport. There is a shuttle bus, but you better tell the hotel your exact arrival time to ensure a pick up. Rooms are quite large with the usual facilities. Beds were reasonable soft, comfortable. Bathroom had a bathtub only, that could be used as a shower. Lightning was good....

These guys try very hard to make everything perfect, nice rooms very clean and large. The metro station is about 10 minutes walk, we were surprised that the metro system is very nice and clean here, it is a bit far from the center but it is worth staying here.

Soulless with no street scape of any merit. Add the dismissive service after our pre purchased dinner was not delivered and we forked out extra for the pleasure of dining in house at rates treble what you find around town; despite the hotel accepting that it was their error, the reaction was "too bad". If you like hotel rooms that...

This was the 3rd hotel we stayed in during our recent visit to Bulgaria - this was far the best. Comfortable beds, room and facilities. Staff friendly and helpful. New so a lot of modern features. Advantage close to airport as well

Hotel is very average in general and the biggest failure is restaurant. Waiters are not professional, alway something missing during breakfast, dirty tables, etc. Rooms itself are nice and sleeping quality quite well. No air conditions in the corridors so with 30 degrees outside it is very uncomfortable. Advantage is location in close car distance to the airport.

I only stayed one night as I was on my way to the airport for a really early departure. The hotel offers complimentary shuttle to the airport - even at 4:30am. This takes about 10 minutes or less. This strikes me as a business traveler's hotel and it certainly worked for me. Reception staff were really polite, spoke excellent English...

This was one of the best hotels we stayed in during a recent visit to Bulgaria. It's located very close to the airport and provided one free shuttle service returning to airport. You have to pay 3 euros per person for other trips and shuttle service to the airport must be arranged prior to arrival. Out room was very nic....
