Stayed in the Deluxe Suite. Lovely spacious room 5 min walk from everything. Friendly, helpful staff. Elegant lobby. Rooms surprisingly quiet given the traffic noise outside. Parking could be a problem, though we managed to get a spot opposite, judging by the size of the hotel v the parking not everyone will be so lucky. Lots missing from the mini...

Nice hotel, large rooms, very good staff only issue was the room was too hot. I know it was 0C outside but no need to make rooms so hot. Breakfast was plenty and a good variety on offer. We would definitely stay here again

I had an unbelievable worst experience on this hotel, i book the best suite room, the manager was suspicious about me then asked me to pay the room before my check-out, that shows how is badly administrated and un-prepared to welcome guest, the manager (Petya Stefanova) who is thinking like owner of hotel doesnt follow any standard or protocol, on...

It was my second choice when I found out that my reservation in Hilton was not successful, but it was quite OK. Location was excellent for my purposes, and it was also very close to the city center. Room was very nice and clean and the staff was pleasant. While I was out for a business, my wife had ordered...

I booked this hotel because it was in the central area and specifically advertised it had car parking. When I arrived it was apparent that you could not even park outside the hotel to check in. I was then told that there was no parking. This soon changed to the fact that there might be parking but they would need...

I stayed at Downtown Hotel for a weekend. It is nicely located: 10 min walk from the City Center and 20 min drive to the airport. The room was spacious and clean; however, the walls of the room and bathroom are too thin and I could hear everything happening in the adjacent rooms and the room on the upper floor...
