          Stayed here for just one night, but it was perfect for our needs. Comfortable and clean. Great location. Welcoming fruit platter on arrival which is always a great gesture. Underground parking available which is essential when driving in a busy Sofia.

          As far as I know there is no shuttle from the AP. However taxi is cheap in Sofia and should'n cost more then 6-7 euros.
