I find myself back in classic fashion time. Quit a style - a great combo. Life piano music in the restaurant - the music fits the place and style. Service really friendly and professional. Checking in fast and easy. Room big, nice and clean. The spa is nice as well. Everything is crystal! Must try.

I have really nothing to complain about this hotel: perfect location, nice and large rooms, very good breakfast and restaurant, everything clean and good looking. Additionally, staff people were friendly and smiling all the time. Perfect to spend a business trip or a week-end in Sofia.
