This hotel has beautiful interior decor, friendly accommodating staff, and a very good chef. The food menu was very healthy and delicious. The hotel is located in the heart of the city and close to many tour sites. My stay at the Grand Hotel Sofia was totally satisfying.

Enormous room with hallway and spacious bathroom with bath and power shower. Very clean, central location. Staff were friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Breakfast is very good too, but on the expensive side, at 19 euros.

The blond lady at the reception is very helpfull. The waiters at the breakfast rooms are...
