Centrally located hotel, actually in the very heart of the capital city. Quick and easy check in, good mini bar and excellent breakfast. Room was spacious and clean, staff is very discrete, never intrusive and very polite.

The hotel has excellent meeting rooms of different sizes, extremely friendly staff and great food including the lobby bar. It's situated in the heart of Sofia just 5 min walk from most of the attractions. I've had organized a seminar for 30 of my potential customers and everything went perfect. The minimum room is Superior and can be easily mistaken...

This is a lovely hotel. The rooms were huge with 2 sofas and a desk. The staff were efficient and the hotel immaculate. Missing a star for the expensive but good breakfast and the decoration, which is too traditional for my taste. Would recommend.

You will be amazed by the value this hotel is providing to you, in exchange for the very reasonable prices they charge. Huge rooms (yes, huge!), extremely clean, very polite staff, many food choices, a nice garden in the back of the hotel, and so on, and so on...I mean I couldn't find the weak spot of this hotel.
