We were at the mini suite and everything was amazing:the bed was huge, the suite spacious, the design was nice, the bathroom was good, only the jacuzzi was broken and caused me a blue mark. The meals were rich and tasty. The service was very kind. They have amazing pool and spa.Great value for money.

Very well located, 5min walking distance from city centre. We got a free ugrade to a suite which was large, fairly clean and comfortable with a huge bed and private balcony.

I was most impressed with the manager of the hotel who speaks perfect English, is polite and very client service oriented. I commend...

The hotel collection surpassed the museums'. Pretty sure many museum artists in hotel collection. Even art in the comfortable rooms. Restaurant was good but not as amazing as the art. I would return to Sofia for a hotel art tour.

Good: Large clean nicely furnished room, big comfortable bed. Tea/coffee making facilities & a Nespresso type coffee maker (no milk). Private secure off-street parking. Close to the city attractions, restaurants etc. Breakfast was a buffet with an excellent selection. There is an extensive collection of paintings and sculptures everywhere this makes it a bit of an art-house hotel – not...
