Enjoyed the hotel and the staff. Prompt early morning wake-up call followed by coffee in the lobby and a shuttle ride to the airport. We will plan a longer visit the next time to enjoy the nice amenities.

We've stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, and I've picked this place based on reviews. The hotel is in a good location, if you have a car, you can get to the downtown area of Sofia in less than 10 minutes. Finding the entrance to the hotel is a little bit tricky, but Google Maps can help you. The...

We have stayed in this hotel before as it is very convenient for the airport. We have finally found out how to enter and exit the car park, and get to the airport. You leave the hotel and go onto the dual carriageway, go into the far left hand lane and at the traffic lights either do a U turn...

First hotel we stayed in bulgaria so we didn't know what to expect. The doorman 'ogie' (nickname, I can't pronounce his real name!) Carried our bags up and when we said we were thirsty he went to the shop to get us some water which really impressed us. The other staff seemed a little quiet but were all just as...

We had driven from Bourgas, staying overnight before a morning flight back to uk. Metropolitan is near the airport, on the boulevard/ motorway connections, and rooms are large and comfortable. They also offer an airport drop off minibus service. Pricing is reasonable.

Dear Mr.Tripas, Thank you for choosing Metropolitan Hotel Sofia and for the time to share your opinion with us. According to the laws in Bulgaria, all categorized hotels and restaurants are non-smoking premises.
