“Decent place for exploring the city”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

Don't expect too much luxury from the rooms. They're clean, with a proper bathroom, tiny tv and airco. Reception is manned by English speaking staff. Best thing, besides the price,is most certainly the location. If you travel without a car then this is a great place to set up camp before exploring the city. Eveything you'll probably want to see is within walking distance.

I stayed here for one night and I must say it's not great. A couple of good points are that it is very cheap and very central but there are better hotels close by for a few euro more. We had booked a triple room and one of the beds was a campbed. There was also a hole in the floor which was just covered over by the carpet. The breakfast was awfull, two slices of fried bread and bad coffee. I would not recomend this hotel

The place looks a bit dated but my room was clean, the bathroom wad recently renovated and spotless. It is located very centrally, near Vitosha boulevard. The inly disappointement was that the Wifi did not seem to work. Apart from that, it is difficult to beat these prices!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2011

We moved here from a hostel, where we had a cell facing a blank wall with no fan or air-conditioner. For just 50% more we were given a two-room suite with a bathroom, two televisions, a fridge, lots of wardrobe space and storage areas and a table where I could put my laptop in front of a couch. Okay, the carpet was stained, the water didn’t go down well in the bathroom, the drains were a bit smelly on the first day and one of the hooks fell off the wall, but otherwise it was quite luxurious.

One other minor annoyance was that the small corridor connecting the two bedrooms and the bathroom had automatic lights that were sensitive to any movement, so they tended to keep going on and off. On the other hand, the lights in the main corridor outside were not sensitive enough and sometimes left us in the dark, and as it was a windowless corridor it was pitch dark when the lights didn’t come on.

Though the WiFi worked well at first it stopped working on the second night. We took it down to the lobby to try it out on the last morning but still could not connect to the hotel's network, and had to piggyback on another one that came up.

The breakfast, included in the price, was about the worst we’ve had in Bulgaria. No choice was offered. Just some slices of French toast (i.e. fried with egg) some white cheese, and a serve of jam. Coffee was a bit cold, but we could ask for some hot water to make it hotter.

The thing that made this hotel a luxury for us was that we were offered a suite for the price of a room. (We were actually given a choice, but would be crazy not to choose the suite.) Otherwise, it would have been quite an ordinary hotel experience, but still far better than the hostel we escaped from.

Room Tip: Ask to see more than one room and you may be offered a suite.
