Ive stayed in several Ramada properties which I usually adore, and what was worse than this property was the attitudes of the staff. Seems like they all got frozen n cold in the winter! Giving information or guest service is obviously a foreign concept to them. The room had a view of nothing but a wall on the 4th floor!...

Sofia was just a bonus on a trip back from Athens, using cheap Ryanair flights. I didn’t bother to look for an optimal hotel but just booked a big hotel that taxis would find. The place still have a communist time feel to it, and the breakfast room is like a down market resort, but the room is very comfortable...

Good location near train station and bus terminus. Within walking distance of the city centre. Friendly and helpful check-in staff, though we had some communication difficulties. Our room was refurbished and an improvement on a previous visit. However, the aircon is set and could not be regulated. A good buffet breakfast, but the dining area could become quite crowded. Dinner...

What keeps bringing me back to the Ramada Sofia is the swimming pool, which is free for hotel guests. It's one of the best opportunities for indoor swimming in Sofia: 25 meters long, heated to 30 degrees, and not at all crowded for a morning swim. It does get crowded in the late afternoons and evenings, since it is open...

For me Ramada Sofia doesn't deserve 4 stars! Between the rooms from pictures on website and what you find in really is big/huge differents. I will upload a few pictures, so you can make your own opinion!

Stayed here just for one night before flying to the UK. It had been recommended by friends, and although I did some research prior to booking, and was going to book elsewhere, I decided to go on the recommendation. Arrived late evening and book in was fairly painless, but was not given much info from desk. Reception was packed with...
