What is important to understand from the beginning - Is that this hotel is in a state of "upgrading" - some room have been upgraded and others have not been and are referred to as "budget rooms" - It is very misguiding of reviewers to pay for a budget room and expect the quality of an upgraded room - and...

My husband and I were starting and ending our honeymoon through Europe in Sofia. This hotel provided great customer service when we found our tv did not work (they gave us a completely new room); they were quick to call a taxi for us whenever we needed and most of the staff were very friendly. The location is unbeatable with...

As a couple, we were given two single beds even after I had requested a queen/double. When I brought it up with the staff, they acted like it wasn't their problem and "couldn't do anything to help us." We asked to cancel the room, and were told to "do it ourselves." Exceedingly rude and inconsiderate treatment, if you ask me....

The reception was friendly, location very central, free Wi-FI okay, and the breakfast not bad. But this hotel is only for those seeking a nostalgic trip back to communist days. It hasn't been updated for 30 years... no, make that 50 years. Ancient decor, worn mattresses, no complimentary drinking water, no a/c, archaic elevator, loud traffic, bed only 190 cm...
