Great place to stay. Equi-distance between the central railway station and the centre of town. The receptionist, Sonia, couldn't have been more helpful. Room was; quiet, clean, wifi worked well, shower was good, and the breakfast had a good variety. We would stay there again.

Convenient as the hotel is just a short walk from the centre of town and has good clean rooms. Our only complaint is that the the shower was slow to drain and the hotel is a little overheated. Good buffet breakfast.

We stayed at the beginning and end of our trip and both times, the rooms had a lovely view and the place was spotless. The location was a bit away from the action, but it was not a very far walk to downtown (~15 mins). The real highlight though, was the included breakfast, which was the best we experienced on our two-week trip. The dinner was outstanding as well. I was traveling with my father and they kept trying to put us in a room with a double bed, but we worked it out eventually.

I recently reserved the Budapest Hotel for a company event we had in Sofia. The Hotel team did an excellent job both in service delivery as well as the quality of food and drinks.
Rooms are comfortable and location is just 15 min. walk from the city center. Restaurant staff and catering were well organized. Wi – Fi is available everywhere in the hotel.
Everything I requested was ready. Anything we needed was brought right away. There was not one thing I could complain about. I would recommend this hotel for business or pleasure when visiting Sofia.

I give it four stars largely because of the excellent service. I needed to check-in online for a flight the following day and was stuck without a phone or laptop in Sofia and couldn't find an Internet cafe. The hotel desk clerk happily let me use his laptop and then arranged a packed breakfast that I could take early the next morning. The rooms are clean but a little dated, though the bathroom and shower were upgraded. The hotel is a 15-minute walk from the center.

First hotel stayed in Bulgaria, overall very good. The staff are friendly and helpful.
The breakfast is included in the rate, with decent selection.
Everything works in the room, and there is a safety deposit box.
Very close to the main bus terminal and train station, so if you are going to somewhere else within Bulgaria, you could just walk to the station.
however on the other side of the coin is that it's little bit away from the center, you could say its walking distdistance, but after a long day you probably just want to take a taxi back.
One thing i don't like is their comforter. Its Bulgarian style, even though you have a double bed, the quilt is single sized, barely to cover one person, and I am skinny.
But other than that i would recommend this hotel

Budapest Hotel is not the most luxurious hotel in Sofia, but for approximately 50 Eur per night (for 2 people) quite excellent choice. It has air conditioned rooms, helpful English speaking staff, wireless in all rooms and a very good restaurant in the basement (in case you need an emergency snack). It is walking distance (15 min) from the centre and provides an excellent base for exploring Sofia.

The first night I didn't sleep well on account the noisy air conditioner, but got used to it with time. The only thing I really missed was a kettle for tea and coffee in the room, but the weather ended up being so nice that enjoying the sunshine on a terrace of any coffee shop proved do be infintely better choice. Definitely reccommended!
