“Weekend in Sofia”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

We stayed in this hotel at the end of October for a weekend trip. Ideal location, very quiet, room was really nice, very clean, good bathroom too and good condition. Hotel a short walk away from shopping area and were able to find our way around quite easily as city on a grid system. Only niggle would be the breakfasts, choice very good, service also, but the cooked breakfasts were barely warm, either need to think about covering the food to help this or change heating method, noticed a lot of half finished food at breakfast because of this. Otherwise, great hotel to stay in.

As a hospitality employee I am very picky where to stay and this hotel was definitely the correct choice. Room as ready straight away and for first time ever I could not find anything to complain about :))) Overall lovely hotel with very helpful staff and the perfect central location.
The breakfast buffet was delicious and they also give the option of ordering free breakfast, cooked especially for you.
The two girls working in the breakfast room (sorry did not remember names), were amazing and going the extra mile every morning with my special coffee requests.

Room Tip: if travelling as a couple, ask for double duvet, instead of two singles.

This is an outstanding hotel with western comforts in the heart of Sofia. Great breakfast and fabulous shower. Comfortable bed. Steps from shopping and historic sites. No fitness center. Can't speak to value because my hosts paid the bill.

Great up-to-date hotel with all facilities needed. Very kind and welcoming staff. As normally in October air-conditioning is not needed and the central system was turned off, an efficient ventilator was brought to our room immediately.
The hotel is directly close to the pedestrian shopping area.
Breakfast is fantastic with seductive highest - quality cakes.
We were given a late check-out free of charge because our flight was in the evening.
We can fully recommend this hotel. What you pay is much less than what you get even if you consider the low Bulgarian prices. Evelyn Teitler

Room Tip: high floor where you can overlook part of the city

We were on a 5 week driving trip and location was important to us. We wanted to park the car and be able to walk or use public transit to see Sofia. The Premier Thracia was perfect. I must say that arriving there was a bit chaotic as it is located on a busy one way street and there was already a car in the drive up area. So we went around the block and parked and walked back to the lobby. It worked perfectly as we were able to bring the car around and the attendant was waiting to take it to their underground. We were there 3 nights and had excellent service from all of the staff. The breakfast in the morning was quite good with lots of variety. Our room was spacious and the temperature to our liking. The Premier Thracia is just 2 blocks away from the pedestrian street and there were plenty of excellent restaurants nearby including both the trendy Cactus and also a restaurant with Bulgarian decorations and cuisine. (We joined a walking tour provided by "Free Sofia Tour" and it was really quite informative and provided a great overview of Sofia and Bulgarian history/culture. It gave us ideas of where we wanted to return and spend more time later in the afternoon. A note too that no one should miss Rila Monastery. It's a long drive and we found a private guide through Balkan Trails. It took one full day out of our time in Sofia, but it was worth it. Whether you drive yourself or find a guide, it is a must see.)

Room Tip: Our room was on the front of the building, but we heard no noise from the busy street. I think we w...

The large bedroom had all the usual facilities. The bed was comfy and the well appointed bathroom very clean with an excellent selection of toiletries. The buffet breakfast, in a bright and well laid out restaurant, catered for international tastes with varied dishes and attentive quick service. The food was a really good start to the day. The hotel is in a side street about 50 metres from the pedestrian area with all its bars and shops. It was my first visit to Sofia and I doubt I will look for anywhere else to stay on another visit. Good value for money.

Room Tip: A room by the lift is fine. Very little noise.
