“Lovely and Central”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

The hotel was fantastically centrally located so we were within walking distance to all the places of interest, bars, restaurants and shops.
Our room was huge and comfortable.
We had a suite on one of the upper floors so it was lovely and quiet.
Breakfast was excellent with a very good choice of fresh fruits, cereals, fresh bread and and a lovely selection of cheeses and cold cut meats, besides the cooked choices.

Room Tip: The only negative thing I can think of is that the WIFI is practically non-existant.........too slow...

Very nice hotel in the centre of things in Sofia. Clean, well-appointed rooms. Friendly, attentive staff. Good breakfast in the morning. The only think that let's it down is the cheap, machine hairdriers. These have to go!

This hotel is ideally situated in a quiet road within a minute's walk of the main shopping/restaurant area of Sofia.

The room was spacious, well decorated and comfortable. Breakfast included an excellent choice of cooked and cold choices.

Parking is always a problem and the hotel has its own underground car park with valet parking.

An ideal choice for visiting the main tourist attractions.

This hotel was surprisingly good considering that it is relatively cheap and that Best Western wouldn't be amongst the preferred luxury hotel chains. But the property is clean, rooms very decent, staff helpful and the most important thing it is walking distance from the main commercial street (Vitosha Blvd) and the Alexander Nevski cathedral.
Ideal for short tourist visits or business.

This Best Western hotel is new and is less than 100 metres from Vitosha Street (pedestrian boulevard with lively bars and cafes in Central Sofia).

Check in and check out was speedy. A small lobby offers good coffee at very fair price.

Since this is a new hotel everything was clean and worked. The hotel has fast wi-fi, The bedrooms are reasonable size and quiet.

Breakfast buffet covers most preferences and the ingredients are good quality.

Staff were helpful and attentive - when we did not answer the wake-up call they knocked on the door after 30 minutes to make sure that we were OK.

There is a taxi stand 70m away so it is easy to get taxis.

Would I stay again? Yes, because of (1) the price of the room for a new hotel and (2) the hotel is a nice place to stay for a day or two as a base to explore Sofia.

Not usually a fan of chain hotel, but this one presents strong advantages:
- superb location, just a block away from the central, pedestrian Vitosha;
- still very quiet (though being in a front, 1st floor room, never was disturbed by traffic noise);
- nice and competent team;
- good breakfast (the offer layed on the buffet feels a bit "pack & can" but one can place made to order dishes such as pancakes or fresh juices)

Then of course, there is not much charm radiating from this place, where standards are HQ-set. Not much of an issue when you only spend the night there.

Stayed there the end of June. The location was great. Just a block from Vitosha Blvd and very close to variety of bars, restaurants, mehanas and casino. At first we thought it might be very small but after we checked in we found out that this was not the case at all. Rooms were very nice, clean and the bathrooms were great as well. The breakfast menu, the variety and quality of food was amazing. Staff was extremely friendly and they all spoke fluent English.
The only downfall was the parking rates, a bit expensive so find a spot to park on the street or use a cab if you can.
