Reviewed 6 May 2014

Good location. Uninviting and dusty looking reception area. Room was modern, clean and well equipped but unfortunately reeked of cigarette smoke (in a non smoking room) even with the windows wide open

A deplorable breakfast (poor quality and poor selection) is served in a poorly maintained room located just behind the reception area - appears to be run by the folks who have the restaurant that adjoins the hotel. Tableware is just odds and ends of various colours and styles. Shocking for an establishment that claims to be 3 to 4 star

One can eat well in Bulgaria and prices are very reasonable. Therefore, there is no excuse for serving such a poor quality breakfast rotten pineapple included

Simply cannot understand why this hotel is so highly rated!

Good hotel in the heart of Sofia.
Stayed as a couple for 3 nights.
Friendly stuff, very good location close to the pedestrian zone, good nearby restaurants, a/c, clean and spacious room.
Ask for a room overlooking courtyard.
Will stay again when/if go to Sofia.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking courtyard.

Hotel Sofia Place is a modern and clean hotel, with spacey rooms and good service.
This hotel is suitable for business or pleasure trips. Room prices are reasonable to low and comfort and hygiene level is high, The hotel has a nice next door bar an restaurant.

Airco and over 100 TV channels make your stay very pleasant

The hotel is situated, just outside the Old Centre of Sofia, just near the book market that is open all day untill 20.00 hours..

Room Tip: Pick a room on the street side with a balcony and you have a mountain view to wake you up

Me and my wife stayed in this hotel for the weekend and it was very nice. The hotel is new so the room is well equipped. Beds are comfortable, bathroom is new with toiletries and the whole room is very clean.
We had flat screen TV in our room (we had a cable TV), mini-bar, plenty of room for clothes and balcony.
They have their own underground parking with the car lift system which is pretty much cramped. The street in front of the hotel is an alley, there are parked cars in it, so you have to be very careful. I think that bigger cars can't get in.
Otherwise, the staff is friendly, location is perfect, right next to Vitosha Blvd. where you can find a lots of restaurants and shops. Major Sofia attractions are also near by and you can go sightseeing on foot.
The breakfast was good enough.
So, highly recommended!

The hotel is located in the very city center, reception was welcoming, the room was spacious and new, the breakfast had a variety of choice.
A small point about breakfast. Although the in generak it was quite good two days out of three of our stay omlet and sausages were cold.
And probably the one really annoying thing was a smell in our room. It looks like maid also realized the problem, because she was trying to leave the window wide opened after the cleaning although the weather was quite cold outside

A good choice if you plan to stay just a couple of days and walk around the city. The location is excellent, 1 minute from the main pedestrian venue, lots of restaurants, cafes and shops withing minutes of walking distance.

Rooms are a bit on the small size but nicely done and they feel cosy. No view to speak of but it's on a very quiet little street right in the center.

Staff was friendly and helpful.

Breakfast not great.

Parking in the hotel's underground parking lot can be a little tricky. Not recommended if you drive a big car as it might not fit in the elevator.

We really enjoyed staying there.

Room Tip: get a street view room to check out the city at night.

Nice, clean and cozy hotel in the hearth of the city. The breakfast is ok and the service friendly and efficient. The best hotel based on price/performance with helpful staff and the perfect central location.
