“Great value for money”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

One might wonder why this hotel has only 3 stars. Great friendly staff, very nice and perfectly clean rooms, 24-hours open restaurant, garage, close to metro station, which makes it 15 minutes ride from the city center. Construction going on in April 2014 on blvd near hotel only made it a bit difficult to get to hotel by car.

I stayed there for just one overnight, but long enough to benefit of the great service of the staff! Warm welcome and so friendly "hi" at reception was a promising start. We had a twin room, which was spacious enough, very clean and designed with an elegant simplicity. Excellent atmosphere! I had to work so I needed wifi - no problems, connection was good. What I appreciated most in this hotel was the staff at reception. I had an emergency business issue and needed some print copies made in no time. They did that for me really for free, as fast as possible and with the nicest smile though they do not have a business center! Things like that make your day.

Brief, this is a charming family hotel with impeccable interior, great comfort, elegant and relaxing atmosphere and wonderful staff! Location was ok - very close to the airport and with nearby public transport for downtown. Thumbs up for Kabu!!!

Traveling with a group of women this hotel was selected for us by our travel service. We arrived late afternoon after an exhausting flight and found the desk clerk friendly and prepared for our check in. Keys were ready and waiting and we were able to proceed directly to our clean, comfortable accommodations. Our entire stay was just that smooth. From the desk clerk to the wait staff in the restaurant to the maid service they seemed to anticipate our every need - no complaints from anyone in our group. Traveling with a group of
11 women this is no easy task to accomplish ! The Kabu is not in the scenic downtown area of Sofia but the metro is only
about 2 blocks and very inexpensive. We used it and felt safe even returning well after dark. There is also taxi service which we used to get to and from the airport with luggage.
The beds were very comfortable , huge soft towels, a great shower, free Wifi in all our
rooms and a very generous cooked to order breakfast. There is a refrigerator in each room ( but no coffee maker or microwave) and a grocery store just across the street. We ate breakfast and sometimes late night drinks in the restaurant but no lunches or dinners so I can't comment in those. Would certainly stay again,

Nice, western friendly, hotel staff spoke good English. Price was very reasonable. Wifi was spotty. Breakfast was good, but limited. Hotel rooms were clean, but some construction work is proceeding outside of my window at 5am...woke me. Bathroom & shower were modern and excellent

We were given a blind recommendation by a friend who lives opposite this hotel in Mladost. We didn't know what to expect when we booked for one night in May but had seen online that it looked stylish and appeared good value. The entrance is small but extremely servicable and the staff were extremely good looking in an Abercrombie and Fitch kind of way but helpful and polite. In fact nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was a decent size (on the third floor) with a good size and comfortable double bed. The mini bar was very cute although contained no beer or wine. However there is a bar downstairs that can cater for those needs I suppose. A good size desk and plenty of storage space made it a well designed room and the marble bathroom with a powerful shower added to the experience. It is in a good area of the city although not too central, a taxi is about 8/10 Lev (4/5 Euros) so not too bad. Next door is a supermarket and big M (golden arches) with some small bars and cafes around the corner. A very handy hotel and will definitely use it again as at 40 EUR is very good value considering the level of service, size of room and decor. Well worth hunting out if you want a boutique style hotel without the boutique price tag and don't mind being a little outside the heart of the city.

Good Value in this Hotel. Spend there 2 nights in early Octobre 2012 due a Businessmeeting just beside the Hotel. Nice Deccor and friendly Emplyees there. Breakfast could bebetter, but was good for such short Trip. Hotel is beside a large Supermarktet and other Shops. Also there is a Fast Food Restaurant nerby and a Metro Station. From and to airport it was just 6 minutes with Taxi. Taxi to city was 20 Minutes (or use Metro!!!)

We choosed this Hotel "Kabu", due we liked the Pictures from their Rooms. Friendly Service Staff at time of CheckIn and we got a nice Room (like on the Pictures). The mostly black colored Design is nice and we really liked it. The Hotel is not in the Center, it is outside, but there was a subway Station just a few Minutes away from it. McDonalds Restaurant just beside!
