Not discouraged by some bad travellers'reviews, I booked and found the best ever hotel in the center, run by the kindest and most prepared staff, so helpful when my luggage hadn't come for three days. My room was large and spacious, romantic style, dark red and cream-colored tapestries, the bed and mattress were excellently supporting and felt like new. The bathroom was the biggest I have ever found in an eastern European country. Breakfast was good and abundant, restaurant staff always welcoming and helpful.Facilities such as two banks and the central roads and markets were all close by! I highly recommend this lovely place, and already have booked for next months.

Rooms 205 and 305 on the 2nd and 3rd floor look out at the (ugly, dirty) building next door so they have frosted windows.Not very nice at all. 405 has a view of the roof of the building next door towards the mountain.

Overall though this is a very nice place to stay. Excellent central location, a couple of blocks to the market and shops. No problem walking everywhere. I didn't notice much street noise though it is in the middle of the city so you may get some.

Great showers, free WiFi in the hotel (and in much of Sofia too). comfortable beds, the cheaper rooms aren't huge but find for a single or couple.

Would definitely recommend it and stay there again as long as I didn't get one of the two rooms with no view....

Room Tip: Rooms 205 and 305 are nice and quiet but the windows are frosted for a reason so don't open them...

This hotel is lovely with its old style charm. The elevator is quite small, enough for two people and two small luggage. The room was quite nice with seating, coffee maker, a different area for the bed, large bath in a large bathroom. I read previously that some people had problems with the windows not being transparent - which wasn't a problem. At least we were able to open the windows for ventilation. The hotel had a bar on the second floor where you can smoke inside and drink all night long. Luckily no one was there and we were able to enjoy the space and area al to ourselves. The staff was extremely helpful as they could. Overall a good experience and great location.

I stayed here many time from 1998-2001 and loved it then. It is just the same now. I was there on business. The staff are all tremendous, very friendly and helpful. Genuinely happy to look after guests. There was a pick up service to/from airport [including at the unseemly hour of 4am in my case]. Hotel in perfect central location with all business areas in easy walking distance. Most major Sofia tourist attractions also easily reached. I had a room overlooking the front with balcony with great view of Vitosha mountains [there are only one for two of these rooms]. Very comfortable room, powerful shower, great [free] wifi. You even get turndown and a chocolate sweet each night! Restaurant breakfast is all you can eat and good quality, evening meals also good. Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Sofia who wants to experience good Bulgarian hospitality.

Room Tip: Ask for a front-facing room
