“Good new hotel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2012 via mobile

I stayed for 3 nights in this brand new hotel, and found the price and hotel offering to be adequate. The hotel is well placed if you are visiting for business in the European Trade Center (across the street). A typical Novotel without any particular charm, but with a practical approach to what business travellers would expect. The room I had was spacious enough, with a nice bathroom (brown interior is not my favourite though) including a frosted wall on-demand, a flat screen TV, free wi-if, and a view over the main thoroughfare. The restaurant was adequate with decent service (perhaps due to few clients), and a short but acceptable menu. Only negative I experienced was the bathroom, where water from the shower splashed outside the cabin and on the carpeted floor adjacent to the bathroom (should not be necessary in 2012..). All in all a good hotel recommended for business travellers.

Stayed December 2012, travelled on business

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2012

I have already stayed 2 times at Novotel Sofia and I can already tell that I can recommend this hotel very much. My Opinion is, that I had there the best value ever in Sofia and very friendly Staff. Located between City Center and Airport the Hotel has a perfect location - just 5 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes to the city center with taxi.
This is really a convenient hotel for a short trip travelers. It is only 20 meters from the biggest shopping mall in Sofia. So, if you are a good shopper, this is absolutely convenient.
The best part is that the rooms are brand new and the interior is very modern with the highest quality of technology. What surprised me really is that instead of a wall there is a glass between the bathroom and the room. If you press one button this glass becomes transparent and if you press it one more time it becomes dim.
The restaurant is absolutely amazing together with the reception desk and the food is pretty good as well.
On the plus side, free wi-fi was very comfortable and also there was a free mini bar in the room.
