The Lion Hotel is a bit of an oddity, very central, part of a small chain... My room on the first floor corner was large clean and surprisingly quiet despite large windows onto a busy junction... reasonably priced, though many staff have little English and a desire for you to pay on arrival. Minibar well stocked and reasonable as these things go... but breakfast is in a coffee / pastry shop on the ground floor and was included. On the first 2 days a very 'Bulgarian' buffet' was provided with no options other than water melon, cheese, ham and sliced bread, thermos coffee with plastic beakers, and orange fruit drink. then day three and subsequent days a 6 option menu was produced with cooked options of various alternatives, fresh coffee... but no alterations allowed! The young staff are charming, the older somewhat take it or leave it... but excellent location and price.
