I chose the HI Sofia, as i regularly use HI and am a Platinum member.
On check-in you get a very nice letter, but in reality it is just a sales pitch with no actual benefits from the loyalty programme. No bonus points allocated as is the norm in 90% of HI globally. You get a 'free' drink from a locally produced beer can, but if you try to order the same in the bar the price is 7 times the price. Food is extortionate (Even compared to western Europe), and pretty poor in quality. I would recommend the subway just 50m from the hotel. There is a 14 Lev charge for airport transfers, and im sure this rate depends where you come from. I would avoid this hotel if you are a tourist, but on business it is 'OK'...
