“nice hotel... but they can improve”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2012

The hotel itself is really really nice. Very clean, nice and big rooms, nice restaurant.
But some of personal at the reception had troubles both speaking and understanding English. And when some inconvenient happened with the shuttle for the airport (nothing serious, but slightly annoying) the guy at the reception were not that polite.
Really nice hotel, but the service can improve!

A walk takes only 5-10 minutes to "G.M. Dimitrov" Metro Station, which makes the hotel conveniently situated. Rooms have enough free space and some- nice balcony with beautiful view. When it comes to meal time, it seems as the hotel is uncrowded. But who would miss smoked salmon and selection of French cheeses for breakfast?

Room Tip: Go for a room with a view of Vitosha Mountain- it worths.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

Although I’m in Sofia regularly for business, this is the first time I’ve stayed here, and I was impressed. Vega Hotel has nice rooms – spacious, and well fitted-out - positive staff, good bar food, excellent breakfasts with a terrific spread on offer, and free wi-fi all through hotel (other hotel keepers like Hilton Sofia: take note).

The main downside is that Vega’s not in a perfect location, unless your workplace is nearby – though for the airport, the Business Park, or the offices along Tsarigradsko Shosse it’s fine, and taxis are easy. I don’t want to overplay this… Sofia is small, and the roads around Vega generally are fast-moving.

The room safe in my room was tiny - too small to store a laptop, which for a business hotel is a bit daft. And my room had a faint smell of cigarette smoke – would be great to have no-smoking floors.

Apart from these minor quibbles, I enjoyed my three-day stay a lot. A pleasant and efficient hotel, which deserves to do well. I hope to be back.

Very good hotel, convenient location near the ring road. Easy parking and good breakfast. One of the best coffee I've tried in a hotel.

Staff were very helpful. 15 minutes from the airport by taxi. Room was good, comfortable and clean. Bed was little hard. Heating too loud, but in the bathroom was cold. Breakfast was good. I had a problem with internet connection.
