“MORE THAN I EXPECTED...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2011

Very nice hotel with polite staff, very good room amenities and well located.
Chose it due to reviews I had read and it was more than I expected!

One-two things that could be improved:
Room service was extremely quick but....don't order breakfast. Toast was very cold, half cup of coffee, croissant not eatable and cake was hard as a rock!
Housekeeping: Does not replace i.e. breakfast card which is of course is a detail.
Taxi pick up service: Taxi did not show up at airport !!! but taxis are a major problem in the city of Sofia and they really spoil everything else. Most are dirty, drivers smoke and they will rip you off !!! for a journey of apprx 1,5 klm I was asked for 40,00 LEV & the real cost was approx 2,00 LEV !!! Same problems with the taxi companies at the airport.
The only taxis I did not have a problem with were the ones ordered by the hotel.

Have been for a 7 night stay in Central Park Hotel (between the 14th and the 21st May 2009) and all I can say is that this hotel is fantastic (with some exceptions which I'm going to mention later).
First I would like to praise the staff in this hotel. They are great and will help you in all the needs. The hotel's location is perfect if you want to live the real city life. It is in walking distance from all the city's attractions. You can use taxis, trams and public transport, which are all well reached from the hotel. The hotel rooms are spacious, well decorated, and CLEAN.
The only things that I may critisize are: no swimming pool and no gym. Although there is wifi and free internet connectivity in all rooms, if you dont have a laptop you cant use the internet for free. You have to call the business centre and pay for the use. I suggest a kettle (coffee/tea making facilities in the rooms).
All in all, although the price is relatively not cheap, this hotel is a real good choise when visiting the beautiful city of Sofia. I will visit it again and stay in the same hotel.

A fantastic find after checking out of the terrible Rodina. This hotel is a clean and friendly with great rooms and fantastic bathrooms. The service is top notch - nothing is too much trouble.

I just returned from 2 days in Sofia, where I stayed at the Central Park. I travel to Sofia quite often on business. It is the first time I have stayed at the Central Park, because the other hotel we usually use has decided to price itself out of the market.

As it was my first stay at this new hotel, I was very apprehensive about what to expect.
What a pleasant surprise! The hotel is immaculate, very clean, and very centrally located.

The rooms are extremely well set up, with all the amenities one expects from a business hotel. Only one small negative note: the telephone is not located next to the bed, but on the main desk, which means you have to get out of bed to answer you wake up call.

The staff is great, very polite and helpful, with a good knowledge of English.

Breakfast also is of very high standard.

All in all a very pleasant experience and I will gladly stay there again on future visits to Sofia.

Unique architecture, new building, clean... Nicely furnished rooms, everything new! Location is excellent (next to NDK, on Vitosha Boulevard). I was with other people and they dealt with front desk, so I can't really judge the service, but everything else seemed very, very good...

central park hotel is a quality hotel i was impressed, uk hotels could learn alot from its little extras and service.

Sofia not a place i would wish to return to in a hurry, maybe in15yrs when after joining the eu new buildings and some no smoking areas are implemented.

The place needs a major cleanup, ive never seen so much dirt and dust.

On the positive the shopping is excellent,some quality restaurants,great trendy bars and clubs. Apart from the local music the music scene is cool.

Bulgarians are defo not down trodden or depressed, but trendy,cool.attractive people .

  • Liked — style service location
  • Disliked — smoking everywere but one dessignated floor
  • Tips/Secrets — be carefull,take taxis everywere, smog mask be usefull.
