“Great Sized Suites in Great Location”
Reviewed 24 May 2012

The hotel quality was great. The hotel did take some time to find as google maps was definitely not accurate with directions. If you are driving, like I did, make sure you know how to get here because even locals didn't even know or have a recent map of the city. We ordered a room suite which was huge. There was a balcony that was huge with a decent view. The bathroom was really nice with a shower and bath separate. The bed was comfy and huge. The room was just huge and very enjoyable. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was cool how the hotel has a part to see that is the original part from the serdica. The location is extremely excellent. It's quiet and peaceful at night.

Stayed here for 7 nights on business. The staff was superb and the rooms were large and well furnished. Mkae sure you get a room that does not face the DISCO or you will be awake all night on Friday and Saturday. I was in room 410 and had no problem. The wireless internet is very slow, bring a cable for fast access in your room. Close to many excellent restrauants and bars.

Room Tip: Ask fro a room that does not face the Disco.

Good 5 star hotel, rooms spacious and bathroom with separate toilet a bonus. Bathrooms have great walk in shower area and separate bath. Very contemporary decoration and fixtures. My only complaint was at breakfast, which was good but should have more selection of hot dishes, and staff talking in breakfast room was off putting. The hotel is up a small cul-de-sac so not much to look out on. Spa massage was very good and generally the staff in the hotel were friendly and spoke good English. Unlike many hotels I have visited where the staff have a habit of looking busy when not actually doing anything useful, this was not one of them. Many times when exiting the lift at the front lobby I felt I was interrupting the reception staff from their daily chatter.

We stayed at this wonderful boutique hotel not knowing it was build on an old Roman Ruin. The service was wonderful, beds very comfortable, food good and close to the city Center. I would stay here again and again

Room Tip: We stayed in a suite - what a great way to experience this hotel

There is nothing really bad with the hotel, just that is majorely overratd with its 5*. It's rather a 3, maximum 4* hotel. Location is very good, makes it easy to reach anything by just walking. No parking places though, and is very hard to turn a car there, especially in winter with the snow blocking the whole street. The rooms are nice and clean, bathroom is very nice. The restaurant is rather poor, both as atmosphere and kitchen, bar the same (well, it's also a little exagerated to call it a bar, is more of a smoker area, without any style, old furniture). The staff is completely overstrained, they have no idea what they do, they all seem very new in this industry, they bump into you while caring things around and don't even bother to excuse themselves and what is really bad, is that their english is very, very poor and minimal, so missunderstanding were common practice. Wifi was terrible, hardly had a connection/signal. The business center shows as well the lack of organisation, with cables hanging around or making traps in between the feet.
But in the end, for the price, probably a third or even a quarter from european 4-5*, is fine.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the access point if planning to surf the net!

The hotel is located in the heart of the city, near by main administrative, financial and shopping buildings, as well as the cultural and historical sights.

The hotel has a modern architecture, but at the ground floor you can see the ruins of an ancient amphitheatre, dated from III century.
In the hotel are several restaurants, La Tribuna Bistro, Panoramic View Restaurant and Terra Antica Lobby Bar. The food was excellent with traditional and international cuisine and an extensive beverage list.

The room was spacious with a large bathroom (separate walk in shower and bathtub, separate toilet). The bathroom products had a high quality. Wifi internet was free and fast and with excellent in-room coverage. The gym was great and the spa treatments good.

From the hotel you can walk 10 minutes to the city center.

Room Tip: From the main street you cannot see the hotel enterance. Don't take a room on first floor near t...
