I've stayed at this hotel quite a few times and can sincerely recommend it to any and every purpose. Even thought my visits to Sofia have been business related, when returning to my hotel, I almost feel like being on a vacation.
The atmosphere of the hotel in general is very relaxing - the decor in rooms happen to fit precisely to my taste. Rooms are large, beds comfortable - and who wouldn't like to have their own spa-like bathroom..? Also, the rooms are perfect for working (good/ok internet connection & spacious table etc.) If I could ask someting more, that would be coffee/tea facilities in the room.
The staff at the hotel are extremely professional and friendly and they have very good sensitivity on how to adjust to customer's expectations. I personally appreciate this a lot, since I've stayed my share at the Hiltons & Sheratons where you're lucky to get a smile from the receptionist.
The hotel has a restaurant, but I haven't tried that since the menu doesn't sound very tempting. It would though, in any other country, but I happen to be fan of traditional Bulgarian cuisine.. The buffet breakfast seems nice. When I have time for breakfast, I usually order it in room & it has been always very good.
Location of the hotel was propaby reason for my first visit. It is very central, but still in a quiet part of the centre. Previous reviewer mentioned a night club and noice related to that. I didn't even realise there is a night club & I also stayed there on weekend. I guess it depends where your room is located.
Only minus for Arena di Serdica is that every other hotel is a disappointment after staying here.. for example the hotel where I'm currently writing this review.
