Reviewed 17 May 2014

I use this hotel for more than 4 years, for my business trips in Sofia. Very pleasant staff. Not noisy during the night. Confortable bads. Internet and AC. Very clean rooms. Easy access to main business destinations or exits from the city.

Room Tip: Choose the 2nd floor, which has a small loby and a printer

I stayed there for three nights and really enjoyed it a lot. Very clean, rooms are adequately spaced, with all amenities required for a short trip. The staff is very professional and courteous, every special request like taxi service, wale-up call, late check-in or early check-out was handled with a smile. There are several restaurants and bars in very close vicinity and walking distance, also supermarkets and a modern shopping center, so one doesn’t have to drive far for food, drinks or shopping. Fitness area is decent and good for a small work out. Breakfast is fresh und sufficient to start the day. Only thing I missed was an open hotel bar which already closes at 7 p.m. so one has to physically leave the hotel.

The rooms were lovely, as in nothing amazing but exactly what you're getting for the price.
The staff were consistently lovely, attentive and this convinced us to stay extra here.
I didn't like the old key system they had which meant you had to lodge your key with the receptionist however, (given that pubs/clubs don't really close there) There was never any hassle or questions about times we came or went during our holiday.
Obviously we were always extremely lovely to them but every day which we thanked them and tipped them (equivalent in euro, our daily tip was 2) , resulted in bigger bonuses in our room every day after cleaning.
Initially a bit of chocolate to culminate on our last night in a bottle of Jameson (Don't what that say about our impression)

All in all a really easy going down to earth place. The difference in paying for a room like this (especially between 2) it is well worth paying the extra 10-15 euro above a hostel.
During a quiet period/season they are open to haggled on the room price if it's more than 2 days.

Got an upgrade to a higher standard room which I appreciate a lot. Room was very big and spotlessly clean. Wireless Internet worked smooth and fast. Breakfast offer medium quality.
Very friendly and helpful receptionist.
The lighting in the room was a bit dim; particularly above the working table a lamp was missing. For some people maybe a bit far from the center.

We had a very pleasant stay at this property recently on a business tour. It is really an elegant hotel that provided friendly services. Rooms are luxuriously appointed with all the things needed by travelers. Washrooms are big and functional. Everything looked promising and good. All the guy here did a great job. Highly recommended.

Stayed for two nights while on business in Bulgaria. The hotel is located only about 15 minutes from the airport and a taxi will cost you about 6 euro. I used OK Taxi. There is free wifi and the rooms have everything you need. A decent number of english TV channels as well in case you get bored. The staff was friendly and service minded and check in and out was as quick as you could expect. The breakfast served is rather basic but considering the price for the rooms it is good value for money overall.
I can also really recommend the restaurant next door. It might not be the cheapest but very high standard.

Room Tip: I would prefer not to stay on the ground floor.

I stayed at this property for a week recently. Excellent location, basic but well kept rooms, fast Internet and good quality breakfast. The staff was capable and helpful. My only complaint was their approach to sustainability. I'm all for liquid soap containers at the sink and in the shower but it is more 'hand soap' quality than something you'd want to use on your hair. Suggest bringing your own shampoo and conditioner. Also they have a motion detector that turns the lights on in the hall when you exit the elevator -- that's fine, but the motion detector does not stretch down the hall. When you leave your room you have to feel your way down the hall in the dark until the motion detector finds you.

The hotel is close to restaurants including 5 inside the Kempinski hotel right next door. I recommend this property for an excellent value and good but basic rooms.
