    Great location, dated bathrooms.

    Best location in Sofia, right on the main street with all cafes and restaurants and shopping, and all touristy sites. The hotel is a luxurious remnant of old socialist times, when it was the fanciest hotel in town. Now despite some renovations, it is quite dated in the main areas. The room has been nicely updated but the bathroom is still dated. It is all marble but the marble is cracked and broken in places.

    Very nice hotel and amazing reception service.

    The room was very nice, the staff in the reception were very very nice and helped us with everything we've asked :-) thanks for that. Hotel Location is the BEST in Sofia!!! We were located on the 6th floor so we could use only one elevator (little bit slowly but not so much). The big issue was with housekeeping. They didn't clean our room 3 days (out of 6 nights) event thought the 'cleaning' sign was set in the room door. We also asked for cleaning few times in the reception. Looks like the housekeeping ladies try only once a day (i think very early in the morning) and if you are in the room, they never come back or knocking the door to ask if cleaning in needed, Just skip your room for that day :-( Parking costs 15 euro for 24 hours.

    Good location for exploring the city. No parking.

    Big hotel located right at the center of the city. Great for exploring the city by foot. Old style building (actually built at 1956). We got a small but nice and comfortable room. No views from the small window. Its not exactly clear why this hotel deserves a "5 star' rating. No pool or special services. No parking ! (We were told that the parking outside the hotel belongs to the city and we were charged 15 Euro per day for parking).

    Firstly do not book this hotel through Expedia. Do it direct. The hotel group were offering cancellations and changes to all bookings during the Coronavirus outbreak but Expedia were and still are refusing to budge. So the review for Expedia is TERRIBLE. But the hotel itself is beautiful. The Front Desk was welcoming and advised us that sadly all restaurants and bars were closed, as was the gym. We were told that Breakfast would have to be in the room and that only room service would be available. Our rooms on the third floor were very nice, with nice views of the City. Very comfortable bed and furniture. Wi-fi was perfect (and free). Concierge was very friendly and helpful and when we had our breakfast (we were in two rooms) the waiter was kind enough to let us have it together on the sofas and table outside our rooms. The breakfast was huge thank you. Everyone was friendly and helpful and worked very hard during this difficult time. We look forward to coming back to this hotel when the Coronavirus has gone but will book direct!
