    Don’t stay there!

    I have reside in this hotel for many times throughout the last four or five years. Unfortunately it’s deteriorating very quickly in every aspects. The Air condition doesn’t work, furniture are very old and it looks outdated and thier staff didn’t have the energy to serve. I stayed in thier superior rooftop-suite. Unfortunately the Air condition system wasn’t working (very old and noisy too). I couldn’t sleep all nightlong. In the morning they offered to move me to the next-door suite. After moving all my stuff, we found out that the air conditioning system doesn’t work either. When we called the maintenance they said this is what they have take it or leave it. And you guessed it, I didn’t take it and I left to the next competitor, a great new five stars hotel.

    Super Good Hotel and Impeccable Service.

    This is by far the very best hotel I've ever been to throughout all my travels. The service is superb by every member of the hotel's team. The rooms are spacious and I mean they are very large and beautifully furnished as well supplied with all the amenities you could possibly need. The bed and pillows are heavenly comfortable. The hotel is spotless clean and so was our room. We truly loved our stay and we wished we had more time to enjoy the hotel. The location is convenient and within a short walk to all the major attractions and lots of cafes and restaurants. I highly recommend this hotel for an enjoyable and unforgettable experience. A heartfelt thanks to the entire team at Grand Hotel Sofia for a job well done!
