Our one night stay was fine. Area is a bit sketchy but a quick walk to Vitoshka and NDK. Staff was friendly. Recommend for a short stay.

2/10 Poor

A week ago I stayed in this hotel for a night . Soon after my check in I realized that when you switch on the air condition , there is a water leaking in my room .The room was in the fifth floor and it was a warm and sunny day . I went down to the reception and the person who was there tried to avoid me , but eventually I managed to convince him to come and to see what is going on in the room . He asked me If I opened the window , because , in according with him that could be the reason for the water to insert in the room ( it was a dry and sunny day ,as I mentioned before) , I explained him that I didn't open the windows . Then I asked him to change room as it was very warm there and I needed an air condition and he refused. He brought a plastic kit which was placed below of the AC so that water won't drop in the floor ..He said to me that he is not an engineer and as such there is nothing he could do about the problem. He said that it is possible his boss to come after a while and to see the air condition , but it was obvious that he lies , and indeed nobody came again . Then he left from the room and returned in the reception .During our conversation I spoke to him in Bulgarian and for some reason he responded me in English . I visit Bulgaria all my life and used to live there . This man apart form the fact that he was unhelpful and rude ,for some reason he tried desperately to show me that he really don't care about the problem I faced as a client of this hotel .

They gave me a room in the fifth floor during a quite warm day in the end of May . I realized soon that it is not possible to use the air condition , because If I tried to switch it on ,water started to drop from it . I went immediately to the reception in order to ask for help and I found there a young man who initially didn't want to come at all and to see what is going on , but eventually I managed to convince him to come with me in the room. When he saw the air condition he asked me If I opened the windows , because , as he said that could cause water to insert in the room (?) and I explained to him politely that I didn't open the window ( the weather outside was good , it was a warm sunny afternoon ). then he went in another part of the building and he brought a plastic kit to prevent the water to fall in the floor and he placed it below of the AC .I asked him to give me another room as it was quite warm there , but he refused.he said to me that he is not an expert and he can not repair the air condition and there is nobody who could help . Then he said that may be his boss will come in a while to check the machine , but ,as I expected , that never happened . Then he just left from the room and he returned in the reception .For some reason which I don't understand I spoke to him fluently Bulgarian and he answered in English ( I speak Bulgarian with all my Bulgarian friends ) .The room was very warm .
