Still a great value. I'll return
They've changed breakfast to buffet. It's modest as buffet's go but a big improvement over the previous system. Still appreciate the great location near the bus station and metro.

A difficult city
An unwelcoming city where we were ignored for service in a lovely restaurant near A. Nevsky Cathedrsl, and refused a ride back to hotel at taxi rank. A difficult city to enjoy. Hotel good an adjacent restaurant saved us.

Pain in the back...
Negative points are for the bed, it's too soft and not confortable. The hotel is nice, clean and have really good location.

Very Bulgarian!
Ideally situated, with a tram stop, trolleybus stop, bus stop and Metro station right outside and a short walk (10 minutes) to the main sights. Slightly 'tired' hotel but giving hints of a long and varied history. The staff were all very helpful. Other reviews had criticised the breakfasts - they were very simple but typically Bulgarian and I thoroughly enjoyed what was on offer; if you want the life style you have at home then it is best to stay at home. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to experience Sofia.
