Great service great rooms. The daily breakfast buffet is delicious. It is not central to any touristic area but it’s a healthy walk to the metro. Anyway Sofia has great public transportation and taxis are inexpensive compared to other European countries and the U.S. renovations are schedule to end in the next few months.

This is a beautiful hotel in the heart of Sofia. While under renovation they have done their best to ensure a fantastic stay. Amazing breakfast and the restaurant OXBO serves amazing Bulgarian meals. Top notch service. Ask for a room upgrade and you will be provided free breakfast, restaurant discounts and free items from minibar. Great value. Ample parking on site. Would stay again.
