    Great room, great service.

    • Stayed 4 nights

    The only mildly negative points would be that the hotel is a slightly tiring 20 minute walk away from the centre of town (but you could take a taxi) and the beds aren't super comfortable.

    This hotel was wonderful. The room was large and comfortable with a kitchenette and sofas which was a welcome sight to weary travellers! The staff were extremely helpful and polite and the room rate is very good for what you get! The wi-fi was strong and the bathroom was lovely.

    Nothing!

    These are large comfortable apartments in a secure block with 24 hour reception. Would recommend using taxis for arrival & departure (which are very inexpensive) as it's a bit of a trek from the nearest Metro. The walk into the town centre takes about 10-15 minutes. We had 5 apartments for 7 friends so stacks of space. Everyone had their own bedroom and living space and no one paid more than £30 a night (November 17). The heating was very good and a cleaner came everyday. We generally walked in the daytime but got taxis back in the evening for about £2-3. There is a good bakery almost opposite but most of the restaurants are around the centre.

    In the upper corner of the three main rooms there are devices that look like hidden cameras. I can't fully confirm what they are since I didn't ask to the hotel staff about the purpose of them. Normally smoke detectors are located in the center of the room not in the corners.

    I liked the location in terms of it was a 12 Minute walk to the centre however i enjoy this as i get to see the different aspects of the city as opposed to being in the centre all the time. When you have a short distance to walk it gives a much better insight which i enjoy.

    A delightful stay in Sofia

    I have no negative comments to make.

    The staff were both friendly and extremely helpful and accommodating. The location was idea for me with ample choices of places to eat or have an after dinner drink. The apartment was comfortable and the kitchen had everything I needed to feel at home. I only intended to stay a week or so but ended up staying a month. I would definitely stay again on my next trip to Sofia.

    Lighting in the sitting room is very poor. Ask to change the bulb with a stronger one and remove the yellowish glass cover. Ask for additional lamp. The TV is a tiny one (19 inch). In the bedroom there is a big cupboard. Please ask to replace the very thin wire hangers with 'normal' ones.

    Tourist Studio: two small rooms. One bedroom with quite confortable double bed and a sitting room with kitchenette. Nice bathroom with shower cabin, plenty of hot water and well heatrd in the winter. Quite central location.

    The main disadvantage of this appartment-hotel is lighting: the corridor between the lift and the rooms is completely DARK and one has to look for the light in darkness. The living room is a small one and also bad-lighted. I asked for additional lamp and was given one.

    Very nice bathroom: well lighted and heated (weather was extremely cold) with cabin shower - something rare in Bulgarian apartments. The staff is friendly and helpful.

    Lock and the key of the door are very annoying, difficult to use it. When You exit the lift on the floor you get in the darkroom and have to walk few steps in th total darkness to switch on the light. That is dangerous. New young receptionist was clumsy and unprofessional. It took 15min to call taxi and do Check-out and I was the only one there!

    Big flat, clean and serviced everyday, many clean towels daily, kind staff.

    The evening receptionist is awful, arrogant. No support where to park the car. It was a plus for me that I know bulgarian, otherwise I could not find a place. He is a disgrace for the hotel - he even asked for the umbrella back and to not use it because it belonged to the hotel. They do not inform you for the wifi code, the rooms are cold especially when outside was only 8 Celsius during the night.

    The positon of the hotel is good, the morning receptionist who offered an umbrella for the raining outside

    The beds were not super comfortable and you can hear other occupants walking and talking. My biggest issue was with the neighboring building. They had outdoor parties two nights in a row, yelling and singing into the wee hours.

    I got a studio apartment, it was comfortable. The location is great, walking distance to some of Sofia's landmarks, 5 minute walk to Serdika Metro station. The kitchenette was fully equipped, pots, plates, cutlery, coffee maker. Check in and check out were a breeze.
