    A classic hotel!

    The Central Hotel Sofia is a perfect hotel! It is easy to get to and within walking distance of major sites as well as the Metro. The room was perfect: quiet, clean, spacious and very comfortable. There isn't anything more one needs. The staff are friendly and helpful. A big thank you goes to Vladimir at the reception. He is so kind and so friendly.

    Pleasant small hotel in central Sofia.

    We were travelling with our college-age daughter so it was great to have two adjoining rooms at little more than the cost of one room capable of sleeping three. Rooms were well-supplied and modern. Staff were very helpful. Restaurant was average.

    Okay, no frills hotel

    This property is about a ten minute walk from the city centre where most attractions are. The area around the hotel is pretty run down. The hotel itself appears to be newly built. The rooms are clean and modern though the fixtures appear to be mostly residential quality. Breakfast is great. Staff is okay, offers to help, but does not. We were told that they work with a private tour company which is less expensive, but when we tried to book a tour, it wasn't really the case. Similarly, we were told that airport transfers are 8 euro per person, but when we tried to book, the price suddenly went up. I suggest not taking airport transfers from this property. If you are travelling with children, please ask if they can block some channels.

    good hotel compared to price

    Pro: clean, close to main shopping area Cons: always can hear water noises from upstairs, very noisy especially during night. Air conditioning is not working.

    Fantastic 4* hotel in downtown Sofia

    Hotel Central Sofia is a fantastic hotel, located right in the middle of the action in Sofia. Nevertheless, it is quiet and calm, and suitable for business travelers, couples and families alike. Very close to Sofia's main metro station, and a walking distance from most major attractions. The rooms are very modern and clean, with quality furniture. The bathrooms even have designer fittings, sinks and showers ( GUESS? ). The spa center is modest, and one needs to advise reception one hour in advance to use the facilities, but they are available and clean nonetheless. The breakfast buffet is excellent, and has options to please Bulgarian and other European guests, but also has options which will please North-American guests. During the evening, the restaurant offers good food at a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and helpful. I would say that the only real problem is the reliability of the WiFi, which could use some improvement. All in all, highly recommended.

    Bring your googles and assertive voice

    Stayed for 3 nights with 2 friends. In short: had a flooding bathroom, staff were contradictory, inconsistent and lied to us, and ultimately only assisted when we threatened them with a bad review. Main issue: after showering, our bathroom FLOODED (the floor looked like one of the Great Lakes). The receptionist appeared horrified, said they would prepare another room for us or look at the problem and fix it. They sent housekeeping to give us an extra towel - in our brief conversation, it was clear she only spoke Bulgarian (we only spoke English). When we came back in the evening, we asked about our room. New receptionist told us the problem had been fixed, and that they wouldn't switch our room because we had a conversation with the housekeeper (impossible) saying we didn't want want to move. We didn't protest to staying in the room as they said the problem had been fixed. Next morning: same FLOODED bathroom. We went down again; receptionist again shocked by photos and said they would prepare a different room for us after we returned from our tour. We returned in the evening, and a different receptionist told us they would not give us a new room, as we were much too late to switch rooms. We protested, saying that was the opposite from what they had said that morning. They said we hadn't let them in to fix it, we said that was untrue. We threatened a bad review; they said they'd prepare a new room for us "shortly". 1.5 hours later, we had a new room.
