    Recent stay

    I have used the hotel on a number of occasions previously. Very convenient location to get into Sofia, and leave the city in most directions. I had an issue with the bed, and the staff quickly gave me another room, no questions asked. I'll be happy to go back.

    Reception desk agents need training

    Fair is all i can say since the hotel room looks good, but their reception desk concierge needs face overhauling ( no smile, no features like he is a deadman walking) in addition to some customer satisfaction focus training.

    Avoid, services advertised not available!

    Upon arrival we were informed that we could not use the spa, one of our main reasons for selecting this hotel, as it was closed! Furthermore all the restaurants were closed and food was only available in the bar where there were no table clothes on the tables. The icing on the cake was that there were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room and when we asked for a kettle, they said that I could hire one but it would cost €5 a night! The advertised free minibar was actually two tins of beer and two bottles of apple juice, wow would not the description that comes to mind 😳

    Great hotel for business purpose

    Super hotel. Everything was great. They also have a small, but a very good bar where you can eat great food. Good parking for the car. Not far from the business park

    I have used this hotel before, so I choose it deliberately. Clean, good parking, and very convenient. This time the restaurant was not working so the only food one can get was at the bar.

    Well appointed hotel close to airport

    Very comfortable hotel and well maintained. Great to be met at airport with a free shuttle and located just 5 mins from airport. Unfortunately the spa area wasnt working during our visit due to Covid restrictions. Nice bar area.
