    Great location

    The hotel was very clean and luxurious. It was our second time staying at the hotel. The front desk staff and shuttle driver were excellent. They were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. However, during the first visit, we did not have a pleasant experience with the bellboy. We thought we might have caught him on a bad day. Unfortunately, he was still unpleasant on our second visit. If we have known, we would not have stayed there again. It was not the worth the price of the hotel rooms. Everyone else’s quality of service were consistent and superb.

    A luxurious hotel in Sofia.

    The hotel was very clean and luxurious. Front desk staff and the shuttle driver were very pleasant and welcoming. However, the bellboy was not. He was not happy with carrying our luggage. We were parked slightly away from the hotel because all the parking spots were taken and he said he could not bring our luggage in for us. He helped us bring our luggage to our room which we regretted. He was giving us an attitude and if we had known, we would have brought it up ourselves. In all, the hotel is beautiful. The front desk staff and driver were very pleasant. We wished our interaction with the bellboy was better.
