  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We very much enjoyed our stay at Hotel Geneva! The room was very spacious - double bed, plus a single bed, table with 2 chairs and was set up for making coffee, large TV, new and spotlessly clean large bathroom, and also a patio! We were impressed. Delicious variety of food at breakfast. Both the reception staff and cleaning staff were friendly and helpful: turning on the sauna for us ahead of time so it could get up to temperature, allowing us to use their computer to check in for our flight and print boarding passes, calling taxis for us to get us where we needed to go. Very helpful. The hotel is a 5-minute taxi drive away from the pedestrian shopping street and landmarks, costing about 4 leva (2 Euros) - taxi ride back to the hotel via a different taxi service cost more. The area can also be reached by the trams (we did not use them). I recommend this hotel.

    The location is pretty good if you want to stay near the bus station that goes from Sofia to Rila Monastery. There’s a tram in the main road in front of the hotel that goes right to the city centre. Breakfast was pretty decent. Room is big and clean but there’s a shared balcony with other rooms so make sure the window is locked. Overall comfortable stay

    Nice, quaint quiet area hotel

    Nice place, a bit smaller than you'd expect from the pictures. It's in a quiet area. I left early and changed hotels as I needed to be closer, but this was a pleasant experience!

    Honest and Genuine Review

    Check in was perfectly acceptable and everything was explained well. The room described as luxury Junior sweet was large but dated, not luxury. The room was clean, however the carpet badly stained which was off putting. Beds were very comfortable and sheets smelt beautiful. Shower & bath were both excellent. First night at 4am banging and shouting from the room immediately above followed by loud music which went on for an hour. After 45 minutes I contacted reception, 15 minutes later the noise ceased. Speaking to reception the following morning I was assured there would be no repeat and the guests in question would be spoken to. Unfortunately the same happened again that evening, although it was resolved this time in 30 minutes. Breakfast was acceptable but repetitive. Good coffee, croissants, eggs, cheese, cereals etc., so what you would expect. The meal in the restaurant on the evening was wonderful. This hotel could be lovely with the right changes. Modernise the rooms and offer some variations at breakfast.

    The hotel is situated in a not so good area of Sofia, the apartment was large and clean with a fridge, tv, and clean towels,a lift operates between floors, after a shower we where the bar was but was told it’s private and not for hotel residents as there wasn’t any facility for food in the hotel we asked where we could eat and was told a Greek restaurant nearly a quarter of a mile away
