    My new favorite in Sofia.

    Great new luxury hotel in Sofia. First rate customer service within a beautiful modern hotel. Ask for a room over looking the cathedral. The view is beautiful, especially at night.

    The Sense is minimalist, impeccably clean and in the middle of town. Absolutely loved my stay. My only comment is coffee with breakfast should be included as part of the package. Other than that 5* all around.
