    We stayed here for a 5 day trip to visit the city of sofia. The hotel is within walking distance to the city centre and has many local shops and cafes nearby. Public transport right outside the hotel and the hotel itself is small and very comfortable. Lots of praise goes to the staff at the hotel who were very very helpful and friendly. It was my wifes 50th Birthday during our stay and I aksed the recepition staff for help in surprising her when we returned from the day by buying me some flowers to have in the room. Not only did they arrange this but Geri, the duty manager even offered to have a free bottle of wine waiting. When we returned my wife was trully humbled to find the flowers, wine and two glases and even a card a letter from the staff to wish her a Happy Birthday. This is a really nice hotel, very nice hard working staff and we will be visiting again. Thanks to all for making it a well worth stay.

    If anything needs to be mentioned that my only fault was the Breakast. The cooked items were often not available and what was left was cold.

    Modern design. Receptionists vaw very frendly.

    Very small rooms, poor lighting in the bathroom, small wardrobe bathroom with shower, where the water came out of the cabin and filled the whole bathroom including getting up in the room breakfast very poor, the person in charge of breakfast was overwhelmed, completely air. One day we were not put towels in the bathroom. Area where the hotel is located is not very pleasant not a 4 star hotel and do not know how it was classified as

    Excellent balance (for me, of course, this is personal) between price and quality/service. 'This location is definitely better than a typical U.S. Best Western, it's much more on the lines of a regular Marriot. This place has a very creditable restaurant, and the fasted WiFi I have ever had in a hotel (I was able to stream movies through vpn with the same clarity/quality as I get at home, and without any buffering time). Staff spoke very creditable English, and were helpful. Also, there's a free walking tour that departs from near the hotel daily (actually, twice daily I think). Take it, and give them a good (10Leva plus) tip. It's great, and the folks running it are really helpful explaining all sorts of things about Sofia, local restaurants, places to enjoy. They are at free sofia tour dot com, or something like that (google will find them :)

    The hotel was consistently excellent, a side note however, for travelers new to Bulgaria; the taxi-cabs are dubious at best. I was careful to try to choose a licensed/legitimate cab when leaving the airport, it had all the right markings, and I'm still pretty sure ti was legit. However, I was charged 72 Leva for the trip into town (and given a receipt!) I was given change in a mixture of Euros (which aren't really "legal tender" in Bulgaria, and one Romanian coin. I discovered on my return that the proper fare was more like 15 Leva. Further, every cab that I took through the week claimed to have "no change" and managed to nearly double their fares on each occasion. So, the proper way to get a cab from the airport is--I was told by the hotel, to go to an actual desk/counter, and "book" a cab from there. To the center of Sofia, the price at the end of 2012 should probably be in the region of 12-15 Leva. They are ready for your tip, of course, but if they quote you over 20, and you're going to this hotel, or less far, then it seems there's a good chance you found another cheat. Also, keep lots of small bills when riding cabs generally, and ensure they turn on their meters properly so you can get a receipt. All that said, _everything_ else about Bulgaria was wonderful!

    Superb

    New Hotel, relatively small rooms (the one we stayed) but equipped with everything You need: 32 inch LED TV, central heating, carpet, huge toilet with tush carbine, Wi-Fi excellent (2.5 Mb for download). Breakfast excellent, with everything You need, like a 5 star Hotel, I recommend it. Stuff is very friendly, always ready for You to help You, so my recommendation for this Hotel is also the people who work in it. The Parking lot is not far from the Hotel, and the stuff is at any time ready to get Your car or to walk with You to it.

    The less problem is that 90% of the Taxi drivers didn't know the exact location of the Hotel which is very strange because it is on the main street (they said that there are 4-5 Best Western Hotels in Sofia), but You may say to them to take you to the Niagara restaurant, and than You are at home. Maybe the room was near the elevators so sometimes we can hear noise from outside.

    A well cared for hotel, located about 10min walk from the city centre. Staff were helpful and friendly, breakfast provided reasonable choices. Room was compact. We asked for a quiet room which was provided(not facing the main road). There was some noise until late but to be expected when you are in close proximity to other buildings.

    Location was not particularly interesting!
