2/10 Poor

major construction and cleanliness issues
They knowingly put us in a room next door to renovations/ construction so we were woken up at 9am on Saturday morning by drilling and loud banging. Their solution was to move us to a different room which added inconvenience since we had to re pack up all our stuff and move rooms. Once we got to our new room it smelt like cigarettes and the bathroom smelt like urine. Even when trying to shower the water wouldn’t drain and we had had to call the technician twice to fix the drain and to fix the safe. We will never stay here again.

Very friendly staff The hotel is very old but remodeled but still had that old vibe to it. I still can't figure out if I liked that old vibe or not. But overall pretty good stay.

10/10 Exceptional

We were given the updated deluxe room. It is small, but really modern and clean. The bathrooms are much better in the deluxe rooms. We've stayed in both. The best part of this hotel is the location. It is located on the main pedestrian street of Sofia with all restaurants, shopping, and sightseeing around.
