I visited this hotel for a business meeting. The architecture is like a labyrinth. It seems to have different wings and different elevators, since the hotel is based in two different buildings. The reception is very helpful. I found breakfast ok, but my colleague had diaroia. Don't it in the restaurant boufet cause they serve yesterday's.

The hotel is good though unimpressive. The hotel is just off a major street and within walking distance to all attractions. The rooms are simply furnished. A big plus is the abundant breakfast. A negative is the very weak wifi signal.

Very convenient hotel on a small and quiet street. However, very centralized and in a few minutes walking distance to central sites. Very easy to go around the main attractions of Sofia. Also not far from the airport and the hotel has a shuttle if you need one to and from the airport.

Let me start by saying the staff are really friendly and helpful, and the location is great easy for walkers, and taxis are extremely inexpensive for everyone else. The room was a little subpar/dated, but it is totally adequate. It was my first time in Bulgaria, so perhaps this is typical or maybe better than average accommodation by Sofia standards

We stayed in City Hotel, BW Premier in Sofia for a night but it was so close to the city center that we didn't use any transportation in order to visit some of the many interesting sights. Cheap parking (5e per day), nice and clean rooms, good breakfast (always space for improvement), kind and helpful staff (english fluent). These are...

At the heart of the city with a very pleasant atmosphere. Friendly staff and high quality service. I recommend the restaurant for every type of occasion. Convenient location for meetings, in the modern atmosphere of the lobby bar with nice aromatic coffee. I highly recommend!
