The Sofia Hotel Balkan is a very good hotel located in the hart of Sofia. This hotel is perfect for business travelers or couples looking to spend time in the city. While on the pricey side, you get a lot for your money. I was booked in a junior executive suite. The room was very large and clean. The best...

The hotel is very convenient in the centre of Sofia. The reception is efficient, the rooms are comfortable and the service is good. The breakfast buffet is good. There is a lot to see in the neighbourhood and very good restaurants nearby.

We stayed here on an overnight stay in Sofia would highly recommend this hotel. The room was beautiful with the most amazing bed it was so comfortable. We did not eat here so I can't comment on that but location, staff and surroundings was all excellent.

We arrived just after lunch after a quick check in by a friendly staff member we were shown to our room. This was a "classic room" it was fine over looking the front of the hotel ( we didn't notice much noise during our stay ) . The room was cleaned every day and toiletries refreshed. The hotel is in...

Visited the Sheraton in Sofia whilst on a family vacation. Huge rooms with a great complimenting breakfast. Prices can get pretty expensive but when considering the location and the hotel rating I guess they are reasonable. Hotel services are exceptional. Slightly disappointed in the gym facilities.

It is an excellent place in the heart of the city, former Sheraton, now Luxury Collection, a luxury building from the 50s with amazing conference rooms and excellent service. Traditionally this is the place where visitors come for business meetings, but over the weekends you can see a lot of tourists too.

Excellent location, in a point in the centre of Sofia, very near to trasportation. Big bed, very polite staff, average breakfast, restaurant and cleaning service for a five star hotel. For its price it could be better...

Dear sir,

The bus station is not far from the hotel. You may use the Subway for 2 stops or even to walk for about 20 minutes in case you do not have too much luggage. The option with the taxi is an easy one and the charge should be less than 10 BGN. All of the taxis are yellow and they have a meter, but look at the tariff before getting on, the regular one is 0.80 BGN per km. during the day and 0.90 BGN per km during the night. Whether they speak English... well unfortunately - not really, just a small part of them do. If there is anything else that we may be helpful with, please let me know at any time at all.

Best Regards,

Dellan Doichev

Dear travelers,

Thank you for your question and interest of using the Sofia Hotel Balkan's facilities,

I would like to remind you that extra charges like internet, spa treatment and parking are considered as non eligible and the SPG members do not get points for them.

I hope that this information will be helpful.

For anything else as mentioned in the previous email you are welcome to ask at the reception desk at any time at all we will be happy to assist you.

Sincerely yours,

Dellan Doichev
