Myself and two friends stayed here for one night in June and it was a very nice clean and comfortable hotel. We had a very large room and it was nice and quiet away from the main road. The hotel offered parking and breakfast. the only issue we had was that the checking service was very slow and took a...

Let's begin with the positive remarks, good warm room rather beautiful, good nice hotel ,a good breakfast with a variety but awful awful coffee. The personnel was not helpful and I can't say that they were very polite. The room when we arrived was clean but the everyday cleanliness was medium. Best travellers' choice definitely not in my opinion.

Disappointing distance from Serdika metro station,more than ten minutes which means that it was not central.The room was on the sixth floor, a spacious attic with interior view. It was clean and the staff was friendly.The breakfast was nice.The neighborhood was not pleasant.,too.

We spent four nights at the Best Western Plus Bristol. The location of the hotel is good, a 5-10 minute walk to the metro station, also to Vistosha - a street with lots of shops and restaurants, also 10 minutes to the Mall of Sofia. There’s a tram stop just down the street too so getting around is easy. Check...

Only stayed one night but the room was vast, very well supplied and the WiFi worked fine. So was able to work and complete tasks prior to the meeting I'd booked the stay for. Transfer from the airport was quick and tram stops just along the street make for getting around easy. Breakfast was fine and as I was about...

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of days during our stay in Sofia. In comparison with Bansko's hotel this was quite nicer, concerning the decoration and public spaces was good. The room was ok with all the needs. The big problem was that from the w.c.(sink) was coming a very annoying smell from the 1st day. We thought...

The Bristol hotel is not the best location in Sophia, there are other more adequately located hotels if you prefer walking around, although it is not very far from many of the attractions. The hotel entrance is a little sad and the elevators are not in a great shape. The Wall paper in the rooms along with the furniture make...
