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... More

It was a horrible experience. The manager was nice and agreed to cancel the remaining booking and we moved to Radisson Blue, that is located in the best part of the... More

We booked this hotel for a weekend away. From pictures and outside, looks quite nice. Although the rooms were clean and bed comfortable, this is not 4* worthy. Breakfast was shocking. Only room for about 20 people. I had to share a table with strangers (not that this is a problem for me). We booked via booking.com and as genius... More

We got re-booked from another Best Western, which had a leakage. The room was a good size and faced the back, so noise was no issue from outside. But the ventilation system could not be turned off, so there was a constant noise of it. The room itself had an odd smell to it, so we had to keep the... More
