This is not a hotel for the normal tourist. The hotel is way out of Sofia centre, but if you have business in the business park this is great! The rooms are really nice and clean and the breakfast is good.

Fortunately the taxi is not costing more than...

We were there only for 1 night, but wished we could've stayed longer. Everything in this hotel was luxurious. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and I cannot say enough about the bathroom.

Business hotel located far away from city center. If you are on wheels it's OK. Clean, spacious rooms. Excellent bathroom and shower. As Platinum I was upgraded to some kind of family room. Swimming pool and sauna on the ground floor are very well organized and clean, also. Really friendly and helpful staff.
