Excellent hotel. Great food, outstanding service, very good value for money and very convenient for the Business Park. The best Holiday Inn I have ever stayed at - and if they were all to this standard, wouldn't think twice about staying with the Holiday Inn every time.

I never stayed in the hotel but what I can share in general is that Its virtue is its location in Business Park Sofia and if you have colleagues who come to Sofia for business trip to a company situated there, they can sleep 1 or half an hour more, since they can get to the office in 5-10 min....

It is a great hotel. The personnel is extremly pro and are doing an excellent job. Very clean. Probably more choices in the restaurant but still a very good one. One of my colleague was sick and the duty manager was with us all the needed time so a big thank you to him.

A nice hotel. Good breakfast (including black pudding!). I noticed, this trip, that then little chocolates are no longer in the rooms. And the 'welcome drink' for platinum members does not include beer (!). So somehow, I perceive that the service is not quite as good as it once was. Be careful with taxi drivers. The one that I had...
