Found the basic 'superior' room I had comfortable with a great view to the back of Sofia with the mountain.
Found food and beverage in the hotel almost as expensive as any other 5 star hotel in Western Europe, and you need a taxi to get to and from the centre.
Large comfortable hotel with friendly reception staff, large public areas with bars, restaurants and nice grounds. Pool though, a bit dated and more like a public swimming pool.
