    As Bulgaria is black listed at the central bank in the country I am living so I could not make CC booking and after communicating with the Hotel they kept my booking and accepted cash payment at the end of my stay. (Non of my CC worked anywhere in Bulgaria..:(

    The Hotel is very very very very dated and reminds you of a bad movie form the 60's. several outlets are closed, the Japanese is run by a fast food chain and the mattress in my room was as old as the Hotel. I had to flip the mattress and use the spare pillows and place them as support under the mattress after the first sleepless night. No safe, no coffee maker only wired internet so don't bring your ipad (but speed was OK) Wireless in the lobby. Bathroom yellow tub and ceiling round and black corners, lighting all over very poor and on top broken bulbs in the room have not been changed. F&B price the highest in town - no wonder their outlets are empty - about 4 times as much as other places and good restaurants outside

    Huge hotel in a quiet area of downtown Sofia. Nice garden area.

    Computers in business center too slow. Rooms were musty.

    I had a pleasent stay at Kempinski Zografski. I had free car parking and free Wi-fi at the lobby. The pool was very clean and nice. The price was cost effective.

    I had stayed in a standart room. The room was clean but quite old. Breakfast was expensive.

    At this hotel, i did not have the air conditioning working properly.....their were no TV channeles in English ( virtually every other language was available ) their was no pay TV although it was advertised as locked........ On speaking to receptionist she did mention on this particular floor their was no pay TV ?

    Good breakfast but expensive. Great fitness center

    We expected to have a sauna facility but it was not in operation. This feature should be removed from hotel description on bookings.com when not in operation.

    This hotel does not feel like 5 stars. All the little touches that make a 5 star great are missing here

  • Single
    7.8

    Nice breakfast, clean, perfect view. The restaurant on the top is one of the best you can find in Sofia.

  • Single
    7.8

    The reservation system was very professional, as well as the hotel personnel. Conference room equipment was at high class.

    It's a bit away from the city senter and taxi has to be used. However helpful the personnel was to book a taxi, there are taxi drivers from the centre to the hotel charging too much (onece I paid 5 times more from the centre to the hotel than from the hotel to the centre).

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    vast modern room - but it was a deluxe. My ffriends were in standard rooms and they are olde - not Kempinsky level). Deluxe is very good value for 75 euros (breakfast for an additionnal 20 Euros! but I don't breakfast so...). Polite and helpful staff at reception.

    The staff in bars and restaurants is strange - wonder if they're rude or untrained or if they behave harshly with people they think are russian (I was with a group of russian friends)

  • Single
    7.0

    Many restaurants, nice lobby bar, nice panorama restaurants, free WIFI, good business hotel. Budda Bar is nice.

    Very expensive restuarants, expensive lobby bar, expensive mini bar drinks. There was a difference with my booking night rate and the rate the hotel had received.I was offered a room for disabled people. It was big but everything was placed very low of course. The limousine service is very expensive.
