    The location is central and there's an easy access to the airport, about 5-6 euros, depending on traffic. All cab rides to the city center are under 3 euros. There are deluxe rooms, which are about 20euros more than the base room, it's worth it as the deluxe rooms are renovated recently. good service, good facilities, the gym is excellent.

    The reception staff is not very helpful, they try to pass the buck to someone else. I had two issues: the hot water in my room was coming and going making it difficult to take a shower. They receptionist said it was a technical issue and he would be talking to the appropriate people. This was on my second night. By the fifth night the issue was still not fixed! Also, the sheets were too short and didn't cover the matress in my room. The cleaning lady told me that this was an issue with all the kind size matresses. You would expect a hotel of this calibre to have the correct sheets for its matresses.... I had two separate reservations, one for 3 nights and one for 2 nights for a total of 5 nights; this created a bit of confusion, but we cleared it out.

    Service: - credit card, I've given as guarantee of booking was charged without my knowledge!!! - I had to pay additional "guarantee charges", before even receiving the key of the room.

    The view from the 17th floor and the garden

    The attitude of the receptionist and the server at the lobby bar served coke to a kid in a broken glas.

    The staff is very helpful, but this hotel is over price for what it offers. The decor leaves much to be desired. Rooms and ambience looks like stuck in the 1960s, plus in 2012 they only have cable internet in some rooms.

    Told the hotel staff I had parked my car on the street has I could not get in the hotel carpark has it was full they told me this was fine went to get the car later to fined I had been clamped this is very common thing and happened all the time room was very tired curtains fell down when I closed them had to change room but no better would not say here again

  • Couple

    Japaness garden, confortable bed

    unfriendly stuff- part off, the retaining of 1+1/2 price of the room on credit card, and had a very unpleseant way to explain it-as garantee, old tv, twin bed as duble bad, the pool- they told you when you go there you have to pay 5 euro, if you go with no breakfast included, the prices starts from 15 euro/persoan to 50 euro/person, the prices at minibar are big, a small water -200 ml is 5 euro ( to compare, normaly a bottle of 2l is 0,4 euro) CONCLUSION: an old comunist hotel renewed, far from the city center, better to avoid, definetly not a 5 star hotel!

    There is a covered parking place

    A strange way to serve the bulgarian citizens and the foreign ones. I am married for a foreigner. When we went to the hotel the room was booked on my name.Of course we registered both of us with our IDs. After a small trip round the city, we went back to the room where we found a message written and addressed to my husband:that the person who is taking care about the room is on the services on the gentleeman. Stange , looked like only one person is staying in the room and I found this a big unrespect to the woman.! For me before this case the hotel was one of the preferred ones, after this case people feel defend that they are not respect !

    Happy Sushi was phenominal.

    I did not like how they boasted five stars as it definately was not a five star hotel. Examples of shortfalls include: No ironing board/iron for individual rooms, Slow internet connectivity, dingy carpet in the lobby, limited spa facilities, and limited knowledge of tourist attactions by the concierge. The hotel has a very nice gym but no spa. So when I wanted to go to a sauna I asked the concierge if they knew of any alternative places to go and also on a separate occasion when I asked for restaurant reccomendations, they did not have any suggestions. They told me that there is a person who works as a guest/turist information guide but he was unavaiable at the time and during my four day stay I never saw him at the gueest info desk. They do offer massage but when my buddy and I went to get a massage they explained that they only have one female massuse on staff. So unless one of us was willing to get a rubdown from a dude we would have to take turns. This was a common theme at the hotel as it seemed that they were operating on a skeleton staff. Overall the hotel is fine for the price but I dont think they should be boasting five star status when it is obviously not!

    Service was appalling! Check-in and check-out procedures archaic with too few staff and "supervisors" who are totally ineffectual
