Very satisfied
Hotel is coming out of quarentines and lockdowns. I think we were the only people in the hotel. Service was great!
KURTIS, ie2 night trip

Firstly do not book this hotel through Expedia. Do it direct. The hotel group were offering cancellations and changes to all bookings during the Coronavirus outbreak but Expedia were and still are refusing to budge. So the review for Expedia is TERRIBLE. But the hotel itself is beautiful. The Front Desk was welcoming and advised us that sadly all restaurants and bars were closed, as was the gym. We were told that Breakfast would have to be in the room and that only room service would be available. Our rooms on the third floor were very nice, with nice views of the City. Very comfortable bed and furniture. Wi-fi was perfect (and free). Concierge was very friendly and helpful and when we had our breakfast (we were in two rooms) the waiter was kind enough to let us have it together on the sofas and table outside our rooms. The breakfast was huge thank you. Everyone was friendly and helpful and worked very hard during this difficult time. We look forward to coming back to this hotel when the Coronavirus has gone but will book direct!

Great vacation stay at Balkan hotel in Sofia
This is a magnificent building, right in the heart of it all, historic and tourist points of interest, and shopping and restaurants. The breakfast is amazing, it will fulfill anything you have appetite for. From the person happily welcoming you, helping you with your luggage, the front desk staff , housekeeping staff and the staff during the breakfast are all attentive and striving to please.

Beds were amazing. we were woken up both nights, 1st morning. construction, 2nd morning cleaning services at 9am even though we were checking out at noon. they should have waited till we checked out to come into the room. The spa/sauna was pitiful, very sad. but the rooms VERY clean and comfortable. staff VERY wonderful over all.
