Excellent location but air conditioning does not work
Location and staff
Physical M&E needs a total evaluation. I suspect the chillers are way past minimal efficiency standards. Air conditioning does not work well at all. Very uncomfortable when temps reached 33C.
Large rooms, grand hotel
Excessively expensive minibar....daylight robbery..stock up beforehand!
Great hotel . Perfect location.room
Room was not well lit
Very good staff, very clean and the central location.
Breakfast was not included in the price and to have it seperately costed too much.
Very central location, next to the metro and the pedestrian area.
No plugs near the bed to plug in cell phone.
I liked the location,decor,linen
Poor choice of channels on tv, should have free movie channels. No tea making in the room. Ridiculous mini bar prices.
The wide corridors and soundproof rooms.
Excellent location and very good service as employees are fully dedicated to customers.
The only very bad point is the breakfast : medium quality and very poor choice, not cheap (21€).
Luxurious hotel in the centre of Sofia. Excellent hotel staff. Wonderful bed. Great view.
Room service rather expensive however prompt.
very comfortable hotel all the staff only too pleased to assist food in the restaurant first class
Comfort of bed, television and silence
Price of food and no parking
Sofia Hotel Balkan was built in 1956 as part of a new architectural trend: a fusion of classical design and lavish décor.The iconic building of the hotel is part of the President’s Palace complex and beneath its foundations lies a historical Roman fortress, the remains of which can be seen all around the hotel. The classical style blends in perfect harmony with the contemporary modernity of the restaurant, lobby bar and the newly refurbished guest rooms. Taking inspiration from Sofia’s rich architectural heritage, Restaurant “Labels” has been designed with opulence in mind. The intricate floor is inspired by the Byzantine mosaics and the accent gold metal and ceiling pay homage to the country’s history of gold smelting. The conservatory of the Lobby Bar “Basilica” pays homage to Bulgaria’s forests and acts as a winter garden in the cold months and a green oasis in the summer. Sofia Hotel Balkan offers sophisticated meeting rooms for gala dinners, weddings, conferences, special events.
