    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.

    Everything in general was great, specially reception personal who was really helpful to give advices about the city and just make the stay even more comfortable. Service was fast and professional. Placement was incredible , view was really beautiful and there was a nice balcony It's a hotel that's has this old charm of a real 5 stars hotel. Really enjoyed it! Would 100% recommend it!

    Bathroom cleanliness was more or less, that's the only negative thing I observed and was not well vacuumed after my second stay.

    location is great nice lobby rooms are spacious

    - precharge of more than the amount from booking.com on arrival/check-in (basically you have to be ready to pay an arbitrary sum when you check-in instead at check-out) - Coffee caps weren't refilled - One duvet cover for 2 people (very frustrating 1st night, reception was able to help on the next day) - In general - rooms need renovation, hotel is/was very nice but in dire need of renovation - Breakfast/Food at hotel is laughably expensive so it's always empty and hotel bar lacks atmosphere

About

Overview

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.
