    Great location very central next door there St George’s iconic cathedral. Staff were fantastic- nothing too much trouble, warm, courteous, prompt and efficient.

    Slightly tired decor wise as is do often the case with the” Grand old Dame” hotels

    We liked the location of the hotel.....right next to pedestrian area with many restaurants and shops. Souvenir market a short walk away. Ruins and digs close by and very interesting. The food was excellent at the restaurant and the breakfast buffet. Nice well appointed room and we were lucky enough to get an upgrade overlooking the dig with ruins. Most important sites in the old town are within walking distance.

    THE SAFE THE SAFE THE SAFE. Our safe was in a dark closet with no light and on the floor of the closet. You had to lay down on the floor and try to see the numbers. We goofed it up twice and found out many of the staff don't speak English. Finally ended up carrying passport and money on tours which was very uncomfortable. Other than the safe we loved the hotal. Mushroom risotto was incredibly good.

    The Hotel's position in Central Sofia is wonderful. We enjoyed an excellent evening meal with good wine in the restaurant. The staff were very friendly, attentive and helpful. We ordered breakfast to our room. Both breakfasts (an American and a Continental) were splendid; could not fault them. The very best of fresh orange juice, good coffee and croissants. Thank you

    Nothing to report.

    Beds were very comfortable. Location is central

    The rooms were in the process of renovation. The floors were dirty. The breakfast was too expensive. The hotel is overpriced

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.
