Convenient but lacking facilities
I selected Sofia because was relatively close to the Convention Center and reasonably priced. I stayed for five nights. Friendly staff. Stay was fine though I’m sad to report that my room wasn’t serviced on one day. Not a major problem but not what I was expecting. Also my safe wasn’t working. They tried to fix it and offered either an alternative room or a two-night deduction of fees. I chose the latter. There appeared to be a bar, which was closed. No restaurant but there is a breakfast place nearby.

Room was really small.
Room was really small. Building work going off across Rd so room was noisy even though I specially asked for a quiet room. Parking was expensive and other charge’s was expensive.

Clean room, small but adequate. AC fan extremely loud, but was an asset when I could hear the TV next door after midnight.

Ask for an accessible room
The room was nice, but the shower was treacherous. Not only did it take almost 5 minutes to get cold water, the shower floor was extremely slippery.

Enjoyed the tasteful desire of this older hotel. Very nice amenities, thoughtful details. Comfortable, quiet, and while their restaurant is currently closed, there weee several good options within 2 blocks. Also within walkimg distance of most government offices and courts. Staff could not have been more helpful.
