Nice hotel great staff and very helpful.

When I travel I usually try and stay at a Hilton family hotel, the Hilton Sofia is a very nice hotel. Be ware if you need laundry service it is very expensive. We found for long stays there are apartments that can be rented weekly or monthly which turned out to be more economical.

I'm a Hilton Honours member, but I stayed at the Radisson when I arrived in Sofia, after traveling in the countryside I returned & decided to stay at the Hilton because the Radisson was full.
What a great move, cheaper than the Radisson, the hotel and the rooms were perfect. The location wasn't as bad as some make out in tripadvisor, a healthy 10 minute walk to the center of town, very safe and a major shopping center just 5 minutes away.
The restuarant food was top quality too, the staff were real friendly. The only downside is when I asked about public buses to Rila monastery, the concierge tried to sell me a tour at 70 euro compared to about $10Aud. Depends on how much of a rush you are.
Room wasn't as large as Radisson but as a single traveler this didn't bother me. Pretty normal size for European hotels.

Unique Quality: Close to town centre and shopping centre. I watched a number of movies for $8Aud at the cinemas!.

Hilton by Night

I remember when they were building the Hilton Hotel I thought - yuck ,what an ugly thing in the center of Sofia. Now that they put all that glass it looks better , and the main hall is amazing - you can contemplate the stars through the glass roof.
I din't stay there personnaly but somebody I've been working with did, so I have my impression of the place. The rooms have internet access that I consider being very useful to plug in your notebook. Besides all the usual extras for a 5 star hotel.On the first floor there is a nice small breakfast room where you can pick up whatever you like. The restaurant is charming aswell ,with live piano music.

The rate was reasonable for the weekend (about 130 Euros per night). They picked me up at the airport as it was included in the price....and my flight was delayed until 2:30 in the morning and they still showed up!!!

The room was very nice...large bathroom and clean overall. I didn't eat in the restaurant so can't give any input. There was a health club there but since I was only in Sofia for two days didn't use it...plus I walked a lot.

The service at the hotel was very good overall....the only note I would make about the hotel is that local folks seem to have some dislike for the hotel. I had a friend that wouldn't join me for a cup of coffee at the hotel as she "knew" them....maybe its because of the level of security at the hotel, one must get a ticket just to pull into the parking lot/pick up/drop off...and there are security people outside seemingly 24/7.

Unique Quality: Its a decent location as there is a pedestrian bridge from the right of the hotel across to the culture center and that leads you intot he downtown area...if walking is a problem don't worry because taxis are dirt cheap.

Directions: Its just outside the downtown area of Sofia, to the south....about a 15 minute ride from the airport. And about a 20 minute walk from the downtown Sofia area.

One of the best hotels in Sofia

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 24, 2004

It is a relatively new hotel, built something like 5 years ago. In my opinion, one of the best in town. If I have to choose between Sheraton, Radisson and Hilton in Sofia, I would definitely choose Hilton.

I should say that since I live in Sofia I stayed there only once. It was on the executive floor. The room is a typical Hilton room. It is about 30 sq.m. and you have little things to spoil you, like bathrobe and slippers, shower cabin, work desk with lamp, etc.

The Seasons restaurant in the hotel offers very good food :)

There is a fitness centre and a pool. Bear in mind that the pool is 6x6m and you can not swim in it. You can use the on site recreation facilities if you are there for a day or two, but if stay longer, I would recommend that you find another place to go, you will have the same or better facilities on a better price.

As a whole the hotel staff is very helpful.

Some info from their site + my comments :)
