Luxurious Stay

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 22, 2013

We stayed in the Kempinski for our last night in Sofia. My husband had found a very good deal on the internet and we got the room for a fraction of its normal price. I'm guessing this might be because the hotel attracts a lot of business people and maybe summer is not their busiest time.

The reception staff were pleasant and welcoming. The room was lovely and there was a small complementary bottle of wine and some snacks in our room when we checked in.

Safety deposit boxes were available at the reception.

Breakfast at the Kempinski was excellent with a large selection of hot food, lots of cold fish - smoked salmon, herring. There was a salad bar, a selection of cereals, bread. You could even have sparkling wine with your meal.

The hotel also has an elegant Japanese garden.

Down sides of the hotel were it was quite far from the main tourist sights. It was around a 20 minute walk to get to Bulgaria Square.

Also during our visit the swimming pool and spa were shut for renovation. I think the notices said the renovation would continue until December.

The biggest down side was the price of items in the minibar. Water was about 18x the price of water in the shops. I think only the very rich or those on expenses would buy anything from it. There was a supermarket around 5 minutes walk away so no need to use it anyway.

If I could get a good deal here again, I would certainly stay here again.

Also there is a spectacular view from the upper floors. You can see the domes of the Alexander Nevsky Church glinting in the sunshine.

You could get a wire from reception for free internet access.

I arrived early in the morning but the staff was so kind to explain that no room is available yet but will try to get one cleaned right away for me. My first day went very well, the kindness of the staff, my nice view from the 13th floor, the amenities, the spacious room, and I have yet to enjoy the other features of the hotel. I can't wait to spend some time in the Japanese garden!

Unique Quality: In a quiet location, huge area, very professional staff

Directions: coming soon

Nice hotel. Not too expensive if you call first and haggle with the reservations agent a bit; you can get a room for about 35% of the rack rate if they're not full. The restaurants aren't much, but those out in the neighborhood are fine. It's a nice location if you don't mind taking a tram downtown or walking a bit, and the views of Virtosha and the city are fantastic.

It is a good but expensive place. The service is really good.

I am familiar with the conference halls, the bowling and one of the restaurants but I have not seen the rooms.

The picture is from the hotel's site. They say the room is about 28 sq.m. which is big enough for my taste. The other advantage is the good view because the hotel is situated up on a hill.

Unique Quality: - Writing desk and chair
- TV receiving 24 channels
- Pay-TV with 2 channels
- Hotel INFO channel
- Mini bar

Fitness Center includes:
- large in-door pool
- 8-lane bowling alley and
- massage rooms
