Dear Guest, if you are not Anonymous, I could check your complaining and could give you more personalized answer. I’d like to inform you after each check out we canceled pre-authorization deposit immediately and there is delays of bank procedures which is normally taken from 3 to 30 days depending of banks. If you email me with more details as your name I promise I will personally investigate your case.

Central Hotel, Sofia

Pros: Friendliness , Modern Facilities , Cleanliness & good value for money
Cons: ensuring that the tea / coffee facilities were well stocked . We had to take up tea bags & creamers from breakfast to stock our supplies
Location: see above
Lovely quiet room as requested, as hotel was sited on a busy main road. Staff very friendly, room spacious & very clean. Glad we booked the hotel shuttle as it was lovely having our driver there to collect us from the airport. We loved the Free Sofia Tour , excellent guides with local knowledge. Food & wines in the various restaurants we used were excellent & very reasonable .

Dear Anonymous, I would be glad to thank you for your comments, if I know who you are. I prefer to gratitude guests personally, with their names, so I would recommend you next time you decide to rate us, please, do not be “Anonymous”, so I and other traveler would accept your assessment more objectively. However, you did not use our services anonymously ;-) With respect, Zhivko Zhelyazkov General Manager at Central Hotel Sofia

Good location, fantastic breakfast buffet

The hotel was great. Clean and neat, staff were very nice, the spa was ok and the breakfast buffet was brilliant. About 10 minute walk to the metro station and 20-30 minutes to the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.

Excellent, well situated, friendly hotel

Pros: The hotel did everything we could reasonably expect and much more to make our stay comfortable and memorable. Excellent value.
Cons: Very little.
Location: Very well situated to access central Sofia and local transport. Hotel has details of various excursions which can be booked by the hotel directly.
We chose this hotel carefully because of the predominantly favourable reviews and what sounded like an perfect situation to explore central Sofia from. We weren't disappointed. The hotel was very good value, perfectly situated for access to the sights of Sofia and within a relatively short distance of the Metro. Staff were friendly, helpful and attentive at all times, our room was comfortable and well appointed and our meals (daily breakfast and dinner on three evenings) were excellent. On leaving at the end of our stay, the hotel found that our organised transport was going to be approximately 20 minutes late (not the fault of the hotel at all - this related to an unexpected traffic situation nearby) and without us asking, the hotel offered to order us an immediate taxi at their own expense, provided us with regular updates on the transport we were expecting and arranged complimentary hot tea while we waited.
