Smoky in Places!

They allow people to smoke in some bar and restaurant areas where they shouldn't, which is not nice and against the law.

Really nice stay, unfortunatelly only for 2 nights

Everything in the hotel is really nice, the best of is Sushi restaurant, where I had the best sushi ever ( never been in Japan :-) ). Only 1 negative comment - don´t use hotel taxi for transportation, it is very expensive compare to the other companies - we traveled by OK taxi from the airport to the hotel for 14 leva and when we asked for the taxi from Kempinski back to the airport, we paid 35 leva !!!!! I really can´t understand, why this hotel support these companies...

hyvä valinta

Hyvin varusteltu hotelli lähellä metroasemaa. Kulttuurikeskus kahden metroaseman päässä. Hotellissa hyvät ravintolat, toimiva kuntokeskus ja ystävällinen henkilökunta. Sisäpihalla kaunis japanilainen puutarha.
