    The word "grand" used in the name of the hotel is valid for a lot of things like the size of rooms, food plates, etc. except price that is great!

  • Couple

    The location is perfect, in the city Center. Everywhere is in walking distance. The room was biggest, also the bathroom was so big. You can feel like u are at home. İ recommend you to choose standard room because it has the almost the same facilities. When u came to the hotel u can upgrade your room just by giving 20 € not for better room because all of them Good. But u Will have free one way airport shuttle, free business lounge for 2 hours, free small red wine.

    Very good rooms

    Saturday they had a function which we could hear on the 4th floor and lasted untill eary hours in the morning. Also all drinks and food was very exspesive even for a top hotel.

  • Family with children

    Hotel rooms are very spacious and nicely furnished in wood. Marble bathrooms and all the necessary amenities for a five-star hotel.

    The windows do not open due to the buildings design. Personally for our family that is a huge drawback. I cannot sleep with a closed window during winter and I imagine it is even worse during summer as with children we cannot use the air conditioner at night, Bulgarian summers are hot and winters are warm. This little detail was of a huge discomfort for us.

  • Group of friends

    Friendliness and helpfulness of the Staff. Travelling with older people and a wheel chair they were very helpful.

    There was noise in the morning sounding like a pump therefore sleep was disturbed.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    Large rooms and central city location. Good breakfast buffet.

    Restaurant staff service was below expectation for such renown hotel, ordered option with prebooked dinner - do not recommend this as I was not able to choose from the menu, only limited choice from small menu, very poor quality food, unfresh, long waiting for service. Ground floor restaurant I do not recommend.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    I appreciated the excellent service at the concierge/reception of all people on duty, with the only exception of an employee who apparently did not want to be involved in something which he percieved as a nuisance: i.e. doing for me the electronic checkin at the airport. Other employees by contrast did it quite efficiently and even advised me on my mobile that everything was ok.

    Superservice from Stanimir (front desk) Superservice from Bodizar (??) doorman / student (probably wrong spelling). Always getting superlatives when being back

    Breakfast: Noone knew how to make soft eggs. After second attempt, I got it all over my Tshirt. You have to ask for coffee when sitting down

  • Single

    Superservice from Stanimir (front desk) Superservice from Bodizar (??) doorman / student (probably wrong spelling). Always welcoming back

    No need for trying to find coffee for yourself.Noone seems to understand English in 2011 nor at the opening of the hotel
