    Very good

    excellent location, but when you have a room in the front, it is rather noisy during the night

    I have never experienced more arrogant and unhelpul staff at the reception as in the Sofia Radisson hotel

    Very good

    The location, the hotel is central to Sofia and most attractions are just minutes are away on foot. The in-house restaurant was very nice and the menu varied. Oh not forgetting the London casino, just next door to the hotel.

    The hotel room seemed a little dated.

    The tap water was dirty ( brown full with mad ) although there were was a sujestion that it was ok to drink. In my opinion they have to put filters so they reduce that

    The location of the hotel is excellent situated in Narodno Sabranie Square across from the parliament and the magnificient St. Alexander Nevski Cathedral. The staff were business like and not overfriendly, unlike the hugely friendly and helpful staff of the nearby Shearaton where our taxi driver brought us first by mistake.The staff also arranged, in advance, our taxi to the airport at 4.30am and they were very efficient in their communications by email in this matter.The price of the taxi was a bit high but saved the hassle and uncertainty of arranging it ourselves at 4.00am- We were upgraded, at no extra cost to a business suite and it was magnificient. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and we intend to stay there again.

    We were disappointed with the restaurant. We were not informed that there was a second restaurant, The Glass Bar which is listed to remain open until 11.00pm. We had to contend with Flannagans Bar and this was disappointing. The menu we got certainly did not match that on the website and we finished up having fish and chips and Chicken respectively. Not in keeping with the rest of the hotel. This was our only disappointment, but it was a significant disappointment as our stay was very short.

    Everything was excellent. The location is superb, the staff is friendly, the rooms are spacious.

    The taxi matter in Sofia is bad, as they are cheating a lot the tourists. Before getting in, you should check if the taxometer is working. I was terrified, that when we asked the concierge to call a taxi, we thought we would get a taxi for a good price, but apparently he cheated on us too and to say that we left the concierge tips !!!!

    Fabulous

    Mostly friendly staff, clean rooms. Quiet.

    On my one evening to dine there I was told I would have to eat in the bar as a party occupied the restaurant. I needed to read over dinner and it was too dark in the bar so I had to go out and find another restaurant. But if it was booked it was not anyone's fault.

    Superb

    We were thrilled to receive a complimentary bottle of wine in our room as it was our wedding anniversary. After the first night was cold due to the city winter heating system not being switched on we received a no-fuss, free upgrade to room 301 on the 3rd floor, This is an apartment with a wonderfully big bathroom, two TVs, a separate bedroom and the best possible view of the Alexander Nevski Cathedral. We were sad to leave. The staff were professional, friendly and attentive, especially when we needed to change rooms and when we got locked out of our room after taking the card key into the sauna.

    The shower in room 313 ran cold water for one second every ten, the room was cold at night and it was hard to get the TV to work consistently. But, as I wrote above, we were moved to a better room without fuss. The hotel is expected to complete its mezzanine level renovations by the end of November.

    Everything was on the highest level as usually in Radisson Blu network. Nearby there is a huge park for runners. I even got a special map with runners paths from the hotel stuff.

    We were a party of three, one disabled. The reception from the moment of our arrival was warm and friendly and the care offered to my disabled son was outstanding. The awareness of disabled needs and tactful assistance offered was excellent and the special rooms were of a very high standard. I major on this aspect because it was simply outstanding in a country that has very poor provision for wheelchair users.

    It is difficult to criticise such good all round service.
