Hotel Lion Sofia, Sofia
Still a great value. I'll return
They've changed breakfast to buffet. It's modest as buffet's go but a big improvement over the previous system. Still appreciate the great location near the bus station and metro.

Very convenient hotel.
Huge and spacious rooms, exactly as advertised. Nice breakfast, made to order, from a choice of 6 dishes. The breakfast was served promptly by very courteous staff. The hotel is located in the city centre and within a walkable distance to many interesting sights.

Hotel Lion Sofia, Sofia
It's ok but for a short period of time
The wi fi connection was pretty slow and was going on and off in the evenings very often. The room smelled so heavy I had to keep the door and the window open for a whole day and spray it with air freshener. The staff was cold and not friendly.
