Hotel Lion Sofia, Sofia
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.

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.

Great hotel in a good location, balcony on the room was an unexpected extra, very clean. Restaurant attached is convenient, as is the breakfast. One of the waitresses seemed quite inexperienced and stressed at breakfast on our 2nd day but this did not detract from our overall stay. A few people seemed to be hanging around outside the hotel entrance but expect this in any city
