    Breakfast was not included in the price and to have it seperately costed too much.

    No plugs near the bed to plug in cell phone.

    I liked the location,decor,linen

    Poor choice of channels on tv, should have free movie channels. No tea making in the room. Ridiculous mini bar prices.

    Very good

    It is an old fashion luxury hotel (vast spaces, sumptuos halls, lots of cristals and glasses) located in the heart of the town, near to the governement buildings. Staff seem to be numerous and professional and do their best to offer high level services (at west european prices, let's say it). I enjoyed the inviting breakfast containing some lovely oriental and balkanic dishes but not the drafty room where it takes place.

    The general impression is that it could be better looked after.My double room was very big indeed but smelled of dust and rancid cleaning products. Curtains seemed dusty and smelly. There were only two teabags, no sugar or condensed milk near the electric kettle, no shower cap in the bathroom and no shoe-sponge. There was no list of prices for the drinks in the minibar, which induced caution. The telephone was out of order and could not be repaired in the evening and was removed, so I kept asking myself what could I do in case of some emergency during night... Definitely a true 5* requiers higher standards.

    nothing ?! there was no Air condition in the rooms although it was a very hot weather ?! This hotel needs complete rehabilitation ?! More than this there is no management ?! It is the same style as I was having in the same hotel more than 4o0 years ?! Wonder why Sheraton & SPG Group are giving their name to this bad hotel ?!

    Amazing atmosphere and luxury. Great general cleanness. Friendly and qualified staff.

    Lack of toothpaste in the Classic Suite. TV and all extras in the room required an extra pay.

    Beautiful hotel, ancien building with marbel everywhere. Nice babycot, everything you need in the room. Excellent location, cetre of the city with the best shops nearby.

    Room are a bit small, with tiny bathrooms, even in an executive room. The bar and roomservice a little too expensive for Bulgaria.

    The location.

    The hotel is deffinitely not up to the standard of a 5 stars hotel, not tot mention the chain. Compared to 20 years ago, now Sheraton is a pathetic mixture of remains of previous luxury, old run down furniture, scandalously bad bathroom facilities and cosmetics, combined with ridiculously high prices. Rooms are too tiny, windows do not open, mnibar and room service prices are 3-4 times higher then in most of the centrally located 5 star hotels in Sofia. Wellness center very old and badly maintained. TV channels selection is very scarce, clients are asked to pay additional 30 EUR for more channels and Internet. The entire hotel offers free Internet only in the shrank lobby bar (once large and pleasant and now taken entirely by boutiques). Deffinitelly not worth the money.
