                      Excellent location and very good service as employees are fully dedicated to customers.

                      The only very bad point is the breakfast : medium quality and very poor choice, not cheap (21€).

                      Localization is quite good.

                      Poor quality of breakfast, not so many choices. Cold scramblled eggs, undrinkable coffee. Bad quality of fruits, cheese and fishes.

                      Fantastic location

                      The lounge bar at -1 level is just a terrible tourist trap! Absolutely avoid it!

                      very standard hotel foe a 5*

                      Old lifts, I had problems with my card to enter to the room the 90% of the time. The hotel is very old, the gym is very very old and not comfortable.

                      The wide corridors and soundproof rooms.

                      Location was good.

                      There were many governmental activities so you had to walk about 100 meters to get taxi or when taxi droped you off. The rooms were poorly accesorized. No toothbrush, not many accessories for sheraton. Wireless was scarce and did not always work

                      Design is really impressive!

                      Prices of minibar are astronomical. I paid 25euros for two small bottles of mineral water. I've never seen anything like this!!!

                      The fantastic staff

                      It should be a 3 Star .The hotel IS NOT and should NOT BE five star.Facilities,quality and old shabby room interiors-with hand stitched broken sheets,mould in bathroom corners,and visible repairs.

                      The staff were very polite and helpful. The hotel is very central

                      The hotel needs upgradation, its old and has smell of moisture in places

                      Quite nice hotel. Good location - the main interest places of Sofia are within walking distance.

                      The room is a bit small.

                      There was no breakfast buffet at 6h30 local time? Bread giong with the breakfast as roomservice was very bad!

                      Breakfast is not good, no choice enough and the room to have breakfast is to close to the hall and recemtion and very noisy.

                      Great central location. Can walk to all the visitor sited from hotel. Very clean and updated rooms. Had access to concierge room and snacks were delicious.

                      Staff at front desk not very knowledgeable. Paid for overnight parking the night before checkout. They told me it was all taken care of and all I had to do as show the parking attendant the white plastic card. The parking attendant however said I needed a printout of the receipt which my fiance took with him as he paid. I asked them to call the front desk person who just checked me out 5 minutes earlier and had access to the files. They said when they called, the front desk denied knowing anything about it. They made me pay 30 levs AGAIN to exit the lot (about $18) Rip-off. Very unfriendly and uncooperative.
