Nothing at all
1 - staff behavior 2-parking policy : they made me pay 15£ each time I move my car out of the hotel even if it’s less than 24 hours 3- pictures vs reality is a joke , rooms are like a box 4- beds were uncomfortable
Good location, restaurants, bar and club inside the Hotel
Except of the Frontdoor Concierges the Stuff was not unfriendly but also not friendly. I didn’t feel welcome. My room (maybe I just chose the wrong category) did not have minibar, no proper housekeeping, carpet was not clean and bugs were running over the carpet.
The garden pool was excellent with birds , swans etc. Excellent view of the city especially if you stay at high floor rooms . Quite neighborhood close to the city center , the metro station was close but you don't need it , taxi's are very chip .
First time for 5 star hotel , where at the breakfast the staff gave plastic cups for the orange juice. Small inside pool somewhere near the hotel and without spa. They give you a free treatment for 15 min. but for next year when the spa will finish!!!!
Unfortunately it was dirty, cause of that little worms in the bathroom sink and hair, sheets also full of holes and not really clean.
One stays at this hotel for the ambiance and unique architecture - it's known locally as the 'japonska' hotel. The second reason ie the wide selection of in-house restaurants. There is also a very good local restaurant nearby which offers cordon bleu level and quality of food and cooking. The hotel's included breakfast is good quality and good value. The local metro has a stop nearby(200m) and its 3-4stops to the city centre.
With a stay at Hotel Marinela Sofia, you'll be centrally located in Sofia, within a 5-minute drive of Vasil Levski Stadium and Ivan Vazov National Theatre. Featured amenities include a business center, limo/town car service, and express check-in. Planning an event in Sofia? This hotel has facilities measuring 29020 square feet (2696 square meters), including a conference center.
