Pros: Situated in a beautiful location on the edge of a village. Our host was excellent and the food was good. This is an excellent place to stay for travellers using Sofia airport which is only about 20 miles away and avoids going into Sofia which if you are driving can be a horrific experience.
Cons: Everything was good.
Pros: Truly, dedicated hosts that make you feel comfortably at home immediately. Very friendly, speaking fluently english with a good knowledge of the larger area of Sofia. Large, very quite, bedrooms, with ample heating for cooler April mornings. Good cooks - Large breakfast is served in the warm and cosy guestroom downstairs with plenty of room for al the guests, even when fully booked. I am sure they are also able to prepare a very nice breakast for vegetarians, if they are informed in advance. Located about half an hours drive from the airport and off the beaten track to offer you on top the absolutely beautiful songs of the nightingales and other birds in the morning just outside of the nice building. Playground outside for small kids is also available. Will certainly stay here again for my next trip to Sofia.
Pros: very nice and friendly host

Pros: Incredibly helpful and friendly host, and the breakfast was superb!!! 11/10 would sray again.
Cons: It's was a little hard to find for me, so i recommend testing the navigation system beforehand.
Pros: I still cannot get over how amazing me and my friends were treated, easily one of the best places we have ever stayed in in Bulgaria. Todor went out of his way on every single step and made us feel so at home that leaving was an emotional experience. The food cooked, the location, the atmosphere were all a 100000/10. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Cons: The only problem I had was the trip ending and having to leave!
Pros: Hospitality, food, accomidation
Pros: Very friendly host, did his best to make us as comfortable as he could. We arrived very late (10pm) but still we had something to eat at that time.

Cons: Perfect for the price.
Pros: Great location, welcoming and professional staff. The level of cleanliness in the rooms is excellent
Cons: Breakfast can be more varied perhaps a more Continental menu
Pros: The lake
Cons: The bunch of unattended kids, but I guess that has nothing to do with the property :)
Pros: Almost nothing.
Cons: Staff in the restaurant need to be trained how to serve ( especially the old man). We have been rushed to place an order ASAP (don't know why). In Bulgarian tradition you first have salad with rakia and after that main course. Not in this restaurant - everything came at the same time and according to the waiter it was our fault as we did not tell him in advance to postpone the main :-( Loud talks in the night just under our window. Can't understand what's the point of having a lake and putting the sign " Bathing is prohibited". Breakfast was just edible, nothing extraordinary. Definitely not good value for money. Very disappointed.

Located in Ihtiman, Motel Ihtiman is within a 15-minute drive of Ihtiman City Gallery and Er Sofia Golf Club. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: Location and the bathroom was clean
Cons: The room was smelly, the carpet was stained and worn out. The Room was dark, old and depressing. There was a light in the ceiling that was flashing all the time, similar to a camera flashlight. You can’t turn it off. We turned all the electricity off from the electricity cabinet, and it didn’t help, the light was still flashing. We asked for another room and it turned out that it is the same in all rooms. It is impossible to sleep with this flashing light. We will never come back
Pros: Perfect location, everything you need for one night☺
Pros: Location. That's all
Cons: Dirty hotel Elevator floor was sticky due to some dried liquid that was spilled there. One light in the room was flashing every few minutes) after it was turned off ! How can you sleep like that ? We had 2 rooms both of which had this flashing light.
Pros: I liked that the motel is located on the highway and it has an playing ground for kids. Nice personnel.
Cons: - the spot light in the room flickered each minute during all our staying there. - the bathroom fun make a big noise each 5 minutes. I tried to stop it during the night, but it was impossible. :-( - breakfast was quite poor for my taste. I would suggest a self service even if the price will be higher. - toilet paper not provided in the room. :-( It was a messy time. :-) The overall impression for me was that every commodity has a price.

Cons: The breakfast was very poor and the service in the restaurant has not been so good
Cons: The Breakfast was unacceptable and also the information about it. Its like in Russia 30 years ago.
