Best Western Hotel Expo Sofia Reviews
High Quality hotel Apr 13, 2009
The Expo Hotel says its located 4 mins away from Sofia's airport and it is, however it is slightly longer into the town. The hotel itself is i personally felt a bit in the middle of know where, however there are a few cafe's along the same road, and a bus stop that would take you into the town.
The rooms are lovely - i felt it was pretty grand and for a 4* rated hotel you would expect this!
Our room was lovely, the bed was massive and it was all very clean and well decorated.
When it came to the evening we had little choice but to eat in the hotel's restaurant as there was no where else around to go. This is the only let down i felt as there wasn't huge choice on the menu and for what the food was i considered this expensive.
However again it was a lovely restaurant very elegant and clean, the only downside was that the staff couldn't speak any English and weren't that speedy.
We were looking forward to going to a few bars in the evening but we only had the choice of the hotel bar to go to, this is again very nice, however we found that it was actually cheaper to stay in your room and drink out of the mini bar - something which doesn't happen often!
Attached to the hotel is a casino - we didn't go in and we had no intention of playing, however they do have live performances apparently every night :)
I did enjoy my stay at the hotel and if you are only going for one night i recommend it, however if you are going to see the city for longer i suggest you find a hotel in the city to stay as commuting every day i would have thought would be a pain!

Decent Hotel Close to Airport Apr 06, 2009
The hotel itself was great - 4* speaks for itself. The room (standard double) was large, with huge bed, cable tv, minibar and en suite bathroom.
Hotel staff were friendly enough but don't expect them to speak much English - most bulgarians you tend to find can't (or maybe won't?) speak English.
Breakfast was included and was average - a choice of cold meats, fish, cereals, English breakfast, etc but there was a limited amount and the English breakfast was warm at best
Evening meal was expensive and again average at best but there was enough to choose something at least. Staff member (yep, one member of staff - the restaurant was empty mind) was friendly but spoke almost no English.
Location - perfect distance from the airport but a bus (no. 114)/taxi ride away from the centre of Sofia. Not really ideal but not too bad. Nothing really around the hotel area to do/see or anywhere to eat as such.
Casino in hotel
Minibar was reasonable (cheaper than the downstairs bar in fact)
Bar downstairs was also reasonable
