The location could not be more central; you're across the street from the back of the parliament building. I had emailed them to assure that we had two single beds instead of one double bed and was told to book a particular kind of room via Expedia to get two beds. When I arrived they seemed to have no knowledge of that but quickly accommodated by giving us a two-bed room. Staff very helpful and friendly, hotel attractive. Rooms simple in terms of furnishings (e.g., only simple wooden chairs, a ledge that works somewhat as a desk, a TV, and the beds) but very clean. Free wifi. Sofia was great for the day we were there but might not wear well (as service is not always great and, while a number of Bulgarians were quite friendly and helpful, it just doesn't feel overall like a very welcoming place). But we were sorry to leave this hotel.
This hotel has everything. It's clean, quiet, spacious, everything works, the staff are particularly helpful and the breakfasts are varied and plentiful. All rooms have either a balcony or a bay window. Even the location is good, being just a 5 minute walk from the bus and railway stations and a 10 minute walk into the centre of the city.
The hotel Niky has an excellent location in Sofia and is a superb value. The staff is friendly and helpful; the rooms are sufficiently large, clean and relatively new. The attached restaurant has a very pleasant garden area and serves very good food and drink. The breakfast is included and offers an extensive selection, All in all it is hard to beat in Sofia for quality and price.

This was my second business trip to Sofia. The first time I stayed in an American owned chain location, which was just fine, but this place was half the price (I'm self-employed, so it's my money :) The location is about 100 yards from Opalchenska metro station, which worked well for me. Generally the place is clean and well presented. They did have some odd oversights in the plumbing: the shower heads were wobbly, and the shower doors leaked, however, the bathroom is tiled and has a drain in it so not a problem. The water was hot, and the pressure good. I had an issue when I arrived in that there seemed to have been an overdose of air freshener (or something like it) that made my room very "overscented." That started to make my nose and throat sore, but the moment I asked if something could be done, they immediately moved me to another room (actually a nicer one; larger, and with a balcony) I often feel that you can tell more about a business by how they handle a problem than by their day to day operations, and I was very impressed with this.
