Thank you, but I won't be back
Let's start with the positive aspects of our experience at this hotel. Room is clean and has a lovely view. That's about it.
As for the negative:
1) I simply cannot find a logical explanation for the clumsy bathroom doorway design. It is really hazardous; you could easily break an arm or a leg while stumbling across it.
2) Apparently this hotel is a preferred choice for banquets, weddings or other parties. I have no issue with that. But in this case the hall for such celebrations should be completely soundproofed, or the music should stop after 12:00 AM. We really did not appreciate being unwilling listeners to loud music till 3:00 AM and not getting a decent night's sleep.
3) Matresses are not comfortable
4) Many staff members need to be trained how to deal with unhappy customers. (I must say though, some did show some sympathy and advised us to move to another hotel when we learnd that there was an upcoming celebration the following nights. Indeed, we packed our bags and checked out).
This briefly summarizes our experience. Will we be back? Sorry, but no.

A very good and cheap 4 stars ....
I found Dragalevtsi as a cheap 4 stars hotel (55 Euros per day for 2 persons with breakfast). It is situated in the Dragalevtsi suburban of Sofia, under the Vitosha mountain, in a quiet neighbourhood, with houses with gardens around. It 's a new small hotel, with a guarded open air parking lot. The neighbourhood has easy access to Sofia 's South Ring road and is 7 km away from Sofia 's center. The room was big, with a big double bed, with a balcony and view to Vitosha mountain. Everything is very clean. There was a small refridgerator which didn 't work. The bathroom is very nicely decorated with a bath cabin. The problem is that entering the bathroom you have to raise your leg to get into, otherwise you will hit it and have the danger to fall... They must put a sign for this. I can not understand why they constructed it so. Also the bathroom has the need of more hangers for things and the towels (there is anly one hanger for all towels) and they don 't give you towel for the feet. There weren 't also bath robes, as it was described. The breakfast has a lot of things to eat in a buffet, but there isn 't any cocoa powder. Also I should prefer a better variety and quality of breads than the one they serve. The reception was friendly and eager to serve you, and they speak good English; in the restaurant I asked them to turn the air-conditioning off, as there was no need for it to work and it was freezing the atmosphere and they were looking at me like a UFO and they didn 't set it off... There is a nice and well equipped gym, 2 saunas and a hamam, they deserve a use and it is at no cost. The hotel is quiet, but we had a problem on Saturday night, as they had a wedding gala in the restaurant and there was loud music playing till late at night at 2 o' clock and that was annoying, although the restaurant is in the basement and I lived at 3rd floor... All in all for the money you give it is a very good hotel, for me the area it 's OK and you get easily to the center of Sofia and if there weren 't the things I 've mentioned, I should definitely put 5 stars.

Lovely hotel but remote
We stayed here last June and were blessed with gorgeous weather during our stay. The hotel is in a remote area so you will need to get a taxi in and out to the city but the staff at the reception desk, who are very friendly and helpful, will organise one. Lovely pool, which we relaxed by but the service in the restaurant isn't great, they had very little English if at all and prices for drinks varied from person to person. The food is nice though and very cheap, we mainly had sandwiches and salads. They told us they don't serve cocktails which is a pity. There wasn't any atmosphere in the hotel in the evening, no music and very few guests having drinks so we mainly headed into town in the evening for food and drinks. Very affordable poolside break in Sofia but quite remote and little atmosphere.

Quick Weekend Away
Coming from Dublin on a quick budget weekend away, Sofia was exactly what we were looking for. A short cheap flight, sunny weather, beautiful ancient architecture to explore and a nice hotel to stay at.
The hotel is nicely presented, provides spacious rooms with comfy beds and a nice outdoor pool area.The hotel has a full bar and restaurant, also serves a continental breakfast each morning including yummy pancakes, sweet breads, fruit, eggs, cheese, meats and juices etc. Excellent value for money here.
They also have a small gym and sauna area & you can request a masseuse, who I highly recommend, he was excellent and at a very reasonable rate.
It is a little outside the city, but still conveniently located. It is a short taxi ride back to town or you can stroll around the surrounding residential streets to explore the local town at a leisurely pace or tackle some more inclined off-the-beaten-track routes for a more strenuous hike. Get a map from the front desk to figure out where you are and whats good to see.
Sofia is well worth exploring so take a day or two to walk around the city and see all the amazing old churches and architecture. It is also phenomenal for WiFi, its everywhere and free of charge. The city is also still adjusting to new EU funding so you see a lot of development with a mix of new money and poorer areas side by side.
The only downside to this break was the ownership of the bar, which seems to be separate to the hotel. Unfortunately we encountered blatant dishonesty where they tried to rip us off.
Ensure you specify exactly what you are looking for, we ordered but were then served top shelf brands and charged more than what we would be at home.
Ask 'what they want to serve you' costs and if there are cheaper alternatives.
We jumped from a €12 Gin and Tonic to €3.50 G&T's.
Also beware, unfortunately what you order off the female waitress may also not be served; as the man at the bar solely handles the cash and can disregard her conveyance of your order and insist she pour the more expensive brands to rip you off.
Once we new what we were dealing with, we were fine; but beware of others trying to take advantage of you!
In association to this, taxi drivers can charge what they want - ensure you know which company to use/order from and check the rates before getting in or confirm a set fee.
