Hopefully the time is right for two new premium hotels that have recently opened in Sofia; the Hyatt Regency and the Grand Hotel Millennium. Both hotels were originally slated to open some time ago but their opening was delayed due to the “you know what”.
The Grand Hotel Millennium is part of the same organisation that owns the 5-star Grand Hotel Sofia and the Suite Hotel and is located in the Millennium Towers adjacent to the National Palace of Culture (NDK). The 400 roomed 30 storey high hotel is massively impressive in its offering and is not dis-similar to a “Dubai” Hotel in its presence and facilities. The hotel is indeed a destination within itself and is also targeting the Meetings and Events industry with its impressive offering of meeting and event space as well as its accompanying facilities from its 10 restaurants to its impressive spa facility. The hotel also has a large rooftop bar area that is likely to soon become the place to be seen.
The Hyatt Regency has a superb location on Levski Pametnik where once stood the old Serdika Hotel. Levski Pametnik is the site where Bulgarian national hero Vassil Levski was hung by the Turks in 1879. The hotel is of course a part of the global Hyatt chain which has a hotel presence in 60 countries with the brand being synonymous with providing premium quality hotel accommodation. The hotel has 183 rooms including 22 suites rooms as well as state of the art meeting and event facilities and a spa. The fashion for rooftop bars continues with the hotel having its own “The Scene” with spectacular views over the city and Vitosha Mountain.
