Accor has announced the first Novotel 4-star hotel has opened in Sofia, Bulgaria. Installed in a 15-story glass building, the hotel features 178 rooms. Each room also offers the latest in technology, free wireless broadband access, programmable air-conditioning, and a flat-screen LCD television set with access to satellite channels, plus a mini bar.
The first floor of the Novotel Sofia is dedicated to the Meeting@Novotel offer, with meeting areas covering a total of 400 square meters. The six rooms set aside for events can cater for 280 people—or 160 guests for a sit-down event. The facilities also include the new modular Eureka meeting room that can be personalized and is designed to facilitate team working and brainstorming sessions.
“The location of the new Novotel Sofia is a valuable advantage and the hotel will very quickly become the venue of choice for foreign business travelers,” notes General Manager Vincent Dujardin. This customer category is the prime target of the Novotel Sofia, which also hopes to attract travelers drawn by the capital’s charms.
The hotel has its own fitness space in the heart of the building, the In Balance center, where guests can unwind in the steam baths and relaxation room. They can also enjoy the cuisine served in the “Nouveau Sens” restaurant or relax over a drink and a snack in the “Le Samokov” bar.
With the opening of the Novotel Sofia, Accor is pursuing its push into Eastern Europe. This first hotel responds to the growth of tourism in the city and its strong potential.
