New Hotel to Open in Sofia, Bulgaria

In yet another sign of Central Europe's blossoming hotel scene, the Rezidor Hotel Group has announced their first Park Inn in Bulgaria. The Park Inn Sofia is scheduled to open later in 2010 as a re-branding of the existing Greenville Hotel and Apartments, Sofia.

Originally, the Greenville hotel opened in 2005. Besides 113 rooms, suites, studios and apartments, it comprises a restaurant with an outdoor terrace, two bars and two meeting rooms. A wellness and sports center has an indoor swimming pool, fitness area and treatment rooms. The hotel is located just a few miles south of Sofia city center and is close to the International Airport.

Sofia is one of the oldest cities in Europe and has a unique, varied architectural style mixing east and west, with Orthodox churches, Ottoman mosques and even Red Army monuments punctuating the skyline.

With Radisson Blu properties already established in most Eastern European capitals, Rezidor’s focus has expanded to the development of Park Inn hotels in strategically important markets. More Park Inn hotels are in operation or under development in Krakow, Bratislava, Prague, Ostrava, Sárvár and Wroclaw.
