Fantastic guest house, would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Sofia. Close to the center and the airport, and with a 24 hour shop on the same road, it has everything you need close by. The rooms are well equipped, clean and comfortable, and the owner is great. He can arrange to pick you up or drop you off... More

I was there for a week and Yordan the owner was friendly, a great nothing is to much attitude and was... More

This was a low cost guesthouse which we booked due to its close proximity to the airport in Sofia. The place was exactly as described so didn't disappoint - the owner (Yordan) was exceoptionally friendly and helpful, booking a taxi for us, ordering us a pizza to eat in the hotel (early start the next morning) and generally checking we...

Avel Guesthouse is a simple and well-run place to stay and the closest to the airport. Everything functions as it should, and the owner/manager is extremely helpful. The place is small, so anonymity is not an option, but the service is warm without being overbearing.

It is very nice guest house. The room is very comfortable, clean with all the facilities you need. Free wi-fi and lovely garden. The owner is very kind and helpful. It is very near to the airport and about 15 minutes to the city center. The owner ordered me a taxi to the airport for a cheap price even without... More

I have stayed at a fair amount of hotels and guest houses in Bulgaria over the past few months. I have found on the whole that accomodation in Bulgaria is set to a high standard of cleanliness and well thought out furnishings for very reasonable rates! The guest houses seem to be a much better choice as they not only... More

Considering the price, it's a very good value for money. It's situated a bit "nowhere"m yet at 10 minutes with trolleybus 1, from the centre. The rooms were simple but clean, but the important fact is the couple running the hotel/hostel are trying their best to help out, ie, by me they changed my money, got me an extra fan,... More

We've only been here for one night and our primary focus was to stay the night close to the airport. We couldn't have picked a better place. Not just because it was, as expected, a 10 minute drive to the airport. First off, the room we had was spacious, clean and modern. We've gotten used to the Bugarian-style shower, but... More
