If this is you or you just need something simple with polite and honest owners. This is the place. it is located in a family neighborhood and offer a basic room. Plenty of... More

Found Avel on booking.com. I booked it due to proximity to the airport and very pleased that I did!! Yordan is an superb host, very friendly and welcoming. Willing to collect clients from the airport at same cost as a taxi. Beware of taxi drivers at Sofia Airport unless you book through one of the main firms. Even better is... More

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

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 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
