Sveta Sofia is the average category of hotels. They show you four stars, but believe me, there are not. Thing which are good: * location - hotel is very close to most attractions in Sofia and first of all is near main street with shops and restaurant * breakfast - until 10 am and quite good (vegetables, fruits, pancakes, cheeses,...

The Sveta Sofia was pleasant and 'rustic' - plain and simple. Very basic included breakfast. Great location, which was the most important thing. Note it is on a pedestrianised street so you may need to drag your suitcase over cobbles for a block or so (depending how friendly and helpful your driver is!)

This place is old and basic (old decor and TV), but the room was clean and the bed comfy. The location is also excellent as it is a short walk from city center. The breakfast was not at all good. The meats and cheeses seemed cheap, and the coffee was lukewarm. In short, if it's luxury you're looking for, this... More

We were here five nights, we suffered. The lobby is used as a warehouse, dirty rooms and certainly are not here spa or swimming pool. Online they present themselves four star but the feeling is perhaps one star. In the morning, we ate the leftovers of yesterday and beyond that, the food served cold and we turned the team, they...

A nice, quiet and clean hotel nearby the city center. The staff was polite and helpful. A lot of shops nearby. A very good-safe area to stay in Sofia. You can easily go to the sightseeing of the city by foot in 10 mins max. If I go to Sofia again, I will definitely stay there.

It's not an expensive hotel, true, but it's still pretty basic. Hilariously advertised as a 4-star hotel, I'd say 2-and-a-half stars at best. The rooms are functional but in need of a refresh. The bathroom worked but was very dated and was on the brink of needing replacing. The usual rubbish TV reception and 90s big-box TVs, but these are... More

Spent a night here whilst passing through Sofia on a trip around Central Bulgaria. It was reasonably priced on booking.com at £30 for the night, including breakfast which was a full European style buffet breakfast. The location of the hotel is really useful too, only a couple of minutes walk to Vitosha, the restaurant and bar street of Sofia. The... More
