On the upside the breakfast was excellent and room comfort and furnishings very tasteful. I broke my stay here as I had some business to attend to elsewhere. So my first night in the "penthouse suite" was very nice (though I think the title somewhat pretentious) My return stay a few days later I was allocated a ground floor room.... More

It was nice, staff was polite. Loved the option to have breakfast in the room. The only negative part was the fireplace. We booked the room hoping to enjoy tea in front of the fire and it turned out (quite confusing) it was not working at all. Everything else was satisfactory. Would recommend it for business stays and city tourism.

We stayed twice at the beginning of our holiday in Bulgaria and at the very end. Three of the four rooms were magnificent and the fourth, on the very top floor, was wonderful but the access was tricky. We've never had such a spacious room as one that had separate bathroom and lounge and in addition a free standing, claw... More

Have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Residence as with all others we found it to be charming and cosy. The staff were always friendly and helpful beyond what would normally be expected. A little side note for the Management we would recommend that as there is no Room Service that you would consider putting tea/coffee making... More

We were in town for a wedding and were looking for a boutique place close to the City center. Couldn't have wished for anything better. This charming townhouse-type hotel was just perfect. Our suite was spacious and perfectly equipped (including a fully-stuffed) bar, the staff was extremely helpful and eager to accommodate. The hotel is located on a charming quite... More

For a year I got to stay at this hotel many times for work. My boss got a room at the Oborishte one trip and told me that I had to request it on my next trip. It turned out to be an excellent find. The people who work there are friendly. The breakfasts were always great for going into... More

My friend and I stayed here last month, and were delighted to have found such a gem. The positives: 1) It's located in a leafy, peaceful district favoured by foreign embassies - and is just a few minutes walk from Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Other key tourist attractions are about 15 minutes away by foot. 2) Forget what you might have... More

Friendly stuff, excellent rooms, bars, food etc. I can truly recommend it! I forgot my scarf somewhere and they found it took good care of it until my friend picked it up and sent it to me. Larry Kärkkäinen, Helsinki, Finland

Very comfortable apartments, extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Breakfast brought up to the room at a time to suit me. I travel on business a lot and have grown to hate large faceless hotels. This really did feel homely and cosy. In fact, it's one of the best places I have stayed on a trip. One of the gems of...
