You have just congratulated me for my review helping this hotel win a "traveller's choice award" I resent this. If you view my review I was dissatisfied with my experience of this hotel and would certainly not recommend it for an award and will certainly not stay there on my next visit to Sofia. In view of this I will... More

We didn't think hotels like this existed any more! Small hotel ( maybe 10 rooms?). We stayed in a beautiful spacious suite , huge bed and my wife loved the deep roll top bath. Really appreciated the personal but unobtrusive service. We woke up to a huge 'French breakfast ' - so many fruits ( see photo). A lovely area... More

We stayed 2 nights at the end of November. A lovely small and friendly hotel in a quiet road, near a few embassie, restaurants and cafes. Fabulous suite, bath in the bedroom and a separate (large) shower room. Comfortable seating area, small balcony and double aspect windows front and side. The room was spotless, bed comfortable, plenty of storage space... More

We had the penthouse room in this charming hotel which had a lovely view of the rooftops in a leafy elegant part of town. We could even see the dome of Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in the distance. The room was long and narrow but clean and comfortable and nicely decorated. Oddly the shower was separate from the bathroom but that... More

Small hotel with mainly big rooms. Booked via www.booking.com and we got a good price during the weekend. The hotel is not in the most beautiful part of the city, but very close to the city center. If you want full silence avoid rooms by the street.

I had two reservations. One for 2 queen beds and one for a king bed. Both rooms were spacious and clean. Beds were soft and pillows were also. The hot breakfast has the best one I have had at a hotel. Usually it is 7-10 and when you get there at 9 there is no food left. The staff cooked... More

We weren't expecting such a great little haven just outside of the city centre but within walking distance. . The staff were all very helpful and the junior suite we had was a surprise as it wasn't very expensive and had a lobby area, a sitting room, bedroom and an enormous bathroom with bath and huge walk in shower.

Fine boutique hotel with a unique breakfast system. You order the type and tell them when to serve it - either in your room or in the breakfast room. If you are late then that is too bad. The French Breakfast is marvelous, lots of fruit, and scrambled eggs with a green peppercorn sauce on the side. Also lots of... More

I really like that hotel. Very small, very individual, staff was really friendly and gave avery warm welcome. Nice little bar, breakfasts on the room like my choice was. The room was not big, but furnished with highly individual interior. Many small restaurants close by. I will definitely come back!
