Great position in the city center of Sofia, very close to the shopping streets and historical part of the city. We got a beautiful suite on one of the top floors with a view to the russian church and garden nearby. Good breakfast. Wi-fi is better than in our previous stay here. we highly recomend this lovely hotel

The hotel has great location in the city center. The level of service is high but the building is quite wornout. The same goes for the hotel rooms but I must admit that the room sizes are big and equiped with high quality cosmetic material. I won't hesitate to stay in this hotel if I go to Sofia again.

We arrived in Sophia after a very long night of traveling. We were tired and in much need of rest. We had to wait about 10 minutes for our room and the staff upgraded us to a suite. The breakfast was nice, and the hotel is located within walking distance of everything. It is a perfect place to stay in... More

Moreover there are remains of a large roman building inside the hotel that could be seen. The room was spacious and the... More

We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights, it is located close to city center. It has all the standard services you expect from hotel. Best surprise was really good dining at hotel restuarant and good selection of international and bulgarian wines.

Arena di Serdica is perfectly positioned for a visit to Sophia. Right in the middle of town within walking distance of all the sights yet located on a side street away from city traffic noise, just about perfect. Would love to give it an excellent rating and perhaps compared to other Sophia hotels it probably is but the facility is... More

Dear rosegrwr., Thank you very much taking the time to share your experience. Location is priority number one to our hotel chain. Arena di Serdica is hotel combined with different senses like: age, because of the amphitheatre, and at the same time luxury and cosiness. Your remark is valuable to us. Hope to have you back in our hotel soon!... More
