We had one night in this hotel and it exceeded all expectations. It was very nice indeed with large rooms well appointed bathrooms all in a very handycentral Sofia location and available for an excellent price. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Arena di Serdica to others.

Enthusastically recommended, business or leisure. I used most of the hotel facilities during my time there. The restaurant made Bulgarian cuisine approachable and food was thoughtfully prepared. Fitness facility very good. Some rooms offer a fine view over a park, distinctive Orthodox church spires, and the National Gallery of Art. Excellent staff, genuinely hospitable with polished service skills. The location... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with some friends for my first trip to Sofia. The ruins in the lobby basement are a strange sight at first, but have been very well preserved and integrated into the building. The hotel doesn't look much from the outside, but the bedrooms are large, modern and well equipped with fantastic large bathroom and nice... More

Fully endorse other reports on this hotel, my wife and I stayed 3 nights over a weekend and found everything to a high standard , from food to service. Wouldnt hesitate to stay here again, particularly if we can repeat the price of £70 per night to include breakfast.

We used the hotel to organise an international training course and the hotel could not have been more helpful. We included an assessment of the hotel on the course feedback forms and these were universally positive. My room was in fact a suite, and was perhaps the best hotel room I have ever stayed in. The public areas are fascinating... More

My first trip to Sofia and even though time was short and meetings were long, the hotel was a very welcome refuge. The facilities were excellent, the staff charming and the rooms clean and well equipped. With many hotels looking very similar, it was a welcome change to see the open plan reception atrium looking down onto a significant part... More

Moved from the Kempinski in Sofia to the Arena di Serdica hotel. Small number of rooms. Excellent value, perfect service (managed to get a french-speaking driver for a rather complicated & lengthy crosscountry trip for EUR 75). Located in the middle of Sofia, but in a quiet side street. The spa is small but beautiful. Rooms very large. Their "standard"... More

I stayed twice in 12 days in this hotel - the first time by myself, the second - with a client. In both occasions the hotel was great for relax, for business meetings (walking distance from all major business HQ of banks, institutions, etc.) and for visiting the capital of Bulgaria. Few steps from the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the National... More

Unfortunately I stayed only for one night. It is a boutique hotel in the centre of Sofia, near St. Sophia Church. Very good place to start for a walking tour in the centre of the city. All the staff is very friendly and helpulf, they allow also lake check out whitout any charge extra. Definitely I will come back.
