although centrally located, the hotel is not recommended for those, who needs to have reliable internet connection. WiFi is very poor, not working most of the time and the staff is telling every day the fairy-tale about the guy who will come and fix it "very soon", until you leave. but if you don't stare in the screen, you will...

Superb situation and staff were excellent. Aircon was not brilliant but that apart excellent. There was no kettle/coffee/tea facilities in the room but a mini-bar. There cafes, wine bars and small supermarkets on the doorstep - many of the wine bars are open all night.

Right next to parliament, Grocery store And many wonderful restaurants only blocks away. Our first room was very small and mattress too soft, next day wew moved to a larger room with a firm bed.

We stayed for two nights for general tourism in Sofia. The staff were very helpful with good English. The bedroom and shower were fine and breakfast good. The location is excellent for exploring Sofia on foot.

This was recommended to us (and booked for us, on this particular trip) by a friend and business associate who has stayed here several times. We only had one night at the Arte Hotel but I have no problem recommending it. The location is great—right in the center of Sofia—and everything we were able to do in that one day... More

We booked this hotel due to its central location in Sofia. What a bargain ($42/night)! Nice large room on 1st floor (a tiny bit of street noise with the windows open, but nothing to disturb our sleep). AC was fine and the hotel has classical music system available in each room. Flat screen TV. Good mattress. Helpful staff. Quick 15-20... More

The staff was very polite, and the area felt very safe because all the government buildings are there. It is very easy to reach everything in the center. The beds are comfortable and the breakfast OK (though 10 euro is too much for the selection). Also I appreciated the fact that I was upgraded for free to a bigger and... More

Found this hotel on Trip Advisor. Could not have been happier. Hotel is in the perfect location for a day of sight-seeing by foot. We walked everywhere and saw almost everything. Then, came back to our super clean rooms for a change of clothes and out to dinner. Staff had a list of recommendation to meet all appetites. Would definitely... More

It's my second stay in the hotel and I had the same excellent service, quite room with a lot of sunshine and wonderful view. The food was very delicious and the wine was fragrant and memorable. Prices are more than reasonable!
