Superb situation, excellent for exploring Sofia on foot, right at the heart of the political centre and the historic atractions (St Alexader Nevski’s Cathedral, Roman Rotunda Saint George, Sveti Nedelya, the Sinagogue, National Arqueological Museum, city park…) of the City. The staff were friendly and polite, even the concierge who looked after me when I arrived at the hotel at... More

I stayed at the Arte Hotel in May 2015 when I was attending a conference in town. My room was simple and basic. A fair size with a comfortable bed and a small but clean bathroom. Generally the accommodation was unremarkable as was the breakfast. However, the staff in the hotel make this place worth a visit. They went out... More

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. Clean.... More

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
