Though the location of the hotel is superb, the whole room smelled with cigarette smoke, the linens and the sofa were quite old. We had a strong allergy after sleeping in the room. The window goes out on tram rails, so it's also quite noisy at night.

Hotel Stivan Iskar is an excellent BUDGET accomodation. They are located about 20 minutes from the train station and 10 minutes from central Sofia where all the sights are. The staff is great and Toni at the front desk is super helpful and very pleasant. The price is right for a budget accomodation where the rooms are clean.

The location is a 10-20lev cab ride to the airport and the hotel reception will call you... More

Being that our first frugal (hostel) lodging choice was fully booked......a bit of scrambling (via referrals) led us to the Hotel Iskar. Turned out to be quite a (superior) surprise! Highlights Included; - a VERY convenient central location......within an easy 15 minute walk to most of the major city sights......even within a brisk 20 minute walk to the Central Train/Bus... More
