I have stayed in this hotel before. On this particular trip there was only one room remaining which was their cheapest and smallest room. The prices was 20 Euros for one night (38 Bulgarian Leva). This is exactly the same price as the EasyHotel in the centre of the Sofia. However, the room at Block 531 is at least twice as big, the bathroom at least three times the size, the Television is free (and has many channels, including CNN) and the Internet is free, making this hotel actually much cheaper and better than EasyHotel. The metro (subway, underground) railway to Sofia is close by (500 metres/yards away) and fast, meaning that access to all the city of Sofia is quick and cheap ( 1/2 Euro; 1 Bulgarian Leva). The hotel is clean,the furnishings are in good condition, the beds were comfortable. This is the fourth time I have stayed in this hotel and the fourth different type of room. Each stay has exceeded my expectations for the extremely low price. If you use a taxi always use OK Supertrans (731-2121) they are honest! Restaurants in the area are inexpensive (they cater to the locals, not the tourists). There is a big supermarket just five minutes walk from the hotel (Billa) and a local grocery store just 20 metres/yards from the hotel. The staff is limited in their ability to speak English, but if you speak slowly (and simply) they understand almost everything. Next year (2015) the metro (underground/subway) will reach to the airport, so the trip to the airport will be 4-5 minutes and 1/2 Euro (plus 1/2 Euro for each large bag). However, for two people with bags a taxi will be only 3 Euros.
