“Great place to stay!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

My father and I stayed in Diter Hotel for a week, which is located in Sofia. It is located at a stone throw distance from Main Street of Sofia. It is a small hotel with many bars and restaurants close to it. Staffs are very kind and friendly. They are ready to help me at anytime (24*7) with a smile. They picked me up from the Airport and dropped me there with a return gift. The AC was really super cool. The rooms were super clean and very well maintained. It is overall a delight.

The other reviews were right. This small hotel located on a quiet side street in Sofia, but close enough to walk to the main retail area, is a pleasure to stay in.

The staff, the service and the cleanliness really are first class. I have stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels that don't offer this level of friendly and personal service.

Highly recommended for business, pleasure and families.

Diter Hotel is a lovely family owned hotel in a very central area of Sofia, close to Vitosha Road and other interesting places. The staff are very helpful and the owner of the hotel himself came to pick up from the airport. The restaurant offers lovely lunches and dinners at very reasonable prices. The rooms were clean and warm and included little luxury touches such a little chocolate on the pillow every night. Excellent service at a very competitive price.

Diter is in a quiet residential side-street near the city centre. It has its own restaurant or there are some others just around the nearest corner. The pedestrianised area is 3 or 4 blocks away.

The first thing you notice is that the hotel has a guard just outside the (side) entrance.

The reception staff spoke English, it varied from good to much better than that.

I was not particularly happy with the room. It was a couple of yards from the restaurant and there was another building hardly any further away in front of the other window. The shower was strange but I managed to get it to work. At least there was a shower-cabin, something which is not a 'given' in Bulgaria.

Breakfast was a buffet but with minimal options. They covered the main bases though.

I don't know how much the group paid for the hotel, we did not use the restaurant.

Room Tip: Higher is probably better although I don't remember a lift.

I stayed at the Diter in 2012. I took a group of 26 back to Sofia in 2013 and stayed at the Diter for two weeks. Everyone loved the hotel. If you want a hotel where the receptionists and manager are personal, then you want to stay at the Diter! The rooms are comfortable. The Garden Restaurant is relaxing. Our whole group hated to leave! We were treated as close family. Every request was given top priority. This may sound exaggerated, but we found every one very helpful, going beyond the call of duty. You cannot get a better manager. Even the owner showed up one day and offered his personal help! The hotel is in a great location, just four blocks from Vitosha Blvd, close to NDK, and not far from Levski Stadium. Restaurants abound in the area! The Diter is located on a small side street so it is quieter than some other hotels. Internet connections were great. Breakfast was more than sufficient, and delicious. Our group would never dream of staying at another hotel in Sofia. Thanks to all the staff at the DITER HOTEL!

A short walk away from lots of amenities, in a quiet street and with huge beds and good air-con, this is a nice hotel by any standards and miles better than many that Sofia has to offer. Breakfast is plentiful and with all the usual bits of cheese, fruit and so forth. The restaurant attached is nice enough as well. Recommended

The Diter Hotel is a small and cheap hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. the rooms are small, but equipped with everything you need. Everything is clean. I found the wireless internet connection to be smooth and fast (a very impoertant criteria for me).
The location is very good as it is in walking distance to town centre. There are plenty of restaurants in the neighbourhood of the hotel.
For taxi drivers the hotel doesn't seem to be easy to find.
I found the breakfast table not fully ready on time as e.g. the bread came 15 minutes later. The offer is small, but sufficient.
