I cannot fault either the room, the owner or the others who've reviewed this property. Yordan is friendly, can't do enough for you and is thoroughly pleasant. The room itself, spacious, clean and comfortable. Yordan went out of his way to order food for me as available menus are only in Bulgarian and I don't understand enough yet. He made... More

Behind the house there was a beautifull garden. You could barbecue there. Mister Chipilov is very nice. He woke us up at 3 in the morning, waited... More

Found Avel on booking.com. I booked it due to proximity to the airport and very pleased that I did!! Yordan is an superb host, very friendly and welcoming. Willing to collect clients from the airport at same cost as a taxi. Beware of taxi drivers at Sofia Airport unless you book through one of the main firms. Even better is... More

Fantastic guest house, would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Sofia. Close to the center and the airport, and with a 24 hour shop on the same road, it has everything you need close by. The rooms are well equipped, clean and comfortable, and the owner is great. He can arrange to pick you up or drop you off... More

Avel Guesthouse is a simple and well-run place to stay and the closest to the airport. Everything functions as it should, and the owner/manager is extremely helpful. The place is small, so anonymity is not an option, but the service is warm without being overbearing.
