Let me start by saying the staff are really friendly and helpful, and the location is great easy for walkers, and taxis are extremely inexpensive for everyone else. The room was a little subpar/dated, but it is totally adequate. It was my first time in Bulgaria, so perhaps this is typical or maybe better than average accommodation by Sofia standards

Perfect place to stay if you want to be in a 5 minutes walk from the very heart of the city - the Alexander Nevski Cathedral, the Parliament and the shopping areas around. I enjoyed the restaurant with the delicious meals at Fair price, just as good as the breakfast. I've been in many 4* hotels true the capitals of... More
