A small hotel in the city center next to Vitosha street. I stayed there for one night. Big,clean and quiet room with a comfortable small living room. Big and nice shower. Fine Wi-Fi. The television is far from the bed. The view of the windows was nothing special. Kind receptionist. It has a fine small cafe-bar next to the entrace... More

This hotel claims that it is a four stars hotel - it is not. I won't even give it 3 stars. The staff is helpful and friendly. All the light in the hotel is diffused, even the light in the bedroom, so much so that I could not see opening the safe as I had to use the torch light... More

Arrived at this hotel on March 7 with a reservation for 10 days, which was too long as I discovered later. First thing that I didnt like was the stairs in the entrance, which were too steep for me. Second thing was the WI-FI THAT DID NOT WORK, IN SPITE OF THE PASSWORD THEY GAVE ME.At the reception I was... More

Located in a by lane from the main pedestrian street, this hotel is a quaint hideaway. I love the hotel because of it's non invasive style, size & comfort of room, good wifi, central location and good prices. The breakfast is limited and not up to the mark, plus there is no wifi in the restaurant.

As the name indicates, an arty hotel. Nicely decorated, comfortable large double room. Decent sized bathroom. Despite its central location the hotel was quiet. The hotel's public areas are decorated extravagantly even bizarrely and the dining room is a bit over the top for breakfast. Good breakfast and overall good value for money. Reception staff helpful and friendly.

This hotel is almost good. Most reception staff is friendly. Location is excellent. Breakfast can be improved: no fresh juice - while Sofia is a kind of fresh juice capital, no coffee but only nescafe, slection of bread limited and not always fresh. No safe in my room. Room not on street side, so quiet. However, i could perfectly hear... More

What I liked: Very helpful and friendly reception. Rooms relatively small, but this was not a problem for me. Very fast and smooth wireless internet. Hotel in short walking distance to most sights and amenities (restaurants etc.). What I didn’t like: Elevator a bit slow. Difficult for taxis to come to hotel (one way street).

Yes, I agree with other reviewers lobby is smokey (you feel it since you first enter), but then- you have a hotel really in city center for 45 euro/day!!! Room was very big (just compare with any hotel room in center of Paris/Wien??), clean, bathroom huge also. Breakfast lousy- but you do not have to pay for it, and you... More

I have stayed here many times. All main museums, art galleries, restaurants and shopping all within a few minute´s walk. Staff very friendly and helpful. Carpets a bit shabby and the place is a bit funky, but I like that....

I am regularly in Sofia for business and until now stayed at the Art'Otel. It wasn't perfect, but it was well located and not too expensive. Staff were friendly. It's been noticeably going downhill on my last visits. The breakfast is now pretty poor and the rooms look outdated and dark. My previous trip sealed the deal - there was... More
