We stayed here one night and we were very happy with this hotel on arrival - great location and nice room. Problem arose when we came back at 11pm after an evening out. Got into our queen bed to discover that the carefully folded top sheet and duvet was a single! There are no staff in the hotel overnight (from... More

This is a great location and management is indeed very helpful, and willing to address every caprice the guests might have from breakfast in room to ice and cold snacks for late arrival. Also wifi works works great including VPN and the TV has full list of local cable channels unlike the major chains in Sofia who have 10-12 international... More

The hotel is small but comfortable. The rooms are good and very clean. The service is adequate. There is not restaurant for breakfast but the food they serve to the rooms makes you feel you are at home. The only problem would be that you have to order breakfast in advance, i. e. the evening. On the other hand, it... More

The property is, as the full name suggests, small, but comfortable. At least the 3rd floor suites are spacious and in good condition. There is, however, quite a lot of noice from the air conditioning equipment and the sound insulation in general could be better. Also the breakfast offering was good, albeit coldish at 9:30 AM. WiFi works at decent... More

Yes, I've been several times. And not without a reason. There are only about 15 rooms and they don't have numbers, they have names. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, everything works. The staff is very kind and helpful and try their best to fulfill all your wishes. Breakfast to your room is free of charge! (or at least last... More

Let me say at the outset that there's nothing seriously wrong with this hotel, and there is quite a lot to commend it. Honestly also requires me to declare that all of the things which I found not particularly likeable were also fully disclosed, or at least predictable based on the information available. I chose this hotel because I prefer... More

I have lived in Sofia for many years so I am a bit of an expert. This hotel - both in terms of location and rooms - is ideal for exploring Sofia. Spacious rooms with great layout and amenities. Excellent service. An abundance of cafes, restaurants and shops around and most sight seeing within walking distance. Plus a great price.... More

A cozy hotel, nice location, decent price. Tasty breakfast (can choose from a wide variety). The hotel is situated on Oborishte Street, a nice, quiet street in a residential area (many embassies around).

This was the second time that we booked this hotel, because the location was convenient for us. Unfortunately, when we arrived at 9.30 pm to check in, the reception informed us that we cannot proceed with check in and that we have to talk with the manager. We asked what the problem was but she didn't say anything except that... More

Friendly people, a great, quiet night's sleep, a delicious and very hearty breakfast, really stylish decorations, close to everything, all the major tv channels (& in different languages), a beautiful footed bathtub in the room and they even had a wonderful little sauna! The owners were very helpful. We loved our stay and hope to return soon! Don't even think... More
