Staff were repeatedly and without exception kind, helpful and knowledgeable. The room was huge and spotlessly clean, the breakfast buffet fresh and varied, and, of course, the location is unbeatable. For the price, this was by far the best hotel value I've had in a long time. I'll certainly be staying here again.

The owner describes his hotel as a "small luxury hotel of the finest caliber" and then goes on to write how it is an art hotel filled with culture. No. Just, no. Hanging a few paintings in the dining room does not make this an art hotel. In fact the lobby and the rooms are really ugly with no aesthetic... More

I stayed here for a business meeting (8 people total, each in their own room) and everyone was happy with their stay and the hotel location. The hotel was centrally located: right off the "yellow brick road," across the street from the President's balance, within walking distance to most sights downtown, and in a very quiet area. The room itself... More

What I loved the most about this Hotel was its' location. It is within walking distance to many great restaurants, bars, the largest Metro Station, and many interesting places. It was always very easy to go anywhere from there so we rarely had to use any Taxis. It can get a little confusing which Metro exit to take though. We... More

I chose this for location - just East of city centre, so very easy access to/from airport, walking distance of Archaeology Museum & National Gallery, trams 20/22/23 almost on doorstep, 10 minutes walk from Metro. Stayed in June 2014 - 3 stars - and in June 2015 - 5 stars. For the same price I got a room twice the... More

The location of the hotel is very good for both sightseeing and shopping. Vitosha street is just minutes away. However, there is an excavation going on around Serdica station so the direct passage from subway station to the hotel is closed. You will have to go up to the street, walk outside along the side of Sheraton and then down... More

Average. Ideally situated down town, this hotel is very badly soundproofed. Beds are small and the air conditioning makes a noise of airport. Poor wifi but free ...Value for money but that's it ! This hotel doesn't match my standards

If you're looking for a reasonably priced hotel that is comfortable, centrally located and walking distance to many historical sights in Sofia, Hotel Arte is for you. It is basic but has a helpful staff, very clean, comfortable, small rooms. It is a small hotel with stairwells nicely appointed with art work, and a good breakfast with a variety of... More

We had our wedding in Sofia and this is where we stayed for our wedding night. It was beautifully prepared and to be honest I don't remember much about the room, which is great - means the room was good enough not to notice it and instead have a fun wedding night hehe

Superb situation, excellent for exploring Sofia on foot, right at the heart of the political centre and the historic atractions (St Alexader Nevski’s Cathedral, Roman Rotunda Saint George, Sveti Nedelya, the Sinagogue, National Arqueological Museum, city park…) of the City. The staff were friendly and polite, even the concierge who looked after me when I arrived at the hotel at... More
