Last year with my friends we decided to celebrate New Year's Eve in Bulgaria. When we arrived a great surprise was already waiting us. A friend of mine had booked a flat in the center of the city (50 €/night/4p). The apartment was way beyond our expectations. It was very spacious and clean. But the greatest part was definitely the view to the mountain! We spent a great time in Sofia!

This hotel was a very pleasant change from previous accommodation we had stayed at in Sofia. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. It was light, spacious and clean. It had everything we needed when staying with young children, including washing machine and dryer. Everything worked. The apartment was cleaned every three days, which suited us very well. The apartment was safe and secure. The location worked perfectly for us. No complaints!

We really loved the location of Sofia Inn Residence - it's right next to the main shopping street and convenient for transport as well. It can be hard to find but the owner has put up a sign so it's not so bad. We were met by a friendly lady who showed us our place - it was the top-story studio and the views were great all around. We stayed for a week so only got service (linen and towel change) once - the towels did get stinky so we would've preferred a more frequent towel change but I suppose we could've asked. This is a budget place so that was expected.

Security is pretty good - you use your keyholder to buzz into the building and operate the lift. The room was pretty basic and needed refurbishment but suited our needs. There was a stove top with 2 electric burners, a microwave and an electric kettle, as well as pots/pans/plates/cutlery. Like a previous reviewer, I wished that they would've stocked up on salt - the salt shaker was empty.

Since we'd asked for twin beds, the hotel brought in a daybed in addition to the main bed, which was really uncomfortable. The main bed (american full size, british queen size) was ok. The blinds were too light to darken the room to any significant level. In addition, the noise off the street was preventing us from sleeping so sleep quality was fairly poor. The place was more or less clean (tiled floors all around) but the leather couch was seriously torn and more or less gutted and the furniture was old. The toilet was a wet room so take care not to spray the toilet paper roll when showering! There was a hole in the wall behind the toilet, which was covered with some posters. There was no lid on the toilet. I suppose you could call it "student dormitory level" accommodation. The TV worked fine and had some english speaking channels (I speak bulgarian so i was fine). There was also free wireless internet, which worked well. Outside there was a sitting area with some chairs (behind the building), which we didn't use but it looked fine.

Finally, there was some noise from the neighbours next door (someone talked on the phone for about 2 hours) but the street noise covered up most of that!

No one bothered us for most of our stay and it was good to have a kitchen and a convenient central place to stay, so overall I rated it a "4". If you are really worried about sleep quality and mind the student-y furnishings, don't stay there. Otherwise, the serviced apartment thing a great idea and if the owner refurbishes it and puts in triple glazing, it would be perfect.

I stayed at Sofia Inn last year and was surprised by how much it offered for the amount we paid.
It is in the center of Sofia, the apartment was huge with everything you may need and the service was impeccable.
I would recommend it to everyone who wants to get even more for what they have paid for.

The apartment was very large and extremely clean. Hardwood floors good furnishings and high ceilings made for a luxurious feeling. Location is excellent near many nice restaraunts and shops. There was good internet, tv, and a nice music system. Although on a busy bulevard the windows were double insulated and there was good airconditioning, so the room was plenty quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful, however there is no front desk or daily maid service.

Dear Stanislav,

My wife and I stayed over one night, recently, at the Residence Inn, the night of Augsut 12th-13th. We were in a small studio on the sixth floor. We want to tell you how much we appreciated everything. You have made the residence inn a delightful place. The studio was comfortable and very nicely done. The view from the balcony is pleasant, and we enjoyed the back courtyard. We were even pleasantly surprised to find a small Italian espresso maker. This was very thoughtful of you. We made espresso when we got up, which made our early morning departure much more tolerable. The Inn is also well located. In the evening, we walked up the main shopping boulevard, and then came into the pedestrian area of small streets and shops. We very much enjoyed this area.

We will be coming to Bulgaria again and, if we need to stay over in Sofia, we will certainly come back to stay with you. Thank you, again.
