“Great budget option”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I was surprised to read a recent review saying this hotel was dirty...I assume their standards are maybe the Ritz...

Hotel is a 5 minute walk to the bus station are and the bigger beach.
It seems family run
Speaks German and English
Laundry costs 10 Lev for alot!
Room was very clean, good balcony view, working fridge
wifi worked well with ipad but not so great with phones in room, around pool it is perfect
pool is small but clean and has 5 lounge chairs to use
Clean white sheets and towels

Didnt have the breakfast
For unfit people, there are alot of stairs with no elevator (for budget hotel you should expect this anyway)

Nice and friendly place. I had room with sea view at last floor. View was nice but lack of elevator it's disaster. Wi-fi very poor.

Even don't think about ordering breakfast. Untasty and not enough for me.

3-/5

We were quite dissatisfied with our stay at Hotel Sofi this year.
The personnel (the owner) and the cleaners are unfriendly and unwelcoming. When we arrived, my boyfriend and I had to ask for additional towels as we were provided with only two. The room was not clean enough - there were some plastic folders of small packages in the drawers from the previous tourists that had stayed in the room and the windows to the balcony seemed not to be cleaned for a long period of time. Apart from that, we had occasional problems with the wi-fi in the hotel.
The pool is rather small and it was full all the time so we did not have a chance to sunbathe there. My boyfriend mentioned that he had noticed some dead insects floating in the pool so I should say that cleanliness is not a serious concern for the hotel in general.
On top of it all, in the reception area there was not a single sign at what time tourists are supposed to leave on departure. We presumed it was 12 o'clock noon (as announced in the hotel's web-site) but in the morning of our last day there the owner announced that we had to leave by 11:30 a.m. What our surprise was when coming back from the beach at around 10:45 am one of the cleaners told us we had 15 minutes to empty the room.
The price of the stay is cheap (60 BGN or around 30 EUR for a studio per night during high season) but as we had stayed the previous year in another family hotel in Sozopol which is on the same street (70 BGN or around 35 EUR again high season) and there the price-quality ratio was better with utmost attention to quality.
Unfortunately, due to late arrangements this year the other hotel was fully booked and thus we had to resort to Hotel Sofi.
