Nice and cheap but quite noisy Thin walls meant I could hear people from all directions. Nice view, annoying builders next door start their working day early but other than that, staff friendly. Very clean, moderately comfortable and super location. Would stay again.

Pocket Guide: 1 star Hotels in Sofia

Stay in a 1 Star Hotel in Sofia

A budget traveller’s dream, Sofia is one of the most affordable destinations in Europe. The thriving Bulgarian capital is home to an eclectic mix of architecture, along with a vibrant café culture and a burgeoning tech scene. There are plenty of cheap hotels in Sofia, and accommodation options include backpacker hostels, apartments and more.

Sophia has relaxing parks and gardens that draws in legions of young entrepreneurial workers. If you’re looking for an exciting, low-cost eastern European destination without the tourist hordes, the Slavic city of Sofia could be the ideal choice.

What Are the Best Areas to Find 1 Star Hotels in Sofia?

You’ll find one-star hotels in Sofia in prominent city centre locations, including the streets between Konstantin Velichkov and Serdika metro stations and in the area around Vitosha Boulevard, as well as out towards Borisova gradina park.

The range includes standard hotels, and hostels and backpacker accommodation, with options from popular budget chains. Expect to find basic rooms with minimal frills. Extra amenities might include high-speed internet access, air conditioning, on-site restaurants and room service.</p.

How to Enjoy a Budget-Friendly Stay in Bulgaria

You’ll probably find Sofia’s museums, galleries and other attractions already far cheaper than those of other European capitals, but there are still plenty of ways to save money. You can even enter some of the city’s cultural highlights for free.

One of the most rewarding ways to discover the city is to explore by foot, and the Free Sofia Tour – an English-language walking tour run by a non-profit organisation – is a great way to do so. Two-hour walks depart from the Palace of Justice every day, and no reservation is needed – just turn up. There’s also a free bicycle tour in the summer months.

Alternatively, spend some time people-watching in one of Sofia’s many parks and gardens. Zaimov Park has wide boulevards and picnic areas and is a free Wi-Fi hotspot, while the leafy City Garden has several cafes, lots of benches, and a spectacular fountain in front of the landmark National Theatre.
