Only stayed one night. Rooms are dated but clean and comfortable enough. You could pay a lot more for somewhere posh but if you're budget is limited then this hotel is perfectly adequate and good value. Staff spoke good English and were polite and helpful.
nice clean hotel in a central location near the city and the bus and train station. very friendly hotel owner. rooms clean but basic. i would recommend it!
We had the hostel sign outside the window, which gave the room an interesting hue! There were a lot of steps to climb, be warned. The staff were all helpful and friendly. Breakfast was a packaged croissant, but ok til we went to the shop down the road to get fruit. Great location, didn't use public ...
The hotel is right in the town centre and it's so cheap for the location and for what it offers. It's clean, the staff are very friendly and polite and your breakfast is included. You're minutes away from the town which is full of shops and right next to a metro stop.
If you’re looking to visit a great-value European capital then the Bulgarian city of Sofia is an excellent place to start. This rapidly growing metropolis is brimming with trendy coffee shops and fascinating museums, and Sofia is well-known for being affordable. If you’re on a budget then Sofia is an ideal place to find cheap hotels, guesthouses and a range of two-star accommodation.
Nearly all of Sofia’s two-star hotels are in the compact city centre, particularly in the streets close to Central Station and Lavov most metro stop, or close to Vitosha Boulevard.
The property types range from standard hotels and guesthouses to apartments, hostels and other backpacker accommodation. Expect straightforward guest rooms and dorms – sometimes with in-room fridges and microwaves – with either en-suite or shared facilities. In most cases high-speed internet is provided, along with other amenities such as laundry rooms, bars or lounges. Some properties offer air conditioning and/or complimentary breakfast, while others provide an on-site restaurant or room service.
Sofia continually ranks as one of the cheapest cities in Europe for tourists, so even the kind of attractions that would be pricy elsewhere are often affordable here. There are plenty of ways to see the city for little or no money at all.
The National Art Gallery on Battenberg Square was established in 1928 and houses a rich collection of Bulgarian art, including more than 3,500 paintings and 800 statues. The gallery is open most days and its central location makes it easy to get to wherever your hotel is. Just outside the city in the foothills of Mount Vitosha is the World Heritage Site of Boyana Church, which houses some ancient 13th-century frescoes.
Back in the city, some major museums offer fee-free entry at certain times, such as the National Museum of History and the National Gallery for Foreign Art, and the National Archeological Museum – but even the usual ticket prices for these are budget-friendly.
Book a cheap hotel in Sofia and you’ll have plenty of options for enjoying this vibrant city on a budget.
