Fast-paced Sofia is one of Europe’s best-value capital cities, complete with well-planned parks, a vibrant pavement cafe scene and historic Roman, Byzantine and medieval monuments. Sofia’s cultural attractions and eclectic architecture are matched by a good range of hotels, guesthouses, and other accommodation, making it a great destination for a city break.
Most hotels in Sofia fall into the three-star category, so there’s an extensive range to choose from. Use Expedia’s search tool to filter the options by area, property type or proximity to a particular attraction, and you’ll find something to suit your needs.
Accommodation in the three-star price bracket includes both standard hotels and apartment-style properties, plus a handful of guesthouse and B&B options too. Styles range from Soviet-era blocks and more contemporary glass-and-steel towers to hotels housed in elegant neo-Classical buildings with colourfully rendered façades.
Choose a hotel in Sofia city centre and you’ll find yourself within easy walking distance of all of Sofia’s main sights. Most three-star properties also provide several amenities, such as business services, WiFi, and a bar, lounge or restaurant.
Sofia’s public parks are one of its biggest draws, with visitors often surprised at the size and quality of its open green spaces. Sofia has four major parks: Borisova gradina dates from 1884 and is the best known, while the South, West and North parks lie slightly further afield. The city centre also includes the very popular smaller parks of City Garden – home to the National Theatre – and the Doctor’s Garden, dedicated to fallen medics from the Russo-Turkish war.
Alternatively, head out of town altogether. Mount Vitosha, to the south of the city, is the oldest national park in the Balkans. Its prominent silhouette is visible from almost every part of Sofia and it’s an inseparable part of the city’s character. The landscape includes stone rivers, spruce forests, sub-alpine grasslands and a network of caves. Activities include skiing and snow-showing in the winter, and hiking, mountain biking, caving and rock-climbing in the summer.
