This was the second time that we booked this hotel, because the location was convenient for us. Unfortunately, when we arrived at 9.30 pm to check in, the reception informed us that we cannot proceed with check in and that we have to talk with the manager. We asked what the problem was but she didn't say anything except that...

Friendly people, a great, quiet night's sleep, a delicious and very hearty breakfast, really stylish decorations, close to everything, all the major tv channels (& in different languages), a beautiful footed bathtub in the room and they even had a wonderful little sauna! The owners were very helpful. We loved our stay and hope to return soon! Don't even think...

Exquisite boutique hotel located in one of most exclusive district of Sofia (in the vicinity of embassies) close to the main spots (churches, museums and parks). Quiet, comfortable and nicely decorated spacious rooms offer the charm of a lovely hotel together with all the modern features.

Fabulous, cozy place. Very central and conveniently situated right opposite a great Italian restaurant namely Cippolini. In the courtyard behind the hotel there is another lovely restaurant, Cotto, where you can order room service and enjoy private dinner in your suite (don't forget the fireplace 😄). Simply lovely!

We were heading for another restaurant where we could not find places so came across this one. I am a bit reticent to surprises, but this was a nice exquisite atmosphere, a nice menu, good selection of wines, friendly staff, nice garden.

We booked a king suite overlooking Oberishte and arrived late on a Friday night in October - Noise from nearby bars was audible (though not problematic) from the street, but only with the window open. Varied breakfast is room service by default. Checked in late, after the front desk had closed for the night, but a secure key box and...

My husband and I are travelling through the Balakns for our 25th anniversary. Sofia was going to be a highlight of our trip, and I was sure from the reviews that this was the hotel for us. We arrived in town last evening and went to check in to Sofia Residence for our 2-night stay. The young lady at the...

You have just congratulated me for my review helping this hotel win a "traveller's choice award" I resent this. If you view my review I was dissatisfied with my experience of this hotel and would certainly not recommend it for an award and will certainly not stay there on my next visit to Sofia. In view of this I will...

We didn't think hotels like this existed any more! Small hotel ( maybe 10 rooms?). We stayed in a beautiful spacious suite , huge bed and my wife loved the deep roll top bath. Really appreciated the personal but unobtrusive service. We woke up to a huge 'French breakfast ' - so many fruits ( see photo). A lovely area...

We stayed 2 nights at the end of November. A lovely small and friendly hotel in a quiet road, near a few embassie, restaurants and cafes. Fabulous suite, bath in the bedroom and a separate (large) shower room. Comfortable seating area, small balcony and double aspect windows front and side. The room was spotless, bed comfortable, plenty of storage space...
