The Art Plaza Hotel is located a couple of blocks from one of the main streets in Sofia, and is very close to shopping and a nice park. Rooms are regular sized and nice. Hotel breakfast buffet was much nicer than expected. Staff was helpful and spoke English.

Hotel has a perfect location- it is close to metro and city center- all major attractions are easily reached on foot. Room was ok, beds are comfortable.

The rooms are in average size, little more comfortable than more European hotel rooms. The hotel is clean, good variety of breakfast food. The only disadvantages is that there is no drinks and refreshments in the lobby.

Located close to the Metro and Vitosha shopping boulevard. Noisy breakfast room, with music sometimes at near-discotheque volume. Large top-floor suite, but with a toilet that has leaked each time I have stayed there. I was charged once for mini bar drinks I had not used.

Needed one night sleep over in Sofia, and when I saw a good deal on booking.com (36 EUR instead of 110 EUR per night) immediately booked this hotel in central location. Arrived late, directly from the airport after travelling for 15 hours. Check in was nice, without any problems. Room was small, but that's not a problem - I'm there...

Hotel is two steps from boulevard Vitosha, which in fact is the city centre. You can reach everything on food. Staff is extremely polite, kind and nice. If you are going to visit Sofia do not hesitate Art Plaza is the best choice.

The room was noisy from internal noise coming from other rooms and also externally - especially on week days - as it is a busy street and, even with no windows open, there seemed to be no noise insulation. A comfortably appointed room, though a small wardrobe. Just about ok for a 1 or 2 night stay. Magnifying mirror and...

This could be a lovely hotel just a minute away from the main commercial street in the center of Sofia: Vitosha Boulevard if not for the service. No kindness, no smile, no recognition of Diamond level in BW programme Rewards. Lack of initiative and commitment of the staff. Treating guests as a nuisance. Breakfast below any standards. Unpleasant service. Despite...
