“Artistic rooms, nothing fancy but cozy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2011

I loved the apartment that supposedly was shared between three rooms but I had it all for myself :) The bathrooms are shared, as well as the living room and the kitchen. You can find useful things everywhere, like iron, hair drier, glasses for a late night wine with friends and the kitchen or the living room was perfect for a quiet chit chat. The room was clean, nothing fancy, as said but very artistry decorated. The whole ambience is like a big mansion of an artist, with paintings, sculptures which is nice.
Try to avoid it though in autumn and spring as the building is connected to the central heating system of the city which will provide heat only if the average temperature is below 10 degrees for 3 days in a row.
I was in mid October and it was cold. They did have a mini heater in the room but didnt help much as the rooms are big and tall and the windows are not properly isolated.
Location is perfect for travelers, absolutely gorgeous, dont miss the book and fruits market in the weekend, you will have the occasion of taking beautiful picture, as well as a walk in the park during the sunny afternoons when seniors gather to play competing games of chess and bands are playing.
Another downside is the fact that they dont take credit cards and instead of an english speaking receptions, its the guard who will not know to guide you unless you speak Bulgarian.

The apartments were very clean and spacious, and the breakfast on the roof was great. The Red Cafe served excellent food in a Warhol-inspired decor, or outside in the garden. On-going cultural programs include film, lectures and dance, as well as debates about civil society.

The B&B is quiet, clean, beautiful itself, and well located in Sofia. The locale is pure Sofia, a neighborhood, not like around the big hotels, but safe and reasonably active as late at 2 am. The staff often speaks no language but Bulgarian. A drawback: they refuse credit cards, and the local cash machine charges outrageous rates. Breakfast starts at 10:30 which is not so good for most people. But the charm, the quiet, and the locale made it a real delight for me.

Be WARNED! We had the worst experience with this clueless and arrogant establishment. We confirmed the room shown on the website, the nice one. When we arrived, they had switched us to a third floor (my 80 yr old father was with us and had to climb all those steps). The odor of bug spray knocked us over and didn't wear off! The place was really grungy, the sheets were suspect and the towels were strangely STIFF and literally threadbare. The bathroom was so dirty, there was a wad of hair mixed with some unidentified gunk in the shower. The breakfast was unavailable at the advertised time...it kinda messed up the end of a great trip.

  • Liked — the pictures on the website
  • Disliked — finding out the pictures were very misleading

Sofia is great place to be, and apart the reasons theres the atmosphere which started from the redhouse b&b, a center of arts and conferences, there were parties (tango party) photos exposition. ive been there at the first meeting with my new boyfriend, romantic, nice security guards, very caring housekeeper, and perfect place for my future trips to sofia.......
