A very central hotel, 2 minutes away from the main pedestrian street, Vitosha. The staff at the reception were quite helpful. We stayed at room 402 , which was quite big indeed. There was a problem with the safe. Unfortunately we had not been notified about it beforehand. As a result, our belongings got locked into it and we had... More

Very beautiful hotel Art Deco style, very charming. Clean. Very well located close to a Main Street with many restaurants, bars, shops. I recommend, especially room 402, very big and nice, as on the pictures.

The best point for this small hotel is its central location, just behind the pedestrian Vitosha street, and in the middle of the tourist area. The hotel is very quiet. I booked a basic room with single bed. The room was indeed basic, with no amenities such as coffee and tea facilities or iron. On this occasion I did not... More

This hotel claims that it is a four stars hotel - it is not. I won't even give it 3 stars. The staff is helpful and friendly. All the light in the hotel is diffused, even the light in the bedroom, so much so that I could not see opening the safe as I had to use the torch light... More

Located in a by lane from the main pedestrian street, this hotel is a quaint hideaway. I love the hotel because of it's non invasive style, size & comfort of room, good wifi, central location and good prices. The breakfast is limited and not up to the mark, plus there is no wifi in the restaurant.

As the name indicates, an arty hotel. Nicely decorated, comfortable large double room. Decent sized bathroom. Despite its central location the hotel was quiet. The hotel's public areas are decorated extravagantly even bizarrely and the dining room is a bit over the top for breakfast. Good breakfast and overall good value for money. Reception staff helpful and friendly.

This hotel is almost good. Most reception staff is friendly. Location is excellent. Breakfast can be improved: no fresh juice - while Sofia is a kind of fresh juice capital, no coffee but only nescafe, slection of bread limited and not always fresh. No safe in my room. Room not on street side, so quiet. However, i could perfectly hear... More

What I liked: Very helpful and friendly reception. Rooms relatively small, but this was not a problem for me. Very fast and smooth wireless internet. Hotel in short walking distance to most sights and amenities (restaurants etc.). What I didn’t like: Elevator a bit slow. Difficult for taxis to come to hotel (one way street).
