Seaside remains a favourite destination for many of Sofia's residents – and when they leave for their holiday in July and August, the city takes on a very different look. Finally you can always find a table in your preferred restaurant, as well as a parking spot. There are no queues for the open-air events, and the museums and galleries are cool and welcoming. This is probably the reason for more and more tourists to pick exactly the city for a summer visit. All you need is the proper choice of a hotel.
Take your break from the city in the most stylish way possible, at the Hilton Hotel Sofia. A landmark in itself, the Hilton boasts excellent location and perfect service. Gourmet restaurant Seasons combines local and international cuisine in a trendy setting. Watch out for the barbeque menu and homemade ice cream, which are the highlights for the summer season along with a terrace to enjoy the view of city and mountain. You can spoil yourself thoroughly with the health club, indoor relaxing pool and sauna, or you can step up your work mode with the free working space on the Executive Floor. The Hilton also offers seven convenient conference rooms and a ballroom.
Whether you want to play the tourist or have important business meetings in the city, you can plan for both with the convenience of Park Hotel Moskva. The hotel has strong traditions in hospitality, being in the area of embassies and business centres, and is mere steps away from the metro line that can take you to the heart of Sofia. Make use of the newly refurbished rooms with fabulous view of the Borisova Garden, try the panoramic restaurant on the top floor and leave all the details of your event – for up to 600 guests – at the hands of the professional team.
Located in the very city centre, hotel Downtown is within walking distance from the historical sites, company seats and government institutions. The tasteful rooms and suites complement the gourmet restaurant offering Bulgarian and international cuisine alongside an extensive wine list. The conference rooms are equipped with LCD TV, secure high-speed Internet and multimedia. After the deal is done, you can snatch a massage or visit the sauna to relax and get ready for a good dinner in the hot spots of Sofia.
After a week of exploring millennia old ruins and trendy summer cafés, you may feel that Sofia offers enough material for a month – or longer. Aparthouse Block 531 offers apartments and rooms for longer occupancy for your case exactly, and you can feel at home rather than at a hotel. Prices and convenience are a strong argument, as well as the proximity to Sofia Airport – you can easily find suitable transport for the 10-minute ride to the centre.
In case you are looking for a place of the utmost comfort, Ganesha Hotel is exactly right. All the details in the soundproofed rooms, including anti-allergic carpeting and high-quality mattresses, are meticulously planned to give you the best experience possible. You can relax after a long day spent on Sofia's landmarks, enjoying the use of cable TV, Wi-Fi access and a beautiful hotel garden.
Get a room with a view of Sofia and the mountain in the charming Vitosha Tulip Hotel. The well-equipped rooms have wi-fi Internet and digital television, and in the traditional Rodopchanka restaurant you can enjoy the best of Bulgarian cuisine. The hotel is suitable for business trips as well – with free transfer to and from the airport and just 15 minutes away from the centre of the city here you can have some peace and quiet after your work meetings.
If prices are important, but so is the location, Cheap Hotel lives up to its name in the region close to the Central Railway Station. The perks do not stop here – you enjoy free wi-fi throughout the hotel, 24-hour reception and a starting point for a great night out.
