The hotel exceeded our expectations. To be honest, Sofia is not a beautiful city, so after traversing it by wrong bus and then metro, the ten minute walk from the nearest subway stop didn't lift our hopes much. However, when we found the hotel (which was very easy), we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is very small, but quaint. The...

The taxi from the Central Bus station cost around 6 - 7 leva and we were happy with the situation and the look of the hotel outside. Although technically on a busy road the hotel is set behind a wide area of grass and only trams and a few cars come along the smaller road directly in front of the...

Basic hotel with nice breakfast. Very clean but a little bit old. Wifi connection is good. The problem is that the most of the rooms have single beds as result the three couple of us to sleep separated . Very close to the centre and 2 metro stations.

As a returning visitor of Sofia I think Renaissance hotel was way better then I had before, not perfect but good enough for a short stay. Hotel is clean, plain and simple breakfast good enough, and if things as a broken tile or missing shower curtain don't bother you not much complaining. Citycenter and shops are in walking distance.

Renaissance is centrally located, in walking distance of the major attractions. The rooms to the back are quiet, in the front is a tram stop. The rooms are ok but there are not enough accessible sockets for recharging two or more devices.

I stayed at this hotel last week for 3 nights. The hotel is close to Sofia's attractions and the train and bus station are 20 minutes away. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast simple but had several choices .

Tiny bathroom with obstructive door . Glass shelf directly...

“Trams pass in front of the building, but if you're a bit higher up (4th floor in our case) that's not too much of a problem.”

“Good location, try free Sofia tour if its not chilly, we started that tour but could not finish as it was getting too cold. try food at happy restaurants,The only Room tip i would say if you MUST stay here is ask them specifically if you need two single beds or one king bed.”

“Ask for a room at the back if you are a light sleeper but then you'll miss out on the views.”
