Rooms are on are on the small side, and the building is showing it's wear and tear. Still, everything is clean and the location simply can't be beat. I paid about $60 for the night, and based upon my experience with other places in Sofia, I think that is good value given the location.

This small hotel has a very good location, but that's the only positive thing about it. Our room was very small and worn-out. Air conditioning didn't work and it was extremely hot inside. We couldn't get any warm water in the first 2 days, so taking a shower was a freezing experience. Carpeting was propably original, at least it was... More

The location was really nice, and room was spacious and clean. Air condition worked well and could be adjudged, bathroom was nice and room was quite. Staff was very helpful. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel, but went to Rainbow Factory around the corner, which was awesome.

Stayed in a deluxe room (402) for 3 nights. Nice service, though unfortunately the elevator was out of order the last night. The room was nice, made specially for us I think in orange color. Very pleasant price level and well worth a stay! I can recommend this hotel.

Arte hotel has a superb location, close to most of the capital´s places of interest, goverment buildings and shopping areas. The room we had was very small, but clean and cosy. We didn´t book breakfast at the hotel. Instead we went to the Rainbow Factory, only 50m away, where the food and coffee are spectacular.

It's very cheap, considering its central location. So I didn't expect much. Staff are not friendly, but helpful enough. The whole hotel area is stink, possibly from dump carpet. Room was very hot and temperature can't be controlled..... I had to sleep with the window open.

The hotel has excellent location. It is exactly in the city center. You may see nice pictures on the walls in the hotel. Rooms are different. Some rooms have nice view to the Main Street. Other rooms have not nice views. Rooms are warm and cozy.
