Scotty's Boutique Hotel
Ranked #13 of 107 Sofia B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 October 2013

It took a bit of finding but eventually we did. The reception is on the 1st floor and there is no lift. So be warned if you have heavy suitcases. The staff are very friendly and try to be helpful. If you are using a car during your visit then take advantage of the parking offered. It is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel but having somewhere secure was worth it. The rooms are basic but clean. You can order breakfast which is delivered to your room. In the room I had there was a small table which I could put the tray on and I sat on the bed. There was an ensuite shower and toilet which worked. There was Internet points on 2 floors, but the one on the top floor didn't work and the one on the 2nd floor was very slow. So slow I could not get connected even to Facebook because it timed out whilst trying to connect. That was frustrating and could be improved. Otherwise it was good value for money.

could be much better .... staff very friendly and helpful, but they should set a ring downstairs to call some staff for help (carrying luggage) and should take better care of general quality of bathroom (need renovation) and the rest : very very old linen, very old towels,
...
needs renovation

On the surface, our room appeared nice. This place considers itself a boutique hotel and instead of room numbers, uses names of cities and decorates accordingly. We stayed in the San Francisco room. The room was a disappointment. The floors were very dirty, and the bathroom smelled of urine. They did come and re-clean the bathroom when we complained, but it did not help much. I used the shower head and cleaned the bathroom myself and it did get better. Shouldn't have to do that. Could not bring myself to walk barefoot on the really dirty floor. Hair balls in corners of room from previous guests.

I stayed here 3rd - 5th July. It was a great base for visiting Sofia. Right by the Central Market Hall and a few minutes walk from the center. Excellent staff. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Sofia Good price - Great location. Also it seems to be in "shoe shop central" lol

This is a really nice hotel that is centrally located. It is across the road from the synagogue so within easy walking distance of most of the attractions. We were in a good size room at the front of the hotel and all rooms are air conditioned and provide a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom was not that impressive in that it is basically a wet room. A shower hose is located on the wall between the hand basin and toilet so everything is wet after showering. The shower pressure is great though and plenty of hot water. A basic breakfast is provided to your room and a good free wifi connection is available. There is no lift and the rooms are located over a few floors. The staff were very friendly and helpful when asked. I would definitely recommend to friends and would stay here again myself.

This gay-friendly hotel is located near Sofia city centre. The rooms are large and clean but the bathrooms are not that good. The breakfast included in the rate is ok but nothing more. They offer a trip to a monestary but think twice before you book that: it says the tour includedes a guide, but its just a driver who speak no english at all! The drive to the monestary is around 3 hours but its nice to see.

Good value for money. Location is excellent yet, surprisingly enough, the taxi driver had trouble finding it!

We stayed in the Prague room where the floor was making terrible noises when walked on. The room was small, but clean and the beds were comfortable.

Breakfast was rather unimpressive - 1 toast, cold egg, cold coffee.

Very fast WiFi.

Overall very good considering the price, location and very friendly and helpful staff.
