“Arte - Good Functional Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

We stayed at this very pleasant hotel for a short 3 day break in March. It was in a perfect location for sightseeing etc.

The hotel is functional and comfortable. Our room was small but spotlessly clean. The bathroom had a standard shower with good power. The usual shower lotions were supplied.
The room was very hot and we were told that the air conditioning was on “winter setting” and so will only blow out hot air! Never mind we just opened the window – this may not have been so convenient if you room faced onto the main road as it was quite noisy.

Breakfast was served between 7-10, however, it would probably be more accurate to say breakfast was put out at 7 and if you went down later you ate what was left.

The staff at this hotel were fantastic and could not do enough for you and were always willing to have a chat and give advice.

The hotel is well worth the price, but I suggest you look around for the best prices.

Room Tip: Rooms at the side are quieter

Stayed at this hotel at the end of November. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms were well appointed with all the amenities that you require for a short stay. Only criticism was the room got a little hot at night and that in the communal area it was clear that other guests were smoking.

For the price it worth it! nice rooms, nice staff, close to the center, and cool restaurants and clubs around, the breakfast is good. Nice staff, cool art selection thats why the name of arte. The breakfast and food for lunch is really nice, you dont see goons in this hotel wich is important in Sofia.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2012

The most central hotel we have stayed in in Sofia over the past 7 years, and one of the best. You pay a little more for the location, but it could be worth it to see the sights at close hand. It has been meticulously designed and finished to a high standard: visitors who are familiar with the art hotel genre in other parts of Europe will not be disappointed. The standard double room is on the small side, but adequate. Don't expect much of a view.
The lift and aircon were very welcome, though the latter is a bit all-or-nothing; the shower-room / toilet were excellent (although we were provided with just one set of towels before we asked for another set), the bed was soft but comfortable, as were the pillows. The carpet is nearing the stage of requiring replacement if the standard is to be maintained.
There is a very handy mini-market 3 minutes walk away, and the amazing Roman excavations are about 4 minutes in the other direction at Serdica Metro station.

We visited Sofia for the first time. The Arte Hotel is located close to the centre of town, the staff speak good English, and were very responsive when we had some minor maintenance issue. The room was very comfortable with good facilities and the hotel is attractively decorated with artwork and small bookshelves on each landing.

Cant beat the price or location. Right in the centre, by all the restaurants and shops. Spotlessly clean along with very helpful staff. Had a standard room which was a little small, would probably pay the extra and go for a larger room next time. Bed was very soft, however I slept very well. If your visiting Sofia and want a comfortable clean hotel, with friendly staff then I recommend Hotel Arte.
