The hotel staff were really helpful and would always go the extra mile to give me info I needed regarding Sofia and nearby towns.
The mattress wasn't very comfortable. And the bathroom was too small so much so that it was impossible to take a shower without getting the whole floor wet.
the little balcony on my room
that I could hear in my room all noises on the floor and stairs. The door wasn't really tight.If the wardrobe is so small I would have liked to have some hugs for clothes on the door or wall. Good that the hotel has internet for all, but is was so slooooooooooow.
This was an excellent hotel for the money - easy to find central location (just behind the covered market). Staff were friendly and helpful, rooms are characterfully trendy, wifi worked perfectly and there was plenty of workspace. Breakfast was basic but as a freebie perfectly adequate.
Being on the tram route some people might find it a bit noisy but that wasn't a problem for me.
It is an excellent hotel for the its 3 stars.
breakfast could improve (i.e., croissant was very dry - maybe better to serve toast?)
The location is as central as it can be, all the advantages of staying in the center are yours. It is the old stylish building made for the hotel recently providing the rooms with air and space...and style.The staff is friendly and helpful. Good value for the money paid.
Not disadvantages, just the details one has to know: there is no lift, so just be ready to climb up the stairs. The continental breakfast is served in the rooms.
Very quiet - in fact didn't see any other guests at all ! Very good price and location.
Poor breakfast and didn't like that it was served in the room only. Cancelled the 5 Euro english breakfast for thsi reason.
In Scotty s Boutique Hotel was really nice Paris-room! Very style and comfy. And location is really excelent
all was ok
Room was big, nice and cosy.
The lack of a shower when the room is so big is interesting. You have to shower on top of the toilet which is unsanitary.
This is the second time I visit this hotel. it is down town very close to all sightseeings and the market. The personel is very kind and helpful (english speakers) and the rooms very comfortable. I think this small hotel is the best choice for Sofia cause it's really cheap, clean and in a very good location.
the small bathroom was a little bit annoying,but after my second visit I had already got used to it. Overall was really good for the money we paied.
The people working at Scotty's were very helpful. A quick email to them and we were able to arrange pickup and dropoff at the airport for only 35 euros (and the driver was fantastic). The hotel itself is in a great location in downtown Sofia, within easy walking distance of many restaurants, sights, and the metro station. The room (Paris room, all have different city names) was nice, large, and had a comfortable bed. The breakfast included each day was good, and was delivered to the room whenever you wanted between 8AM and 10AM. As mentioned the staff were very helpful, once helping to arrange for pizza delivery from Pizza Hut.
The room, while nice, had a very odd smell in the bathroom. We left the fan on most of the time, and opened the windows, and this helped to reduce, but did not eliminate the smell. There is a streetcar line running directly in front of the hotel, and if you room has windows looking on to the street, be prepared for loud noises through most of the night (and early morning) whenever the street cars pass by. The referigerator in the room did not work, and the TV only had a few english channels. There is no elevator in the building, and while this wasn't a big issue (since our luggage wasn't too heavy, and we are fit enough to carry it), people with lots of luggage or with trouble climbing 2-3 stories of stairs might have trouble.
Fantastic location, really friendly and helpful staff and a comfortable bed. We booked up again for the last night on the way back to the airport. Found this in the Lonely Planet Guide (also tried The Old Town Residence in Plovdiv from the Lonely Planet Guide, but can't be enthusiastic about that one). Other reviews about Scotty's are fair - the furniture is not expensive, but if it is comfortable and the atmosphere is friendly - you'll pay a lot more for the Sheraton. You can opt for an "English" cooked breakfast for an extra payment, but a croissant with jam, butter, small orange juice and espresso coffee was included in the price already. Buy snacks at the covered market if still hungry.
I was surprised that it was necessary to pay 10 euros more, per each 24 hours, for parking in hotel garage!?!
I didn`t use at all hotel refrigerateur, but living my hotel room, they ask some money from me...for one bottle of water...it was opened, they said!?! Strange, but was it necessary to make a control of refrigerateur entering to the room? Was it my mistake?
It was economic and very central. The staff were always available and helpful in every circumstance. I got cabs cheaply to places like the Boyana Church and could walk to galleries and museums easily and even had the experience of going into a mosque and a synagogue nearby. There was free internet on the landing and I could check emails and what was on. I loved my balcony at the back, especially for eating breakfast on and in the evening just to sit. I could eat opposite in the Market Hall which also had a poshta and anything else I needed. There were plenty of other places to eat within walking distance, too. I felt quite at home during my stay in Sofia
I would have liked a little variation on the breakfast menu as I was there for 8 days. But I appreciate that if a hotel is to run within a certain budget then some things are not possible.
friendly staff, - I booked a standard room for single use which was not available when I arrived but they very quickly upgraded me to a better room instead
no lift! The bathroom was very basic - no separation from toilet to shower/basin
Everything was ok: our room services, the attention of reception, our position in the city, and the after check-out.
