Naturally, you can use the fully-equipped kitchen, and a place will be reserved for you in the refrigerator for fresh fruit juice, eggplant fondant, and various olives.
We enjoy meeting travelers from all corners of the world, and we like taking care of our guests.
If you wish, we would happily share with you our experience of the Bulgarian capital over a cup of coffee or tea. We can help you plan your time in and around Sofia to take complete advantage of your stay. To escape some tourist traps, we can tell you where the best exchange rate is, the favorite traditional restaurants of "sofiotes" (the inhabitants of Sofia), the markets of fruits and vegetables visited frequently by the Bulgarian housewives, the public transportation, and the least expensive car rentals.
We are fascinated by the Bulgarian culture and traditions, in particular the folk, very popular dance here, among young as well as old Bulgarians.
Our apartment is very centrally located, you can get by foot to the center of the city and all the main attractions. Other neighborhoods in Sofia are accessible by subway (metro). A station is located 5 min from the apartment. But the charm of Sofia is also in the streetcars, the trolley buses, and its very old buses.
To reach the apartment from the bus station or the railroad station, you have several options:
We recommend you to take a taxi which, in Sofia, is very cheap. Since stations up to the apartment will cost you no more than 6 lèvas, that is 3 euros.
But if you are not too tired, and prefer to walk, you will be in the apartment in 15 or 20 minutes by walking at a normal pace.
You can also take a tramway, but you will need to make a transfer. If you choose to use this option, please let us know and we will provide you with the details.
If you would like to visit attractions outside of the city you can use the two subway lines.
Two stations are availables, both located 5 min walking from the apartment: SERDICA and ST. KLEMENT UNIV.
If you arrive to the airport, a bus will drive you to the city center in 40 minutes, but the taxi is more practical (between 12 and 18 lèvas, 6 - 9 euros according to the traffic).
To visit the city, you will not need to use transport, you can just visit it on foot. Nevertheless, know that there are 3 tramways lines, 3 bus lines, and 4 lines of trolley buses, less than 200 meters from the apartment.
Other Things to Note
We provide you towels.
We do not smoke; but if you would like to smoke, please use the terrace.
Also, please be aware there is a cat living with us in the apartment.
Excellent accueil, Nicolas est un hôte hors pair , attentif , il a su nous donner des conseils avisés sur Sofia et sur ses coutumes.
Appartement très bien situé et très agréable. Nous avons opté pour le petit déjeuner préparé par Nicolas. ..
délicieux et copieux.
Nous recommandons vivement cet hôte.
Очень приятно было жить в этой квартире. Комната уютная и светлая. С лоджии открывается великолепный вид на Софию и окрестности (видны горы). Все чисто и аккуратно. Большая и красивая гостиная - кухня.
Хозяева гостеприимны и доброжелательны, помогают с необходимой информацией.
Квартира находится в центре, в пяти минутах ходьбы от собора св. Александра Невского, в тихом месте.
В следующий раз надеемся остановиться там же...
Nicolas is a fantastic host and his apartment is wonderful. I can not imagine that we would have enjoyed our stay in Sofia nearly as much without the guidance and friendship of Nicolas and Clément. When we arrived the information booth had no maps or advice so remember to print out the maps and advice Nicolas sends you before you leave! It is perfect and it will save you time and expense! Nicolas took us out for lovely walking tours of Sofia and shared his favorite restaurants with us. In this way we not only saw the sights of Sofia we also learned about Bulgarian traditions, customs and history. He even assisted us as we shopped for souvenirs in the market. Making sure we got good prices and fair deals. My son was headed to a French exchange program and a bit shy about speaking. Nicolas is an amazing French teacher and he took my son under his wing and gave him the confidence to speak fluently. He even invited my son to sit in on a private 90min lesson with one of his students. Clément speaks fluent Bulgarian and he organized our taxi rides and even arranged a spa massage for my mother. My mother said this was the best massage she ever had. We opted to have breakfast in the apartment as well and it was delicious and opulent. Nicolas laid out enough food to last for days! They have a washing machine and an elevator so everything is convenient and easy. In the evenings Nicolas and Clément welcomed us to join them with home crafted liquors from Bulgaria. We were also privileged to share in Clément's birthday celebration while we were their guests in Sofia. Nicolas kindly accommodated my son's allergy to milk when preparing the birthday cake and, when my son wanted to help, Nicolas graciously let him and cleverly turned the process into both a math and a French lesson without my son realizing it! There were many other occasions were Nicolas kept my son entertained with lessons in geography, math and French grammar. The whole time we were there my mother and I kept saying to each other how lucky we were to be in such a beautiful apartment with the most amazing hosts! We are already dreaming of a return visit to stay with them again and we are hoping they come to stay with us soon. We chose to use Airbnb save money on hotels and to have a more authentic cultural experience. We never dreamed we would end up making lifelong true dear friends but indeed we will treasure our time in Sofia because of the kindness and generosity of Nicolas and Clément and I am sure that we will keep in touch and hopefully find the financial resources to travel halfway around the world again to see these friends again one day. We are extremely grateful for their hospitality. Hopefully you will be lucky enough to stay with them as...
It was a great pleasure meeting Nicolas and Clement and staying in their cozy and comfortable place. They are very warm-hearted and eager to help - providing traveling advice in the city, getting the taxi, helping with laundry and offering home made cake ……
The place is very convenient, a few minutes walking to the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and 10 minutes walking to the square. For those who cares about privacy, the room offers a private bathroom and terrace.
All in all, I had a very enjoyable stay in Sofia thanks to Nicolas and Clement.
Nicolas and Clement were great hosts!
A great place to stay in the heart of Sofia very close to everything of interest to any visitor. Room was big, bright and very inviting. They are very hostile, considerate and friendly people. We had very interessing conversations. The room with balcony was private and quiet. The location of the apartment is great, so near to the city centre. I absolutely recommend this host. Very positive experience.You will enjoy it! Thank you!
Nicolas and Clement were the best possible hosts. They are very fun to be around, knowledgeable, and helpful. Throughout my experience, I was given valuable advice on what to do with my time in the city. I enjoyed my time hanging out, going to dinner, and walking around the city with Nicolas and Clement. The room is spacious and was very clean and put together upon my arrival. There is direct access to a balcony with a nice view of the city. I had a great time overall, and would fully recommend this as a place to stay in Sofia!
Nicolas made me feel extremely welcome, he was very friendly and eager to help me settle into Sofia. He made sure I had everything to feel comfortable and we had some nice conversations. The apartment was lovely as was the neighbourhood.
