The space

Hello, dear guest/s-to-be. We moved to the country side and are renting out our really cool loft/studio. The house that it is in, is almost 140 years old! Here the first German-Bulgarian dictionaries have been written by our great grand dad, back when Bulgaria was a monarchy! During the communist time, an underground print house was run in it, and in the days of democracy a really cool vinyl records and manga comics shop brought over most of our friends in a daily base. Now-a-days we have many horses and many kids, so we live in the country side, and thus our place is available for you.

Guest access

We have not "off limit"areas. However the hostel above us is a completely different business, and we would like to ask you to have that on your mind- just knowing that there are other guests there.
The location is at an inner yard, so it is quiet, and there is no direct sun light indoors, making it a very good rest-well place. If you are longing for a more bright mornings - an inviting flower and greenery surrounded bench outside can become your coffee table or a laptop, or book reading bench. Please dispose of your trash at designated areas and try to keep pleasant for others. Basically: feel home but also take care of it like one.

Interaction with guests

We live in the countryside, and though you can always contact us via airbnb, it is rather unlikely to meet us in person. Unless of course you decide to take the one hour trip direction Samokov, and visit our Happy Horses Estate at the Shavarite Nature Preserve to ride with us our beautiful horses, along the shores of the Iskar lake, the biggest body of water on the Balkans.
At the studio you are basically on your own. Of course you may always contact us if you feel the need to, we will sure get back to you within an hour or two via email, or you can also always call the phones provided if there is an emergency. Please, though there is a hostel above with a receptionist on duty 24 hours, which also provides extra safety, we mustn't bother him with any of our inquiries- after all she/he is really only responsible for the hostel's guests.

Please, be so kind and as a courtesy to the other guests do not smoke in the studio. There is a lovely outdoor area where you can sit and have a cigarette. Also, make sure you have turned the gas bottle valve off after each use of the stove to prevent leaking of gas. And please help us maintain our low price by turning the lights that you are not using off- the electricity price has gone way up in recent months.

Svilena was prompt and responsive to all our requests. The flat was just as expected and was very nicely located to downtown Sofia. We were able to leave our car and walk everywhere we wanted. It was a great value, especially for the location.

This was such a perfect place to stay for our time in Sofia!! Svilena was so kind and very accommodating. The location is in a neighborhood right next to so many shops and restaurants. We didn't even need to use public transit because everything was so close. But if you want to use public transit, it is very close too. The space had everything we needed and we felt very welcomed and comfortable. Would absolutely recommend this place!!

Great location, loads of character, efficient use of space! Easy place to be self sufficient and with good access to major attractions and transport links. Can be a little dark during the day but we would definately stay here again. Many thanks to our helpful and communicative host!

Excellent apartment for base in Sofia, very well-equipped and the host was very professional. We were just two but it would be excellent for more, at least 3. Location is fantastic for exploring the city!

Svilena's place was nice, clean, and in a great location. She was easy to communicate with, and helped us to arrange an extra day with her on short notice.
