About This Listing
400 thread-count cotton sheets and towels, high-end queen size mattress, lots of sunlight.
Designed by San Francisco architect Courtenay Dill Glander, this spacious apartment has been recently remodeled to serve specifically as an AirBnB destination in Sofia. The location of the unit is unbeatable: it is just two blocks from the pedestrian Vitosha Boulevards and right next to the National Palace of Culture, one of Sofia's greatest landmarks, and home of some of the best night clubs in the city. The apartment is located in a historical building and features amazing high ceilings and restored original artwork and wood paneling. The unit is rather quiet and features newly installed double pane windows.
The tasteful, cozy and comfortable furnishings will make your stay in Sofia very enjoyable. My wife and I rent three properties in San Francisco and this is our fourth project which we just finished remodeling together with my parents, who live in Sofia. They will be your hosts and also offer convenient airport pick-up for $20.

Vladislav was quick to answer any questions we had and the place was exactly as described. In a fun neighbourhood with new restaurants and close to main pedestrian street. Quiet and a grocery shop across the street. Highly recommended if you are planning to walk around Sofia from a good location.
Vlad's parents were there to greet me in the beginning and they were quite nice and polite---no complaints whatsoever.
Great location close to the center of the old town and five minute walk from the meeting place for Sofia Free Tours. It is decorated lovely and has about everything you need. It is also near the Serdika Metro stop which provides easy transport to and from the airport.
We stayed here for 3 nights and it felt like home by the end. Vlad's dad met us at the apartment on arrival and was very friendly and nice, Vlad was quick to respond and helpful via email. The apartment itself is lovely with high ceilings and everything you would need. Perfect location, close to the Main Street and supermarkets. There's a great Russian/Bulgarian store on the corner diagonally opposite to this apartment!
Our 5 night stay in this apartment could not have been better. We were met right at the front door by Vladi's family and shown the apartment features, given the key and heard check out instructions. The apartment is bright, cheerful, comfortable and exceptionally clean. The location is ideal for seeing Sofia on foot, we walked to all the sights and interesting neighborhoods. It is quiet at night for sleeping, and the bed and pillows are comfortable. The lighting is very good in the apartment, it is especially bright in the good sized bathroom where it is needed. WiFi worked great. The TV has a couple of English channels. We did use the handy washer/dryer. The bath towels are soft and large. The kitchen is well equipped, we had breakfast in each morning, the other meals out. There are grocers and lots of restaurants & cafes nearby. I highly recommend Pastorant and Grape Central, absolutely wonderful restaurants within a couple of blocks. We used (website hidden) for 4 different driving services, they were excellent! This is a delightful apartment for a stay in Sofia, there is so much to do nearby, and it is a safe, friendly neighborhood. We loved strolling on Vitosha at night after dinner, we felt like locals!
We couldn't have been happier with Vladislav's apartment. We were met exactly on time. The description was completely accurate and everything was in excellent order. The location was in a good neighbourhood, two blocks from the pedestrian street. We walked everywhere and there were good restaurants within a block. or two. The building entrance was a bit run down but the apartment was great.
