Artistic, loving culture, life, travelling and music.
I work in the editorial business and welcome every explorer to my lovely flat in the heart of Bulgarias capital!
The apartment looks as advertised and was perfect for our stay. We particularly liked the quality of the bathroom and the wifi.
Stefanita was a great host, making sure we were comfortable and taken care of. She was even nice enough to call us a cab when we left.
Only thing to be aware of in advance is the external appearance of the building and hallway, which is a bit rundown. Fortunately, while the outside looks a bit beat up, the apartment is great.
What a wonderful apartment in a perfect location!
The pictures are not exaggerated one bit, every room is decorated beautifully and it is spacious enough to comfortably fit a large family.
Stefanita is such a gracious host. She walked me through the ins and outs of the apartment on arrival and even helped me to arrange taxis when needed.
I will definitely stay here if I'm ever lucky to visit the city again, highly recommended.
Thank you for everything, Stefanita!
Returning guest! Another great stay with a great host. Everything went smooth and Stefanita had no problems welcoming us, even with our flight arrived quite late in the evening. Highly recommended!
Wonderful flat !! Everything is so good, tasty and well-looking!! We were very enjoying to spend a few days there.. Very good locating!!! Very close to city center and it takes a Few minutes to be near all important places in Sofia. Thank you, dear Stefanita for great hosting!! We are sorry only about one think- that we were there only 3 days.. I wish stay here for a loooooong time. Enjoy your holiday in Sofia in his flat!!!
Totally amazing place! Your secret paradise hidden among the roof tops from the bustling city... Everything worked perfect and the location is the best – just a block away from the old food market and as central as you possibly can be. Very clean and tidy and it's even better than the pictures.
(The only tiny drawback might be if you are several people is that there is just one toilet and it's combined with the shower/bath. And yeah, the beautiful old piano is unfortunately out of tune... but maybe the neighbors were better off without my dreary self taught Keith Jarrett improvisations...)
Stefanita is a super host and I'd love to come back. Highly recommended – from a normally very fussy person.
The apartment is extremely nice, clean and good value for money.
It is very spacious and the attention that the apartment has been given is noticenable. The photos are legit and not exaggerated.
It is close to the city centre, 5 min walk max.
It is also close to an indoor market where you can pick up local produce for cheap(€5 for a lot of food)
That being said, Stefanita became irritated that we forgot to turn off the lights on our first night. She had mentioned that we should turn them off, but her response seemed a bit over the top. Additionally, her father who lives below went absolutely crazy at my friends and I(he can't speak English) because we were rushing around in our apartment to get ready to go out and as the floorboards are thin the noise carried downstairs to his apartment.
Finally, safety is very good but you have to go through 4 doors to get to the apartment and it seems that security is unnecessarily high.
So to summarise, very nice apartment, good security, but you have people who have invested a lot into the apartment thus if you step one toe out of line they will go mental at you.
The apartment is exactly as advertised. It has the three things I care most about; good internet, a good shower and a comfortable bed. The hosts are nice and friendly and made my life easy. They found a nearby garage for my car and even came with detergent to run the washing machine for me.
This apartment whelms you in a retro-classic atmosphere. A kind of aristocratic charm mingles with nowadays coziness and one could never remain listless to this enjoyable impression. The fact that one is not able to find an ordinary corner inside delivers a stay one would doubtlessly desire to repeat over and over again.
Just an AMAZING apartment! You can't regret your stay here!!! Rooms are really nice furnished, comfortable bathroom, equipped kitchen, balconies with nice view, secured flat ... It's centrally located and you have everything within a short walking distance (supermarket, metro, bus, cultural places ...). Stefanita has been very welcoming and gave me all the information I needed. Thank you so much for everything and see you soon!!!
The apartment is truly a masterpiece – a very spacious one! I loved everything about the luxurious bathroom - I had never seen something like this until then! It was very cozy and warm. All in all we had everything we needed and more – it exceeded our expectations. This is truly the perfect place to stay when visiting Sofia.
Stefanita and her family took care of us and made us feel welcome and homey. They were very friendly and explained all important things we needed to know.
The best about our trip was the very central location of the flat - near to all big shopping streets, bars and restaurants, so it was great for spontaneous going out.
It was very warm and overall I highly recommend it and would love to stay again at this amazing apartment.
Stefanita is one in a million. Ever since I met her 7 years ago, she has been one of my dearest friends and someone I would trust my life with! She has a wonderful, loving and open-minded personality and I can promise you: You can only love this girl!
She is not only a great friend, but also one of the most reliable people I know. Her word is her bond.
I have always been amazed of how beautiful and unique Stefanita's apartment looks!
You can see, she has an amazing taste and style and is a gifted artist. Plus: she got the coolest flavor! :D
I have known Stef for a few years.
I met her when her and our mutual friend, Yvonne S. (see ref above), both took on the responsibility of working my merch table when I was on tour - without me even asking. I couldn't thank them enough, and could not have done it without them. They Rocked!
her spirit is naturally giving, warm, helpful, sweet, calm, quiet, ... she has a peace and light about her.
I have not visited her in Bulgaria but I would in a heart beat, knowing her tells me her apt would be a feast for the senses and well maintained!
I would def recommend her as a guest in your home, she is well travelled, considerate, quiet and a joy to have around.
Stef is a very dear friend of mine. I've known her for several years now, when she was still living in Berlin. She also already hosted me at her beautiful parents home, when i was visiting Sofia in 2010. She is a very warm person and an amazing Host! She also has a crazy passion for arts and music, specially good taste in hip hop music!
And yes the pictures she posted are for real. The apartment is just breathtakingly beautiful, has that typical Bulgarian / Greek / turksih influence that is noticable but at the same time extremly modern and stylish! You feel like a princes there!
