Facade is unlike other big hotels, nothing so especial about the hotel building. Its not even located at the central business district. My first thought was, why we were not put in a much bigger, known hotel?
Inside is different story. It was small but charming and cozy. And when you get inside the rooms, then that is when you will be delighted that this is the hotel you will be staying in and all other negative thoughts will vanish. I could say its has a feeling of being very homey. I could stay there for a long period. The drinks in the fridge are also complimentary, including the local beer.
Another best thing is the restaurant. Its very classy and it has the best buffet breakfast spread for 3euro! Staffs are nice also. :)

... his forehead! Just for Pattie! When we checked into our room we each had a goodie bag from our tour guide, with a map marked with good restaurants near our hotel, a folder with a detailed itinerary, road map of Bulgaria, two stamped postcards, timeline history of Bulgaria, water bottle, and a bag of cookies! The hotel had left us a small bottle of wine and a plate of fruit! We are in ...
... where the hotel was, so at that point, we got out,....transferred our luggage, and entered the other cab. Our guy took a loss on that ride, as we only paid him $10.00, but he didn't squabble. He was just happy to be rid of us.
The new driver started at the other end of the street, and drove us straight to the hotel.
We were so happy to be there, we didn't even complain about the ridiculous $10.00 he charged us for the 2 minute ride.
The hotel ...
... least! We said goodbye to our horses on the last day and also the 3 pups they had sleeping in the stables and caught up with the two girls that did the trail and it sounded like they had a ball. The next day we were transferred back to Sofia at about 1pm. We made our way to the central bus station and bought our tickets for the overnight bus to Romania and left our big bags in a storage while we went to find the start of the free walking tour. Lissa also learnt that ...
... Slovenia was impressively relaxed. I wandered across the bridges, admired the river, the public sculptures, the local market, the outside of the Cathedral and the distant castle up on the hillside. I pottered through the streets determined to use up my final euros as this was my last euro country.
Regrettably, I was so effective with spending up my final euros that when it came time for dinner, I was going to have to put it on my VISA. An impulse purchase in a shop ...
... The statue of Sofia you see in the photos was constructed after the Iron Curtain fell and the statue of Lenin was removed from the spot. The local's were used to having a statue there and, despite her having absolutely nothing to do with the city other than coincidentally having the same name, they decided to erect a statue of St Sofia. She holds an owl symbolising knowledge.
Sofia is unique in that it is the only European capital city not to be located either ...
