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. :)

... was impressed by the Thracian treasure in particular. At first we thought the Thracian treasure room was closed off, but then we realised that although the door was closed, people were actually still allowed in. I couldn't get over how amazing a lot of the craftsmanship was. The burial masks, helmets, jewellery, drinking horns, wreaths of almost paper-thin gold leaves... just absolutely stunning.
The temporary exhibition room now had an interesting exhibition ...
... This is probably the key to meeting people that I've been missing for the past few weeks, during which I've been opting instead for shisha. Eastern Europe seems like a fine place to put this into action. At this moment I'm drinking a 1L beer which cost me about $1.50. I could get used to this place.
PS - It's kind of surreal to hear late 90's / early 2000's trance being played in a McDonalds at 10:30am. That's considered chill out music in this part of the ...
Once we returned from Kazanluk, my days in Sofia turned into a leisurely affair I could very easily get used to. My friends and family were all at work, so I'd sleep in, then have breakfast and coffee with mom and dad, then go run errands with mom - she'd always go out in the morning to pick up the newspaper and other odds and ends. I'd read the paper once we got home, then work on my blog or catch up on the phone with friends until the evening. That's when everybody was free, so ...
... good beer. Main meal had we think avjar relish that went well with the chicken and pork satay meat. Coffee and cake was an adventure. Ordered white coff, got thimble of treacle. Asked for milk, mouth full came in a big cup. OK, pour thimble into big cup, hmm tide still way out and stone cold. Gar ...
... later and I finally received my new passport. During this time I also received my bank card. Progress..with me, not the government. The only thing I had left to do was to go to the Bulgarian Embassy in Skopje, Macedonia and get my visa.
If only it was that simply. I had to go to the police station in Dimitrovgrad and then the Immigration Office in Sofia to get the documents I needed to get the visa. Chaos. Efficiency is ...
