Best area to stay in Sofia?

Hi everyone, I'm going to Sofia for a long weekend with friends in March.

Where is the best area/place to stay? We'd like to be fairly central and want to see all of the sights and party in the evenings. Thanks!

Hi! If you choose an accommodation in Sofia city center, you will be within a walking distance to most major sightseeings, nice bars, restaurants and intersting places of our capital. Long weekend will be pretty enogh to enjoy the city and even make a day trip to Rila Monastery or hike in the fabulous Vitosha Mountain!

There are lots of good places to stay downtown - from budget to luxury, just check them in the appropraite TA section.

Have a great stay in Sofia

If I were you, I would stay in the city centre.

If you prefer to stay in a hostel, try http://www.canapeconnection.com/

If a hotel is the better choice, this one has a great view over the centre - http://www.centralparkhotel.bg/

If you are on a budget and want central location I can recommend http://popbogomil.com/en/. I've used it several times. For me it is the best in terms of location, service and price.

I stayed in a quiet side road about three blocks east of Vitosha Avenue, and it was ideal. The Main Street of the country nearby, the government area and its buildings, the parks, the Palace of Arts and the square, the market and the railway station, plus good nightlife right on my doorstep. And this area was well frequented by taxis, whose drivers were helpful and honest.
