! All guests are kindly requested to announce their arrival time ASAP by email, SMS or phone call.
! Please do not be fooled by bad appearance of the house's facade. It is a historical & architectural monument, belonging to Sofia Municipality, we cannot change it, but all interior is fully renovated up to highest tourist standards. For the same reason we have only small signboard on facade. Please note that we are Guesthouse, not a hotel or hostel !


From Central Bus/Train Station:
By Metro (~8 to 10 minutes):

Take the Metro in direction center for 2 stops, on Serdika Station, get out from the Exit with Catholic Cathedral/ask for info/. Continue along the
boulevard until reach the crosswalk with semaphores. Just before semaphores you will see in right, a paved street used for parking. Our house is the third after few tall buildings and separated from them with concrete fence. Ring the bell with our name next to the metal entrance gate.

Walking: (~20 to 25 minutes)

Take Hristo Botev blvd, in 5 minutes you will cross the bridge at Slivnitsa blvd. Keep walking straight from the left side and stop at the intersection with Todor Alexandrov blvd. Take the small paved street with parking area beginning at the left sidewalk. No 12 is on the right side after 2 buildings. ring the bell.

By public transport: (~ 13 to 15 minutes ride)

First of all buy two tickets - 1.00 lev (0.50 Euro) each (one for you and one for your luggage) from the nearest newspaper kiosk. Then take a tram No 6, 9 or 12, in direction Center and stop at the 3rd. Cross the blvd and walk to the intersection with Todor Alexandrov blvd. Take the small paved street with huge parking area, No 12 is an old house on the right side, after a block of few tall buildings. Look for the bell with our name standing next to the metal entrance gate. We are new and still do not have sign on the house facade.

By taxi: (~ 10 minutes ride)

Distance to the hostel: 3 km, an honest fare is 0,60 Leva/km daytime(written on a sticker on the cab window). You can find cheap taxis in front of the MAIN entrance of the bus station only - it is 150m in left from the train station. Check the exact company name on the car's doors and motor hood. The correct sign should show 'OK Supertrans' and 9732121. There are fake taxis with similar name and phone as well as sign design. The total fare should be no more than 4-5.00leva /~2.50Euro/.

From Sofia Airport:
By taxi:

To avoid scam go to the desk of 'OK Taxi' at the terminal and request a cab to our address. The distance to the property is 15 km, honest fare is
around 15 Lv (8 euro) daytime

The place is a big parking area in front of Hello Sofia Guesthouse where you can stop and park your car.

We always recommend to use our pickup service and avoid hassle and troubles caused by famous Sofia 'taxi' drivers or public transport. Hello Sofia is located 1 min from the most central and important metro station - Serdika and about 3 mins walking from City's most central architectural spot /Sofia's plan main-point/ - Cathedral Sveta Nedelya
