The Hotel Aris is located just north of central Sofia and is just a short walk to the train and bus stations. There aren't many restaurants in the area, but a short ride on the subway or a 20 minute walk to the center of town offers lots of options. With all the graffiti and tagging in this area, I'm...

Hotel was clean and modern. Staff were friendly. Location is about a 20 mins stroll to the main strip with places to eat along the way. Got up for breakfast the first morning but wasn't worth struggling up for again. Would definitely rebook this hotel or the sister hotel which has parking and just across the road.

We stayed in this hotel as my father in-law has been here before and it's location is perfect. The rooms are nice and clean, in addition they are easy on your wallet. I would recommend this hotel to anyone for a few nights stay. Also there is a great restaurant just around the corner.

I chose this hotel due to its proximity to the main train station, and was not disappointed. Very good value, including breakfast. The room was spotless, with a recently refurbished bathroom, comfortable bed, helpful reception staff etc. The hotel is a couple of blocks away from the main road, so was nice and quiet despite it's location close to the...

I had a very pleasant stay in the Aris hotel in Sofia. The hotel is located near the station (not one of the best areas but perfectly safe), and around 15-20 minutes walk to the centre. The staff were delightful at all times. I had a problem with the air conditioning in my room when I arrived, and they immediately...
