Costa Coffee SofiaThis is an espresso bar chain that have coffee houses across England and many cities in Europe. The reason that I went into the coffee house in Sofia, Bulgaria was that it was located right opposite the Hostel Gulliver. I also enjoyed that the coffee house in Sofia was located to some of Sofia main tourist attractions. To the left of the coffee shop is an ‘Emporiki’ bank and to the right is a Bulgarian clothes shop. Costa coffee also have an outlet in the Mall of Sofia and may have elsewhere in Sofia.About the coffee, it is a Italian type of mocha coffee.

Restaurant | "A Very Nice Restaurant in Sofia"

Joya Bar and Grill, SofiaWe considered this to be a conveniently placed restaurant in Central Sofia, near the administrative area of Sofia. We were pleased by the good standard seen at the Happy bar and grill, and we had a quick look at the outside of the restaurant and decided that this was a nice and appealing restaurant to enter. The one thing that slightly hinders the restaurant slightly, is that there is a strip club to the right of the restaurant. We did not let this affect us, and we decided to proceed with our restaurant visit to this place. Before we entered we had noted that the place was open 24 hours a day, which to me indicates that there is some popularity with this restauran...Read More

Happy Bar and Grill Restaurant SofiaIntroductionWhat I liked about the Happy Bar and Grill restaurant, was that it was easy to find in the cultural and administrative area of Central Sofia. The location of this restaurant is opposite the Sheraton hotel, and is also a stone’s throw away from the churches of St Nicholas and Alexander Nevski. There are other Happy Bar and Grill restaurants around Central Sofia in that I noticed one in the Mall of Sofia and another restaurant in the North area of Sofia. The chain boasts a good number of well located and pleasantly inviting exterior that draw us into the restaurant. I also read a review about Sofia in General that recommended this r...Read More

Reserving a roomWe had looked at hostelbookers.com website and they had a wide variety of hostels to choose from to stay in Sofia as well as other destinations. Though we had already booked a flight to Sofia, and we realised that the Hostel Mostel was the top rated hostel in Sofia, and the 6th highest rated hostel in Eastern Europe. These claims were taken from the hostelbookers.com website. We decided to stay two nights out of four that we had planned to stay in Sofia. On the booking website, we had our reservation confirmed back in January, we paid a 10% deposit, and we were not asked for the full balance, until our stay was over. This helped us greatly in terms of budgeting as well as w...Read More

==Introduction==This was our first visit to Sofia in Bulgaria. I found out of the two hostel's that we stayed in recently (March 6th - March 10th) that this was second best of the two Hostel's visited. I shall describe the Hostel in detail before comparing this to the other hostel that we stayed in called Hostel Mostel. Both of the Hostel's we stayed in for two days and were both located inside the town centre of Sofia. Make no mistake that for the price paid for both visits represented a budget friendly amount to spend, as well as being a City break destination that is highly memorable as well. It is located a few minutes walk away from the Administrative and Cultural centre area of Cent...Read More

Restaurant | "My Favourite Restaurant in Sofia"

==Decor Ambience==The good thing about the ambient room temperature was nice and warm which did the restaurant well in providing a good level of heating inside as outside the weather was cold. What we noticed was a wide range of decor details that impressed us, as when we walked in to this restaurant we noticed a very traditional interior that also replicated itself throughout the restaurant. There was a cloakroom which I found slightly unique and interesting in that we could leave our coats and jackets guarded and looked after by a member of the restaurant family members, who I must say appeared friendly. The bar area was interesting in that there were interesting traditional decoration a...Read More
