This place has unique location on Sofia's famous cultural street Rakovski where most theatres are located. This provides for vibrant street life throughout the day and night, abundance of bars, cafes and clubs. But the flat faces quiet backyard and you'd be lucky to have peace and quiet. The place is appropriate for fleeting visits to the city where you won't need cooking facilities. The area boasts a lot of cheap home food places. You can reach all central location within 10 min walking.

The space

Despite it's location on bustling Rakovsky street it's extremely quiet thanks to it being positioned within a courtyard away from the street. Although you'll find the building dilipidated it was originally planned for an archeological museum and constructed by a German architect in the 1930's. On one side through the French windows you face the back of Sofia's satirical theatre. Opposite you there is a school and behind it a lovely church, worth a visit, that once used to be a mosque.

Interaction with guests

Apart from meeting you I try to leave my guests in peace. Of course I'll be available if you need help and local information.

Other things to note

You may be alarmed by the building's neglect and the dirty communal areas and backyard. Please don't highlight it in your reviews because there's nothing I can do about it. The Sofia council has introduced a law according to which each tenant is supposed to take care of building and communal area's maintenance. As result of infamous mass poverty (Bulgaria is EU's poorest member state) unfortunately not many are bothered about such maintenance.

We had a great stay at Mina's flat. The flat is bang in the centre of Sofia, within walking distance of everything. It kept reasonably cool even though the weather outside was very hot. It's used as an office so it has a bit of a makeshift feel to it, but that'll only be a problem if you want to make food in there. Mina was really helpful when it came to keys and leaving our luggage at the flat. Thanks for letting us stay over!

Minas place was great, fantastic location right in the heart of Sofia, the apartment is big to and very clean. Mina was great to communicate with and answered all our questions and was very understanding when we were late with check in due to getting the address mixed up.

Mina's apartment is conveniently located in the centre of Sofia. Communication was very good and the flat was clean. I would highly recommend this apartment as a good place to stay in Sofia.

We had complex and changing arrival & departure agenda but Mina has been very reactive and we had a great stay at her place. We would repeat for sure.

I work in London as freelance animator but I'm also involved in feature film producing with Bulgarian company activist38. The place I host used to be our old office where few successful and controversial films were produced. We have now moved to a larger office a little bit away from the centre but I still miss this buzzing location in the heart of the city full of character and close to most cultural venues.
