Design HOTEL 36, Sofia
|36 Alexander Stamboliyski blvd., 1000, Sofia, BULGARIA.|
Description: Design HOTEL 36Located in the center of Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, Design Hotel 36 is a chic boutique little place with comfortable modern bedrooms reconstructed within the parameters of a historic building. With creative original design and an excellent convenient central location, this is the perfect place to enjoy a special atmosphere as you explore the city.
Each unique bedroom features free Wi-Fi Internet, a writing desk or table, and its own bathroom with amenities. Some rooms have an outdoor space such as a balcony. Some have a bathtub next to the bed, while others may have a transparent or translucent bathroom wall. Morning breakfast can feature fruit and marmalade, pastries, muesli or cereals and cheese.
Discretely located on a tree-lined street, the façade is clean and unpretentious. Two street side columns on the corners feature bay windows on the first stories. Between these bay windows is a balcony for those rooms to enjoy a street view. On the top floor above the bay windows, is a small French balcony, which is a railing directly in front of the door to outside.
Inside, the curving staircase and industrial caged lights along the rough brick wall hearken back to the historic origins of the building. The smooth white walls provide an interesting contrast to the course red brick. The curious bicycle wheel wall lights in the corridor are yet another creative touch in Design Hotel 36.
