Top tips for finding the perfect Bulgaria hotel
The largest and most vibrant tourist city in Bulgaria is its capital, Sofia. It’s about three times the size of any of the other towns, so you’ll find many of the country’s tourist attractions in and around this city. The City Hotel Sofia makes for a good middle-of-the-road option for your stay.
Experience Bulgaria’s history in its “City of the Tsars”, Veliko Tarnovo. Located in the mountainous northern region of the country, it retains the original cobbled streets and half-timbered houses with colourful terracotta roofs. It is also famous for its Byzantine-era churches, and Hotel Rahovets is a good choice of accommodation for easy access to the town’s historical attractions.
To stay in an authentic old Bulgarian hamlet that’s little more than a collection of restored cottages, book accommodation in Zheravna. It’s located at the base of the Balkan Mountains and where the traditional Bulgarian folk festivals take place.
Burgas is known for its great beaches and parks as well as being the main town for music festivals, like the Spirit of Burgas. What makes this town so different is its modern Art Deco architecture, which you can experience first-hand by staying at the Mirage Hotel.
To view the most famous Eastern Orthodox monastery in existence, book your holiday in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Rila. Besides its eponymously named monastery, it’s also a melting pot of Romanesque, Byzantine, Arab and Mamluk architecture. Hotel Centaur makes a good choice of accommodation here.
If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Bulgaria, you should consider visiting during the low season. You'll find cheaper accommodations in Bulgaria in June and September.
Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in Bulgaria if you stay on a Wednesday. The opposite is true for, Thursday, which is usually the most expensive day.
Book more than 90 days before your stay begins to get the best price for your Bulgaria accommodation.
How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their accommodation in Bulgaria for 1 day.
FAQs when booking a hotel in Bulgaria
One of the most prominent tourist attractions in Bulgaria is the small resort town of Varna, on the Black Sea coast. It still has functioning old Roman bathhouses and a number of historic sites like the Dormition of the Mother of God Cathedral. The Archaeological Museum is a fascinating place to visit, as is the Aladzha Monastery, an astonishing maze of caves carved into the karst cliffs outside the town. To stay nearby, book your room at Dionis Hotel or Fantasy Apartments.
The party capital of Bulgaria isn’t Sofia but rather the town of Sunny Beach. It has some of the best bars in the country and plenty of beachfront to enjoy. Clubs and discos are plentiful, too, attracting some of the world’s top DJs. To be close to these venues, you could book at Apart Hotel Tarsis Club, which is also a good choice for groups of friends on holiday. The hugely popular Sunny Beach and Action Aquapark are only about 5min away by car.
While Sofia and Sunny Beach offer a lot for families to do on holiday, they can be a bit too hectic for families with young children. A better alternative is the quieter town of Sinemorets, something of a best-kept secret among experienced family holidaymakers. Barely more than a village, it has excellent, serene beaches and is close to Strandzha Nature Park. Good family hotel options here are Hotel Eskada Beach or the Santa Maria Apartments.
