Trip Report Bulgaria - Rila Monastery, Sofia, and a few restaurants

Jump to last reply

I just returned from a short trip to Bulgaria on business. Before I left I posted here, and searched the boards, looking for a bit of info. There wasn't much, and I promised a few posters that I would post my experiences.

This really isn't a full-fledged trip report as it was a business trip, but hopefully there will be a few helpful points.

Travel Information:

United Airlines, KC-DC-Munich-Sofia Outbound, Sofia-Munich-Chicago-KC return. Nothing outstanding to report, a reasonable ticket of $1069 roundtrip.

The only thing to note is that there aren't many flights out of Sofia, and they seemed to run late. Munich is not a small airport, and a group of us barely made the connection. I do admit to being surprised that Lufthansa from Munich to DC did not have seatback videos at every seat. I thought every international flight had those these days!

Lodging: Holiday Inn Sofia 100 Euros, including breakfast, exclusive of VAT and city tax.

Our meeting was here, thus the choice of hotel. It is in the Business Park Sofia, so while convenient for business, you need to have a car or use taxis to go to the city center.

The hotel is quite nice, however, with a very nice pool and spa, restaurant and bar. The buffet breakfast was substantial, so if you can get a rate with breakfast included it is a good deal. The staff was outstanding. Shuttle service from airport 10 euros.
