Long-awaited Hyatt Regency Sofia makes its debut
The 183-room Hyatt Regency Sofia is now open, marking Hyatt Hotels Corporation’s much-anticipated entrance into Bulgaria.
With the launch of its first Hyatt-branded hotel in Bulgaria, the Chicago-headquartered hospitality giant has reached an important milestone in the development of its presence in South-East Europe. We step inside this significant new property.
The perfect base for exploring Sofia
Hyatt Regency Sofia lies at the heart of the Bulgarian capital, within walking distance of Sofia’s tourist sites, on Vasil Levski Square.
This setting places guests within easy reach of landmarks such as the National Assembly, Vasil Levski Monument, the National Academy of Arts and the gold-domed St Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Fitting in with the ethos of the Hyatt Regency brand, the hotel is designed to offer productive and stress-free days through seamless and personalised experiences, with services and amenities including memorable culinary experiences, flexible workspaces and technology-enabled event facilities.
“We are thrilled to announce the opening of the very first Hyatt hotel in the beautiful city of Sofia,” said Laurent Schauder, general manager of Hyatt Regency Sofia. “The hotel’s central location is perfect for business and leisure travellers alike to enjoy this vibrant city, its vivid culture and rich history.”
Inside the lavish property
Each of Hyatt Regency Sofia’s 183 guestrooms, including 22 suites with terraces, comes with floor-to-ceiling windows, ample workspace and a well-appointed bathroom with walk-in rain shower. The Presidential Suite also offers private access, an elegant living room, a fully equipped kitchenette, a dining area and a panoramic terrace. Meanwhile, a stay in any suite or Regency Club room brings with it additional amenities such as evening drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
The culinary offering comprises the neighbourhood deli Mama Sofia, which showcases the best of Bulgaria’s products, The Revolutionary Dining Room and Bar offering modern Italian cuisine, and the rooftop bar and terrace, The Scene. These dining venues lie alongside 15,800 sq ft of event space, from the three rooftop spaces encompassed within The Loft to The Living Room and The Den, The Conservatory with rose garden, the 5,700 sq ft Vasil Levski Ballroom and the naturally lit Botev Hall.
