From the airport:
Take the bus number 84 to the last stop (25-30 min). Do not forget to buy and punch a ticket in the bus, because most probably you will be checked by a conductor few minutes after the bus starts (one ticket for you and one for your rucksack if it is larger than 60x40x40sm). When you get off you will have to walk about 10min along "Vasil Levski" Blvd., passing by the "Patriarch Evtimiy" monument and again following the street of the same name you will reach Sofia Guesthouse on the left side of the boulevard (see the map).
Another option is to take a taxi from the airport. It will cost about 7-10 leva (3,5-5 Euro) depending on the traffic in the center.
If you wish you could order pick up service from STIC at the price of 5 Euro/pax.
From the central train station & the central bus station:
The two stations are located at a distance of just 150m from each other. So the ways of transportation to Sofia Guesthouse by public transport or taxi are all the same.
Walking it takes about an hour to get to Sofia Guesthouse (see the map): walk along "Maria Louisa" Blvd., then cross the bridge of "Slivnitsa" Blvd. and continue towards the mosque, located further on "Maria Louisa" Blvd. Reaching the mosque you will see "Sveta Nedelya" church (with green domes). Just in front of the Court House (on the right side some 100 m after the church) turn left and walk along the tram railway along "Alabin" Str. and "Graf Ignatiev" Str., passing through the open-air books market at "Slavejkov" square. Reaching the monument of Patriarch Evtimiy 250m after the square, turn right and following the street of the same name you will find Sofia Guesthouse on the left side just 350m after the monument.
Free pick up services are available upon request from both stations.
Using public transport you could get to Sofia Guesthouse by tram number 12. It passes along the same boulevards and streets mentioned in the walking version above. You have to get off on "Patriarch Evtimiy" station (for description of how to get to Sofia Guesthouse from this point see the map or the text above). Again do not forget to buy and punch a ticket or two (one for you and one for your rucksack if it is larger than 60x40x40sm). Pay attention for your wallet in the tram as the segment between the central train/bus stations and "Patriarch Evtimiy" station is favourite place of many pickpockets in Sofia.
