Welcome in Sofia!
Located a 20 minutes’ drive from the ski slopes of Vitosha, 15 minutes from the International Airport of Sofia and a 10 minutes’ walk from the town center, the Kempinski Hotel Zografski stands in the highest place of the town, within the residential area. The building distinguishes itself with its 19 levels overlooking the area. It has been designed by the renowned Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa, author of world landmarks such as the National Art Center in Tokyo (Japan), Astana International Airport in Kazakhstan, Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia, the new wing of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam (Netherlands), Pacific Tower in Paris (France), Republic Plaza in Singapore, Zenit Stadium in St Petersburg (Russia).
The hotel happens to be a 3,000 sqm (32,300 sqft) city inside the city. The property houses a luxury Japanese garden, unique of this kind in the Balkan Peninsula. It had been inspired by the 400-years-old Japanese garden at Hotel New Otani in Tokyo. The result offers a peaceful oasis. Here and more specifically during springtime, Japanese cherry trees, magnolias, azaleas, lilies and murmuring fountains offer some magic. Within this Eden, the whole built in wood Japanese restaurant is a famous place to dine in the capital. The setting is ideal for memorable weddings.
The Kempinski Hotel Zografski also broads 5 others restaurants and 2 bars. Here you can enjoy Italian, Bulgarian or Japanese cuisine. The most famous might be the Panorama restaurant overlooking Sofia.
The Kempinski Sofia has 442 rooms and suites. Some of them offer breathless views over the city and the mountains. In a subtle mix of modernity and tradition, they bring comfort to the hosts.
For relax, one of the most modern fitness centers of Europe, a spa, an impressive indoor swimming pool and a solarium.
