Marking the brand’s debut in Bulgaria but seventh opening in Eastern Europe, the hotel features 194 rooms, including 27 Club rooms and 37 Suites.
Drawing inspiration from the surrounding city and its vibrant history, every touchpoint of the hotel’s interior is designed to deliver exceptional comfort while embodying the unique spirit of Sofia. From the statue of a girl blowing a dandelion that signifies hope and unity in the lobby, through to the rooms that mimic architectural influences of the 1960s, the design of the hotel truly signifies the unique spirit of Sofia throughout.
Narodno Sabranie Square is the birth place of hope for Bulgarians – uniting the nation to overcome hardships and celebrate victories. This energy is incorporated in the lobby with the statue of the girl blowing a dandelion. The artwork signifies our belief that one small act can bring together like-minded people and cause a future to be shaped for the better. This captivating notion has its culmination with the fireplace at the end of the dandelion’s path. The symbolism is also manifested in our bar and lounge concept. The name Floret is the term for an individual flower that makes up the complete dandelion. The menu is also inspired by the destination – using local ingredients in a creative manner. Our main goal is to connect people and create extraordinary experiences and memorable moments. The entire ground floor concept was created by IDEA – a Bulgarian company.
The marble flooring of the area is designed by the London-based designer Francis Sultana. The chevron pattern of the marble is incorporated in the InterContinental Club Lounge interior and the design of Floret Social Bar & Lounge. On the mezzanine level, Sultana’s passion for Art Deco is manifested in the railing of the staircase and the entire bar area.
