Accommodation for the participants of SOFIMUN 2011

The SOFIMUN Foundation has tried during the years to offer its participants the ability to be in the centre of Sofia city, as close as possible to the National Palace of Culture (Le Palais de la Culture). We are delighted to announce that we have achieved a reasonable pricing (a bit higher than 2009) but a cost which enables the SOFIMUN Foundation to provide a better hotel (closer, more extras and more convenient for its participants) - the Hotel HEMUS.



Hotel complex HEMUS is situated in the center of Sofia city.

The distance between Hemus Hotel and the National Palace of Culture is easy to be taken on foot since it is almost 10 minutes (measured by a girl with high heels and a skirt).


Its location provides convenient transport connections to the administrative and trade center of the Bulgarian capital.


At the moment, the 2nd line of the Sofia metro infrastructure is being constructed, near Hotel Hemus and after its completion the Hemus Hotel will be a popular place for accommodating yourself. Hemus Hotel is one of the highest buildings in Sofia city.

Green and sustainable surrounding

The nearby park between the Mall CCS and the National Palace of Culture is and ideal place for jogging and pleasant walks.


Preferred by the citizens of Sofia city, the Juzhen Park is part of the eco-system of the city and called "one of the white lungs" of Sofia city.


It is the home of 65 types of birds who fly eventually over the Perlovska river which passes through the park.


Drinks and food

The Red Saloon Restaurant impresses with an elegant decor that finally does justice to a ‘first-class’ cooking. The well-spaced dining room feels more comfortable than ever. 120 seats, possibilities for changing the arrangement according the individual requirements, the perfectly placed next to the HEMUS conference hall, make the restaurant an ideal place for private or business luncheons or dinners, meetings or corporate events. The audio-visual equipment adds comfort for guests, who do not want to miss their favorite TV programs or do like the nice music. Air conditioning and Wi-Fi Internet connection contribute to guests' comfort.


Near the hotel there are numerous restaurants, cafes, pastry shops, candy shops, candy shops and places with summer gardens that offer wide variety of hot and refreshing beverages as well as quiet and pleasant ambience for a chat with friends.


The Japanese restaurant SASA has an exlcusive panorama view of half of Sofia city. The bamboo bijou SASA, located at the 18-th floor of the Hemus Hotel, is part of the Captain Cook’s Group restaurant chain. In translation, the name means bamboo leaf, which is a symbol of fertility and unity for the Japanese. The interior of the restaurant is designed in Zen-style – with wood, stones and traditional bonsai trees, which gives you a real flavor of Japan. However, the hieroglyphs on the walls and the ikebana arrangements on the tables, so common for other sushi bars, cannot be found here. The designers have chosen the minimalistic Scandinavian luxury and have not copied any Asian motives.
