Long-standing tradition for top quality today

Designed by the legendary Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa, hotel Marinela is one of Sofia’s landmark buildings. Towering amidst the greenest part of Sofia, Marinela offers a panorama for you to enjoy both the lights of Sofia by night and the splendour of the nearby mountain Vitosha. The interior is a subtle combination of tradition and cosiness with innovative and modern design. With a gross floor space of 30 000 square meters, the hotel offers 442 rooms and apartments, including the largest Presidential suite in Bulgaria. All this means that the 5* Marinela can satisfy even the most demanding preferences and requirements.
Marinela has the largest conference hall in Bulgaria, 13 meeting rooms, the largest ballroom, conference rooms with natural light and a hall at the top floor which puts Sofia on the palm of your hand.
The design of the Japanese Garden draws from the 400-year old Japanese garden at the New Otani in Tokyo. In the restfulness of its shadows guests can enjoy, among other things, a huge biodiversity of flora and fauna species.
