About Zarko Palankov
I was born and raised in Sofia, and currently live and work in Washington, DC. I rent out the apartment most of the year (except when I am home on vacation). My mom, Antoaneta, lives nearby and takes care of the property. She will check you in, and provide you with anything you need once you arrive in Sofia.
Zarko Palankov purchased this Apartment in 1956
Why Zarko Palankov chose Sofia
My grandparents built this apartment and lived there for close to 50 years. After they passed away, we entirely renovated the place and prefer to rent it out to travelers as we enjoy the interaction.

What a Wonderful Apartment
The apartment exceeded our expectations in almost every way. It is large, comfortable, well stocked with linens and cleaning products and close to the city center. There was also a great selection of channels on the TV. The grocery store about 1/4 mile away and there are bakeries and cafes just a block away. The landlord was easy to deal with too. We can recommend it without reservation.
Terrific Place to Stay in Sofia!
This was my second time staying at this rental apartment. It is a great neighborhood and is an easy walk to virtually everything in downtown Sofia. Within a ten minute walk there are dozens of very nice restaurants and the Billa is only about a 12 minute walk away. The apartment was clean, bright, and comfortable and has three air conditioners for the hot days. Being my second stay there, it felt quite a bit like a home away from home.
My correspondence with the owner and his mother who met us at the apartment and provided some maps and general area information was all great. Prompt and friendly. We fully expect to visit Sofia again in the next few years and hope to be able to stay here for a third time.
My only suggestion would be to find a way to darken the main bedroom a bit more at night and to provide an extra pad for the main bed.
All in all, we had a terrific stay!
Beautiful, clean, and perfectly located apartment. I highly recommend this location.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this apartment. It was beautiful, bright, spacious, comfortable, clean, safely located, and had everything one could possibly need. I stayed almost 3 months here and it was awesome. The kitchen is fully functional with a dishwasher (which was top notch). The washer/dryer worked great, the bed slept like a dream, and the bath tub was great for soaking after a long day. The apartment is located near the most beautiful and spacious park (Borisova Gradina) about a five minute walk. I also was able to walk to the metro easily, as well as shop for groceries and toiletries in The Billa and DM stores underneath the Sofia University Metro. The apartment is also walking distance to Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. As well, 2 minutes from the apartment is also bus 213 that takes you straight to Lion's Bridge area. The landlady was so nice and had the apartment professionally cleaned for me every 2 weeks. It was so nice to come home from a hard day working to a clean apartment. The tv has plenty of cable channels and there is also a landline that came in quite useful. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you for everything. I cannot wait to return to Sofia.
Very very nice place to stay
This was our first trip to Sofia, I wasn't too sure about the apartment in first place. Soon as we got there and saw the apartment, this was mind blowing place to stay in. Very newly decorated everything working nice and very clean. There is no words for me say but this is the place for me for my next visit. Thank you Zarko.
Quiet and clean apartment in central Sofia
The host Zarko was very helpful and responsive. The apartment has a great location: close to downtown, the subway, the largest park in Sofia, and at the same time it was very quiet! We had shops nearby, restaurants and anything you might need to feel at home. We did not cook, so I cannot comment on that. The apartment was very clean and safe. This would be our first choice when we go to Sofia again.
Wonderful apartment in Sofia!
This apartment was terrific. It is located in a nice area with a lot of restaurants, grocery stores and markets while still being quiet and relaxing. About a ten minute walk to Sofia University and about 15 to downtown. The apartment was very nicely appointed - a small but functional kitchen, a nice livingroom with a television with many English language stations, and good laundry facilities which allowed me to pack a bit lighter for my trip. Communication with the owners was easy and informative. I hope that this apartment will be available for my next visit to Sofia - I would rent it in a heartbeat.
Briar was an excellent guest! He was friendly, respectful, took great care of the apartment, communicated very well his itinerary and even left a wonderful gift. It was a pleasure hosting him and we would love to do so again in the future.
