Hi folks, we are off to sofia for the new year..28th december to the 3rd january, hotel all booked and so is the venue for the new year. We did have troube booking the venue as they dont like contacting the uk, even though they said they would withing 24 hours, we had to keep ringing back until eventually the boss answerd and agreed he would trust us to book with no deposit, and to pay by the 29th which we obviously would and will. Staying at the Beseda hotel for a week..might see some of you folks around.
Has anyone else had trouble booking a table in a restaurant from the uk, as we dont have relatives in sofia to do it for us, our property is in Pomorie which we canniot visit this time, will have to wait until the summer..shame, but we didnt buy any logs this year.

Why didn't you use a web based booking site for the hotel, it's a lot easier.

i did use web base for booking ( booking .com ) the Hotel, the problem was trying to book a restaurant. All the ones we fancied, had an applicatuion form, along with the usual visa accepted ads, but at the end of the booking form it stated that someone will be in touch within 24 hours, which they did not ( too expensive i suppose ) so we had to keep contacting them as the staff couldnt authorise a booking or take a deposit, in the end we managed to speak to a boss, who trusted us, and said we are booked, but must call in to pay by the 29th, so we are arriving on the 28th so will visit next day.
