This paper deals with applying elements of green management in accommodation facilities in the city of Sofia, Bulgaria. It analyses the implementation of green management elements and the principles of sustainable development in accommodation services. It focuses on accommodation facilities and
their use, and environmental measures. The primary survey was conducted from May until June 2018 and we used a questionnaire survey to obtain primary data. We used the methods of scientific work; and, i.e., the analysis method, a generalization method, mathematical, and statistical methods. A total of 96 accommodation facilities participated in this research and they reached the best results with sorting containers, dual flush toilets, compact fluorescent lamps, and LED lamps.
