Apartments are an average size for two people. We booked for 4, 2 adults and 2 children. The children’s bed turned out to be a sofa bed with a mattress no thicker than an inch that neither of them would sleep on. So we all had to squash into a small double bed. Not ideal for anyone. The apartments only accommodate for 2 people so only 2 plates etc so to eat in we had to share or take turns washing up in between. There is not anywhere to hang wet clothing, not even any hooks apart from 2 for towels on the bathroom door. There is no safe for any belongings to be kept secure. The bathroom drains often smell very badly on a daily basis. The pool is heated but feels pretty cold and is one depth all over, far too deep for my young kids to play in without clinging onto myself and my wife the entire time. The hotel itself is clean and staff are friendly and helpful. The bus drivers to and from the hotel don’t speak any English and aren’t particularly helpful and are often flippant about timings. Overall I think the place could do with an update with some thought into the needs of the guests.

Response from Chamkoria Chalets, General Manager at Chamkoria Chalets
Responded 29 Oct 2020
Sorry to hear that you did not think the apartment was big enough for you. You booked a 1 bedroom apartment which is one of the smallest apartments we have and is generally for 2 people but can sleep up to 4 people if you want to use a sofa-bed. You could have booked any of our bigger apartments (2 bedroom, 3 bedroom or 4 bedroom) but they are more expensive of course. The pool is heated to the recommended temperature of 29-30 degrees and is regulated by a thermostat. Kids must be supervised at all times in the pool area. Our shuttle bus drivers have a basic level of English but unfortunately it can be very difficult to find drivers in the area with a good command of the English language. These apartments are all privately owned and are decorated & furnished according to owner's tastes so each apartment varies a little. If you book with us directly and let us know if you have any specific requirements for an apartment we would be happy to help and offer you the most suitable apartment or chalet for your stay.

We visited as a family of 6 adults having booked our three bed, two bathroom apartment via AirBnB. The complex is around 5km from the centre of Borovets set in stunning countryside with views of the mountains on a clear day. We skied for 4 out of our 5 day/ 6 night stay and the free shuttle buses were punctual and easy to book. We only had to take a taxi (30 lev/£15 for 6 people) on three occasions - twice because we left it late too late to book and once after being out for NYE. The apartment was warm and comfortable, very well equipped and very clean. We had an unexpected change of bedding and fresh towels half way through our stay too which was nice. The shop has the basics (bread, butter, wine, beer, soft drinks, salty snacks, chocolate, dried pasta, eggs and some tinned stuff etc) and we had breakfast in the complex one day, which was ok for the price. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. Whilst we were there we emailed our host to let him know the toaster wasn’t working (honestly because we didn’t want him to think we were responsible) but to our surprise he arranged for the management of the complex to provide us with a replacement the next day. We paid around £100 each for 6 nights which was amazing value for money in our opinion, and would definitely stay again. In fact, we’re already planning our return to Borovets for Jan 2021!

Chamkoria Chalets gets the basics right. Good quality flats, well equipped with WiFi and modern facilities. A sauna, perfect for after skiing. Free shuttles to Borovets. Beyond the basics, you’re spinning the wheel of fortune. Sometimes, this place runs like clockwork. At other times, the odds aren’t quite in your favour. For example: do the gods of safe and convenient minibuses smile upon you today? Or will you have to wait forty minutes for the next shuttle home from the slopes? And, once you’ve hauled your snowy, soggy carcass on board, will you be hurled about the icy backroad to the chalet? Will you nearly leave that backroad if your driver happens to be more interested in texting than in where he’s going? Similarly, if you’ve hired a car or are taking a taxi (30 Levs one way for 6 people - very reasonable), will the journey take 15 minutes? Or will the road be an unploughed snowy death trap? (This isn’t necessarily the fault of the Chalet - but worth bearing in mind if you dare travel without snow chains.) It would also be nice to be able to use the spa facilities before midday or after 7.30pm. And bear in mind you can’t easily check out until the reception is staffed from 8am. This is a great place to stay, reasonably priced. But gird your loins.

Booked a 3 bed apoartment and was not disappointed. Also arranged airport transfers with them as well as a welcome pack if food and drink. Very clean and well presented. Used the pool and sauna which was a nice addition. The free bus transfers to and from Borovets worked well. A 15 minute drive away but this was not a problem, a taxi back from Borovets after the free shuttle bus finished was 30lev or £15 which wasn't too bad. I would recommend staying here.

The chalet had magnificent views with just a short journey away from Borovets, however when issues arose such as no hot water in the main bathroom, broken heater in a bedroom and lack of bus service, the staff were uninterested to address the problems and rude. Also the restaurant offered a limited pizza or pasta (cold) menu on a few nights without warning due to being booked out to a private group. Unfortunately as we were not notified about this there was no bus service to take us into the town for alternative eating venues, so had to pay for two taxis due to the group size. Upon checking out we were also told we had to pay tourist tax of which we had not been informed about. To end on a positive note the chalet was clean, well equipped and with good facilities i.e. pool/sauna.
