We were wary of going to this hotel given the poor reviews on trip advisor. However we should have not been concerned. The hotel was warm. The food we supplied was edible despite previous reviews, I'm a fussy eater but even I found something every day that I could eat which is rare for me ! . The staff were...

When arriving at this hotel the first thing we noticed when entering the room was the smell , it was disgusting. When we approached reception we were told no more rooms were available but they would send the maid to clean the room, yes the maid arrived only to pour chemicals down the sink in the bathroom, down the toilet...

The Location is perfect, the room a good size BUT the bath wasn't sealed and came away from the wall so there was water everywhere in the shower, the drains blocked frequently causing a disgusting smell. We did report this, they came up straight away and said it was fixed but it wasn't . The one thing I will say...

Stayed here for 4 nights. On the positive side the room was warm, the swimming pool was great with additional charge but cheap extra options in the spa. The pool room and bar was great to pass some time, drinks as cheap as local bars. There is a bowling alley slot games etc. There is a supermarket and 2 ski...

Nice big hotel, ideal for groups etc.... Wouldn't advise for families due to the noise and general condition of the hotel. It's a shame the owners have let it deteriorate as it has the potential to be great, the spa for example is a nice touch and would be great all be it for slippery smooth tiles! It has various...

An amazing picturesque little town of Borovets, amids dense forest and geenery covered in snow most year round! Huge hotel within a few meters from the gondola that takes you to the 1st half of the ski resort. Close to all amenities and within 5 minutes walk from the other main Hotel Rila and the 2nd part of the ski...

Just back from a week in the Samokov, with my son Paul. Hotel was very reasonably priced, room more than adequate and food very good. Hotel quite well placed for access to main gondola lift, with ski hire in the basement. Staff quite friendly if a little dour, but efficient. Had a couple of 'quad' massages due to hopeless lack...

It's not the worst hotel I've ever stayed in and it's far from the best but at the price it really is excellent value. The rooms are clean there was plenty of hot water, they've replaced the 14" portable TVs which could only get a fuzzy B&W picture with larger flat screen models withe couple of English channels since last...

Great food, fab accomodation which was always clean and warm. Wifi in the room on the 7th floor. Very quiet in the evenings. 4 min walk to the Gondola. Tips: avoid Gondala between 0930 and 1400 as the ques are 45 min long. However if you have an all day pass you can enter via the left side and que...
