Would not recommend to anyone . We even had to lock and unlock main entrance when going out as reception not open owners seemed more interested in... More

Stayed here for a week in Feb 2016. The room was by the lift on the 3 floor so very noisy and could hear banging of doors till late in evening. The room itself was reasonably clean but very old and smelt of damp. The bathroom was leathal as the bath isnt fixed to the wall so the floor flooded... More

We booked this skiing trip with Neilsons and have a great week. The Hotel Samokov is in a good location, just over the road from the cable car and near all the slopes. Hotel staff friendly and helpful, rooms spacious and clean. Ski hire equipment average, but well organised. Hotel food plentiful, could normally find something you like, if not... More

We first arrived at another hotel and after a poor reception experience with our room being 'given' away we found rooms at the Samokov. Very helpful receptionist and concierge who showed us a few rooms before we committed to stay so a nice touch, it's a bit dated but functional and clean, perfect location to get out on the slopes...

Borovets is a great summer destination. Unlike this hotel. We've chosen it because of the big swimming pool and the parking amenities. Unfortunately, the rooms were dated (room doors are the worst) and dirty (empty alcohol bottle behind the couch, long dead insect on the carpet). The pool area is crowded, no information about amenities is given before entering. Keep... More

The hotel is well located to visit the slopes, and for a place to sleep you cannot complain. The beds were comfy and I managed a good nights sleep every night. Wifi patchy in the rooms, but available in the lobby on our floor easy enough. Nice view out the back towards the slopes from the balcony. The staff were... More

Came here in January for a week. The hotel itself is huge, however, by all means don't let that fool you. The hotel staff on reception were rude, blunt and quite unwelcoming. As we were a large group (7) they wanted to keep our passports for the week until we left, which I found odd. The rooms were spacious, and... More

This is one of the oldest hotels in Borovets resort in Bulgaria. Huge dark and empty lobby is the first thing you will notice. Second shock is reception desk with impolite receptionists. Than you get the elevator if you dare of course to use it , and finally when you enter at your room you are too tired and scared... More
