Hotel Rila Borovets
Ranked #6 of 29 Hotels in Borovets
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Stayed here twice now and I would definitely stay here again.
Good points: Perfect location, nice facilities, well priced, nice rooms
Bad points: Not a lot of variety in the food (cheap enough to eat out though).

Not happy one bit..

Went and stayed for a Ski trip for a week.

No way to change rooms and of the party we had 3 rooms, all had leaking doors and windows, black mould and wet floors from the door leaks. Not what I would expect from the best hotel in the area.

Service is ok and friendly and to be honest you spend 90% of the time out of the rooms and hotel, however after a day of skiing you need a good night warm bed to sleep in..

The club down stairs was a bit poor as well. The entertainment outside of this place is better.

Would not stay in this hotel again.

Perfect location. Nice food and pool. It is definitely one of the best choices in Borovetz. We liked the organization of the new year Eve. There are many good restaurants around and the ski run ends literally in front of the hotel. The night ski run is roght in front of the hotel!

Stayed: December 2013, travelled with friends

we stayed here because of the location and it wasn't expensive! It was good as just a base but in my opinion the food wasn't good but I am fairly picky so might just be me, the rooms were nice and comfortable though.

Large hotel, definately not a 4* by british standards, comparable to travel lodge / premier inn.
Well worn interior, shabby rooms.
Limited buffet food but cheap enough to eat out elsewhere in town
Excellent position for skiing, right on the slopes, generally ok value for money.

This hotel has everything it needs for ski focused couples, families and solo travellers!
We stayed on 6tb floor with mountain/slope view which was super exciting watching the skiers race down the steep red...
The staff were not rude but they were not fake smiling either ...
The food was ok - breakfast was the best food of the day I think.

The pool area was nice, clean and felt quite safe...

Great hotel
I would recommend for its brilliant location and excellent value.
It's not a luxury hotel at all ... It's like a holiday inn express ... At the bottom of ski lift

Room Tip: Ask for room above 5th floor with slope view ... N get ear plugs lol because the black tiger bar par...
