We have just returned from a weeks stay at Hotel Samokov and were very happy with this hotel. It is very well located in Borovets, just minutes away from the gondola and centre of town. We had read poor reviews so were slightly apprehensive about the hotel but were overall very happy. Our room was large and clean with fridge which we didn't expect. We didn't have much to do with the hotel staff but what we did was fine. We stayed bed and breakfast as we like to try different places for dinner and the breakfast was plentiful and served from 8-10am. We ate early daily (some days we were in the restaurant by 7.45am and food was all ready), a wide selection of food is available and as a vegetarian and a meat eater we were able to both find something to eat.
We used the free pool several times and this is in need of work although perfectly fine for a quick swim but is rather cool! We also used the Jacuzzi for 30 minutes costing about £2.50 each. I also had a spa treatment for less than £30 which included use of the thermal area and a full hour massage- recommended.
We also loved the pancakes available in the lobby in the afternoon for less than £1 which are prepared in front of you.
On the negative side the shower/bath was not properly sealed so leaked every time it was used, the sheet on the large bed was far too small so moved straight away and was very annoying and the lifts were awful- they often when up before taking you down and on one occasion took us from our floor to reception, refused to open then went back again- we got out and used a different one.
Overall we were very happy with our selection of Hotel Samokov for our holiday in Borovets- yes it could do with updating but it served its purpose for our stay and was a bargain as well.
