Reviewed 22 March 2014

We shared a room with a friend and there was one bedroom and a sofa bed. The rooms were spacious and warm and we could get wifi in the room (not only at the reception). The sofa bed was uncomfortable and the food was horrible. We were half board. Breakfast every day was less than average and the eggs were warm (not hot) and the boiled eggs over cooked. We resorted to fresh fruit (you had to be there very early to get a banana or kiwi fruit) which was mainly apple, orange and grapefruit. Dinner was just as bad and they did not even serve water or tea/coffee with the food (you had to pay if you wanted any sort of drink). The food was unappetising and cold, although it's fair to say if you want something hot in Bulgaria you should ask for it extra hot if not it comes luke warm. I would suggest if you stay here you go self catering as there are plenty of good, reasonable restaurants around. The hotel also did not have a boot room it was not possible to change easily into your ski boots before going out.

Stayed for 1 week skiing in the Feb half term. Took the half board option as never stayed in Bulgaria before. The food was scrummy, not a massive selection but there was something different every night and cooked very well. Breakfast was a great selection. My boyfriend didn't appreciate the coffee but he is used to freshly brewed filter coffee and not machine coffee :-)

The apartment was lovely, very clean and quite modern. There was a small kitchen area with quite a large fridge. Plenty of storage space in the lounge and very comfortable sofas. There was a stereo system with a selection of CD's and a TV with DVD player, we were very impressed. There was even a book swap shelf in the apartment which I took advantage of. The apartment had free wifi service too...

The staff were very friendly and the apartment was cleaned every day and always looked spotless, they even did the washing up for us!

The hotel was brilliantly located in the centre of the town close to all of the slopes and the gondola station.

I can't actually fault the place, if I was to say something negative it would be that the swimming pool was cold, it is indoors but not heated but that's the only fault and its nothing to detract from our overall stay!

The Flora Hotel was warm , comfortable and friendly.
Our suite was spacious and clean.
The breakfast buffet was very good with plenty to choose from , where as the evening meal was not up to much, to the point that we ate out most night's.
The prices in the local restaurants were very reasonable.
We are booking again for next year .

Went here in half term with my 16 year old daughter, booked with Crystal, flew with Thompson, flight was good, transfer slow but ok.
What can I say about the Hotel, it's Bulgaria and Skiing so as expected, food was one up from awful but you could find something on the basic buffet, the pool was included and was ok, but all other leisure facilities were extra. We ate out a lot even though we were half board, the bars and restraints are good value and the food good!
The room was fine, small, basic but normal for a ski resort, service was lacking but ok, must be a local mannerism!
Borovets has a seedy element ie gentleman's clubs which was a concern pre visit with a teenager in tow, but to be honest the whole resort was fun and friendly, not threatening at all and it wasn't an issue.
There was hard key any snow when we went but we went night skiing most nights which was great.
On the whole, Borovets gets a thumbs up from me on value but worth checking the snow report, Flora Hotel was very average, the Solana looked nice, but for skiing it was fine.

Stayed at Flora for a change thinking due to higher price , it would be superior to Rila hotel. What a mistake !!!. Initially given rooms in the old part (annex) the rooms are so small and the beds are only 2ft 6" wide my feet stuch out the end and im only 5ft 10". Immeditly complained to reception ,where I was asked to wait untill morning. I then asked to speak with my rep , at which they changed us to a bigger room in modern part of hotel ,which is fine. It has no purpose built restaurant , you eat in what is suppusedly the irish pub (in name only).
The evening meal is served only 6pm -8pm however be sure to be in by 7.15 ensure you get the full choice. Last night the Veal was like leather and chips like balster wood- just not good enough !
No communial area around to eat and drink other than the irish pub restaurant which has no windows,
It cost 3levs to use the sauna steam room , casino is one arm bandits,
Stay clear of this place. No atmosphere, poor food and terrible room size in old part of the hotel , Rila Rila Rila so much better.

Room Tip: Main building only ,if you really must stay.

I have stayed here for the past two years during skii season, the rooms are basic but clean and well maintained, the beds are very narrow, one could easily fall out, more suitable for children than adults, the hotel is a 5-7 minute from the skii slopes, on both occassions we were half board, breakfasts were ok but dinner is a little drab and disapointing. Borrovets itself has a high number of eateries which are great value for money.
