St. Ivan Rilski - Hotel, SPA & Apartments
Ranked #16 of 95 Hotels in Bansko
Reviewed 3 March 2013

It is a nice hotel out of the center of Bansko, not to far, not too close. It is in 10 min walking distance. Everyday organised shuttle bus to and from the gondola. Nice food and spa. Studios are really spacious and the rooms are kept clean every day.

Just returned from this hotel, & what a lovely experience big rooms, clean & very warm. Hotel spa good value for money reception/lobby/bar all very comfortable drinks & food very reasonable. We stayed half board food very nice & enough choice. Gondola lift bit of a nightmare but we were there within kids school holidays so expected it to be busy, We luckily booked through Balkan holidays & bought lift pass/ski hire & lesson package which gives you access to vip lift queue, the most we queued was only 10/15 mins, once your up on the mountain lifts & skiing was fantastic. Would definately return.

We rented one of the apartments here and our experience was great. Very helpful and warm staff. The apartment is extremely spacious and maintained to the highest standards. The quality of construction is good. It was cleaned everyday and towels/sheets changed. The restaurants and bars in the hotel offers very good food at a reasonable price. The gondola is around 10 min walk from here and taxi to the town costs 10 Lev. We would certainly book this hotel if we visit Bansko again.

I was suprised in a positive way what this hotel offers. Large rooms, clean, comfort, excellent spa facilities, and ot to forget food.
Girls who works in children's club are very polite and friendly....
The only negative thing was wi-fi that doesn't work inside the rooms.but if you really need internet you can go to loby or downstairs the hotel and find internet......

I woud recomand to everyone this hotel

The hotel is situated in a peaceful place, only 10 minutes walk to the gondola.
Large fully equipped rooms, very warm and cleaned every day. They even change the sheets and towels every day.
They have excellent large lobby bar, and the food in the restaurant is very good and various.
The pool is large, clean with warm water.
The car is secured, parked at underground parking.
The staff is very polite, so what else do you need? :)
Definitely a hotel to visit.

Nice hotel. Very warm. Nice and friendly staff. Good SPA facilities, although a swatter in the pool should be a bit warmer. Rooms spacious enough. Do not rent ski equipment and instructor in the shop on the entrance of the hotel garage, because it is a rip off and it is not a hotel service. It is independent shop. Hotel management should not rent their shops to crooks.

We visited this hotel teh last year, during Christmas holidays.
Our impression of all hotel's facilities and services was satisfactory, apart of the staff of front desk, who they were let say "cold".
Nevertheless, we decided to visit again Bansko and we booked two rooms in the same hotel.
Our impressions are the same or worse.
Staff of front desk = COLDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Price for new year galla dineer = 80 euro / person and the food was disaster!!!!
Cleanless of room poor up to acceptable.
Parking of the car only on the main road.
We arrived at 15.00pm and our room was occupied!!!! We were waiting about 45 min, in order the room to be emptied and cleaned.

Exception was the staff and the food of Mehana restaurant.

Probably all these was due to excessive ammount of customers.
However, a 4 stars hotel must manage such situations.
