“Old world Bulgarian charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2012

Really liked this tiny Hotel in the mountain village of Bansko, in the old part of the town. Excellent value for money.
We had a room in the very old part of the building, just at the top of the stairs, a very pretty room, quite large with wooden beams and a small window overlooking the rooftops and the mountains.
The bed linen was very pretty, crisp white linen - lovely. The bathroom adequate with a shower - no bath .
All very clean and the wifi in the room was excellent.
The breakfast was extra, 3 leba per person, ( about 1.50 euros). Very good with a wide selection of goodies - the jams etc. all homemade.
Mika was the lady who looked after us and she was very welcoming and we were made to feel at home.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this Hotel.

Hey, let me tell you what a great little town is Bansko... If u plan a ski vacatiaon that's the place.... wonderful and fun all the time..... I spent over a week there last winter, stayed in THE OLD HOUSE 1980 through the whole time... My vacation was even more awesome, just because The OLD HOUSE is lockated right in the centrum of the town, where all the taverns, discos and the sight seeings are... On the top of everything the hosts were so nice that they drove me to the Gondola ski lift every single day, and that saved me 10 min walking. I had a wonderful time there also because the two girls who are hosts and owners of that place took care of me. They were bringing me out with them to different places with theyrs friends and other tourists... It was great. I had the chance to explore the place not being just a regular tourist, but kinda guest visiting friends....
THANK YOU, my HOSTS. I'm Looking forward to see you this winter again... Will comfirm my reservation soon...

The room was really clean and comfortable.
The guest house is right at the centre of the town, where all the taverns and discos are. And the owner was giving me a ride to the Gondola lift every day, although its a 10 minute walking distance.
