“Great value and nice apartment”
Reviewed 13 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We had a lovely week here. The apartment is nicely laid out, clean and nice and warm. The two bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and I would say it would be perfect for a party of up to 5 friends, or a family. It was excellent value.

Facilities
There is one very nice bathroom, although the shower is powered by a boiler which only holds enough hot water for 2 and a bit showers - a challenge when 6 people simultaneously get back from skiing! I think this would be fine for a smaller group, however.
The sauna was very nice, the steam room was not working when we were there. It costs 10 lev per hour, under £5 for the whole group. There are also additional showers here which eased our bathroom queue! There was a bit of a challenge booking these facilities as the building managers go home at 3.30. They also are very hard to communicate with - they are friendly and try to be helpful but we only managed to actually book the sauna once as they just didn't understand us when we tried a second time.
There is a great shared sitting and cooking area downstairs, which would be perfect for large groups.
The kitchen is small but was perfectly adequate for tea and porridge. It is equipped for 6 people, with a microwave, 2 electric hobs, kettle, toaster, sink and fridge.
The beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms had lots of storage space.
They'd also provided a drying rack which came in extremely handy.
The sofa bed would have been fine for one person, but had an unfortunate dip in the middle meaning that sharing it was a bit overly intimate!

Location
It is at least a 25 minute walk to the gondola and tourist centre, so further away than much of the available accomodation, however it is a pleasant walk and close to the actual town centre which has its own appeal and some nice restaurants and bars. As a town I can't fault Bansko, we had a great time both skiing and experiencing the local restaurants and bars. It has a great atmosphere and everyone was very friendly to us.
It is about a 2 hour drive from Sofia, we used a taxi firm recommended by the owner of the apartment and it was a smooth, pleasant and cheap transfer. I would recommend doing this as I think the apartment would be hard to find if you were not dropped by a taxi company who knew where it was!

Management
I found the owner of the apartment very helpful, he always answered emails promptly and assisted with taxi companies and recommendations. The 2 people who run the apartments were very friendly although they are hard to communicate with.

Overall we had a great week and I would recommend. I would probably limit adult group size to 5 for comfort, as I think our 6 was a bit cramped. It was excellent value.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such an extensive review. I'm sure this information will be very valuable for anybody considering the apartment. It is true the building manager's English isn't great but we've always managed to communicate with him effectively, and he is a real gent, so obliging.

Glad you enjoyed the apartment and your stay!

Glad the apartment was to your satisfaction and that you enjoyed your stay. As you say it is perfect for a small family as it is well equipped and in a quiet but central location. We've taken your comment on board about the bathroom and will be adding to it over the summer.

“A lovely apartment exactly as described”
Reviewed 28 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We were picked up from the airport by a taxi arranged by the owner who also gave us the keys to the property. When we arrived we were impressed by the property. It was exactly as described on the website and the staff on site were very friendly and welcoming. All the beds were very comfy and the property was very clean. We had a great time in the sauna and steam room which was well worth the 10 leva we paid for the three of us. Every morning we got a lift to the gondola station which saved our much needed energy for the day of skiing ahead. One slight issue was that it took us about 30 minutes to walk back from the gondola station. There was a cheap supermarket a 5 minute walk away from the apartment which was very convenient. Overall this was definitely worth the money and would highly recommend the property.

We are very happy that you enjoyed the apartment. We are very careful to advertise it exactly as it is and thank you for acknowledging this and for appreciating the quality of the apartment. Thanks also for your comments about our site staff, they do a great job and they receive so many compliments from guests for their friendliness and helpfulness. The flexible transport service provided from the building to the gondola by our site staff is also very much appreciated by our guests, we are glad you were pleased about it too. Looking forward to you returning next year!

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. It was exceptionally cold at that time in Bulgaria and our local property management company received widespread reports of cold properties across Bansko that week as it was so unusually cold. However we are glad that you decided to use the communal log fireplace, defintely makes for a very cozy night in! Thanks for complimenting the building staff, we are very lucky to have them and all the guests remark about their friendliness and helpfulness. Hopefully we'll see you next year if you come back to Bansko.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 17 August 2011 for a stay in February 2011

We had such a great time in Bansko! It's a great place and Gerard's apartment was excellent value for money! It is very clean, in fact it's as good as brand new! You are close to everything and there is a very helpful guy at front desk who will give you a ride to the lifts should you wish to. He has no real charge but we tipped him at the end of the week.

Gerard was great in helping us find ski schools, nice restaurants and places to see he even arranged transport to and from the airport for us.

All in all we had a great time and the accommodation was excellent value for money. Great for groups, families or couples! We will definitely be returning and wouldnt dream of staying anywhere else but Todorka Views.
