I stayed in Hotel Avalon for four nights in July with my girlfriend. We were advised not to go to Bansko out of ski season but we learnt that this is a Sofia prejudice: we actually loved Bansko, yes it has become over-commercialised by the ski industry but the old town is still charming and it's definitely worth a visit any time. James and Vanya are extremely nice and very helpful. James helped us organise a day hiking and climbing in the Pirin mountains with a very nice Welsh guide; a day mountain biking along trails that he marked out himself; a visit to the hot mineral baths nearby; and so on. He and Vanya also recommended various local restaurants including one (I forget the name) which was hilariously over the top, my girlfriend was serenaded by a live band which was incredibly funny and the food was great! The hotel is good too, the rooms are very clean, there are lockable safes, there is free WIFI, etc. The only downside was that our room didn't have air con, but it wasn't a problem. Look nowhere else in Bansko.
