This was our first visit to Bansko and the Hotel Lion was typical of other Bulgarian Hotels we have stayed in before at other ski resorts. We booked a late deal through Easyjet holidays so we expected a no frills holiday but was again pleasantly surprised. The rooms were warm, clean and modestly furnished. The pool was a little cold and jacuzzi even colder but we came for skiing not swimming. The food was fine, a choice of fish and two different meats each eve with plenty of veg and a separate salad bar. Im not a fussy eater and knew what to expect so overall I was happy. The staff were always happy to help and practised their English as often as possible. I changed my £ in the resort as you definitely get a better exchange rate than the UK. The skiing is limited with enough runs to keep you going for a week but no longer. The Cafes on the pistes are ok but prices vary wildly from 3lv-10lvs for a plate of chips, the same for a coffee. Overall a good value for money skiing holiday. We did Pamporovo 2013. Going to try Borovets next year.
