Stayed in Rila Studio in Dec 2012, it has the best location in Borovets, however overall the hotel is a little tired, our room had second to none views of the slopes, being able to see night skiing and the pisteing machines. Food in the hotel was typical of Bulgarian hotel food, lots of it, some challenging combinations, and a... More

Just got back from Budapest which I love. The Hotel Rila is pretty simple and basic (and, in spite of what its website says, it still doesn't have a bar) but for the price and helpful staff I reccommend it - it is the second time I have stayed there. Prices in Budapest have gone up as far as cigarettes... More

Over our three night stay in Rila we found the reception staff to be very approachable and helpful. The restaurant outside is small and simple but serves good food and cheap too - nice if you fancy trying some Hungarian food... The metro station is a five minute walk which makes getting into town easy - with only four stops... More

This was my second ten-day stay in the Hotel Rila in three years, and I would certainly go back again. Its location, amenities and rates make it a great value! The staff is friendly, efficient and helpful. The room and bath are extremely clean and comfortable, while the breakfast buffet of cereals, yogurts, bread/rolls with toppings, meat, cheese and beverages... More

Stayed at the hotel for three nights which is located just outside Budapest downtown and just 4-5 metro stops to Pest part of the city. The hotel has it's own parking lot which is locked, so you can rest assure your car is safe. The neighborhood is nothing great, but if you're staying here, you're not expecting that. You need...

The location of the hostel is great, just a couple of subway stops away from the center of the city. Service was great, the staff was very nice and polite. Rooms were small but tidy, the bathroom was clean. The bed wasn't that comfortable, it was like made of stones. Free internet in the lobby was useful! We didn't take... More
