We stayed at the Chamkoria as two couples. Our flight out was delayed some hours. When we arrived we were met by friendly staff and given a handmade wristband. We were told if we see a stork, we were to tie it to a tree and make a wish, Bulgarian tradition apparently. Dinner had been kept in our rooms as... More

Nice choice for the value of your money. I was there before few months and i'm definitely satisfied. Not too distant from the downtown and the lifts. It's quiet place with very beautiful view. Plenty of space for parking. The rooms are tidy and clean. The restaurant food was good, varied menu and tasty dishes. I have also tried the... More

I must admit that the hotel is approx is far away from the gondola lift however you can easily book a taxi it will only take 5 min to get to the centre plus they have a free shuttle bus (works till 1700hrs). It's a clean and modern hotel but far away.

We booked to stay in the festa chamkoria with Neilson holidays as it seemed to offer a good level of luxury, not right on top of the nightlife, but within a short walk of the ski lifts. Sadly this wasn't true in all cases. The hotel was ok - nothing spectacular, and yes it definitely wasn't on top of the... More

The hotel itself is very smart and clean. Our room was fine, pretty big with a decent sized bathroom. The shuttle service to the slopes worked really well, if it was full they just came back and got the people who didn't fit. The hotel is indeed a fair way from the slopes and the centre of town, a taxi... More

Rooms are tiny - even the biggest "One bedroom suite" is under 30sq.m.; Bathroom is 3sq.m., unusable. Service - what service? understaffed, under qualified, not trained....
