Just back from a week at hotel rila (stayed 17th to 24th Jan 2015). Good points about this hotel: Location - two lifts right outside the hotel (for green and blue runs) and right in the middle of all the bars and restaurants. However if you are a more advanced skier and want to do all the red runs then... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel rila for our week ski holiday in Borovets. We chose it for the location and what a cracking choice it was, it is literally at the foot of the floodlit slopes and you walk out onto the slopes and can be on the lift in minutes! This is the plus side, the... More

Last year we stayed in the Lion Hotel in Borovets and decided to change to the Rila this year for the convenience of being close to the slopes and bars, despite expecting a worse standard of accommodation. However we were very pleased with the hotel. We were in a large, bright airy room which faced straight on to the slopes... More

There are numerous eating establishments in the Borovets several of which we tried then one afternoon we decided to go into the Rila Hotel. This is right at the bottom of the slopes and is absolutely huge. Every single room has a balcony. They have a... More

Best location in resort. Studio rooms nice size. Wouldn't say furnished to 4 star though (more like 3 star). Large busy hotel with many good facilities and staff were friendly enough - it was other guests (non British) that were very inconsiderate when waiting for lifts etc.! Pool is lovely as are 2 large hot tubs. Ski depot in basement... More

The hotel is in the center of the ski resort. The hotel has many shops and we liked the kindergarten where we kept our 4 year old who enjoyed it a lot. The hotel is very good for families with small kids where the kids can run around and have things to do. The food is very basic and despite... More

I had read a lot of bad reviews about this hotel previous to going away but i have had a great time away and the hotel was absolutely fine. Location is the best in the resort, highly recommended for beginner skiers. Lots of bars/restaurants right outside. I never had a problem with any of the food at the hotel, there... More
