We came here for the Salsa Balkan Congress, so we weren't the typical ski- or summer tourists. But because of that, prices were really low. Rooms were big and clean. Staff was always nice. They have a pool and 2 whirlpools and a sauna but I think you have to pay extra for that one. They had a pretty big... More

The famous Rilla. Situated in a great location for skiing - directly opposite the main nursery slope and ski lift. Also not far from the gondala to the next range. The decor seems to be largely dated, but the location makes up for it. The hotel has always been well equipped, with numerous facilities including sauna and swimming pool. I... More

This is a very famous hotel situated right at the bottom of the ski slopes. In the summer though it is a pleasant refuge from the hot and sticky days by the sea coast. The hotel itself despite that it's outdated is very well taken care of. The rooms, the restaurant and all common areas were spotlessly clean, stuff was... More

We booked a package tour for a family skiing trip and opted for the Hotel Rila having read the reviews of most of the hotels in the resort. The first thing that struck me was the location - the Rila literally sits at the base of the main slope and a (short) stones throw from the ski depot and with... More

For Borovets, this is a perfectly reasonable hotel though a bit expensive. Room: 3 star on international levels - clean, does the job. Same quality as the Flora and Moura hotels. Location: Perfect, couldn't get a better location. Food: In terms of international standards the food could be hotter and there could be a greater variety. However compared to the... More

Don't get me wrong the hotel is far from perfect.... Hotel rooms are basic, but i only used it for somewhere to lay my head and get a hot shower after a days snowboarding. The hotel lobby is perfect for me, best wi-if in the whole resort, perfect to relax on the sofas, huge bar although staff could crack a... More

I am just reading the reviews after being there in Feb 2014 skiing looking at going again next February 2015. The reviews don't seem to do the hotel justice. I have been skiing in France before and Last season was my first time in borovets with our two children of 13 & 10. The hotel was spot on. It was... More

Stayed here twice now and I would definitely stay here again. Good points: Perfect location, nice facilities, well priced, nice rooms Bad points: Not a lot of variety in the food (cheap enough to eat out though).

Not happy one bit.. Went and stayed for a Ski trip for a week. No way to change rooms and of the party we had 3 rooms, all had leaking doors and windows, black mould and wet floors from the door leaks. Not what I would expect from the best hotel in the area. Service is ok and friendly and... More

Perfect location. Nice food and pool. It is definitely one of the best choices in Borovetz. We liked the organization of the new year Eve. There are many good restaurants around and the ski run ends literally in front of the hotel. The night ski run is roght in front of the hotel!
