We stayed here from 3rd-9th of March but didn't know what to expect before we went due to reading previous reviews. We actually enquired about changing hotel but we are so glad we didn't. Previous reviews spoke about the rudeness of the staff but I must say we never encountered any of this throughout the whole week. Very efficient check... More

This hotel is just next to slopes and lifts. This is perfect, just pick your skis and you are right there. Hotel is old and definitely needs renovation/restoration. They need to bring in better TV sets, ex tube 36cm TV sets are quite outdated. There were no safe in the room. Despite mattresses were old and worn, they were not... More

Stayed here in March 2014 First ever skiing holiday and I am certain to return. the location is great at the foot of the nursery slopes and close to all the bars and noisy nightlife. The view from the front of the hotel - facing slopes was just gorgeous - every day inspiring me to get on the slopes. The... More

My husband and I spent a nice prolonged weekend in hotel Rila and are very satisfied with the experience. The location of the hotel is fantastic, and the ski lifts are right in front of it - which is great both for day and night skiing. The room was spacious and clean - only the TV was very outdated. We... More

Fab weekend. Great place to learn to ski. There is still snow! Bulgaria deserves to expand its tourist business. It is a beautiful country. It has had a hard history. It needs our support to grow its tourist industry. What great value for money. I will be back soon. A very special weekend. This hotel is so central to all... More

We travelled to The Rila on 20th March 2014 as part of a group of 8 for 3 nights skiing and boozing away from the kids! I read lots of reviews on here and to be honest I wasn't expecting much. But we were pleasantly surprised! FOOD: so many people complained on here about the food. It's not a gourmet... More

Ive just returned from a week's stay at the Rila Hotel. I would agree with the other reviews that the hotel is fairly basic but you can't disagree that it is in a fantastic location. The ski depot is a few metres away as are the slopes. There isnt a great selection of food, particularly for vegetarians. The food isnt... More
