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).

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!

we stayed here because of the location and it wasn't expensive! It was good as just a base but in my opinion the food wasn't good but I am fairly picky so might just be me, the rooms were nice and comfortable though.

Large hotel, definately not a 4* by british standards, comparable to travel lodge / premier inn. Well worn interior, shabby rooms. Limited buffet food but cheap enough to eat out elsewhere in town Excellent position for skiing, right on the slopes, generally ok value for money.

This hotel has everything it needs for ski focused couples, families and solo travellers! We stayed on 6tb floor with mountain/slope view which was super exciting watching the skiers race down the steep red... The staff were not rude but they were not fake smiling either ... The food was ok - breakfast was the best food of the day... More

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
