I booked this trip last minute and found Borovets to be great value for money, lift pass about half that of French resorts and drinks are cheaper than at home, compare that to £8 for a beer in the Alps and Borovets delivers if you are on a budget. The hotel Rila is large and roomy, the food is Ok,... More

It is bigger hotel with many rooms. We had room with slope view on 4th floor which was perfect. Room was double bad with bank beds... More

After a bored afternoon of mooching around on the internet and passing time by looking at holidays I booked a ski trip for me and my mate. After a ski trip aged around 15 I always had the urge to do it again so ski trips were first on my search list. After checking prices for Andorra and France I... More

Stayed here as a family in March this year....great location and cheap for little ones to learn to ski. BUT....the hotel makes no differentiation between it's clients and you will be likely to find your family stuck in a room between Eastern European teenagers on a binge drinking weekend and a stag party..!! No sleep, aggressive drunken teenagers making noise... More

This hotel was cheap and cheerful. It isn't exactly luxurious, but it's clean and in a prime location! We ate in the restaurant once for breakfast and once for dinner and ate out the rest of the week. The food was pretty average, but for the price of the hotel it is excellent value. We will definitely be returning!

You can't really get a better location that Hotel Rila, you are literally steps from the slopes. The hotel was excellent located, but aside from that there wasn't much else going for it. The rooms were extremely basic, the food in the hotel was shocking, so much so that we ate out every night. The staff were helpful, but seemed... More

Food ok always found something we would eat. Ventured out for food one night to the Alpin which was excellent! Found staff to be generally welcoming.However, the lady in the gift shop... More

I think these reviews need to include ones salary as this is where I believe the conflicting reviews come from on trip advisor! Of course if you are on mega money and are use to expensive cuisine and can afford sheer luxury accommodation you aren't going to rate the same as someone on my income here on trip advisor I...

Constant hot water and a good shower. Great location, we... More
