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

Clean comfortable hotel with the best view in Borovets. Had a room on 7th Floor above swimming pool at front. Good sized room but the view was outstanding!!! 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...

We had a room overlooking the slopes on the 5th floor. Can't fault the room, it was clean, plenty of spare pillows etc the room slept 4 but it was just my son and I so for us it was spacious, we had a small kitchen but didn't use it. Constant hot water and a good shower. Great location, we... More

Hotel Rila is literally in the best location for skiing. At the end of the day we skiied to within 3 metres of the equipment room. In the morning we had a three minute walk to the lifts. It is also really close to the shops, bars and restaurants. Breakfast and dinner was ok. Not brilliant but certainly good enough.... More

Really good location, close to the slopes. The only thing I would recommend is not to eat there. Breakfast is just about ok but dinner was appalling. Cold food, not replaced when empty, virtually same every night. In fairness it was cheap but If we stay there again we will eat out .

Just came back from a week in Borovets. The Rila facility provides very easy access to the ski slopes. Try to get a room with a view to the slopes, great scenery especially during the night ski. Ski depot and Lifts are just outside of the lobby. Rooms and services are basic but good, Breakfast is rich, parking is useful... More
