I have just arrived and at a glance the hotel seems OJ yet when we went for dinner the chicken and potatoes were Luke warm. Then we went to use the shower and the head fell off the wall hit my head.

3rd year in a row at this hotel! Very basic & rooms dated but good friendly atmosphere. Location to slopes, bars & restaurants first class. Hotel food not the best but so cheap to eat out, would recommend that

The Samokov lived up to expectation on all aspects and having read previous reviews, I certainly agree with most of them. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable which is all you really need after a long day skiing and a heavy night boozing. The bathroom was a bit annoying in the sense that the bath had not been properly... More

We stayed here as a family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 teenagers February half term. Great choice location wise - right opposite the gondola. Hotel had own storage/hire for skis etc which was definitely a plus and this was always well looked after. The hotel was basic but you get what you pay for - If you are... More

We stayed here in the last week of Feb for a snowboarding holiday. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Weather was great, slightly foggy in the town but bright as a button once you was at the top of the gondola. Room: We stayed in room 567 with a balcony, had a great view of the slopes, the gondola is just across the... More

Recently returned from our holiday at Samokov Hotel in Feb half term 2015. Have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised! Although the hotel was slightly dated, it was obviously amazing in its prime. There was tonnes of things to do, both in the hotel and in the town of Borovets just outside the door! The great thing was, everything... More

Hotel average Resort average Ski conditions w/c 7th Feb 15. Fantastic!! Hotel out of soviet era built in 1986 but clean and fine. Located with ski hire underneath and across from the gondola with a 10min walk in boots to the Rila / beginner areas for more lifts. Hotel is large and impersonal; staff friendly in most places but dining... More

We stayed in the Samokov over the second week in Feb 2015. It's classed as a four star but would be a three star in the UK. Considering the low cost of the holiday (compared to skiing in France, Italy etc) and the value for money that you get in Bulgaria it was, overall, a good base and great place... More

We chose Borovets as my partner had learnt to ski here, the resort is small, it's extremely cheap and the lessons are morning and... More

Good enough hotel if you want the European treatment, very basic, rough bed linen and quite out of date furniture. But across the road from the gondolas and just at the bottom of the hill from the town, short walk up the hill to the slopes. Apart from that nothing to complain about (although the food is a bit dodgy... More
