I spent ten days at Samokov Hotel with my son. It was OK, but not great. Starting with the food, not only the quantity, but the quality too. The room and the hotel in general need renovation. Everything is old fashioned. Even though we were all inclusive, it turned out upon arrival that its not exactly all inclusive. For example... More

This is my great grand mother hotel. Don't come here! The location is great but this is the only nice thing about it. The rooms are so old fashion, food is horrible - every day the same. I can't say they clean cuz they don't... Pool is OK. Im so disappointed from my vacation here.

We visited Borovets in the summer and stayed two nights at the Samokov hotel. It was fine but not great. The hotel is huge, with a massive lobby-bar, a big restaurant and big spa with indoor swimming pool. Our room was at the seventh floor, the carpet, furniture, bathroom were old and tired, in need of urgent refreshing but the... More

The rooms are clean, the rooms are specious. But the furniture and the whole hotel are old fashioned. A good variety of food for breakfast / lunch / dinner but the food was not as good as one could expect from a 4-star hotel. No toilet accessories, except for soap and shampoo. No free wi-fi in the rooms. Just opposite... More

What a great place! As our ski stag weekend Travel agency described! A great place to base your friends for the full snow experience. Everything went smoothly upon the hotel check-in, the only problem being one of the guys left his passport on the transfer bus. Hotel reception were understanding and helpful and quickly co-ordinated with our local stag mania... More

This hotel was used for April ski-ing, it was the end of season and was good, the food and restaurant was bustling and left us with no calls for complaint, it just feels very old, but still up for the job

My partner, brother, and myself came here for our first snowboarding holiday! Outside of the hotel was perfect!! Great snow, great bars and great instructors!! The inside of the hotel was shabby to say the least, with no atmosphere! The food was luke warm every night, tasteless and had no variety what so ever. We were charged for water!!! I... More

We have been to this hotel twice now, four years ago, then again in January 2015. If you want a hotel that is clean, with good facilities and reasonable food, then look no further. The location within resort is brilliant. We went for the skiing (for me) and the gym and pool (for the non-skiing wife). The hotel provides an... More

We booked our third trip to this hotel in Borovets Ski resort in Bulgaria. It is rated a five due to value for money, we booked a week in this hotel 22nd February 2015 for only £350 from Bristol, flight times were brilliant and the snow was superb and conditions were excellent. It is not the most challenging resort for... More
