I spent 3 days skiing with the ski school and jenny and nick the instructors were fantastic. 1 day I Nick took me out in my own and ran me down a crazy closed route. I has the best time! My skiing has greatly improved via the tough love Bulgarian teaching style. The 4 hour session actually started at 9:30... More

I arrived on 18th jan 2014 and all i can say is the hotel seemed spectacular! Got checked in and to my room within 5 mins of arrival. The rooms are clean and well suited. Beds are comfy and everything changed daily. Plenty of facilities in the hotel including bars, food, currency exchange, a mini-supermarket, a pharmacist's and ski shops!... More

We have just returned from a weeks stay at Hotel Samokov and were very happy with this hotel. It is very well located in Borovets, just minutes away from the gondola and centre of town. We had read poor reviews so were slightly apprehensive about the hotel but were overall very happy. Our room was large and clean with fridge... More

This was my second visit to this hotel, once with a group in 2010 and once this year on my own. I was happy as a whole with the hotel for a weeks half board and would stay there again. The advantages are the position. It is near to the gondola and the hotel ski school /storage if you are... More

The lifts seem to take ages... More

Firstly, as many have already specified, the ski school guys were great and if could be rated they would get 5 stars plus from us. With the conditions as difficult as they were, they did an excellent job of getting people out and on the limited pistes. The ski hire at the Samokov is very convenient in the basement. The... More
