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

Stayed here at the Samokov hotel from 31st Jan to 7th feb with my partner. It was my first time skiing however my partner has done a few seasons for Crystal and been skiing for years. 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Good enough hotel if you want the European treatment, very basic, rough bed linen and quite out of date furniture.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

The rooms are very basic, you definitely get what you pay for. The beds are awful to sleep on and with scratchy and itchy bed linen (causing me extreme back ache) we had what looked like punch marks/holes in our doors. Plug sockets that were coming out the wall, unsafe to use!! Noise from other peoples room, might as well... More

Stayed here again from the 1st February and thoroughly enjoyed it as we usually do. Its warm, clean and central. There have been some improvements, double glazing has been installed, the hot water is now constant and they are upgrading some of the soft furnishings in the rooms. The rooms are clean and comfortable and we had plenty of clean... More

This is my 5th stay at the Samokov hotel and it hasn't changed at all, or probably since the day it opened, but I always know what to expect from the hotel as the staff, the retro curtains, the vintage bedroom tv and the lukewarm swimming pool have not altered in between stays. I particularly enjoy the bathrooms. The cobra... More

Ok, I'll start with saying that I know Bulgaria isn't as modern as the UK or Western Europe, and have factored that into the rating of the Samokov Hotel; it would have been 1* otherwise. We stayed in room 705. Pros: Access to the Gondola is very good - just 100m to the bottom station, which can take you all... More

I relly have no idea why people have to slate the Samokov and its staff. We were there for a weeks' skiing holiday in January this year and it was absolutely brilliant. The staff were so friendly, the food was great and there was always plenty to do in the Hotel. The outside certainly does not do it justice as... More
