The location is excellent, very close to the Gondola, the main beginner slopes, Rila hotel ski depot, etc.. All the bars and restaurants are nearby. The rooms are big and the heating worked very well. We never felt cold once in the room..We were always looking forward to going back to the room because the room was so warm. The... More

We travelled as a group of 7 with two twin rooms and a triple. The hotel had been well described by other reports on TA and therefore the hotel Ela was much as expected - all 3 were good size rooms with shower. Nothing special but totally acceptable. Lots of hot water, intermittent house keeping and generally clean. Quality of... More

I don't normally write reviews after holidays, however, after some of the reviews I have read about Hotel Ela, I thought I should write one to give the place some well-deserved credit. Ela is obviously a 3* hotel and therefore it is never going to be luxurious. However, for the price we paid I believe we got very good value... More

Staff were helpful, very basic rooms and warm. We have stayed in Borovets 5 times and even the better hotels are basic. For the money we paid I am not sure if the difference between the hotels is worth the extra. I would stay again? Yes. I just wished there was more snow o well

Stayed here last week Jan 2014. The reception area is spacious and there is a bar...watch the cocktails! They say they have 100s and do 2 for 1 all day...which is true but only on a very select range! Bar prices are NOT cheapest in resort so be careful!! The rooms are functional but small. Beds are low and firm... More

We were shown to a mouldy room the shower was also black with mould the staff were indifferent to our concern about sleeping in such conditions. We were given no help finding another hotel but eventually a friendly taxi driver came to our rescue. Do not stay here if you value your health

We enjoyed the stay. Lots of english footie available... More
