The best thing about the hotel is by far he location: 3-5 minutes walk to the gondola station. The rooms were clean and the staff was nice and helpful. None of the windows are closing properly. They seem to have improvised some closing mechanism that deteriorated in time, the balcony door was curved wind was blowing through the sides. Our... More

After 20 minutes waiting at the lobby our turn came to check in. There was a problem with our agency and they... More

I am a snowboard bump and usually sleep in a sleeping bag in some shelter deep in the mountains. But I wanted to surprise my gf and take her to a luxurious SPA weekend for the woman's day. (08.03.2014) So I ended to taking her in the Emerald hotel in Bansko as we both snowboard. One of my biggest mistakes... More

I've been in the hotel at Feb 14 with my girl friend. I almost cancelled the booking because of all the bad reviews, but I'm glad I didn't. It's my second time in this hotel, the last time was 2 years ago. The staff were okay, except for one cheerful bellboy, all were having serious looks most of the time,... More

The people working at the hotel behind the front desk are very rude and unhelpful. The food in the hotel is very average and the same every morning and almost every... More

We were here in this hotel for the first time and it is not recommended especially for family with small children. Heating doesn't work, it's cold at night and no wi-fi in rooms in theese days. You can find better for your money.
