Reason for our stay was a three-day training seminar. It seemed like the hotel management does not want to have business clients in general and we all felt like intruders in the families' heaven.. -the training room is actually a fun-room with a billiard table, adapted to the training needs with some chairs; - no flipchart, no flipchart paper and...

I have visited this hotel 2 years in a row in winter. And, unfortunately, I saw that it is deteriorating over time. While in my first visit I was captured by the brilliance of the hotel: all aqua facilities are functional, the room was fresh and the stuff friendly, I decided to visit this place again. And the mail benefit... More

I have stayed with my wife and 1 year old child in the beginning of June. It was off season so there very few people in the hotel and even less in the rest of Bansko. The Hotel is located very close to gondola and shopping mall (that does not work off season, only the super market). The center of... More

The hotel room was great - large with a living room and dining room. The only minor drawback was a moldy smell inside our room which was annoying. Our room was in the residences, which were in another building next to the hotel, requiring a lot of walking in and out of the two buildings to reach the reception or... More

This is my second review of Vihren Palace (Previous was several years ago) and I'm really sad to make it a negative one. I wanted to take my wife skiing for the first time, and decided the best intro would be a weekend in Bansko. So I booked the same hotel I had last time, having had a very positive... More

The management of this hotel doesn’t respect its guests allowing extremely loud folk music to be played until midnight at the restaurant, not really caring that this would be disturbing for the majority of guests. The prepaid dinner is very basic. The rooms are equipped with some kitchen facilities, but do not offer any utensils (pots/pans/etc.) to allow the guests... More

Placed at a very good location near to the Gondola and Bansko touristic area. The apartment was clean but with relatively old furnishers. Breakfast was O.K but the same every day. The spa is relatively small to Regnum Hotel and the water was to cold. Its only advantage we could find is the location.

The hotel located one block from the gondola. The room is nice clean and comfortable. We were located on the second building that is a little far from pool and reception.Brekfast is o.k. but for a week it stays the same. Spa is nice and clean. Jaccuzi hamam and sauna were very good.

The rooms are newly furnished and spacious. However the hotel is overcrowded. Housekeeping can barely clean all the rooms before check-in. We had a bug problem in our room which caused severe skin lesions and the reception could not change the room because the hotel was full. It is hard to find a sitting place in the lobby. The breakfast... More
