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. We got nice service from all the... More

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

The hotel is in a good location, close to the gondola station for skiing, and Pirin street for a night out. The apartments are fairly newly furnished and kept clean with regular cleaning staff. Reception were helpful and spoke good English. There is an indoor pool and spa area which is large, the water is warm, and a separate area... More

For a family vacation this is the worst place in the whole Bansko. Horrible service in the restaurant, poor breakfast, awful pool. My son got 6 different injuries in the pool because of missing tiles on the walls or the floor. Also the dishes are in condition which is definetly not showing 4 star quality. The waiters were always angry... More

I must say that I was very happy with my stay in the Vihren Palace. The location was excellent; a stones throw away from the gondola. The staff were ever so helpful and very willing to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms where spotless, cleaned everyday and they where more like an apartment than a hotel room....
