We were part of a large group of thirty. A group of older, quite demanding folk who took over the whole hotel. We were all absolutely charmed by our stay. James and his wife Vania looked after us all so well. We are a walking group and James took us out for the most wonderful days in the mountains. His... More

Hotel Avalon is a clean simple hotel which provides everything you need. James and Vania were excellent hosts with good knowledge of the area, and very attentive to our needs. The breakfasts were really good, and we would recommend other people to stay there -- it is great value for money.

I live in Bulgaria, but sadly will soon move back to London. The Avalon is one of my favourite places, thanks to the wonderful James and Vania, its owners. Both go out of their way to look after their guests. If you like skiing and hiking, as I do, then James is a wealth of information and knowledge. They also... More

James is the person who runs the Avalon Hotel, and basically knows just about everything there is to know about the local area, from Skiing cycling walking sight seeing and any other outdoor activity that you might want to partake in. Not sure if he is still doing his Thursday night Curry, but if he is then it's a must... More

We stayed at Avalon hotel for three nights and are super happy with the house, the friendly owners and their great staff. The perfect service they provided made our stay in Bansko easy and very enjoyable. No matter if it was organizing a bus pick up, the return of a bike or advise on the best trails in the awesome...

This is most probably one of the best hotels in Bansko mostly thanks to its staff. James (the owner) is from Great Britain and he is running the hotel together with his wife from Bulgaria. They are always ready to help very quickly (which I appreciated a lot as things in Bulgaria take loooong time mostly). You can find second... More

Stayed at Hotel Avalon in July. We were slightly snookered in that we (including a one year old) needed somewhere asap and tracked James down through a friend of a friend. He could not have been more helpful, accommodating us within a matter of minutes, and calming us from a dire situation! Hotel is perfectly located on a quiet street,... More

We came here to spend some nights in Bansko klimbing mountains. James, the boss of this hotel, was able to assist with valuable tips, his wife and the rest of the crew had been friendly. What else could I say?

Hotel Avalon, it's owner and staff are brilliant. I stayed with friends on this occasion but looking forward to taking my young family in the future. Hugely accommodating, knowledgable and extremely helpful, James and his family are the best hosts you can hope for. Counting down to the next visit
