First time to Bansko and was recommended this hotel by a Friend. Full of character and charm, felt like I was sitting in my lounge at home when I was sitting in the bar area (cosy). James and Vanya are excellent hosts and they go out of there way to help. Anything you need is no hassle, lovely homemade bread... More

We stayed in Avalon for one night, so we can share a few details. Our room (32) was spacious enough for two, clean and warm. The view was great. Unfortunately, the bathroom did not have a shower cabin, meaning water got everywhere... Breakfast is good - you can easily get your energy for half a day. Would not recommend going... More

This was our first ski-ing holiday so had no expectations. What a treat to stay at the Avalon; James and Vanya are extremely helpful and accommodating. Rooms are clean and cosy. They recommended where to eat, reserved us a table and arranged the taxi pick up. They also helped us with the ski hire and lift passes. They hosted a... More

My children 12 & 14 & myself stayed for 8 nights (Aug 15). Although only a two star hotel, the family room with a double & bunk beds in a separate room were more than adequate. Breakfast included in the price (with homemade bread & jam) & local tourist information on walks / bike rides and local restaurants from our... More

We stayed in Bansko for 4 days of a week long walking holiday in Bulgaria and the Hotel Avalon was perfect. James and Vanya are excellent hosts and were very helpful in guiding up to good restaurants in the town. James is also very knowledgeable about the hills as he is a walker and a mountain biker. The location is... More

We stayed at the Avalon for a couple of days while on a road trip with our dog. James and Vanya were very welcoming and advised us on great walks in the mountains. The hotel is basic, clean and tidy, good breakfast, home-made sourdough if James is baking, and the bar has the best range of Malt Whiskies in the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in February. What the hotel lacks in stars is more than made up by the hospitality and friendliness of James , Vanya and there staff. Nothing is too much trouble. The food was very good, the curry night was exceptional. Can not recommend this hotel more highly. If you want 5 star luxury this is... More
