Second time visit and another very pleasant stay. Nothing I can say that hasn't been said already. Just go. I would imagine that a lot of people return which speaks volumes. It's all about the service. If you are a single traveller you can be assured that you will feel safe and welcome.

We had fantastic holiday in Bansko staying at Hotel Avalon. Food was lovely, James and Vanya are very friendly and helpful. Having a massage at reasonable price was unexpected luxury. Bansko ski resort has good mixture of run. We could try Red/Black route next time. We also enjoyed good portion of fresh salad and meat/fish dish again at reasonable price... More

We, a young family, stayed at Hotel Avalon over the Christmas period. The Hotel was found to be very clean and well appointed; punching well above it's weight, in my opinion! James, Vania and their team made us very welcome and looked after us well. The food was very good; in particular the curry experience, which was to die for!... More

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...
