I will definitely stay here again if I ever end up back in Bansko. Rooms are spacious and clean. Nice restaurant and bar. Food is generally pretty good. The spa was great - includes a sauna, steam room, hammam, pool etc. Staff are nice (if not a bit sleep deprived looking most of the time). Conveniently located near the gondola... More

We stayed at the Hotel Lion Bansko between 3rd and 10th March 2014. This was our first trip to Bansko and it did not disappoint! The hotel is no more than 10 minutes (at most) on foot from town and the gondola station (ideal location) however the hotel run a shuttle bus to the gondola station also. Our room (a... More

This was our first visit to Bansko and the Hotel Lion was typical of other Bulgarian Hotels we have stayed in before at other ski resorts. We booked a late deal through Easyjet holidays so we expected a no frills holiday but was again pleasantly surprised. The rooms were warm, clean and modestly furnished. The pool was a little cold...

Pleased to say even with all the pleasant reviews on here, the hotel outdid itself. I stayed here the first week of March with my friend, we had a lovely room on the top floor, extremely spacious, clean, and furnished well. The hotel was always warm throughout, even in the lobby area where you just walk in and was lovely... More

Good healthy food, nice and clean. However, so noisey especially if you have a room downstairs. Good for families or large parties, but not quite as good if you want to chill with a bit of piece and quiet.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Lion and overall we were impressed, so much so that I am writing this as my first ever Trip Advisor review. The party consisted of myself, the wife, my 10yr old boy and my 13yr old girl. I shall start at the beginning.. Good flight, just over 2 1/2 hours.... More

A great hotel. Clean and comfortable. Family rooms very large with a small kitchenette, dinning table and microwave. No equipment or kettle in kitchen which was a bit strange so will need to take a few things if going to do any catering. Only thing is family rooms are at the front of the hotel and you get occasional noise... More
