Pros: - both rooms and the bathrooms are very generous in size, well maintained and clean; - good-quality, tasty food - both at the breakfast-buffet and served a-la-carte; - large and comfortable bed; - nice and friendly staff; - nice lobby-bar with fireplace (though quite noisy in the evenings); - very good Wi-Fi connectivity; - free shuttle-bus to the ski-slopes;...

I stayed at this hotel for six night with a group of friends to go skiing out of season. The hotel was far from full, the staff helpful, and was reasonable value for money. However the food (half board) was buffet service every night and despite a change in the actual items offered it was a bit of a muchness.... More

Just back from a week long stay at Lion Hotel Bansko. The check-in process was straight forward, staff were eager to help carry our ski gear to our rooms. Our 'family' room was enormous. Basic furnishings, but so much space. The King-size bed was two singles put together, but with one mattress. There's a small kitchenette with microwave and kettle,... More

We had a great week in the Lion hotel in Bansko. The staff where great and could not do enough to help us. We arrived very late to check in and they had prepared a sandwich for us and a piece of fruit, which was a nice touch as we then didn't have to venture out for a late bite.... More

We arrived late, around 12AM on a Saturday night. Tired. Checking in we were instructed to take the lift to the 5th floor to find our room. So off we went, only to discover no such room number existed on that floor. Fifteen minutes of searching, nothing. I inadvertently woke an employee as I mistakenly bang on a door that... More

had a great week in the Lion hotel in Bansko. Staff where great and could not do enough. We stayed half board and the breakfast and evening meal were spot on, with plenty of variety, and I'm a very fussy eater. Drink prices in hotel were very good, large glass of Merlot only 2.50. Leisure facilities were very good pool... More

We were upgraded to a family room, very nice, top floor 6, very roomy. The lift was annoying, irregular and faulty at times. Food was inclusive but standard was school canteen. Staff were lovely. Enjoyed the visit and would return, dependant on the deal offered.

Stayed here in Feb/March 2015. The hotel is nice enough, but there is a night club in the basement and the noise from it kept us awake every night. Our room was located on floor 4. On Friday night/ Saturday morning the club finished at 7.30am! Additionally you end up with loads of drunk revellers hanging around the front of... More

Spent 4 nights here Feb / March 2015. Hotel was clean and rooms were big. Close to the lift. No need to get the bus unless you have gear to carry. Only a 5/10 min walk though town. Food was just ok. We ate in one night and because food is so cheap we decided to go out other nights.... More
