I was there twice in a row in 2011 and 2012. Very big and clean rooms with nice food and good service. The only problem which I had is to get Wi-Fi during early evening hours when all the guests are back from the ski resort. If I ever will go to Bansko again, I will not experiment with other... More

The hotel is big enough so it has many room types. We have booked a triple superior room. Our room was very nice and big enough, the only problem with this room was the fact that it was in the corner it was very cold in the night. We went to the reception to ask if they have something like... More

I was there on a team building event organised by our company. I was really disappointed in the furniture in some of the rooms, the food is not very tasty and the staff is not very polite. For this price I would recommend another hotel...

I statyed at the hotel a couple of years ago as part of a Crystal Ski package. Hotel Lion is in a great location, not too far but not too near Bansko town, and about 10 mins (slow) walk to the gondola - perfect! My package was half board and although I ate out most nights, the food I did... More

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.
