I wish more hotels in Bansko were like Lion. Stayed with a friend for 3 nights and had no complaints. Nice, spacious, clean and warm room (with a balcony), comfortable beds (although a bit on the small side), big bathroom with hot water at all times. The hotel lobby is basically what a hotel lobby should look like: big, comfortable... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel on a half board basis for a week. The rooms are a good size with a very nice ensuite bath and shower room. There was always plenty of hot water and the rooms were cleaned daily and towels changed. The swimming pool area is very nice with sunbeds and a jacuzzi. The... More

The rooms were really big and nice and clean. Breakfast was pretty good although no fresh juices which is a must on a hotel breakfast. Drinks were reasonably priced and there was always a great atmosphere with lovely fires going in the lobby. The children loved the pool although it was quite cold and we used the Spa which was...

We recently used the hotel for a 5 day skiing trip and having seen what others were in Bansko were glad we did. It is one of the few in the town that is a "proper" hotel and worthy of its 4 star rating. ROOM good size, cleaned every day (towels changed too) has everything you need including a mini... More

...I must have been using the previous reviewers bandwidth! Free wi-fi in rooms as well as lounge areas. I had no probs downloading a couple of films from the net. Fair enough, it wasn't lightning fast, but after ten minutes or so I could start watching a feature length film with no further buffering. Buffet food was okay, if a... More

Stayed here last week (over UK school holidays). Family of 4. First ski holiday with the kids (6 and 7 yrs) and can only say positive things. On arrival the check in was fast and polite. The room we had was much larger than expected, very warm and very clean. Breakfast and dinner were both very acceptable. Given the cheap... More

Just spent a week at this hotel and I would never ever stay here again - even for one night. Unless you only go skiing to spend as much time as possible skiing and don't care abou the food you eat and you are happy to eat the same food day in and day out - then this will do.... More

Just returned from short skiing break with family and friends. This hotel is very comfortable and the rooms very clean and spacious. Bar and lounge area very relaxing place especially after a day on the slopes. Drinks not expensive for hotel prices. We found staff very attentive and whilst the evening menu is not great there was always something we... More

For our fourth time in Bansko we decided to try another hotel and chose The Lion because we walked in front of it when we were staying at the Premier Hotel and found it looked nice. Also the sign "Lion's guests only" on the parking space in front of the hotel made me laugh and made me remember this hotel.... More
