The mattress was in a terrible condition - didn't manage to get a nice rest at all. The hotel staff was very friendly but the overall feeling was not very luxurious. Booked a stay during the week (Tuesday and Wednesday) and the hotel was almost empty - which was nice, as it was quiet.

Spent 5 days here, I'd say it's one of the best hotels in the area. Staff were really helpful and pool/spa is nice. Managed to get some good boarding in and the chair lift is only a stones throw from the front entrance. Rooms are dated but really clean and spacious. Nice bar area too. Would return.

There was confusion on check in as 3 males that were with our group and staying in the same room were given a double bed only. The staff rectified this very quickly. We booked a delux room which was no different to other rooms.... More

We arrived back last night after a fantastic week in Borovets- first time skiing on snow! This hotel is great; thoroughly recommend it. Transfer- 1 hour and 20 mins from Sofia airport. The Winter Palace is probably going to be the last drop off as it is at the furthest point in Borovets, but the other drops only took about... More

Unusual but charming building from the outside, you can imagine it as The Addams family, Uncle Festa's home. Inside very nice too, we were upgraded to a junior suite and the layout and colours of the room were all very tasteful. Food was good , hotel facilities good. One gripe, don't allow me to take water with my breakfast but... More
