I have stayed at the samokov 3 times now. The hotel is stuck in the 80's but is adequate. The food is very basic but as long as you like pork you will be able to eat ok. The access to gondola to decent ski area is superb. I would rather stay here than any other hotel in borovet. To... More

Just spent another week in the Samokov Hotel in Borovets. As ever, the snow was unpredictable but that is Bulgaria! The hotel seems not to have changed since I first saw it years ago. It is best described as very large - around 800 rooms - and predominantly frequented by Eastern Europeans (mainly native Bulgarians but also Serbians, Macedonians, Turks... More

For what we paid it was good value. Built in 1988 with some of the original features it was in need of up dating. The rooms were spacious and well worn. There was an extensive hot and cold buffet breakfast not top quality food as expected.The reception staff were very helpful. The free parking and wifi were a bonus. The... More

Positives The location was good. A five minute walk to the slopes with a choice of bars and restaurants near by. Apart from the relatively friendly staff in the Resturant I'm afraid that's most of the positives. The food was ok and the hotel was generally clean. Negatives The hotel receptionists were very rude. The excessive noise from the bars... More

This Hotel is pretty big and needs some work doing to it just to get started, you wont miss it. We arrived around 10:30pm in the hotel and after checking in receptionist advised us that they had kept some food for the new arrives, which was a nice touch. We were seated and brought over some potatoes and pork with... More

This was our first time in Bulgaria & we loved it! Group of 5 of us who had rooms next to each other at front of hotel, which wasn't as noisy as most reviews were saying. Rooms were spacious, warm (too warm sometimes) and comfy, with plenty of hot water, can't complain for the money we paid! A little dated... More

Quite close to the sloaps. It is a big hotel. It suits you for purpose of visit in Borovets - just skiing.The TVs from rooms are old and small, the beds are like you are sleeping on the floor, but in the winter, it is warm in the room.

Modern amenities, fancy decor, wet room, jacuzzi, water bed, walk in wardrobe.... ....none of these you will find at this hotel!! So any complainers think about it before you book and later complain What you will find is friendly and helpful staff, a comfy bed that's made each day, a hot running shower/bath with clean towels each day and plentiful...
