The place is absolutely stunning and brand new. The view from the outside spa pool is like no other I have seen. The leather of the furniture in the spa and around the hotel is the softest I have touched. Good diversity policy for the hotel staff selection -- a sign of good management.

We were staying in an apartment which was very comfortable and clean.Hotel has amaizing mountain view which I really like. It was quite far to the center but walking is around 20min. What I was missing in the room was a small night lamp next to the bed but apart of this everything was more then perfect as the room are renovated and with a new furniture.

I traveled to Greece Thassos and stopped for two nights in Bansko. The hotel has a half board option and is located in a quiet area. The hotel also has a traditional restaurant, a super swimming pool. If you travel in summer through Bulgaria it is an ideal place to spend your free time. The city is special, you can choose to go by sky pass to view the landscape. The hotel also has bicycles. Everything is very ok.

Hotel with a spacios pool, always crowded hot tub& sauna too fine rooms ( cushions & mattresses should be better, hotel management should think to renew it ) breakfast is fine,( standard level present in most of 3 & 4 stars hotels in Bansko) Lobby bar is such a nice, cozy place based on a first floor where you can enjoy lots of beverages, fresh cakes, & a very good pizza too, play pool

We arrived early morning to be greeted by Dimitar at the front desk, a matter-of-fact kind of guy but super efficient. He got us settled in in no time! Every morning we had the pleasure of greeting Boyan, the Restaurant Manager. Not only was he friendly and engaging, but he went out of his way to source gluten free bread due to someone in our party having a gluten allergy. His team, despite struggling to speak English, never shied away from helping out and keeping our table clean. He is a true credit to the establishment. Sabina & Nikoleta, were super pleasant and efficiently helped us with all our questions and requests, especially facilitating a late check out and arranging cleaning accordingly. Mariyan, is a spritely fellow, loaded with local knowledge which he graciously shared as he drove us around town. He always wore a smile and can-do attitude. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was more than adequate for our needs. It was warm and comfortable and the daily house service was impeccable. I forgot our house cleaner's name but she deservers equal praise for making our apartment liveable everyday. The hotel is about 1.3 km from the ski lift gondola. Shuttles leaves ever 10-20 minutes on average. There was always space for people and ski gear. The afternoon shuttle back to the hotel was easy to find after a long day of skiing. The Hotel has a mini market. This did not necessarily address our self-catering needs. But it was good for emergencies. Shopping felt most cost effective at Happy Supermarket (a short walk from the Gondola) and then at Aldo, again in the same area. Vegetarians will struggle to find a wide variety of vegetables and the little they have is costly. The hotel boasts a heated indoor pool that never felt crowed, even during the half term holidays. There's also a hot tube which is a favourite for aching skiing muscles. This tub can get crowded. The steam and dry saunas were fun! The Spa treatments were great too. The kids are insisting we book the same hotel and same room again. That says a lot for the experience they've had...
