I have traveled with my wife and my son (1 year old) from 30 December till 3rd of January. The hotel is around 8 minutes walk from Bansko ski lift. Breakfast and dinner overall was ok. I did not enjoy the beds witch are quite old and the doors that are slammed very often and was a big noise.

My room (306) was spacious, very clean, nicely decorated and had an great view from the balcony - especially in the morning with the sun rising over the mountains. Staff were all helpful and spoke more than enough...

This hotel is the perfect choice for a family vacation or if you plan a trip with friends. The rooms are big, but yet somehow you feel very comfortable and cozy inside. It's very close to the sky lift and perfectly located up the hill from the centre of Bansko. The receptionists are all nice and the food as they...

I was lucky enough to be invited to a conference of Bulgarian Head teachers and even luckier to be invited to stay at the Hotel. The rooms are palatial (bigger than my flat I think); the food portions limitless and the staff's hospitality and friendliness knows no ending. It would be a great place to stay if you were aiming...
