Fourth time in Pamporovo and best hotel yet. Our room was a great size with a lovely balcony affording great views. The room was modern, very clean and lovely and warm. I had a couple of days in the hotel and unlike other hotels in the resort the heating was on all day so I stayed nice and toasty! Beds were very comfy. Hotel owners and reception staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. We asked for extra bedding, pillows, coat hangers, loo rolls and all bought to our room in record time. Food was adequate - no worse than we've had in much more expensive hotels but the breakfasts were fine. Lots of choice. Just get there early! If the food in the hotel is not to your taste, food is so reasonable locally then no shakes to skip the hotel and eat in the resort. (Recommend a stroll to Danmar, just a 10 minute walk away). A number of my party had massages at the hotel and said they were excellent and very reasonably priced. Lobby bar was comfortable and very cheap. Great place to wait for the gang before heading out in the resort. Loved all the skiing medals and Olympic memorabilia on the walls too! Overall would highly recommend this hotel. We had an absolute blast and will! We will definitely be returning.

I have stayed now three times at this hotel and am always welcomed as a friend. Good rooms and facilities at a very reasonable price I highly recommend Always eat the local food as it better than trying to be British abroad and not trying local food

The hotel is of excellent value. Rooms are well heated and clean. Staff is friendly. Has a nice compact spa/relax center wit jacuzzi, steambath and sauna for relaxation after long day on the slope. Try some Rhodope dishes.

Myself and my younger sister stayed here for a sking holiday March 2012.
The rooms yes were ok, comfortable get what you pay for,
We were the only English people in the hotel at the time of staying, and felt like a complete burdon on the staff the whole time we were there. The food was not very good at all, at breakfast the most we could manage was toast, and our evening meal wasnt much better Mystery meat we called it because even the staff couldnt tell s what it was. The chips were good tho. I certainly wasnt impressed to find that you didnt even get a free glass off water with your evening meal.
Severe lack of facilities in the hotel, I certainly would not be returning to this hotel, Pamporovo Resort i would return to the resort was really nice. Chanov 2 Bar just down from the hotel was fantastic, we semed to spend every night eating and drinking down there cheap too.

Overall we had a fantastic sking holiday, it was just a shame about the hotel. Poor and rude staff, and lack of choice with food.

We chose this hotel based on tripadvisor ratings and on the whole we weren't disappointed - you get what you pay for which is a small room, bed is comfortable enough, it is kept very clean and fine if you don't intend to spend too much time in it. We were, however, not impressed with the food, it is well below the standard provided elsewhere within the town(think school dinners in the same environment) and would highly recommend going B&B if you want to stay here.

Room Tip: For great views get a room at the top.

Need I say anything more than the title suggests??

Myself and 3 friends stayed here between 18/02/2012 & 25/02/2012

OK, the hotel is basic with no frills, except a steam room, sauna, jacuzzi and masseuse, but it was warm and functional.

For the amount of time spent in the hotel, who needs anything more than some food, a beer and a bed to sleep in? Dafovska has this plus more!

I'm also confused regarding the comments above about food - the food was great. OK, we had sausage and egg everyday for breakfast - and when I say egg I mean egg as many ways as you can think of: boiled, fried, scrambled, eggy bread..the lot! Accompanied with frankfurter/hot dog style sausage and a pepperoni type too, but this was merely through choice, as they also served cereals, porridge, bread/toast with cheese/sausage, pancakes, salad etc. We ate like Kings!

There was always plenty of breakfast to go around and we even covertly made ourselves sandwiches to take with us onto the piste. There are also two shops right near which sell other food.

We were half-board and the dinner was even better! There was always plenty of it and a massive array of choice. We had a 3 course meal every night, sometimes returning for a second helping on one or two of the courses. The food consisted of two types of soup to start, with either potato, cabbage, mixed veg, rice, meat loaf, chicken, turkey, pork, sausages(!) etc for the main meal or there was a vast choice of salads. All finished of with great cakes, jellies & blamange.

For the price we paid, we had a great stay in Pamporovo and at Dafovska - I couldn't recommend it enough. The only thing the town lacked was entertainment in the evening, but with a few bars and awesome friends, we made our own entertainment. I'm also sure that the bed sheets were not changed all week, but then I only change my sheets at home every week or so. So not really a complaint.

All in all, a great week was had by all. I wish I was still there!
