“A very well located hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

The Grand Monastery complex hotel is conveniently located close to the lifts and ski schools, only walking distance which allows you to have the freedom when you want to start your ski or if you decide to get back to your apartment if you need to, without having to wait for your transfer. It has spa and indoor swimming pool (fees starts from around £5.00 for the whole day) also has bowling, pool tables and bars and restaurant. The only down side was the occasional rude guests that smoked inside the hotel common areas (restaurant and bar). We did complain but the staff told us that they wont listen. I think they were Russian. We booked our apartment directly from a British family and our 2 bed apartment was well equipped with a fireplace and wonderful views. We seriously considering booking it again for next year.

I stayed two days in an one-bedroom apartment. The apartment was big, well furnished, cheap, and really nice, except the sheets (short). It could easily accommodate 3 or 4 people.

Internet is available in the lobby. The lobby is also great.

So, IMO, this place is very good for a ski vacation and useless in the summer. The whole resort was empty, which doesn't seem right, because the area is awesome.

I found one working store (x3 the usual price of everything), one restaurant, and 30-40-50 empty hotels. Shiroka Luka and Gela are <20km away and the situation there is much different - working restaurants and people walking around.

Room Tip: This is a winter resort.

We stayed over the new year celibrations and we had the time of our lives.
The hotel is half way up the mountain and next to the ski runs and lifts.
The staff where helpfull and the place was always clean and tidy. The apt. was very well equiped and there was a large log fire, cable tv fully fited kitchen and bath/shower. The swiming pool and sauna after a hard days skiing is a great way to set you up for all that apraski. We will return

Location was fantastic and loads of snow, a very nice apartment and facilities. The pool was great after a day on the slopes, although it was a bit cool!!! The apartment was cosy with the log fire lit and the kitchen well equipped. We found the manager and staff so friendly and helpful and would highly recommend this ski complex.

I am so glad we took a punt on this one. We booked two rooms at this hotel for me and 5 mates, The skiing was great - lots of snow at this time of year, lots of pubs, restaurants and places to visit.
We enjoyed using the facilities - the pool, got a massage just after having a good day on the slopes. Also used the bowling alley that was downstairs, was a good way of winding down after a busy day.

Watch out for the drive up - if there is a lot of snow you might want to allow extra time.
