Convenient spot for the slopes and right in the middle of the resort amenities. If you genuinely want 'ski in, ski out' however Hotel Rila would be a better option.
We booked the hotel although ended up in the apartments in a seperate block which meant wifi access was intermittent at best. It also meant running the gauntlet of iced up pathways as the concept of gritting appears to have passed most of the businesses in Borovets by.
Rooms are spacious although basic - Bulgarian 4* rather than international standards.
Kitchenette allows for breakfast and lunch options if you wish but not suitably equipped for self catering. Which would be of benefit as the majority of restaurants leave much to be desired!
Breakfast is extensive and of reasonable quality. The lounge bar at the back of the hotel on the ground floor is more pleasant for a post slopes coffee than the 'Irish' bar in the basement. Service throughout is on the whole surly and far from customer focused.
The on site ski hire shop 'Hunters' is however excellent and Bob and team were incredibly helpful - we arrived later than expected and they had us paid up, kitted out and on the slopes for our pre booked lesson in less than 20 minutes.
Overall, for the price it is a good and convenient option if your priority is skiing.
As a tip for skiing - head straight to the top of the mountain via the Yastrebetz express cable car. Stunning scenery and a fantastic 9km run down the blue Masala Pathway through the trees.
