Bansko Royal Towers Hotel
Ranked #46 of 95 Hotels in Bansko
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Just back from a very good trip this is my 6th time in Bansko and I must say it has been my best.
The skiing was good no queues Sunday was a bit bizy but only a bit I must say that this is my 3rd time going this time of year and you have lots of snow to your self the town has got better and there is a lot more there but you can still go to the old part for some charm and the prices are still good value for money.

We were staying here while skiing for the week and to be honest you couldn't really need much more for somewhere comfortable to sleep. We were up early most days and came back for showers before going back out and for this purpose the hotel was ideal. Close to the Gondola, close to the bars and restaurants. The room was clean and a decent size for 2 people, shower could be a bit cold at some times of the day but usable. Our room was really warm despite the electric heater to replace the radiators and we hardly needed it on at all. Breakfast was great value and worth paying for as opposed to self catering in the mornings. Reception were helpful but rarely needed to visit.

Room Tip: We were in Block 11 which was quiet but possibly had a few drainage issues....

The main problem I had was being burgled. One day I returned from skiing to find that the apartment had been opened and my money taken from my wallet that was hidden at the bottom of a drawer. The guys in the apartment next door had clothes, cameras and cash taken. The hotel reception did not contact me about the break ins, but the rental company (Bamro) were excellent, offering translation support and lifts to the police station to report the thefts. `I do not recommend spending a day in the police station negotiating Bulgarian bureaucracy rather than on the slopes! THe locks on the doors are very flimsy, and the external doors for access to the apartments are not locked, so they are relatively easy pickings. It made us very uneasy for the rest of the trip, having to hide valuables either in the apartment or bring them onto the slopes- not ideal in the case of iPads!

The sofa bed was poor quality and uncomfortable.
The spa was ok and the apartment was clean. It was an excellent location for the gondola, but on the whole, I won't be going back.

The location is perfect for the Gondola, just a walk across the car park, 3 minutes to the main drag with the various bars etc.

The room we had was very clean, an apartment really, the heating did not work, however a large electric heater had been installed on the wall, we left it on all the time and the room was never cold. The bed was 2 singles pushed together with one double sheet which did not tuck in, and a very thin duvet, though more where in the wardrobe, they did not have covers on.

The bathroom was modern, though unheated! the toilet leaked and so a pool of water was always there!. Hot water was plentiful....

Breakfast is a 3/10. enough to fill you up but nothing of quality.

Room Tip: we were in block 5

Having been to this same Apartment a few years back we decided to return. On arrival at reception we were greeted well by the desk staff, they gave us the keys then we were shown to the apartment, although we knew the way.
As last time on entering the apartment it was warm which was good after reading some other reviews saying there apartments were cold on arrival.
The apartment was very clean and fresh towels awaited us as with clean bedsheets.
There was a few issues that were reported the the management company that were resolved within 24 hours, lose shower head and leaking toilet, nothing dramatic.
We used the spa facilities which we found clean although the jacuzzi was a bit too cold for our liking.
The location of the apartments is a 5 min walk from the main gondola which was handy.
I have to say i usually go to France or Switzerland on two snowboarding holiday per year, these always work out very expensive and we usually stay in catered chalets that in my opinion are very rarely cleaned well, the food is always a bit sparse and the lack of space in the bedrooms can be a bit uncomfortable at times.
If you want a cheap ski holiday my advice is try Bansko, i probably spent less than half of what i usually spend going to France or Switzerland and the experience has been just as good, i found most locals friendly and most places we ate very good....and cheap. We stayed in apartment 753 and booked through http://www.banskoroyaltowers.co.uk.
