MPM Hotel Sport Bansko
Ranked #14 of 96 Hotels in Bansko
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The hotel has the ideal location for skiers- just opposite the gondola lift and next to Kempinski hotel. The staff are very friendly and the rooms are new, very clean and spacious, elegant and nicely decorated with a breathtaking view!.Breakfast is very good and the hotel offers many facilities such as ski rental, spa treatments, nice bar with a big fireplace, Irish pub and also it's a few minutes walk to the centre and the shops of Bansko. I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to enjoy skiing and have a great time in Bansko!

Room Tip: Ask for the front rooms facing the gondola lift-fantastic view!

Having stayed in Bulgaria before at a "4*" that really wasn't, I was pleased to see that this met normal international 4* standards. It's not the best 4* in the world, but it's definitely not the worst.

Rooms are a decent size, modern, clean, with the facilities you'd expect-minibar, large bed, good bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful but you sometimes had to work to catch their attention. Two drawbacks were that the rooms aren't individually temperature controlled and are very warm, and in my room noise from the karaoke bar, but to be honest that finished at 1am so was not a big issue.

The food at breakfast was ok, a wide range of stuff, not particularly high quality but lots of variety so you could always find something. In the nights though the food was much better than I expected. Buffet style, with plenty of variety there was always something tasty. I'd say stick to the local pork and chicken stews, wild mushroom rices (really good), stuffed peppers, massive choice of interesting salads etc. The attempts at western european food didn't look appetising but were easily ignored as there was plenty of good local hearty stuff.

The spa was good, bit noisy with families using it but still a nice, modern, good looking facility. A drawback that it is a genuine 4* is that massage prices are higher than they would be in most other hotels in resort. You can't have the penny and the bun, unless you can be bothered to leave the hotel for a massage, in which case you can!

The best thing however as many have said is the location-the 2nd best in Bansko after the considerably more expensive Kempinski, you can ski to the Gondola in a couple of minutes and back to the hotel off the easy blue piste.

Room Tip: Ask for one away from the karaoke bar if you are likely to be going to bed before 1am.

Very good location if you are a skier.The location is perfect to use the gondola lift.The rooms are comfortable with good breakfast. Spa is excellent. Friendly staff. There is a ski shop/rental with good ski teachers. The restaurant is good too, but just in front of the Sport hotel there is tavern with tasty meals-in a good price.

Room Tip: Higher floors are better- not noise.

We stayed here for a week at Christmas. Hotel in great spot for the gondola, as mentioned in other reviews. Room was lovely, restaurant good...albeit a little repetitive, but we ate out a couple evenings anyway. Spa treatments heavenly!
The only thing I have to critisize is the noise from the kareoke downstairs...late at night....if only they could've turned it down a tad! HOWEVER...would use this hotel again, just take earplugs!

We had an unfortunate start to our visit, due to the original hotel we booked cancelling our reservation without telling us (green life - avoid). After stopping on a pull out bed in a family members apartment, we managed to book two nights in a junior suite at this hotel. First impressions were excellent, foyer is very smart. Staff were helpful and we booked in with no dramas. The hotel has a fabulous location, right next to the gondola and a 5 minute walk from lots of bars and restaurants. The room was fantastic. Comfy bed, nicely decorated and very large. The bathroom was modern and nicely decorated. The breakfast was good, a large range of different food so you should find something! The spa is free to use, you only have to pay for treatments. The spa itself is lovely, only criticism is the pool was far too cold, but someone told me this is how they like it in Bulgaria. The price for the room was also very reasonable considering the quality of the hotel. Would definitely visit again if in Bansko, although that is highly unlikely!

Room Tip: Junior suite was good, cannot vouch for other rooms.

I stayed here over the new years holiday, and expected more given the other reviews. MPM Sport has ONE good thing going for it: location. It's right near the ski lift. Okay, now on to the average:
1) Spa Centre. The mens changing area is a mess. Not enough lockers, no keys, and the area was flooded with dirty water. I almost slipped as I entered! They never mop/clean the spa floor. Seems best for kids/families, as the accoustics are poor, so it easily becomes noisy anyway (and not very relaxing) when there are many people. Otherwise, the spa was reasonable
2) Rooms. They lied on room sizes on booking.com - there is no junior suite. There are standard double rooms with different configurations. The "junior suite" is also NOT 40sqm, its 30sqm. Even the hotel manager told me that. So, don't pay more - get the standard double. Rooms also had very little amenities: poor bath items, no slippers, no robe, no kettle, no glasses, no tea/coffee, no iron, etc. I DID get these items after asking, however.
3) Breakfast. Totally average. What can you say, when the juice is fake? I always find that as a good overall quality indicator.
4) Ski store. Overpriced - go down the street for much better deals on ski rental.
5) Irish pub. Average again. Reasonable priced Guinness, but food is sub-par. Service was fine, though.

Overall - pretty average! Not up to 4-star international standards, however.

We stayed at the Sport Hotel for Christmas and had a great time. The hotel was clean, the staff were very friendly and the food, was very nice (although if you're a vegetarian the choices are slightly limited). It's a few minutes walk to the gondola station and then approx 20 mins ride to the ski slopes, you can ski back down though straight to the ski rental building. The ski school instructors all spoke English and the groups were small.
My advice for new skiers would be not to tighten the ski boots until you're ready to ski otherwise your shins will be wrecked by day 2!!!!
Definitely recommend this hotel and would return there in a flash.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor and overlooked the slopes. We had no problems with noise at all.
