First time in Bansko and Bulgaria. Didn't really know what to expect but this was way better than I could ever imagine. It's definetly not a 5 star palace, however this is a very good 4 star hotel! We arrived late at night to a cold Bulgarian packed lunch which was pretty awful, cold sausages and stale bread. Next morning we woke up to a far better breakfast with hot and cold foods. Very Russian orientated however there were eggs and bacon etc. Food overall was pretty good. I never went hungry. Our room was pretty basic but spacious and nice and warm! We had a superb balcony that looked over the central gardens! It was superb in that it was only a 5/10 minute walk to the goldola (TIP: GET UP EARLY AS IN 7AM AND BE AT THE GOLDOLA FOR 8AM TO AVOID UP TO 2 HOUR QUES JUST TO GET UP THE HILL!!! NO QUE AT 8AM!!!)
Resort is very Russian/Polish/Greek orientated however I never felt uncomfortable and had a great time! Check out OXYGEN nightclub! We went with Balkan Holidays and I definitely recommend going on their bar crawl! The Irish bar just up from the gondola station, next to the HEAD shop is also another great night!
Will be returning January '13!
