Reviewed August 13, 2006

We have just returned from a 6 day stay in the Pirin Hotel as part of a two centre holiday with Balkan Holidays.

The hotel itself is very pretty - built along the lines of an Alpine Chalet. It is worth paying the 12 lev extra to upgrade to a superior room with air conditioning and bath. The rooms are also much bigger and most have a balcony. The standard double rooms are rather poky and stuffy in the summer as the weather then is very hot!

The indoor swimming pool is large and leads out to a pretty garden with sunbeds where you can sunbathe. There is also a sauna, steamroom and solarium.

The downsides of this hotel are the staff and the food. Unfortunately the staff are rather sullen, sometimes to the point of rudeness, and the food is bland to the point of tastless! Breakfast is always the same: fried eggs (cooked and left to congeal), scrambled eggs, a few chopped up bits of sausage and a few scraps of salad and bits of fruit. There is a coffee making machine and a machine which contains hot and cold water - but no tea bags (bring your own). The evening meal is little better. It's all pretty boring and don't bother to ask for bread because you'll get a slice of doughy supermarket bread and have to pay for it!

However the town of Bansko is full of excellent local taverns, which are cheaper than the hotel restaurant and 100 times better, so go there to eat.

I can't praise Bansko itself too highly. The summer temperatures are every bit as good as in the beach resorts and the mountains are beautiful. Wonderful place to just chill out or go for exhilerating walks in the mountains. Don't be fooled into thinking Bansko is just for skiing - you couldn't be more wrong! At the moment there is a lot of building work going on but, when it is finished, Bansko will rival the Alpine resorts in Austria and Switzerland - but it's much cheaper!!

A large hotel in the centre of Bansko, the Hotel Pirin appears to cater for skiers and tour groups. Comfortable, well run, with pleasant gardens - and all rather anonymous- it could be a large hotel almost anywhere. But at Eur 25 per night for a good sized room including breakfast it represents good value.

The pedestrianised centre of Bansko is immediately across the road, offering a wide choice of bars, restaurants and open-air Mexana garden restaurants, all within a 5-minute walk.

Hotel has its own enclosed car park.
