Large variety of foods. Was there with our two girls, 7 years old, their first ski holiday. They had private lessons with Alpin...

Ski hire and boot room was in hotel and good attention from the staff there too. Heating in room was functioning but I was...

It is also convenient that you can rent skiing equipment and pay for ski passes right at the hotel. The lobby of...

Bulgarians don't generally queue , you need to be assertive if you want attention and there are a few people at reception. Swimming pool...

I wasn't expecting the earth, because I got a really great deal. Check-in: 5* Fast, friendly and we were given a 3rd floor room with a view of the slopes, without asking. Porters on hand to help with our bags. Issues: 5 * We had a dairy intolerant person with us, the manager couldn't do enough for us. All food...

My partner and I stayed at rila for 1 week. Been to borovets previously and had an amazing time on both visits. Definitely an improvement on the iglika palace but food cold and no vegetarian options. A microwave is needed in the restaurant to warm the food. Very warm room and although basic was really clean. Bed and breakfast would...
