We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Lion and overall we were impressed, so much so that I am writing this as my first ever Trip Advisor review. The party consisted of myself, the wife, my 10yr old boy and my 13yr old girl. I shall start at the beginning.. Good flight, just over 2 1/2 hours....

A great hotel. Clean and comfortable. Family rooms very large with a small kitchenette, dinning table and microwave. No equipment or kettle in kitchen which was a bit strange so will need to take a few things if going to do any catering. Only thing is family rooms are at the front of the hotel and you get occasional noise...

We have just returned from this resort today 16/02/14, so this is an up to date review. It's so difficult to know where to start with this shambles of an operation. I'll begin with the miserable greeting at the airport as our bags were thrown into the coach. We then had to endure the slowest, longest HOTTEST coach ride from...

Stayed here with some friends for a week skiing holiday in Bansko, the hotel is very clean and smart. We were greeted by a Bellboy who took our bags from the coach for us and were given a glass of champagne even though we arrived at 3AM! Room was huge with plenty of furnishings, only drawback was that we had...

Nice hotel and lovely rooms. Great location for skiing. Food was only average though. Rather a long journey from the airport, but once there, lovely little town with some nice shops etc. No wifi on the bedrooms, only in the lobby, which would have been nice.

I was looking for a last minute getaway for 1 week skiing for myself, and picked the Hotel Lion Bansko, as a) I hadn't been skiing in Bulgaria before, b) the hotel, ski equipment and lift pass came out half the price of France and c) the photos and reviews made it look enticing!
