The hotel is a little dated, needs a bit of a facelift. The smoking ban definitely has to come into play. The food was just okay.

Unique Quality: The hotel was perfectly located for slope to door skiing/snowboarding. It has a pool & jacuzzi area, which is great after a days skiing.

Directions: About an 1.5 hr drive from Sofia Airport.

Rila Hotel ****

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

The four-star Rila Hotel seems to me like the best choice amongst the hotels in Borovets. As a whole it looks better than Samokov hotel and as far as I remember the prices were about the same.

It was built in 1990 and is said to be one of the largest on the Balkan Peninsula. The hotel was renovated relatively soon, in 2001.

I have not seen the rooms but I had used the sport center and had gone to the nightclub and the bars. I was happy with all of them.

There are also a couple of restaurants, a congress center, child-care facilities. Within the hotel you will also find a shopping center, a beauty salon, a medical center, and an electronic games room. There is also a parking lot.

Unique Quality: All rooms and suites have:
- large balconies overlooking the mountains,
- bathtubs,
- phones, and
- satellite TV.

Directions: Further up from Samokov hotel right at the foot of one of the ski tracks.

We did'nt stay here, we gatecrashed it !
Came down on several evenings to sit at their bar and listen to the live music, also took a wak into their nightclub, situated downstairs, which I thought was bigger than some of ours back home ! Plenty of room for dancing round your handbags here !

Unique Quality: Onsite chemist, ski shops, housing property shops, games rooms, nightclub, bars, swimming pool, sauna, gym, the BEST access to the slopes ( on your doorstep.. literally ) and much, much more !

Directions: Bottom of the sk runs. Very hard not to miss it

We didnt know what to expect having heard some bad reports, but were pleasantly surprised. staff were friendly. Food was not always piping hot, but that is how the Bulgarians eat it. They do provide a microwave in the restaurant. There is a ski store, swimming pool, relaxing reception bar & an irish bar

Directions: situated at the foot of the slopes, a stonesthrow from the lifts

Hotel Rila *** one of the best hotel resorts

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 7, 2004

A nice clean hotel, close to the ski-lifts, good restaurant (sometimes some Russian pigs that ate for 2 persons, but that you have everywhere ;)

Rila is the best as it is the most modern, i recommed the resort to anyone, especially young people!

Unique Quality: Comfortable rooms, a lovely atmosphere, and a wonderful spread of food at breakfast and dinner.

Despite being a relatively small resort, the skiing was always good as long as the weather held up.

Most of the hotels are right on the slopes and so its great for beginers as not effort is needed to carry their gear to the slopes.

Maids came round every day, they were friendly. The evening food was of wide selection, and quite nice. Breakfast was a little different. There was plenty of cold stuff, but hot food was resided to scrabled eggs most days. enough for me though.

There is a swimming pool, gym, and steamers. It is quite a nice place and in the best position. I deffinately recommend.

It also has a selection of Hoes downstairs, but don't worry if u r not interested they will not bother you, there was plenty who were.
