It is superbly equipped and minutes from the resort by taxi or car.

Stunning views. Fabulous gardens and overlooked by know one.
Sleeps upto 8 in comfort.
"Kozle" is a fabulous self catering chalet ten minutes or so from the resort. We stay there quite a lot for skiing and summer holidays. It's fully equiiped for the cook and has a glorious garden. The chalet is in a little village called Dospei which is a few kilometres from thew resort.The owners English have a good website at www.borovetschalet.com and are very accommodating. I always reccommend "Kozle" for those who want to go skiing but aren't wanting waal to wall resort atmosphere
Tranquil with wonderful views. Electric oil filled radiators and a big log burner keep the place cosy in the winter. All heating costs and logs are included in the price which is a great idea.

Alpin hotel is small family type of hotel with a good location.The hotel has five rooms, one suite and two studios with terraces offering a panoramic view to the mountain. The hotel also has a holiday village with four houses.
I got this info from the hotel's site. I have not stayed there. I had only been to the restaurant having some sweets. My inpression was not that good because the desert I was having there was not fresh at all. I hope it is more an exception than a rule but just to keep it on the safe side I never went there again.
I guess you can try the place for yourslef and make up your mind if it is a good one or not :)

The village consists of a couple of two-storied cottages. They look reasonable from outside but I have never been inside.
If you look at the contact details you will see that they are the same as the ones for Rila hotel. It is not a mistake. It is just that both the hotel and the village are owned from one and the same company.
Somebody mentioned that if you are staying in the village you will be able to use some of the facilities in the sport center of Rila hotel for free but I am not sure about that.
And I have never asked for prices for a cottage, so I have no clue about that but you can check it for yourself.
It might be a good option if you are not willing to spend that much on a hotel but I am not quite sure if the cottages are warm enough during winter time.
In the cottages you have:
- two bedrooms,
- a kitchen,
- a lounge,
- a bathroom,
- a terrace,
- satellite TV, and
- a telephone.
We stayed here at The Olymp Hotel which was situated half way up a ski run, so basically you walked out the hotel around the corner and down the run, which was ok at night but you had to walk to the left to avoid being hit by skiers and snowboarders ! The only other option was to walk down the road, which had its disadvantages because at night when it was dark, the only light you had was the snow from the pine tree's, and it could get very icy on the road.
The hotel itself had a swimming pool which was free but you were only allowed to use it once per day, there was also a sauna, massage, hydro-jet and gym, all of these had to be paid for, unless there was no staff around then you could sneak in for free ( which we did for the sauna ! )
Most of the staff were very friendly, apart from afew, did actually feel sorry for them due to the long hours they worked and poor pay, but the service was good and drinks were cheap and the measures were brill !
Coming onto the rooms well what can I say, it did definately come under a 2 * hotel although half of it was renovated and the other half was'nt, we were in the latter, it was quite disappointing due to plug sockets not working, wires and hinges hanging off and mould on the ceiling, BUT we only used the room to sleep in so I guess we should'nt grumble, we had hot water and the rooms were warm and dry, it was a last minute thing to go, if we'd of booked it earlier I'd of picked another hotel.
The views of the beautiful snow covered pine tree's through our bedroom window were definately something to write home about, especially in the morning and evening as the sun was rising and setting, thanks to being so high up. The swimming pool was nice and warm, big and always fairly empty which was nice.
There is a Ski Depot on the ground floor, but as we went with a different tour operator we had to use the Depot near the Rila Hotel. The Hotel restaurant was excellent and extremely cheap, we had 4 cappucino's, a plate of fries, a burger, stewed potato's and a omelette all for 15 levs which in UK pounds is around £6.50 so it was an absolute bargain, and the service was outstanding...Well recommended.
Because of overbooking I stayed in the St.George hotel instead of the Samokov.
This place is really nice and luxurious.
When I stayed there the place was very empty and most nights I had to eat on my own , stared by 2 waiters.The food was amazing and since I paid for half board I could choose from the menu and the wine list.
Freshly refurbished, very comfortable rooms, good food. Half-board costs about 200EUR pp/week. It's about 2km from the village centre / gondola but it's a wonderful 15minute walk through the pine forest + hotel buses go every hour. Much better than some large hotels in the centre (Ela, Samokov, Olymp, etc), if you don't mind walking of course.
Smells good! not many facilities like some bigger (and older) hotels but the setting is great and rooms are new and very nice. great accommodation for that price.
BOROVETS We stayed at the Iglika Hotel which is a newish hotel compared to the bigger older established tryolean looking hotels of Rila and Samakov.
The Iglika is situated on the road behind the Rila Hotel so is handy for all central facilities. The hotel is small and friendly and has modern furniture and good bathrooms - compared to tales of other hotels it seemed to be the best! . Contrary to popular belief the food was good too.
