Comment: We stayed between 13th and 20th Feb in this very modern hotel with our 11 year old son for a weeks skiing. This was our 3rd time in Borovets.We paid an extra £56 for the week for a junior suite and although we didn't see a standard room we were pleased with our room, nice large bed and new sofa bed for our son.
The food choice was limited but the quality was of a good standard, you wouldn't go hungry. Restuarant staff pleasant, a good bottle of wine around £10.
Reception staff were helpful and friendly and spoke good English and the exchange rate in the hotel was slightly better than the bank (2.23 to the Pound). Drinks in the bar were keenly priced, glass of wine 3 lev, coffee and cake 4 lev.
The pool is a good size and the water temp was nice. My partner had the Turkish Harmana spa treatment and our son had the chocolate massage which both thoroughly enjoyed and cheap compared with UK prices.
The only downside is the distance to the main resort. It's really too far to walk and although the hotel has a mini bus service it doesn't run in the evening.
Overall this is a very nice hotel.

Comment: The hotel was a little out in the sticks a half hour stroll from the gondola. You could probably walk it in 20 minutes at a brisk pace. The taxi's were ample and cost 10 to 15 lev not bad for a full cab. The shuttle bus went three times in the morning and three in the afternoon but there was an earlier one at 13.15 if you want to get back earlier.
We were lucky with the snow although it started to melt a couple of days before going home.
Our hotel was exactly as described in the brochure and the food was great. We were expecting the worse from what we heard but the food was fine no problems at all and the rooms were clean and tidy. Like I said it was a little out of the way but at least it was in a nice quiet location so no problems from noise from nightlife. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.
The pool was as the picture and if you are in early during the day you will have the pool to yourself. It only fills up when everyone came back from skiing.
