Reviewed 24 February 2010

i ll try to keep it brief...the plus point of this hotel is that the location is pretty good, right next to the gondola and a couple of minutes walk to the nursery slopes.
I suppose the hotel bar is quite nice if you dont mind sitting in a haze of smoke.

The rooms are quite small but basic, no coat hangers meant we lived out of our suit cases for the week, bathroom was equivalent to an 18 - 30s holiday.

Worst part about this hotel is the food, breakfast was a joke with one toaster working between around 25 guests which meant a long wait. (and it was nt the quickest toaster in the world !) would nt touch any of the hot food if it was the last meal before being locked away for 30 years. scrambled eggs looked like slop. eggs were black inside. some of the butter smelt of baby sick !!

The evening meal i can t really comment on as the first breakfast had put me off returning there again for the week !! i know other guests had similar troubles with complaints of raw chicken being served only for the whole tray to be taken away and returned minutes later still pink inside ! people would be much advised to walk up the street where there s plenty of places which serve tasty cheap food.

overall the hotel is very basic but adequate as long as your not expecting the ritz, the location is good. the food is rubbish. you ll return stinking of cigarette smoke as there s bulgaria has introduced this law as of yet. ( and the staff smoke in the resturaunt !! )

All in all you get what you pay for .................

We have just returned from the Breza and had a great time. As I travelled alone with my two sons I felt the staff really looked after us. Mariela the waitress was great with the boys and very helpful. The food was ample. We ate in the hotel every day and there was a good choice. If things ran low we only had to ask and Mariela filled up the trays.
The resort was good fun.
The boys stayed out sledging up to 10 pm every night, I had a drink in the Ice Agels and watched them. The staff at the Ice Angels were also friendly. Would definately go back as the hotel as it is around the corner from all the activities so no need to get buses. The slopes were a bit icy but being beginners we stayed on the easier runs. We were also lucky with the weather as we had a good downpour of snow and it looked very pretty. Very good fun and the atmosphere great, (can't let the touts get to you though, we just smiled and walked on).

My teenage daughter and I stayed at this hotel, booked through Crystal over the new year. The hotel accommodation was absolutely fine - two single beds - actually the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept on - on seperate walls - ideal for father and daughter combination. The only problem was the noise from other guests but I guess we were just unlucky. Good comfotable lounge area and bar with reasonable prices 4lev a large beer 1.5lev a coke. The food was OK could have done with being hotter - some guests got very angry with the temperature of the food - but hey we didn't go hungry although my 17year old might disagree though. The Gala dinner on New Years eve was really good. 5 courses, soft drinks, wine and Rakia - firewater - included. The hotel staff were attentive without being over friendly though. The location was good, about 5mins walk from the main lifts and ski store and a little less from the gondola (opposite direction). Opposite a nice English owned bar The Alpina where a large beer is just 2.5lev or 1.5lev (80p) early evening. In the resort centre a large beer is 5lev.
Borovets as a resort is OK. Nothing special infact a bit tacky with its Erotic Bars not discreet with their advertising. Lots of people hustling you to eat/drink in various bars but not at all threatening. The resort catered for families with young children as well as for groups of young adults - the sort that keep you awake at night Grrr!! New Years Eve fireworks on the slope was madness but 100% great fun. Health and Safety is not a concern in Borovets.
As for skiing. The runs are adequately maintained and there is enough to keep you occupied for a week - just about. The Gondola can get very crowded and the queue builds up from 9.30 otherwise the lift system is not a problem. Ski school was good - once you get into the correct ability group - the selection process is a farce but was sorted without fuss.
Overall I would recommend Borovets as a great value resort (especially compared against the euzo zone at the moment) but I will not be returning for the simple reason that I skiied all the runs.

  • Liked — The location and quality of room.
  • Disliked — The noisy fellow guests - but that was not the hotels fault!!
