An excellent location a 2 minute walk to the ski slopes and gondola. Entering the lobby you can imagine how, in its day the hotel would have been very grand. Whilst it still retains much of illusion the rooms are more 'Eastern Bloc'. Don't get me wrong, they are comfortable and more spacious than you would get in other ski...

Rightio, just got back from a fabulous week in Borovets, staying at The Samokov. I'll preface this review by saying that the package deal with Crystal was extremely cheap and the snow conditions were the best in Europe. The adage "you get what you pay for" is often true, in this case, we got more than we paid for, so...

I want this review to be fair as yes the hotel is quite cheap and you shouldn't expect luxury or anything but I just think for a 4-star hotel (apparently) they need to improve quite a lot... Food: We booked a half board stay thinking that at least we could rely on eating here if we didn't feel like the...

It's dated, but clean. No noise at all. The food is hot, there's lots of choice and something for everyone (even my fussy 3 and 5 year olds would have been fine with the choice available). For the money you pay, you cannot expect anything more. We didn't feel the need to eat out, as the food was good. Great...

The room i felt was pretty basic but on the whole the ski school made up for this 100%. So professional and I never would of thought i would of learnt that much in a week. Highly recommend Chris as a ski instructor. But on the whole you don't go on holiday to stay in the room you go to...

This is my third consecutive year in the Samokov. On my first visit I was allocated a room facing all the bars, White Magic etc. When I asked to move to a quieter location it was not a problem. Following email contact I was given the same room on my next two visits. Though dated the rooms are well proportioned,...

Didn't ruing the holiday though loads of really good restaurants near by 200£ in lev pp should see you through the week eating out every lunch and...

Our family of 4 spent new year here. First visit to Bulgaria and what a revelation. They sort itself had plenty of variety for apres ski, and the skiing was excellent with lots of snow. Very experienced skiers would find the choice of slopes a bit limited but still enough to keep them satisfied; ideal for beginners and intermediates though....

As a family of 12 we chose Bulgaria to try out skiing and snowboarding for the first time. We chose samokov because it was fairly cheap. There is an Olympic size swimming pool, ten pin bowling, spa and jaccuzzi, table tennis, shooting, pool - lots to entertain the children. Food ok - only just warm not hot which is a...
