    • Older travelers

      The room was excellent, warm, and always clean, and there was always warm water. Aboaut the hotel itself, in general it is very good with excellent facilities especially its swimming pool. It was my pleasure to relax in the warm water of the pool. The food also was excellent.

      The flow of the water in the bath was poor.

      Location, just in front of the lifts

      The sheets, and blankets from another era.. The breakfast of poor quality.

    • Couple
      7.8

      I visited Borovets in the summer, and found that Hotel Rila was good value. The rooms are a bit old school with their green tint, but my room on the seventh floor facing the mountain came with great views and sunsets. The showers have pressure which is greatly appreciated after trekking or snowboarding int the mountains. All in all it's a fine place to stay considering that you're not here for the hotel, but only to accommodate your stay while having fun in the spectacular mountains.

      Breakfast was the same everyday. After four days that gets boring; I like variety. Also the pool and hot tub closes too early at 19h.

    • Older travelers

      location, close to hiking annd ski terains, value for money, pool

      beds, small tv, rude impolite rececionist at 2 o clock room was not ready

    • Couple
      10.0

      A very nice hotel which was clearly renovated as I know it is one of the oldest in the resort. The room was quiet, well furnished and cozy. Extra wool blankets were provided and they were very nice and warm. It is located near the major cable cars in Borovets. Reasonable dinner.

      It seems to be a family hotel - it may not be the best for a quiet getaway of 2 (I visited in July). The breakfast was not varied enough - if you avoid fried foods it would be difficult to choose what to eat - you may end up eating the same for days in a row. The wine provided at dinner was of suspicious quality - tried it only 2 nights and stopped trying.

    • Family with children

      The bathroom was clean.

      Since the communist years in Bulgaria many things in this hotel have not changed - the personnel is helpful but not very friendly, the rooms have been partly and cheaply renovated (and the non smoking "studio" which was actually a bigger room had a permanent cigarettes smell), the breakfast was the poorest one I have seen since long time ago. Given this, the prices of the rooms and at the lobby bar and the pool bar are among the highest in the resort.

    • Couple
      7.4

      Excellent location (sitnyakovo ski center) / 300m, easy walking to the gondola, free pool and jacuzzi, great breakfast, free, guarded parking, many facilities in the hotel (bar, casino, stores, playroom, spa, gym) in good prices, clean towels everyday

      There were no free ski depot, we had to pay 9leva/day/person or take them to the room with us and walki around with our boots, staff at the front desk not friendly (everyone else ok), first day the pool was really cold

    • Single
      7.4

      spa center,many choices of restaurants,

      the reception staff was cheeky. Check-in was 2,5 hrs late and not well organised.

    • Single
      7.8

      Hotel Rila is a good place for the skiers and for relax as well. It locates near from chair lift and has good spa facilites including fair swimming pool.

      The staff don't take enough care for the good condition of the of the bathroom facilites.
