Hotels are growing like mushrooms in Bansko

Standart daily, 25.10.2005

Hotels are growing like mushrooms in Bansko The mayor is writing a program for protection of the green sites! 30 new complexes are going to be constructed, 10 000 guests are expected next season! Every new building in Bansko is a hotel. The homes of the local people are getting harder and harder to notice. Very soon our houses will be less than the hotels. Just 50 meters from the starting position of the cabin lift in Bansko is situated the newest and luxurious complex in the resort Kempinski Grand Arena. It was found three days ago, the ribbon was cut by the President Georgi Parvanov together with one of the owners of the chain Reto Vitver. I believe in the success of this initiative. The hotel will give its contribution for the good name of the Bulgarian Tourism and for its fast entering in the European Union, said the head of the country. The posh hotel is in a typical Alpine architectural style. It is a wonderful ensemble of five buildings, which take a total area of 23 thousand square meters. The hotel can welcome 340 guests in its 132 rooms and 27 apartments. A special system for noise isolation makes the stay in the hotel pleasant and cosy. The rooms offer terrace, and air conditioners, radiators, mini bars and even wireless internet access. The first class restaurants and bars offer attractive international cuisine and classy drinks. A real hit among the guests is the SPA center Zalez, where the guests can enjoy Tai massages and body therapies. A roman bath and the secret lady bath tub, solarium, hamam, steam bath, Jacuzzi, swimming pool, an open air swimming pool with hot water, are among the services that pamper Kempinskis guests. The interest towards the town is huge. This winter the resort will offer 8000 beds, next year they will be 10 000. A new five star hotel will be ready 2006- 2007. The mayor Alexander Kravarov will offer the restriction of the construction works in the town. These offers have to be accepted by the municipal council and than by the Ministry of regional development. Our goal is to restrict the number of floors and the density of constructing. We insist that just 30% of the area can be constructed and the rest to be free green sites. The mayor wants 10 million BGN for the deciding of the infrastructure problems of the resort. The municipal will offer 10 million BGN for the development of the resort as an international ski center.

    I went with my daughter January 2018. I was a cheap half board flights included and we wasn’t expecting much.... but what a fantastic week we had!! Stayed at the Lion hotel which is about a 10-15 minute walk to the slopes/town. A free shuttle is provide by the hotel. The hotel and staff are lovely. The food was always varied and hot. My daughter and I are vegetarians and in only two nights were we disappointed with the choice - but we heaped up on pudding so didn’t go hungry. Am lucky enough to be going back in 2018.

    I wonder if the poor review is really about the Winslow Elegance. We have been going for years. It does not serve food and never has done. However, the spacious accommodation is for self-catering. We have always found it to be clean and we have always found that the reception staff can not do enough for you. We are looking forward to our next visit in February, 2017, Bring it on!!

    Had a great week over xmas there - Hotel Lion was great, didn't see any lift queues but I did get there early. Easy blues for the most part, not loads for the advanced skier but great for beginners and families. I had more fun here than Chamonix last year at the same time. Bottom line ...manage your expectations... it is more than value for money but don't expect Whistler.

Friendly staff, not ovr crowded relaxed athmosphere. our friends (group with total of 7 rooms) all very happy! It is away from city center but close to bowling and 2 nice reaturans.

    Just came back from Sevlievo in Bulgaria. Drove up to Hotel Impulse in Uzana where I hired skis, boots and poles for myself and two children for just 17 levs for adult and 10 levs each child and used the hotel ski slope 5 levs each. Perfect for the kids first time as parking right at entrance to hotel and slope is 20m walk! Food in restaurant tasty and cheap. Perfect for beginners!

    WOW, thats all i can say about the previous week of my life. The snow conditions were amazing and the people were so friendly. The night life was always active and the rila hotel was especially fantastic. I loved the accommodation at the rila and i loved the way it is right on the slope. I wouldn't have changed a thing about the holiday and i would recommend this resort to everyone including beginners and experts. Overall, i had an amazing time!!!
