Comments Lion Hotel in Borovets

    Ski holiday end of Jan 2011. Have been to the Borovets on 2 other ski holidays but stayed at a different hotel. The Lion is slightly on the edge of of the resort, but is within walking distance on the way back to the hotel as it is down hill. Taxi far is 10 levs, but be careful we were charged 15 by one taxi, so ask first. Horse drawn carriage is 10 levs. The hotel is really friendly and the staff can,t do enough for you and will enjoy the banter. Rooms are very clean and warm and away from the main area of the hotel. Swimming pool fab and really warm, but gets busy. The hotel is very hot so take cool clothes for indoors. Food was good for bulgarian standards and it was hot most of the time. Be careful with the cost of wine it's not cheap, a bottle is about 25 levs (12) they do have some deals like 3 glasses for 2 for 10 levs (5) which is definately worth it. these offers are on the dining table info. Down side there was a party of school children (30 in all from Bulgaria) very noisy, but everyone complained and the hotel dealt with it very quickly along with the Nielson rep and it was sorted. Snow conditions were variable as they had not had much snow before we arrived, we were lucky though it snowed quite a bit while we were there, but lots of runs not open. We were a group of 6 with 4 beginners who all had a fantastic holiday and said they would go again.

    We visited the Lion Hotel Borovets in December 2010. The hotel is lovely, not too many rooms but lovely rooms and linen, facilities are fabulous (spa, treatments, swimming pool et) and food was excellent (remember that according to Bulgarian culture means they eat warm not hot food which is considered bac for you). Would definitely go back. Spent a lovely holiday here. Try even a small bit of the language and you'll really find out how warm and friendly the Bulgarians are. CMortimer

    Great Hotel, stayed here in January 2010 had a few reservations from reading other reviews as im a resonably experienced boarder/skier and have been on many Ski/boarding hols, this hotel turned out to be one of the best weve stayed in, freindly staff and atmosphere in the bar, pool area a little bit cold (Towels and robes provided) and gym aircon not working, the Bar is the hottest place youve ever sat in so take some shorts and t-shirt if your planning a night in the hotel, im really picking bad bits out of what was a great week, shuttle bus to a from centre was good taking about 5 mins max, please speak to people how you would like to spoken to back ive read so many reviews about how rude people are in resort and hotels but if you are polite then you will get the same in return, yes it is Bulgaria they are more abrubt than uk but thats how it is, they are not being nasty. The food in hotel was good always hot and good range, if you think your going to get Fish fingers, bangers and mash English brekfast then stick to Magaluf, you get a good range of european cuisine which maybe if you tried it you will like it, personnaly i liked it all (Although Feta Cheese for brekfast is a bit much) . Rooms were clean maid service everyday with clean towels. Wifi in bar area. I think this is the best hotel in Borovets based on the reports we had from other people in other hotels, Hope ive helped.

    Having just arrived back yesterday(14/02)I was pleasantly suprised about the standard of the hotel.The rooms were clean and adequate as we spent a lot of time sleeping inthem after being worn out skiing.The food was quite hot(we was told it would be lukewarm)and varied.Breakfast cereals were a bit limited. My daugther who is vegetarian had hardly any choice and was very poor.Hotel is nicely situated just outside the main town and the free shuttle bus is quite frequent.The rooms get too hot at night as there is no proper air con. but we overcame this by opening a window which sufficed.The swimming pool could have done to be a bit warmer .This was our first holiday in Bulgaria (6Adults)and we would recommend this Hotel.

    We have just returned from another Christmas break in The Lion Hotel. What a fabulous time, yet again. The snow just fell and fell, Christmas Day on the piste with the children was exactly as we had hoped for. The hotel, once again, spotlessly clean, extremely high standards of service and so friendly. Highly recommended, looking to book for the third year.

      The Lion hotel was perfect - clean, warm, modern, good food. BulgariaSki service was also faultless, thank you Eva for making skiing in Bulgaria possible for me and my young daughter! I will definitely be back next year and am also considering a summer holiday at a Bulgarian resort.

      Only one waitress named "Maya" was very rood and not polite at all and with her behavior she was destroying the perfect image for the hotel and all other stuff.She was commenting many things for the guests on Bulgarian language having no clue that we are from Macedonia and understanding her language....
