Do you organize your next trip in Borovets one of the most popular international mountain resorts in Bulgaria and are searching for a place to stay ? Not easy to find in all these hotels in appearance super nice and very accessible in Spring. We present you our 2 favorite with Spa.
When we search on Google an hotel in Borovets without never having gone there, it is not really easy to make a clear idea.
Choices in Borovets – Sometimes, mainly during Spring and Summer, some hotels offer so attractive prices that you would be tempted to book there immediately without check more about it. The idea of doing a great deal, as booking a double room with lot of things included in a hotel for only 20 euros, is often stronger than any. But, be careful, arrived on the spot, we can quickly disenchant : poorly located (What a pity, your room overlooks unfinished building or in ruins ?!), totally old school (The sheets are probably older than you), a staff not very welcoming (sometime, the staff never smile, it happens…) or unfamiliar with the international clientele, a smaller pool area than on the pictures (It is a bathtub actually ?!), etc. So, as everywhere in the world, in Borovets too you can be very disappointed by the hotel you booked. Do not be tempted either by all the more expensive hotels where you think you find an international standing worthy of its price. In Bulgaria everything works differently and it is also why we love it, when we know how it works.
Keep in mind some tips – Take the time to look at all the hotels, the visitors comments on specialist hotel booking sites and the travelers photos because the pictures hotels will be always very nice. Keep in mind also that during the vacations, the large weekend or the normal weekend, hotels are sometimes totally booked by Bulgarian families who meet to spend time together. So if you love seeing kids running around sometimes until late at night and crowded in the pool, these weekends are for you. If not, prefer a reservation during the week, and you will be alone in the world almost owner of the places.
Our 2 hotels Spa to stay – Having stayed several times in Borovets, without wanting to spend lot of money, our two favorite hotels in the station outside of winter are definitely the Lion Hotel Borovets and Hotel Festa Chamkoria. This both hotels are 4-Star hotels, located in the same street, in one of the most beautiful and peaceful spots of Borovets resort, among beautiful old pine forests, nearby the famous Ice Fountains. The hotels have rooms in different categories : standard, large, studios, apartments. Each room has central heating, direct phone, Internet, SAT TV, mini-bar, private bathroom with bath-tub and hair-dryer, carpet in every rooms, blackout curtains. No pets allowed in the hotel. A free parking is available without reservation. They offer also sunny outside terraces where take a hot homemade chocolate at the end of the day. Theses hotels are an ideal choice for a family or romantic vacation in the mountain with very nice and relaxing Spa area. Then, their very friendly staff speak also very well english. We spent in those both hotels very nice moments with family and friends. For this reasons, we can recommend it.
