The Samokov hotel in Borovets in perfectly located in the resort, only a hundred yards or so from the main gondola lift to the Yastrabetz ski area.

it won't ever win any architecture awards, being built in communist-era brutal style, but the rooms are spacious, with separate toilet and full bath, not just a shower (alhtough the bathtub is not sealed to the wall, so if you're just showering the water runs down the wall and behind the bath)

The rooms have TV (but only 1 english-language channel, BBC world news) a small fridge (not a minibar) a sofa bed, and a balcony. We had a great view out over the mountains.

The food in the main restuarant is pretty good; at least it is hot, unlike some other Bulgarian hotels. There is always a decent variety to choose from.

The main bar in the hotel lobby is fine, very brightly lit, but with plenty of comfy sofas and chairs to relax in. The bar prices are in line with the rest of the resort

The hotel has its own ski school, with good quality instructors. be warned however that the downstairs ski depot room is stiflingly hot, and you will be sweltered by the time you have picked up your gear in the morning.

The hotel has a large pool, which is on the cool side. The jacuzzi requires pre-booking, and you should try to book before you travel as it always seems full.
