    Friendy staff, clean

    Out-dated interior, poor food choice: the same breakfest each day and one dish for dinner, not good quality either, and small portions. We had both electricity and water shortage over the two days we were staying in.

    They were very nice permitting us to have our dog in the room. The room was super clean, large and bright. Best value

    Breakfast was pretty basic.

    Excellent location only 1 minutes walk from the gondola. And if you miss breakfast sunnys bar does an excellent full English and are about 20 meters from the front doors. The rooms where more spacious than I expected. Would definitely return.

    The location was excellent. Only a very short walk to the gondola and ski hire and a short walk to the beginner slopes and ski school. All the restaurants and bars are in close walking distance and as the reception is open all night didn't have to worry about getting back to hotel. The wifi worked in my room and I had a good strong signal. The room was comfortable and warm and the shower was amazing. Just what I needed after a long day in the slopes. The food was good and the seating area in the lobby was warm and comfortable. Very good hotel at a reasonable price

    Struggling to think of something um..... Not very many tv channels in English. Yes I'm clutching at straws, I don't come on holiday to watch tv anyway.

    The location is excellent, very close to the Gondola, the main beginner slopes, Rila hotel ski depot, etc.. All the bars and restaurants are nearby. The mini bus to Samakov is right outside the hotel. The heating worked very well. We never felt cold once in the room..We were looking forward to going back to the room because the room is so warm. The breakfast is good and the sitting area and the bar is very pleasant. The female staff at the hotel are very warm, welcoming and helpful.

    The male staff in the hotel are miserable. They do the job efficiently but never smile. They should learn from the female staff.

    Nice location; good value for the money.

    Sauna was a big disappointment. One must book for it at the reception desk in advance and is not free as stated at But still, the most unpleasant surprise is the bunch of young people sitting and drinking in the relaxing area, so one is not comfortable using the sauna. The hotel staff could not do much but say "sorry" to us.

    Superb position for gondolas, ski schools and centre of the resort, Bedrooms clean, and well maintained. Central lobby well maintained. Friendly, helpful staff. Competitive bar prices.

    Bulgarian food is always very "basic". However, the food at the Ela is particularly basic, with little edible choices, luke warm, and nothing decent for vegetarians. No bath, only shower in the en suite.

    Stayed there 2nd time, first time was last year as young couple, and now with 3-y/o child. Every time was good enough. Very nice indoor children playground - my son played every day and didn't want to stop. Good enough location - no noise from drunks (mostly Britishs) who stays at center, 200 meters to gondola, 500 to chair lift. New bar team is much more silent than previous - there're no any noise at night at all (last year there was karaoke), so it's very good for children. Breakfast now starts at 7:30, so early birds can be on slopes at 8:30 :) One advice - try to ask room at lower floors (1-2), it's much bigger than on 3rd floor. At all - excellent for its price.

    Breakfast isn't good for child 2-4 years - there're no any oatmeal or yogurt, only "cornflakes", but still good for adults. Sauna should be additionally payed. In most hotels it's free for use. No any outdoor playground for child. During our stay there won't any snow, so it's quite hard to play outdoor.

    Warm. Good shower. Excellent location close to gondola and central.

    Sheets and towels not changed for 4 night stay. 2 single beds rather than double which split if you lay on gap.

    Nice location, the rooms on the first floor are big enough, but those on the upper floors are little bit smaller.

    Some of the staff were very unpleasant. For example the waiter started to pick up the breakfast in 10:05 am although many guests were still eating.

    Location next to gondola. Free parking. Very good price for the period we stayed. The food was good (we had dinner also) Also they let us check in earlier.

    A little late breakfast if you want to spend all the day skiing. Reception a little disorganized. (They didn't know what was the amount that we need to pay at check-out so they asked us luckily I still had the booking voucher).

    Very comfortable accommodation to stay with pets, especially if those are two 6-month-old rotties.

    Nice atmosphere, excellent location, value for money ++++

    The time of the breakfast. For those who want to do as much ski as possible, it's difficult to be at 8.30 (the starting time of the lifts) on the mountain. It would be better if the breakfast time started earlier. Being keen on skiing, when we asked at the reception to have breakfast a bit earlier, the answer was ''you have to wait''.

    I don't have anything I didn't like.
