    Beds weren't made, towels we're not replaced, we practically remained without toilet paper. In breakfast we had to ask for every specific thing we wanted - eggs, cheese, etc

    Everything else

    The location at the southern edge of town might not suit everyone; the hotel is two kilometres from the town centre.

    Excellent quality rooms and a rather good restaurant at an unbeatable price. Outstanding value.

    -The personnel could have been more friendly, this is a hospitality business after all. The only attentive girl was the blonde lady from the restaurant. I'm sorry, I don't remember her name; - The hotel is 2 stars, not 3 stars, as advertised on booking.com; - the breakfast could be better. There were quite a few options to choose from, but most of them could be found at the supermarket. You can stand out from your competitors by adding some HOME MADE options like: jam, honey, some traditional cake, pancakes, cheese and milk from the local peasants. These do not cost much, and you help to promote your local food.

    This is a family-run hotel at the exit of Samokov, on the left side of the road that leads to Borovets. There is a 10 minutes drive to Borovets, and is a good option for travelling on a budget. The hotel and its facilities are basic and decent, you get what you pay for and we were satisfied with the quality-price ratio. The rooms are quite spacious, we were given no. 207 which is facing the forest and the mountains. The view was very nice and we slept peacefully, as we couldn't hear the noise from the road. However, you need a car to get around easily! They offer free parking, which is a plus. The wi-fi was also very good. We appreciate that we were welcomed at 11 30 PM, after a very long drive.

    Reception not 24h, had to phone-call and wait for 10minutes for someone to open. Crack on the wall, not for those that are afraid of earthquakes.

    Liked the breakfast and the view in a very big and comfortable room.
