The hotel is amazing, staff are great, but would be unfair to say that they are only in the hotel; bulgarians are happy, cheerfull and helpfull people in general.
Spa is fantastic and free for guests...
Internet works at full strengh anywhere in the hotel...
Transfer from Sofia is available and Shuttle to the ski station works very well
The only minor down side is the location which despite of been in a great area, in winter can be a little problem because Borovets village ends up not been a walking distance destination for a dinner out...
We were two couples so sharing 10levas (£5) each way was never a problem...
But still if you have a full board deal or feel like, the hotel's restaurant definitely deserves a thumbs up!!!!
It's our 4th time staying in Rila Hotel. 2 min walk to the Lift chair, restaurants and 24/7 clinic. Need to say that they have improved most of their facilities. Last year the pool was colder than outside (around +3C). This year we have enjoyed the pool most of the time. Clean, large area, and hot! The food quality has improved too, but not a great choice. On the other hand there are a lot of places to eat across the road. I would suggest Bulgari. Brilliant food, great waitresses, affordable prices (although there are pretty the same everywhere). The room are a bit outdated, but large enough. Try to get a room looking to the slopes, brilliant view! The hotel has got its own Ski Depe, so I would advice NOT to go to Boro Sport Ski Depo 2 on your first day if you are staying in Rila. You will waste half of your day queuing in order to rent the Ski equipment. The wifi is free but only in the hotel Lobby - really weak signal, especially in the evenings!!! But overall its a nice

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Stresov. The setting is so peaceful andthe service first class. We found the quality of your Villa and it's facilities to be exceptional, greatly exceeding our expectations. It was enjoyable to come back to the comfort of the Villa at the end of a day of leisure strolling in the environs. Equally important, we discovered that the Villa Stresov has a true "heart" in your caretakers, Kolio and Vili, who were always discreetly on hand to ensure the time we spent here was memorable. Our sincere thanks to all your team! Well return in the near future to savor your place again!
