    It's a luxury hotel with very nice staff and rooms, probably the best in Bansko. The location can't be better, just near the first station of the ski gondola. The breakfast is excellent, also the SPA center (except the pools).

    There is too much chlorine in the pools, which are also small and the water in them was cold. The room service prices are quite high.

    I liked espescially the spa area, (quiet morning swims, before breakfast) wonderful swimming pool and saunas. The restaurant was quite good! Good reception, friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful surroundings, nature.The rooms were big and comfortable, the cottage style very suitable, although not "brand new". We extendend the stay from 4 nights to 7 nights.

    I did not like my bikini getting lost at the spa area or laundry and never turned up again. Also I do not like it when guests are allowed to use the italian restaurant as a "kindgergarten" (visitors from Macedonia?) and children running all over the place with electrical gadgets when you hope to enjoy a romantic dinner. This is not supposed to be a "taverna". They should do something with the furniture in the lobby, looks not very good.

    Superb

    the wooden furniture in the room, the spacious room and bathroom, the comfortable bed and pillows, the spa center, the breakfast, the balcony and the view of the city and the mountain.

    the dust on the furniture, the mini bar in the room should have small bottles of alcohol and not just overpriced 350 ml bottles, there should be a coffee machine in the rooms of a five star hotel.

    Everything was fantastic, super breakfast, english speaking staff, nice SPA, good prices and excellent service

    Water in the swimming-pool could be a little bit warmer, but they heated it on our demand, the heating in the rooms didn't work it was in the summer but there were cold days

    Fabulous

    Very friendly and polite staff, lovely room, choice of pillows, which was nice, well stocked breakfast with many choices, including vegetarian. Very nice spa treatments.

    They should clean the rooms more thoroughly. The mattresses were too stiff for our taste. The staff should learn better english. The hotel didn't have much choice for lunch or dinner.

    The hotel was wonderful. The staff is really friendly. The pools are wonderful, the cafe next to the pool has the best view. You can sit there, watching the mountains and you can forget about everything. The hotel is great for vacation or just a weekend get-away.
