Newest Review: ... selection is limited. The bar in the hotel is cheap with a 500ml beer being 2.50 Lev (£1.20) which is almost a third of the price than it is in the UK. Renting equipment is cheap but shop around the smaller outlets and barter with them as they will give you a better price, don't just dive at the first offer you get as they love to heckle! However when booking your ski pass you might be ... more

Ok, so after reading plenty of reviews before my girlfriend and i went and having spent what i can only call "peanuts" on the intial trip it self, just like everyone else said we were going with an open mind with no high expectations. Having said this, were were both rather surprised especially given the fact the both of us had skiied most of our lives in many top European and even Canadian resorts! We went on February 5th 2011 for a week and stayed in the Hotel Bor just outside the town centre but a nice 10 minute walk to all of the bars, shops, slopes etc. The Hotel was nice, being cheap and cheerful, and all the staff were lovely. The ... Read the complete review

Hi im Ian from England,Been to Borovets twice now and cannot fault the place, beautiful scenery and ski slopes. Last year spent most night in KATINA BAR which this year is called SNOW INN, absolutely love this place and the great staff, they really go out of there way to look after you and make your holiday a great one. the food is the best i have ever had apart from my mothers cooking :), the only place to get an english breakfast that is actually english with black pudding, real british sausage and bacon, you have to try this place if your visiting Borovets. I am sure you will enjoy it as much as me.....Thankyou Borovets and Snow Inn i will be back very soon!!!!!!

If you are looking for a place with good food and delicious drinks you have to try SNACKBAR JOY in Borovets.Snackbar Joy is situated close to the gondola in Borovets.Therefore it's the ideal place as a meeting point; drink a large beer, hot wine or something else on the terrace while you ar waiting. If it is cold, you can sit inside (close to the fireplace).It's a very cosy place with a seperate room for smoking and non-smoking. They serve delicious pizza's, made in a traditional way in a stone oven, for a reasonable price. You can taste all kinds of food varying from the traditional Bulgarian kitchen to an english breakfast.The people are very friendly there.YOU HAVE TO TRY IT!

Having never been on a skiing/snowboarding holiday before (i had several hours tuition in a UK snow centre) i was realy hoping for somewhere quite simple and where the slopes didnt pose too much of a challenge. I snowboarded by the way. I found Borovets, this turned out to be perfect for me as there were plenty of small slopes that i got aquainted with for the first few days and then there is a large mountain that more advanced users can go down, i attempted this on the last day but only managed a small part of it. From speaking to experienced snowboarders and skiiers they definatly found this resort a little simple but i think for such as myself it ... Read the complete review

I have just returned from a week long ski holiday in Borovets. Firstly i would like to say that the prices may be cheap but its definately not worth bothering to go to. The food is terrible! There is a limited choice of pizza and chips. The skiing is okay but by far not the best. The lifts are set out in the worst way possible. The runs arnt sign posted properly, so that it easy to get lost. The night life is okay but it is very very annoying whilst walking through the town and you get people begging and asking you to come in. There is a few upsides! The beers are cheap if you go to the right place and the hotel rila is a good place to stay with lots to do if you dont ... Read the complete review
