Pros: We have nothing but positive things to say about this hotel. Firstly, we stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment which was incredible. Stunning modern design and a view that is incredible. The doorman / porter saw us taking the bags from our car, across the street and came over to greet us and assist. Excellent service sir! The spa may possibly be the best in all of our world travels and included with your stay. 3 types of saunas, salt room, 2 different steam rooms, baths and a lovely pool. We both also had a massage and this was very good and great value. All In all, an excellent stay.
Cons: The photos on hotel website do not capture how nice the apartment is that we stayed in. This should be updated and improved as you will garner more bookings.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: The room was clean and comfortable. Views are amazing. We tried the SPA - sparkling clean, lots of choices and the staff was really friendly. But there was one guy... His name is Alfonso. He is something special... When we arrived he was waiting for us at the reception, lying down belly up and legs stretched out. A fluffy, furry gentleman. We had to pet him. He is a cat by the way :)
Cons: It will be great to have a real espresso machine at breakfast.

5,0 Okay
Pros: Great view, rooms were always warm.
Cons: The hotel surely does not meet the requierements for 4 stars. The internet is not working at all. The facilities are old and need renovation. The Spa center is hardly spa - the steam bath is not working, one of the 2 saunas was not working, the water in the pool was cold and we could not reach the jacuzzi because it was crowded with people. There were not enough chairs, where you can leave your stuff by the pool.
6,3 Good
Pros: The location was perfect, right in the centre of Pamporovo. What I enjoyed was the hot tub and pool perfect for chill out. The restaurant in the hotel is nice and quite big, has a live band which plays in the weekends. The view from our balcony was looking to the ski slopes, quite beautiful.
Cons: Firstly, the hotel is very old and reminds of the communistic times. It hasn’t been renovated in a long time! Secondly, we booked a double room bed but received a double bed with separate blankets. In the room we had a non-working radio which was from Todor Zhivkov’s era. We had a whole in the wall and don’t let me explain about the tiles in the bathroom. Although we enjoyed the hot swimming pool the steam room was closed and we were able to use only the sauna apart from the pool. The hotel’s sky bar was also not working due to some reason. Lastly but not least the noise from the bars was all night long. For sure I wouldn’t rate it as 4 star hotel!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Food. Lobby , reception, hospitality, music, rooms... Pool is great with clean and warm water . Jacuzzi as well. Massage was phenomenal. In lobby there are shops and hairdresser. Music was perfect, just feeling that you are in a real hotel , like once upon a time.
Cons: Maybe few more sockets in the room . Balcony could be better, bigger

8,8 Excellent
Pros: I’ve stayed with my Son., he’s 16. Apartment was warm and clean, good location as well,100 mtrs from the slopes. Maybe breakfast could be better, but overall everything was perfect, we had a great time. Will definitely recommend it.
Cons: The breakfast was poor. Very little choice, and not really good quality ingredients.
4,6 Okay
Pros: We arrived late due to bad weather conditions. The road was closed for 12 hours. I emailed to you several times regarding our problem, no answer. The receptionist could not speak english. The room was cold and the bed was very old and dirty. The room was not cleaned and the towels not changed in the four days we stayed in the hotel. The last night prior to our departure i had to ask for new towels. It took some time to convince the receptionist that we needed the towels immediately to take shower.
Cons: In general it was very difficult to communicate with the staff.

7,5 Good
Cons: I made my booking reservation choosing 2 adults and 1 child capacity when we arrived the hotel was not inform about my kid. Finally they solve the problem but when we check out I saw additional charge for my kid! This was not correct and we will not visit that hotel anymore.
4,2 Okay
Pros: The room size was ok for 3 people but just this. Everything was outdated, the dust cleaned itself . If you check now over the hair dryer in the bathroom it will be still there... The only thing we like were the view from the window/balcony /you have to pay extra for it/.
Cons: The price we paid was way to high for what we got. Everything outdated and badly maintained. Nobody bothers to clean the steps to the hotel for at least 5 days/we stay 5 days/. No kettle in the room. The breakfast was take it or leave it, especially for vegans. The place has no idea of healthy food options except the yogurt and the fruits /only 2-3 types/. No nuts, dry fruit, alternative to white bread, caw milk or butter, or proper coffee. The only place to get espresso was the lobby bar -a floor down where you have to queue again... The water for the tea in the breakfast room is getting cold after the 5 person as it is no proper machine for hot water... Often no available tables to sit for breakfast even at 8-8.30. Very disappointed of the place and the resort /total chaos!/
4,2 Okay
Pros: Nothing only the view
Cons: No good fridge in the room.The sofabed was a disaster you cant sleep on it.The room was dirty and much more bad things
7,1 Good
Pros: Very large and very clean rooms with fantastic views of the forest.
Cons: That the bar closed very early in the evening (at 10) and the massage was cancelled due to illness of the only masseuse they had
6,3 Good
Pros: The location in the forest, a little bit far from the ski slopes, but it was a ski shuttle which compensates this disadvantage. Staff was friendly, facilities was ok.
Cons: The cleaning personal was a disaster. 5 days we stayed and during this time no vacuuming the room, no refreshing the shower gel and soap, the toilet paper. Only what was at the beginning! And only emptying the garbage, nothing else!!!
7,1 Good
Pros: The location is pretty good if you have a car; otherwise it is located quite far away from the bus station. There is a forest near the hotel. The staff is quite friendly although you need to explicitly ask them for information.
Cons: There aren't any shops around and the prices in the hotel are quite high. The tables and chairs in the restaurant are not very comfortable and not always clean. There are too few TV channels and the quality of the TV set is not very good.
Complex Lucky Pamporovo - Pamporovo - Building
7,6 Good (70 reviews)
6,0 Good

5,8 Okay
Pros: Staff, Food in the restaurant
Cons: SPA, Breakfast
3,3 Mediocre
Pros: Apartment was spacious and bright. There was a hairdryer and an iron.
Cons: It’s super far away from everything, apartment was not clean, kitchen was missing essential items such as knives, shuttle only goes to Studenetz and only 4 times a day, once back; parking was a nightmare and breakfast was bad.
5,0 Okay
Pros: The staff is doing their best to help but the owner should improve the facilities. The food was delicious despite the fact we waited more than 45 minutes for a salad. The apparrments are warm and spacious, but no one cleaned our room for 3 days. There is much more space and retractable beds/sofas so in room for 4 you can actually fit 3/4 more persons on the sofas. If we knew we would have booked smaller apparrment.
Cons: The spa was miserable. Mold in corners and in the jacuzzi. Not all showers had hot water. We found broken glass in the jacuzzi which seemed not to be cleaned for a while. The spa is in separate building so you have to get out of the hotel. The breakfast consisted of 2 pieces of bread, 2 slices of salami and one slice of cheese and there was no expresso coffee. The fireplace was stacked with wood but after we got the fire running it started bringing smoke back in the room, the fire alarm did not got on which was disturbing as the room was full of smoke. We waited for 90 minutes for our order fish, lamb and 3 salads and the salads came last.
7,3 Good
Pros: The location is near forest and views are fine. The facilities offered are fitted to expectation for leisure. The staff is friendly and eager to help.
Cons: To check and have completed before entrance the kitchen tools.

6,0 Good
Pros: Location and room size, local town had good food.
Cons: Breakfast was not heated up beans were just out of a can and put on a warm tray ridiculous. Bacon not cooked at all . All bread was stale , and milk off . On all 4 days of our stay
9,0 Excellent
Pros: I liked the location, the staff was very friendly but unfortunately not very able to answer some of the questions I had regarding the ski slopes and activities they offer. I liked the room and the fact that when an extra bed was requested as per booking it was provided. I liked also the organisation of the NY party!
Cons: As mentioned above I think the staff could have been more up to date with the ski facilities and options in the resort.
3,3 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing to impress
Cons: Swimming pool water very cold, jacuzzi with the size and looks of a muddy puddle, room dirty with very strong smell, holes and stains on the walls, could hear all the noises and conversations from the rooms around us, literally, we were waking up and falling asleep as if we were all sharing the same space; cannot order and eat proper food unless you are a part of a package, I.e no restaurant on site, breakfast very basic, the bread and cakes always old and never fresh, the breakfast on 1/01 was made of the leftovers from new year’s eve. Very poor service. The lobby is made to look posh but this is where it all ends.
7,0 Good
Pros: The room was ok.
Cons: Breakfast - the worse breakfast for a 4* hotel. There is diversity but everything is low cost. The fact that bowling was accessible only for kids older than 10 years, I did not see this facility advertised like this.
