A very disappointing stay! A group of 12 friends, we stayed at the house for 3 nights. The prices of the rooms in the Old house were very high compared to other houses in Bansko, but it was the only house with room still available for 12 persons when we searched for a place to stay around New Years Eve...

We arrived in the small hours of the morning to a warm welcome. We left in the small hours with a hearty breakfast of home cooked food and juices as Mila got up early to make sure we caught our flights. The airline lost our luggage but Mila helped us get it back with phone calls and even driving all... More

The bed which was apparently a standard Bulgarian offering was about 2 inches of padding, nailed to a board - completely inadequate and we had about... More

Really liked this tiny Hotel in the mountain village of Bansko, in the old part of the town. Excellent value for money. We had a room in the very old part of the building, just at the top of the stairs, a very pretty room, quite large with wooden beams and a small window overlooking the rooftops and the mountains....

The room was really clean and comfortable. The guest house is right at the centre of the town, where all the taverns and discos are. And the owner was giving me a ride to the Gondola lift every day, although its a 10 minute walking distance.
