The Symbol of Borovets Resort -
the Rila Hotel!

The four-star Rila Hotel, with its close proximity to the ski slopes (the classic ski-in/ski-out location), is the most impressive hotel in Borovets. The hotel provides perfect holidays for any age and during any season. After a massive renovation in 2015, the Rila Hotel welcomes all its guests with a brand new design and a modern alpine-style ambiance. Since October 2017 the hotel offers to its guests SUPERIOR rooms and apartments with elegant alpine design and since September 2019 new SIGNATURE romms and apartments in elegant boho style.

Great New Year Ski Holiday 

We will definitely be returning here for another trip. If you are wanting a holiday in Borovets, Bulgaria then the Rila hotel is definitely the place to stay. GoPlaces546318, 07 Jan 2022

They made us feel like princesses

I've been thinking about writing this review for a couple of years now... I've stayed in Rila more than 10 times now and just got back from my last visit. This is my favorit hotel, not just in Borovetz and not just in Bulgaria. This is where I stay, when I want to be taken care of and feel special. I really don't know how they do it each and every time, especially because this is a very big hotel, but they do :) The staff is a group of the nicest people, you will ever meet. The management is always thinking of ways to make every stay different, special and better than the last. I like to book days, that are not in the ski season, for family vacations, romantic getaways or girls weekends. Every person, that I take there, wants to come back again and again, haha. I want to share with you the highlights from this weekend. I went there with my best two friends for girls timeout. Because a month ago I was there with my husband, I was given a welcome back special bonuses for this stay to choose from. I picked a massage + a single lunch. When we entered the restaurant for dinner, we were not only welcomed by the hostess, but also by the "food manager" ( I don't know what exactly is his job title, but I could tell that he was "the boss" there) and he told us that they have planned a special lunch for us tomorrow and in what timeframe to come to the main restaurant for it. When we did, we saw that we were the only invited guests. There were more hotel employees than us and I can't even imagine how many people were in the kitchen waiting for our order. We were given menus that I'm sure they have created especially for us and we could order whatever we choose from them. 3 salads, 2 soups, 5 main dishes and 3 desserts were in the list. The man that served us, was extremely polite and with a smile on his face all the time. He had made that impression on me during my previous stays as well. He encouraged us to try everything out from the menu, which we almost did, and even offered us to pack our desserts to go, when we told him that we were just too full to eat them Needless to say that we felt like VIP guests or even royalties. At 3pm, when we went to the SPA for our massages, three masseurs were waiting for us and they escorted us in line to the rooms downstares that they work in. Each of us got a great back massage. After that I stayed in the thermal area and may I add that I was the onlyone in there, haha. Like this was my personal SPA. Something that I've experienced several times at that hotel when I go to the SPA during Sunday afternoon or Monday-Thursday. This Saturday for example, the SPA area was full, so my advice is to book your stays for nights between Sunday-Thursday (not in high season), if you like having all the saunas and pool for yourself, like I do. And you should definitely book your stay at this hotel! I wanted to tell you about our wonderful summer family vacation in Rila this year, the great free activities for kids that they had added to our stay, the awesome Yoga instructor they had, even about the amazing level of food quality and variety, but this review got too big and I assume that you can find those pointed out in many of the other reviews. If these words are read by any of the staff and management of Rila, I want to say: "Thank you all! I can't wait for my next visit". -

You've done a fantastic job to attract and provide a 5 star service!

Firstly the locatbion is superb….. Secondly, the cuisine is above average Bulgarian all inclusive level. Your personnel are really tuned and proactive, we've never had to ask for something, they've prolonged working hours for families with babies and it's really valuable. We've seen families with 2-3-4 kids and all of them got special attention in the Seasons restaurant. The food has always been different (except breakfast) and dietetic, really well prepared and served. Finally, the SPA and pool - amazing experience! Swimming in a chill sunny pool with a baby or having a personal workout is great - clean water, lots of space to stay and a smart split for swimming and fun areas. The SPA left a very positive experience - compact and spacious with an amazing chill zone, several saunas help to keep distance. So to summ it up - I've been living in Bulgaria for 13 years and it's the first time I see such a European and Alpine quality. Keep on rocking guys and best wishes - you are on the right path!. - Victor and Elmira​, 20 July 2021​​

Absolutely loved our stay at Hotel Rila. The hotel is modern, clean and has all the facilities you'd need. The staff is helpful, they all speak English - including at the restaurant and SPA, and the location is the best you can get. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious, the beds were comfy to sleep in, the bathroom was big, with a good shower - great water pressure. The heat in the room was a bit hard to get at the right temperature, but we managed. We had half board, buffet breakfast and buffet dinner - the food was really good and plenty, diverse enough to always eat something else in 3 days. The staff is very efficient, and helpful. We did not try the swimming pool, but the massage I had at the SPA was great, for half the price in western countries. I got a nice ski instructor from Boro Sport Center, and the facilities for storing, renting and purchasing ski passes are great. Also, you can pay by card anywhere in Borovets - which was amazing. If you do need cash, there's an ATM in the hotel lobby and you can also exchange money there. Will always pick Rila for our skiing trips in Borovets! - Sorina C17 Feb 2021​, TripAdvisor 

Skiing holiday

Everything was great. We enjoyed our stay in Signature room with beautiful slope view. The food was delicious with various options to choose from. The pool, jacuzzi and spa were great relaxation after long skiing day. The hotel is very clean, staff is very kind and we felt safe thanks to the Covid-19 measures which were implemented by the hotel management. We will definitely come back! - Natasa JFebruary 2021, TripAdvisor

Hotel Rila during COVID-19

Great hotel, very clean with amazing view from 7th floor. Near-by the hotel great slopes for 3-4 hours walk trip (great couples) Managed well with covid-19 restriction. Spa center offers great services. - michaelkG7387IP, 21 Oct 2020, TripAdvisor

Be back next year!

Just returned from a weeks holiday in Borovets, staying at the Hotel Rila. The hotel is beautiful, warm & friendly, with excellent facilities. Warm and cosy bar with lots of seats and a terrace bar on 2nd floor looking out on to the slopes. Spa centre in hotel includes a pool, jacuzzi, steam rooms, saunas and treatments are available. Food in the buffet restaurant is really nice with lots of choice. Ski hire centre is located in the building, staff there are great and very efficient. Great location for slopes, chair lifts, (short walk to gondola), bars and eateries. Second year at the Rila and will be back next year  - Supersint79, January 2020, TripAdvisor

What a hotel!

Can not recommend this hotel enough, lovely, clean and warm with very friendly staff. We had a superior slope room, it was amazing, breakfast and dinner was lovely each day/night with plenty of choice. Drinks in the hotel were cheap and lots to choose from. We missed dinner on our first night due to our flight and we were given a little bag of Sandwiches, fruit, cake bar and water. The hotel is the centre of the resort, close to all ski lifts, ski rental and bars. We enjoyed the pool a few nights during our stay after a Long day of skiing which was very relaxing. An overall brilliant hotel which will hopefully return to in the future. - evr13, January 2020, booking.com 

Very nice hotel

Very nice hotel, friendly staff, nice clean, modern renovated rooms and nice breakfast. There are attractions for children including a swimming pool. The hotel is directly on the slopes in the middle of the ski resort, so the location is perfect. The rooms with slopes view are very nice and I would recommend this hotel any time doesn’t matter the purpose of the stay. - bogevlyuboslav, 11 Aug 2020, TripAdvisor

 

Culinary weekend in Rila Hotel

We had a marvelous stay at the Rila Hotel! The place has been refurbished and everything felt new and clean. The staff have been very welcome and polite. We loved the SPA - the capacity has been increased and it suits the hotel perfectly. The food they surved was delicious. Overall a very nice place to visit with children as there is animation for the small ones and plenty of stuff to do.sklimentov, 18 Aug 2020, TripAdvisor
