The Best Places to Stay in Bovorets, Bulgaria
Borovets is one of the Bulgarian ski resorts that are located close to Sofia, the capital, and it offers a wide range of slopes and opportunities to practice winter sports. If you have chosen it for your next ski vacation, make sure to choose the accommodations that best suit your needs. Here’s a list of the best hotels, spa hotels, apartments, and guest houses to choose from in Borovets.
Hotel Yastrebets Wellness & Spa is all you could want from a ski hotel because it is set directly at the Yastrebets ski slope, and the lift for the private Yastrebets 3 ski slope in front is free of charge if you stay at the hotel. Choose your room carefully because some of them have a Finnish sauna. After a long day out, you can relax in the spa center (including a steam bath, a Finnish sauna, herbal therapies) or unwind in the piano bar. You can switch seasons hopping from the ice fountain to the sauna and back to the hot tub. Hotel Yastrebets is open in the summer as well, when you can enjoy the greenery of the pine woods and practice yoga, mountain biking, or archery.
If you want to hide away from the hustle and bustle of Borovets and enjoy peaceful evenings by the fireplace, Hotel Lion is the perfect place for you. This recently renovated hotel has an indoor swimming pool with a large window that overlooks the snow outside, as well as a sauna and an assortment of exotic massages at the Zen Spa Center. If you haven’t experienced the beneficial effect of the herbal sauna, now is the time to inhale aromas from nature. The lobby bar has many fireplaces, so you can enjoy one to yourself, and the hotel has a traditional restaurant with Bulgarian cuisine and a special program showcasing Bulgarian traditions and dance.
If you prefer to stay at a self-catered apartment during your ski trip, Royal Plaza offers vacation accommodations for rent. The kitchenette is fully equipped with a fridge, a kettle, and all you need to cook a basic meal. The aparthotel is located right near the Borovets Ski center and one mile from the Yastrebets Express Lift.
