Overview - hotel description - Hotel Lion description

Nestled amongst a forest of pine trees, in one of the most beautiful spots in Borovets, the highly recommended Hotel Lion. It's set in a peaceful location, with a 15-20 minute walk to the town centre and main ski lift - but you can always hop on the free shuttle bus instead.

Offering excellent service, the Lion is stylishly decorated throughout and has great facilities too. The rooms are a good size and decorated in simple but modern style. The indoor pool and newly refurbished wellness area is the perfect retreat after a long day on the mountain, with saunas, steam room, gym and even a relaxation area lined with round pods for you to have a snooze in. In the evenings, you can grab a drink in the bar and relax by the open fire.
