Location - where is Hotel Samokov

Should you wish to check out the town, the Samokov is well placed for a wander. It’s less than five minutes’ walk to bars like Sunny’s, White Magic and The Harp, or dine at Resmi Bistro, the Happy Duck BBQ or Vicky’s Pizza.

Overview - hotel description - Hotel Samokov description

The Samokov is in a great location - nestled among old pine forests, near the resort centre and opposite the main Yastrebets gondola.

It’s a short walk to shops, bars and restaurants, but there’s so much on-site, you may find yourself rarely venturing out after a day out on the slopes. There’s a huge indoor swimming pool, plus a sauna, steam room, whirlpool and fitness centre. You can also visit shops, bars, a nightclub, bowling alley and games room with billiards and table tennis.

The rooms are basic but they've got great views of the town and mountains.

You can also enjoy the views while browsing the breakfast and dinner buffets. For a special touch, upgrade to Superior Dining to enjoy four-course dinners from the à la carte menu. There’s also a barbecue terrace and bar next to the pool, a sports bar beside the fitness centre and a lobby bar for snacks and drinks throughout the day. Even if you want to go out, you don’t actually have to go out of the hotel, as there’s a nightclub on-site.

It’s not all après though, as the hotel runs its own ski club for children aged between 4 and 7 years, getting them having fun while learning the sport.

This package holiday to Hotel Samokov in Borovets, Bulgaria departs Saturday 12th January 2019, for a 7 night stay on a "half board" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Do you dream of skiing down the same mountains where Bulgarian Kings of old once hunted? Oh, right. Just us then.

Here in Borovets you’ll experience a resort steeped in tradition and culture, and of course the fantastic skiing opportunities you’d expect to find at Bulgaria’s 1st ski region. In the charming village centre yo...
Young skiers will love Borokids Park, where the magic carpet, carousel can help them get to grips with the snow. The message to beginners from the lovely people at Borovets’ Chili Peppers bar is ‘more beer = less fear!’ however we’d highly advise against skiing under the influence, and instead suggest lessons with one of the local ski schools like Hunters and Yanakiev and the Sitnyakovo Royal Residence Ski Way’s wide, gentle slope for some cruisey confidence building. Each of the 3 ski areas offer int...
In spite of Bansko’s up and coming popularity, Borovets remains the party capital of Bulgarian ski resorts, with vibrant nightlife guaranteed as soon as you’re off the slopes. The ever friendly bar hosts at places like Bobby’s and Samokov offer unbelievably cheap local beer, and once the Bulgarian Rakia shots start flowing, you’ll understand why people are back in Borovets year after year. However, in spite of the après ski festivities, Borovets is far from just another ‘lads holiday’ ski destination. I...
