            Great food and spa.

            The Hotel is awful regarding guests who enjoy skiing. There are not facilities to support ski enthusiasts: no ski room, no hotel entrance with ski equipment, the ski shuttle (a big bus) brings the skiers far away from the gondolas' entrance, so the skiers have to carry the whole ski equipment about 500-800 meters up further to the ticket stands. Above all, the hotel staff is unkind, i.e. totally unaware and unhelpful towards guests' needs. There are plenty of problems with some of the rooms such as - weak heating, hot water supply, toilet plumbing drainage... The conclusion - if you go to Bansko for skiing DO NOT CHOOSE THIS HOTEL.

            The 2 bed apartment was very nicely decorated.

            The staff were very unfriendly. The breakfast was practically inedible and the only coffee they had was powdered. The showers leaked all over the bathroom floor and the kitchenette only had 4 glasses - no cutlery, plates, mugs, pans in fact a very poor excuse for a kitchen so we were never able to eat in! We went there for the ski-ing but no transport was laid on to take us to the gondola and the hotel was on the very edge of the town so a very long walk. Ended up taking taxis for the first few days until we complained and then they provided alternative transport. Hotel restaurant was the worst meal we had and they wouldn't take credit card. Also on leaving the staff were very put out that we wanted to pay our bill by credit card.

            It was my third time to stay in Bansko this summer. I stayed in 3 different hotels. Best Western Florimont is the best one.

            More fruits on breakfast buffet would be a good idea.

            Good food. Pleasant lobby with free Wi Fi. Modern rooms.

            There was a stain on the carpet and the chambermaid couldn't remove it.

            The hotel is easy to find, close to the center of Bansko and the bus station. Very comfortable room and lobby area.

            I had to wait 15 minutes for the chambermaid to check my mini bar before I could check out.

            Very professional reception staff. I mostly enjoyed the outdoor pool area (cocktails are highly recommended) and the Casino. Nice place!

            Good conditions in the hotel. Large room, nice and clean bathroom. We liked the restaurant and bars. I lost my mobile phone in the night bar. In the morning it was on the reception desk-Great! Very helpful staff.

            The SPA is not so big as we expected

            Great place for ski vacation. We liked the restaurant and spa. The rooms are huge and nice decorated. My friends were very happy with children playground.

            The parking places are not enought for all guests.

            I liked the comfort in the room and the professionalism of the stuff

            I didn't like the condition of the fitness center at all and the fact that the earliest time of departure of the organized transport towards the ski tracks was at 0830

            just got back from a lovely holiday in this hotel. The room was clean and nice. They helped us whenever we wanted to. The food was tasteful. It's too far to walk to the Gondola station but there was a shuttle bus which is very good option.

            Nice and cosy rooms, polite staff, without unnecessary disturbing. Definitely one of the good hotels in the area.

            Not enough stuff on the reception desk. We were late accommodated.
