Where to stay in Bansko

To make the most of Bansko's ski- and outdoor-oriented atmosphere and attractions, try staying at an upscale hotel featuring an on-site spa. While these upscale hotels can be pricey, they come well-equipped with indoor pools, restaurants, and a host of other features. For a more moderate price tag, book a mid-range guesthouse in the style of a classic alpine chalet to embrace the mountain spirit.
