Where to stay in Borovets

As one of Bulgaria's most popular and oldest ski resorts, Borovets is filled with  hotels and guesthouses featuring comfortable rooms and plenty of amenities. The resort itself is quite compact, so if you stay in any of the larger hotels, you'll be smack dab in the center of the action with easy access to the ski area and restaurants. For a quainter experience, check out a bed and breakfast or one of the private chalets scattered around the countryside just outside town. While these require more of a trek to the slopes and the main part of Borovets, they're cheaper and you'll trade the resort's hustle and bustle for time in the Bulgarian wildnerness.
