“Cosy, Clean, and Good Value”
Reviewed 15 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Chalet Sofia was very cosy and clean and had a lot of charm, and you would struggle to get better at this price.

It was a short walk to a good ski rental place and to the main gondola to the higher Markudjik ski area (which was the better area). It was a bit of a slog in uncomfortable ski boots to the lower slopes near hotel Rila, but this would've been ok if you left your boots at a rental place and changed into them on the way.

The Chalet was a very short walk from some good restaurants. I recommend 'Vicky's' for breakfast and 'Hunter's' for dinner. The Hunter's restaurant is fantastic and does some great local food. They cook a lot of it on the open fire in the middle of the restaurant. There was a 10% discount card in Chalet Sofia for Hunters as it is connected to the same management company, which was handy!

The Chalet itself was great for the four of us, but it would be a bit difficult with six, especially as we found the hot water running low after four showers. Also note that if one of the twin bedrooms isn't private - you walk through it to get to the master bedroom. For four it was absolutely fine. Plenty of space for four to sit and chill out in the evening. The sauna (with plenty of space for four) was a great touch - easy to use and great for soothing those tired skiing legs. It was nice to have a covered area out front as well where you could shed the wet ski gear in a sheltered spot before heading inside.

The Chalet was well heated and plenty warm.

Only negative thing is that the bedding was basic and the beds were hard. However, we found that if you skied hard all day and had a couple of beers with dinner, sleeping was not a problem!

“Rustic but Comfy”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Now, don't expect luxury here. It's rustic and simple, like a chalet in the woods, but is situated within an easy walk to the ski town center of Borovets with many restaurants and shops. The chalet can sleep six, but it would be very tight in the livingroom/kitchen area. Six of our friends (2 adults and 4 teenagers) rented the chalet next door, similar to this one, and scheduling bathroom time was a challenge. There were 4 adults in my group and we were fine. The large, covered front porch made it very comfortable, especially when it rained. The steam room was a fantastic addition.

“EXCELLENT CHALET”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed over Xmas and New Year, 4 friends and there was ample of room.

Excellent chalet in a good location (5 minutes from the slope), very clean and had everything we needed.

We didnt cook in the chalet but was cooker and microwave and all utensils pots and pans and plenty of mugs and glasses.

Sauna was excellent as was TV DVD and WIFI

David was easily contactable and always replied promptly he has also refunded the deposit no issues there.

Would stay again, highly recommended

Thanks
