The apartment was as described and there were 6 of us with plenty of space. We ate in most nights and the kitchen had everything we needed for whipping up a feast after skiing. The apartment is modern and every bedroom has a balcony as does the lounge. The views from every window are stunning and you can easily while away the time taking the views in. The apartment was warm too and we never got around to lighting the wood stove!
As for location we thought it was great as were happy walking down into town (about 10 minutes) where everything we needed was there. When we had shopping we took a taxi which cost around 8 levs. The winter supermarket (think it is not open in the summer) was great and had everything else we needed.
Everyone seemed friendly and helpful.
Only suggestion is be careful (above beginners) if you use Ulen ski school however the beginners instructors were great.
Note: we aimed to be in the queue for the gondola by 7.30am and hardly ever had to queue otherwise any later and you could queue for 1-2 hours at best.
Nice apartment with beautiful view, verry clean, near gondola, i can wait to get this year back!!!!!
Late season, no one else around, apartments and hotel virtually to ourselves. We did actually have the pool complex to ourselves. Great apartment, most things you need, Wi-Fi and netflicks so no DVD needed particularly. Lovely hot water and helpful letting agent whenever we rang for their assistance.
Apartment could do with a freshen up overall and a microwave and dishwasher would be really useful but we knew there wasn't either before we arrived. Master bedroom could do with a new mattress as its getting a bit lumpy.
Overall a superb apartment in a great location away from the noise of town but not far to walk or taxi if you really can't face it.
Thanks very much.

We couldn't find the Balcan PMS offices, so I called them and they met us at the apartment.
The Apartments rooms were comfortable, warm & Clean, showers hot.
Short 2-3 min walk to ski road, to ski down to gondola. 10-15 min walk to gondola and The Happy end bar. So your 15 min walk from the main town, clubs bars etc, but this makes the apartment nice and quiet. Its was vey easy to get Taxi's too and from town if you didn't feel like a walk.
Would recommend this apparent to a group or like us a family with 3 teenagers.
Good location clean good showers spacious nice view
Couple of dogs barking at night but comfy beds and slept well
Pool area and jacuzzi ok hotel bar very cheap and friendly
The Balkan hotel office has now moved and is not facing the kempinski so we had to ring them they arrived promptly and were helpful and showed us round
Would stay here again was 5 Levs from gondola if you don't fancy walking would recommend curry night and massage at the avalon hotel which were both excellent
Also a spa day in the kempinski hotel for 20 pounds
