This hotel has been our home away form home for the last week while my partner and I came snowboarding. The room is amazingly cosy, very spacious, constantly warm (a welcome break from the pistes) and the location is a short walk to the gondola (or a free coach service). It's situated just far enough out of the bustling main...

We stayed at Hotel Lion as park of a January Ski Holiday. The booking was cheap so we weren't expecting much! On arrival we were pretty impressed! Really big clean rooms and good service. The food is OK, edible but not very exciting. We ate at the hotel for all the breakfasts and 4/6 dinners. They do a full cooked...

Very clean and cosy place to stay. Staff very helpful and food tasty and lots of choice. Bar prices ok and not too expensive in comparison to local bars. Lovely open wood burning fire in the lobby that gives the place a real cosy feel. Pool is great but spa treatments are extra priced.

I have traveled with my wife and my son (1 year old) from 30 December till 3rd of January. The hotel is around 8 minutes walk from Bansko ski lift. Breakfast and dinner overall was ok. I did not enjoy the beds witch are quite old and the doors that are slammed very often and was a big noise.

We stayed at the Lion Hotel for a week as we booked a travel package through Crystal Ski. The rooms were really large and the bathroom was big and clean. We had half board which included breakfast and dinner and there was always plenty of food. The staff in the restaurant area were super friendly and always smiling. I used...

I booked the Hotel Lion through Neilson, it was what I'd call mid-range in their prices however I found the accommodation excellent. My room (306) was spacious, very clean, nicely decorated and had an great view from the balcony - especially in the morning with the sun rising over the mountains. Staff were all helpful and spoke more than enough...

This hotel is the perfect choice for a family vacation or if you plan a trip with friends. The rooms are big, but yet somehow you feel very comfortable and cozy inside. It's very close to the sky lift and perfectly located up the hill from the centre of Bansko. The receptionists are all nice and the food as they...
