I live in student accommodation and that is luxury to this "hotel". There was a hotel directly across from our balcony called "heaven", so i'm guessing we were in hell. The pool was hardly ever cleaned and was always full of local children after school times. The beach bar was lovely and the location was perfect for young adults, but... More

The Rila is not a hotel but a converted apartment block, it has NO facilities what so ever. Their website boast a pool but this is a public pool attached to the neighbouring casino to... More

When the bus left us off at the Rila, my partner and I felt a little dissapointed - the hotel had a simple sign to the side of the front door, we thought we were entering a block of flats! The staff at reception were lovely and tried very hard to communicate in good english. We were lucky with our... More

The Rila hotel is basic but good enough for the price. The bad thing is hotel management. As we arrived the manager didn't want to give our group the rooms although we paid and had vouchers with us, and she expecting to pay more, as I understood Bulgarian, and trying to double cross us, giving us double room instead apartment....
