"Best in Bansko"
Great location - next to the ski lift, extensive facilities (would benefit from some upgrades soon but still OK) and great staff. Atanassios (the manager) is running a tight ship and one can feel the difference ever since he took over a couple of years ago. Would only consider staying at Kempi if in Bansko.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing hotel to stay"
Great location, service, room, food, facilities, and view - well worth the price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

""5" Star Skiing"
Its a lovely hotel but its not a 5 star hotel. Unfortunately you hear other room doors opening and slamming all the time and its very loud out in the halls and in the other rooms. The spa was truly out of this world and its almost worth a visit just for that, breakfasts were good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Bansko Ski Break"
If an inexpensive ski holiday is what you are after look no further than Bansko. As for accommodation, there is no better place to stay than the Kempinski Grand Arena. Which sits directly opposite the main gondola to ascend the mountain. The hotel on the whole was excellent with large rooms and extensive facilities, including Hamman Steam room and heated […] outdoor pool which is open all year round. I have very few critiscms, but to be constructive I feel the spa areas could be cleaned more often and more thoroughly. Bed linen was spotlessly clean but the bed was untidy after being made and the pillows where poor. Reception seemed to refer every question we had to guests services, who were very helpful. Worthy of a mention is the hotel's boot room and the very helpful chap that looked after us every day (who's name escapes me). We we in Bansko at the end of the season and as a result it was quieter. We experienced no queues, food at the local restaurants was very good and excellent value. We had a feast with two bottles of superb Bulgarian wine for four people and it came to just £90. one thing which may bother some, is the shear number of table dancing bars. Because there presence is so overtly advertised, you may feel like you are wandering through the red light district of Amsterdam. While I was not offended in any way, Bansko should consider toning down the strip bar signage if they would like to attract more families with children. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"The.best hotel in Bansko"
This was the third time we have stayed in this hotel and hopefully it will not be the last! It is very close to the ski gondola and about a 10 - 15 minute walk from the town centre. The staff are very welcoming and the rooms are spotless and comfortable. There are towelling robes provided so that you can wander down to the excellent spa and swimming […] pools. The buffet breakfast was to die for!! Go on, treat yourself!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"5* luxury at a very good price"
We stayed for one night in the Kempinski Grand Hotel in Bansko. The service and location were excellent. It is right next to the ski lift and has excellent spa facilities. We stayed off season so the price was extremely competitive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good hotel close to the ski gondola"
In general hotel has a very good position and it is good organized , but the main function sleeping comfort is far away from good. First of all the room isolation it is so bad that You can hear from all rooms around the shower, walking, TV set, toilet, ... What was worst on Friday and Saturday evenings the "Piano bar" two flours below our room was working […] as a disco from 23 to 03 o'clock and we can not sleep with ear plugs also. I ask reception but they can not do nothing. I have been in other Kempinski hotels more than 10 times and never have such an experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Hotel and Staff"
I attended a destination wedding in Bansko and stayed at the Kempinski hotel. Beautiful location and amenities. Staff was exceptionally pleasant. We had an early morning flight from Sofia before the hotel served breakfast. Without asking, the staff prepared a free packed breakfast for the car ride to the airport. Above and beyond service.Genuine Expedia guest review
it is very good located, very good quality of services , Bansko and all mountain region is very beautiful , there is a gondola with an amazing route , mountain Vihren is a test for climbing so visit Kempinski at Bansko and mark 10 for Bulgaria and KempinskiGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel. The surroundings hoewever, no snow in summertime, are à little depressing because of bad infrastrucure etc. Breakfast is real fine. Service; 5 star level too. We really can recommend this hotel when visiting Bansko.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Tolles 5 Sterne Hotel"
Dieses 5 Sterne Hotel kann man nur empfehlen. Tolles Frühstücksbüffet, aufmerksames und freundliches Servicepersonal zeichnen dieses Hotel aus. Ansprechende Poole und schöne Saunalandschaft. Idealer Ausgangspunkt für Wanderurlauber, die Gondelbahn ist unmittelbar neben dem Hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
別の地でKempinskiには何度か宿泊したが、全て快適で会った（料金はそれなりに安価とは言えないが）。今回も期待に沿うものであった。 街の中心部からはやや離れているが、散歩がてらと思えば十分に徒歩圏内。 Winter sports 目的の場合にはropewayに隣接しているので理想的。 駐車料金無料。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"hôtel 5 étoiles???"
Pour les standards bulgares peut-être pouvons-nous classer cet hôtel dans les 5 étoiles mais pas pour nos standards à nous qui avons voyagé à travers le monde. Il manque de raffinement, d'élégance et d'impeccabilité pour pouvoir mériter cette cote. Nous avons apprécié notre séjour sans avoir été enchantés. Les prix sont BEAUCOUP trop élevés pour l'offre. En […] revanche, l'hôtel est bien situé pour accéder rapidement aux pistes de ski. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Mukava hotelli hyvällä palvelulla ja mukavuuksilla. Saapuessamme vastaanoton virkailija (nainen) esitteli hotellin ja otti meidät vastaan todella hyvin. Huone tilava ja näköala vuorille rentouttava,täysi aamiainen kaikilla höysteillä. Kylpylä ja hoidot hyvät sisältäen Suomalaisen Saunan!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Name of the game - Comfortable & Elegance"
26/08/2014 Yehuda F F Caesarea, Israel
Writing about "Kempinski" is unnecessary. There are already plenty of reviews and praise regarding this chain, one more or one less, would not make any difference. I am writing this review as appreciation and gratitude to the hotel staff !! I had never met such a heartwarming staff all over the world. 55 years of experience, slept in thousands of hotels, most of them four or five stars all over the world - and I should admit: never met such behavior and dedication from the employees like in this hotel in Bansko. The hotel itself is elegant and comfortable. spacious rustic style rooms, elegant lobby, chef restaurants, big garden with 3-4 pools and tennis yard and the price? pricing is very affordable. There are lots of activity options, for inside or outside:- Ski, Hiking, Biking, Gym, Tours, Spas and more. Don`t miss it.

Just next to the mountains with a great view. You get it all. Nice large clean rooms. Super restaurants. Best service ever. I was here for mountain biking and they have descent Specialized 29" you can borrow for free. And all of that.... at a really fair price
21/08/2014 travelwander35 Bulgaria
This trip was for Family over from UK Four nights Stay Two Deluxe doubles mountain view. Wonderful hotel all of us enjoyed so much so our Son in law and Daughter want to go back in the winter and next summer. Rooms well equipped very comfortable and clean room service and turn down service very good. Spa facilities pools and grounds excellent. All staff lovely helpful and caring. Breakfast as always in Kemplinski hotels excellent everything you would expect from a hotel of this stature. One slight problem large group of young people checked in on the last day we where staying they where rude obnoxious and intimidating around the pools and spa at night they where very drunk causing a lot of disturbance into the early hours of the morning. I was assured by the reception staff the matter would be addressed however as we left that morning I do not know. A minor matter but upsetting.
"Thoroughly relaxed and spoilt"
19/08/2014 Melly C Kardzhali, Bulgaria
We stayed here while visiting the jazz festival and I've nothing but high praise for this hotel. Staff treated us expertly and everything was peaceful even though the hotel was full. Plenty of space around the 3 pools and the spa area was very relaxing with beautiful scents in the sauna rooms. Outdoor pools were big enough to swim in but the indoor pool was usually empty. Also the jacuzzi's are the most powerful I have experienced. Everything was clean and the rooms big and luxurious. Really felt like I should have paid a lot more to stay in this classy hotel. The breakfasts were the best we've seen in Bulgaria - every type catered for, from full fried including baked beans and hash browns, to wide variety of continental options. Omelettes and pancakes made in front of you to your choice of ingredients, a huge choice of muesli, yogurts, fruit, jams, honey, croissants and many kinds of bread, even gluten free! Wide selection of teas and good coffee too. I had a different breakfast everyday but after 5 days I still hadn't tried everything!
"Not worth the money during the summer"
19/08/2014 VeselaKPlovdiv Plovdiv
The hotel is really beautiful and with excellent location ( if you visit it in winter ). But during the summer the hotel operates with minimal staff. We were checked in at 5 o'clock instead of 2 o'clock, our room was made up at 5-6 o'clock in the evening and the service in the whole hotel was very slow. They decided to clean the outside jakuzzi at 4 o'clock when it was full of people and a man came and told me that i should leave the jakuzzi because he had work to do. Otherwise Kempinski is wonderful hotel, pools are nice, but it is too expensive for service it offers. Perhaps during the winter it is different when the hotel operates with full staff.
"The BEST Hotel we have stayed in!"
18/08/2014 QualityAssurance143 Vale of Glamorgan, United Kingdom
What a stunning Hotel. The staff were amazing! If you ever visit Bansko, I highly recommend staying at the Kempinski. If you are staying elsewhere, you can visit the spa, which has a great gym and an indoor pool or even eat in the restaurant, which serves great food. The views overlooking the mountain are stunning. The location is perfect, just a stone throw from the Gondola!
18/08/2014 melinash Plovdiv, Bulgaria
This is our favorite hotel in BG. Every thing is truly perfect! Very luxury, excellent accommodation, service, cleaning, very comfortable rooms, personal is always helpful, delicious food! We are there more 10 times and every time our stay is better and better! I spent my private holidays here and I am very happy! The next weekend I will be there again. Thanks my friends from hotel Kempinski Grand Arena Bansko! The best BG hotel! Kind regards! Maria Shopova.
"Best location for ski lovers"
17/08/2014 Ovidiu_C Bucharest
Although I've been there one week ago, in the summer when the pace is very slow in the resort, the hotel services are at the highest level. The restaurants are very good, the breakfast is one of the better one I've ever seen, and the location is perfect: just steps away from ski lift, perfect for ski lovers. I think there are now better locations in Bansko for skiing than this one.
"Good located hotel with terrible service"
17/08/2014 Lyubomir L Sofia, Bulgaria
We visited Bansko Jazz Festival. Me and my family for the first time stay at this hotel. The hotel has a great lobby, nice pool and spa but for the summer when the hotel is not full. I can not imagine in the winter after skiing how you can manage to be in this little sauna? The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds. But breakfast was the most horrible !!!! The man At the entrance met with "In which room number you are accommodated" and "Welcome", you must find table for all of you!!!! Walk into the huge hall uncomfortable and I noticed that no table ready for use. All tables was with food residue !!!! I handled the organization of waiters preparation table! After 15 minutes we had a table, but while we were at the bar for food on our table were seated the other guests! We had to wait another 15 minutes! Second breakfast we were prepared, after waiting 15 minutes Asked prepare table, we left a lot of our belongings on the table! The food was ordinary. I would like to ask the hotel manager, Is it normal guest to organize the staff in the restaurant for breakfast or it's part of the service ?????
17/08/2014 Pablo G Tel Aviv, Israel
Amazing hotel, great service, room facilities outstanding, only cons is that moving from the rooms to some of the areas needs to walk a lot or even use stairs which in case of carrying luggage is kind of difficult, but this con is just nothing comparing with all the pros. highly recommended
