Overall a lovely place to stay, if I could add anything it would be nice to have a drying room for the gear rather than trying to hang or position wet gear near to the heaters without causing a fire hazard. But we coped and it did not spoil anything. Thank you for the opportunity and would gladly stay there again and may well do.

Really nice apartment, ideally situated for the gondola, ski rental, restaurants and supermarket.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Bansko and stayed in this apartment. This is our third trip to Bansko and have stayed in various apartments in Bansko Royal Towers and this is one of the nicest we have seen.

Really good sized and well equipped apartment in an excellent location. Restaurants, supermarkets, ski rental and gondola all very close.

Would highly recommend it.

Superb apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 from York and stayed here over Xmas 2016. The apartment is spacious, warm, comfortable and has everything you need to enjoy the stay. It's really close to the gondola and some amazing bars and restaurants. Definitely returning to Bsnsko and hopefully this apartment if it's free!

good place for skiing and to go to the restaurant,the apartment is very confortable , only the TV is bot connected to oversea station, and an oven and dishwasher would have been nice to do some real cooking.

The only problem, i had has nothing to do with the apartment is the queue on the gondola in the morning, on the Sunday 3hrs, monday 2 hrs then it was 1 hr every morning ....that is a long time standing up in the outside paying 58 lv !!!!!.

Owner's Response: Hi Gerad and thanks for the review. I'm glad you liked the apartment and its location. We will ask our agent to see if they can re-tune the TV and we will look at providing an oven - although we do generally find that most of out guests enjoy eating out as its so cheap! As far as the queues - these are out of our control and dependant upon time of year booked - as at any popular ski resort. Thanks and hope to see you next year.

Great location, large and we'll equipped.

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best apartments I have stayed in for skiing in Bansko. Located very close to the Gondola and with a ski hire shop just below. From leaving the apartment it takes 10 minutes to collect our boots and skis and arrive at the Gondola. So nice not having to drive and park. Natasha from Barrow was very helpful, showed us around and helped us park the car in the car park. Supermarket and small shop just a few minutes walk. Will stay again.

About Sue Hannon

We live in York, England and have 3 children - Oliver aged 13, Amelia aged 17 and Will aged 21. We love skiing and after visiting Bansko a few years ago we decided that it was such a lovely family ski resort that we would like to buy an apartment there. We usually manage to ski in Bansko at least once a season as it's such a safe, friendly experience without the hassle and excessive cost associated with other European resorts. We also love to visit Bankso in the summer when we go mountain biking and make use of the lovely outdoor pool.

Sue Hannon purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Sue Hannon chose Bansko

We chose to buy a property in Bansko after visiting the resort a few years ago and falling in love with it. We soon realised that this resort was moving very fast into becoming one of the best ski resorts in Europe. It offered value for money whilst providing excellent brand new modern lift facilities and well designed and managed pistes. The Bulgarians are investing heavily year after year in making Bansko an excellent family ski resort. We also loved the contrast between the modern ski area and the very quaint old town of Bansko with its cobbled streets and churches, you really feel like you are stepping back in time when you take the short walk to the town square.

What makes this apartment unique

The Bansko Royal Towers was our first choice of apartments to buy primarily due to its great location to the ski slopes. You can practically ski door to door. With all the other facilities that the complex offers we feel it makes for a fantastic holiday. We also enjoy the short walk into the old town of Bansko and eating at one of the many Mehanas, prices in Bansko are very reasonable and we feel there is no better value holiday in any other of Europe's ski resorts. Every year there are more and more quality bars and restaurants set up and the majority are within a 5 minute walk of the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick message to say a personal thank you for allowing us to stay in your apartment, and also the recommendations re ski and childcare. We had a fantastic time, made all the better with peace of mind having Venessa looking after our daughter. And she had an amazing time learning to ski as well. Hopefully will be booking again when we next head back to bansko. All the best, Ruth & family x

Special interest holidays:

Mountain biking is becoming ever more popular year on year thanks to a dedicated group of MTB Expats who are carefully mapping and grading trails and downhill runs throughout the region and local area.

Good quality full suspension bikes can easily be hired, contact us for information on costs etc. The owner, Roger, and son Will tried some of the marked downhill routes on hired full suspension MTB in 2014 - best downhill ever ridden!

Will is part of the Newcastle University Cycle Club.


Looking on a map, our apartment is a very long way from a beach but it does have a lovely heated indoor pool and a heated outdoor pool for summer use.

When we use the apartment in Summer, we usually take a few days out and drive down to Kavala in Greece for a few days by the sea. Its only a 2.5 hour drive.


The main airport servicing Bansko is at Sofia International, a 2 hour transfer from Bansko. Flights are available from the UK with the following Airlines:

Easyjet - Gatwick, Stansted & Manchester,

Wizz Air from Luton,

BA from Heathrowe & Glasgow,

FlyBe from East Midlands,

Bulgaria Air from Heathrowe.


Sofia Airport is 95 miles.

Plovdiv Airport is 80 miles.

Thessaloniki Airport is 120 miles.

2 hour transfers from the airports can be arranged with English speaking drivers or you can pick up a hire car and drive to Bansko. It's a pretty straight forward drive and Sat Navs are now available for Bulgaria to assist.

Further Details:

You will be met on arrival buy our English speaking representative who will show you to your apartment and answer any questions you may have. The apartment is a 10 minute walk down into Bansko Old Town where you will find plenty of traditional Bulgarian Mehanas where you can eat and drink with the locals. The best and liveliest apres ski bar is the Happy End bar near the gondola station which has live music on weekend nights. The Pirin mountains have a range of mountain bike trails that are being developed for summer use.
