MPM Guinness Bansko, Bulgaria - foyer

MPM Guinness & Spa, Bansko ****

Most guests stay at the Guinness & Spa because of it’s location, literally less than 5 minutes stroll from the Bansko gondola so you can spend more of your ski holiday on the slopes rather than the daily commute. Just set back from the high street you’re not bothered by any noise either, so really it’s in a great spot. It’s also a great vantage point for some spectacular views of the Pirin Mountain range (make sure you ask for this at reception).

The rooms are particularly spacious and are spotless, being cleaned regularly. They’re also well-equipped, each with it’s own kitchenette as well as all the usual mod-cons such as a hair-dryer and plenty of places to dry your ski gear . If you fancy stocking your kitchen then there is a Carrefour supermarket located in the mall next door.  Alternatively there’s a good choice of breakfast provided. Outside of the rooms, the hotel offers a small pool, a sauna, and of course (as the name suggests) a good choice of spa facilities. In the same mall there’s a ski depot so you’ve not too far to go to collect your equipment.

There is Wifi in the main lobby area which is free for all guests to use although it does struggle with capacity during the peak weeks of the season. If you prefer to be connected in your room then you can purchase a daily pass at a reasonable price in the region of £4 for 2 days.

Our guests tell us that there’s a really good atmosphere at the Guinness & Spa, there’s a good communal area in the atrium where everyone congregates around the circular fireplace, which is served by a decent bar and a lot of our guests spend many evenings here. There’s also a popular terrace bar which has some superb mountain views.
