The Club Hotel Yanakiev

Travel Feature

A brief history our 4 * hotel of choice, the Club-hotel Yanakiev and why we choose this hotel.

The construction on the hotel was started by the family Yanakiev in June 2006 and was finished in December 2007. Georgi Yanakiev-Senior wanted to leave something for his son and grandsons, and also to Borovets and to his native town Samokov. Something which will hopefully show the small contribution by the family in the development of motor sports in the country and especially to Samokov and Borovets.

When turning 16 years of age, the promising future violinist Georgi, left the violin and took part in and won his first motocross race with the special permission of the local police chief. During the years to follow Georgi Yanakiev - Senior became national champion in 125 cc and president of The Motor Sport Federation.

In the hotel is a small family museum, just a glimpse into the Yanakiev amazing achievements and activities by with photos, trophies and other memorabilia.

The Hotel Yanakiev was to become the centre for the Bulgarian rally for both formal in informal meetings, Loeb and Elena won The WRC Rally Bulgaria.

Club-hotel "Yanakiev" now is the centre for the Eco Rally (electric cars), a place for Basketball, Volleyball, football team training and of course snow sports!

The hotel is now under the directorship of his son Georgi Yanakiev-Junior the now hotel manager. He is ex rally driver several years national champion in Rally and Closed circle in class 1600 cm3. He is highly respected by the International sport community and FIA Presidents Jean Todt and Max Mosley.

As you can see from the above, this is why we chose this hotel above all the others. An amazing and rich sporting heritage and unrivalled facilities for the area and a passion for motorsport makes this hotel truly unique.
