Almost 2 hours waiting for food to be served in hotel restaurant during lunch. Less than half of restaurant is full, so workload shouldn't be a problem. Waiter cannot give any clue about the huge delay. I don't recommend this place!

I was in a trip together with my husband and my 16 years old daughter and we spent only one night at this hotel but I was very impressed by the quality of services, room was very clean, with a very nice view. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and we've been spoiled by the chef...outstanding dishes, both local... More

Stayed at the Grand Hotel Balvanyos for 4 days. it was a pleasant stay, we got a suite as we had a 2 year old with us. the suite is very good size, clean, relatively recently refurbished, but nothing impressive about it. The staff is friendly in spite of the difficulties speaking either Romanian or English. The surroundings are great.

It is a very nice hotel in the middle of nature, with breathtaking view. The hotel looks very good, the rooms are very big, clean and very nice staff. The air is very clean and a lot of stuff to do. Near is the Saint Ana Lake were you can swim and enjoy the sun, or you can take a... More

Great hotel, very relaxing and the staff was very welcoming. The room was excellent, cozy big bed, with a very big balcony and the view was breath-taking. Although the road was very bumpy, it was worth the effort. The silence and birds singing in the morning were the icing on the cake. As a minus, the tv was too small... More

The building is nice, the surroundings are fantastic but...no AC in the rooms, no swimming pool as expected for a 4 star hotel, our guide was Romanian but he has huge difficulties to communicate with the locals because lots of personnel do not speak Romanian (and that's in Romania!) and the most important and scary thing is that the hotel...

It can be a little difficult to reach the hotel due to bumpy road but once there it totally worth it. The hotel has a high location with astonishing view of the surroundings. Because if a bit far from the other accommodation places of the area you can have a well-deserved moment of intimacy and enjoy the nature. Rooms are... More

Location: I arrived through the bumpy road from Lake Sf. Ana - once you get out of the forrest, it is the first hotel you see - easy to spot. I suppose there is an easier way to get to the hotel from Balvanyos itself. Room: I had a nice, quite large room, just above the entry into the hotel,... More

It's a great hotel, great rooms, very good location, I would say the 4 star would be realistic only if they would have a pool. So for me is only 3 star. Breakfast OK, comfortable beds, good service, excellent location. Too expensive for RO

The hotel is situated in the middle of the forest, is an oasis of peace and tranquillity far away from the noise of the cities. The area is very clean, with no pollution at all. The staff was very helpful, careful and polite. I reccomend this hotel both for summer and winter, I will definitely would like to return in... More
