This used to be a 5 star hotel and it shows. Very large rooms, a bit outdated by modern standards. Certainly some improvements are required. Nice comfy beds, except maybe for the pillows. Good food, and even the staff was alright. Great swimming pool but maybe too much chlorine. Great views.

PLUS: I went at Mara hotel a few days ago and I liked the pool very much. It is an out door & in door pool and they have a jacuzzi pool also. MINUS: The carpet was very old and the bathtub also very old.

This is an old hotel, but the reception si modern and the rooms are simple but nice and clean with great views from both of the hotel sides.

I stayed for 5 nights for a meeting in the hotel. Quite spacey areas, but the room where good and clean. A little bit worn, but that did not bother me at all. Breakfast was continental, lunch and dinner was every time 3-course menu. No special food, but the atmosphere was fun and you could have a magnificent view over... More

Hardly a three-star hotel. Very dirty. Almost impossible to get any help from the front desk. Dark hallways and facilities because no lights are on. The bathroom smelled like septic. The only bright spot was the restaurant staff. They were helpful and friendly but looked so sad. The views are nice but it goes to waste because the hotel is... More

A collegue and I stayed there for 4 weeks on business. After a long flight to Bucharest and road trip to Sinaia the hotel staff did not speak English. The rooms were comfortable but need a touch up because of stained carpets and scatches on the walls etc. The usual coffee and tea in your room will cost you which... More
